First Class Activities Week 2

Hi First Class,

We hope you enjoyed doing some of the activities we sent you last week! Thank you to the children who have sent us photos of their work. We will post them here soon. We would love to see some more photos of your work so keep sending them to us.

The Easter holidays are coming soon and although the new rules mean we can only be with the people who live with us for a little while, take this time to relax, play games, read books and have fun with your families!

We miss you all and can’t wait to get back to school again. If you would like to send a message to your friends and teachers via email or attach a picture, we would love to hear from you.

Happy Easter to you all! Ms Bennett has sent you a postcard


Remember to be "Germ Smart"

Ms Beakey, Ms Bennett, Ms Coghlan, Ms Dunphy, Ms Gibbons, Ms King
