Primary 1

Hello boys/girls and parents/carers, 

I hope everyone is safe and well. The start of a new month-March. I am REALLY looking forward to seeing all the boys and girls back in Primary 1 next Monday 8th March. smileyCan I just take this opportunity to thank everyone for their hard work at home over the past two months. Everyone has worked incredibly hard. I am so proud of all the children. I know, as a parent myself home schooling has not always been easy but you have all done fantastically well. Below you can find the interactive links for this week's activities. Don't forget WORLD BOOK DAY is this Thursday 4th March. Special activities for World Book Day are outlined in your child's work pack. Please return completed packs next Monday 8th March, along with reading books at your child's bubble time. Please send any World Book Day pictures to my email. Don't hesitate to contact me throughout this week if you have any difficulties with anything.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Moore
