Happy New Year everyone! 

Its a different start to the year than expected but we must ensure everyone stays safe. It was rather late when the Prime Minister decided to inform of this so please allow me some time to add work on to google classroom for you. If there are any problems you all have my email address. I understand using Google Classroom isint always easy so just try to do little and often as much as you can.

There will be a box outside of the school front door with a Literacy book and a Maths book if you wish to record in these. It might be easier than working on the laptop and you could post a picture of it on Google Classroom or write a comment to say how you got on with it.

I will be prioritising Maths, Literacy and Phonics, whilst carrying on with our topic work on Toys in the past. Please continue to read as much as you can as the progress made was amazing and Id like to carry on where we left off as soon as we are back in school. 

Hopefully you should of all recieved a personalised message from me by the end of the day with any extra hints/tips/work but please understand I have 4 children at home with me, one of which has no unnderstanding of whats going on- so I wish us all the best of luck. x
