P5 Home Learning: Tuesday 5th January- Friday 8th January 2021

Hello everybody. I hope that you all had a really lovely Christmas and that Santa came and I’m sure you also enjoyed playing in the snow that we had over the holidays. I’m so sad we are not all back together in school today but in order to protect us all and keep us safe we have to stay at home and work from there for the next week. I have given you activities to complete each day. As you finish them get Mum or Dad (if they can) to take a photo and send them to me on class Dojo. If you have any problems or difficulties, you can also get Mum/Dad  to message me on Dojo and I will do my best to help you get sorted. Do your best to do what you can. I know you are all brilliant workers and will give everything your best effort but I understand fully that working from home is not easy so don’t worry if there are parts that are very hard or you can’t do. We will work on it when we are back in our class together. So for the next week, give these all a go, try your best, stay home and keep safe. Hopefully we’ll all be back together next Monday. I can’t wait to see you all and hear all your brilliant Christmas stories.
