Hello children,

We hope that you and your families are keeping well. Hopefully you are enjoying the extra hour of daylight in the evenings. It’s good to get outside when you can. Please remember to include lots of playing in your days! We would also love for you to try some of these activities during the next two weeks.

Take care,

Ms.Hanlon and Mrs. Condron

Start a project!

Over the next few weeks, you could work on a project about a famous person who you are very interested in. They could be a famous person from the past or from today. You could look up some interesting facts about them and perhaps write about why you are interested in them. Headings could include:

  • Their name
  • When they were born
  • Where they are from
  • What they are famous for
  • Any other interesting facts or information about them
  • You could draw a picture of them

Please save your work carefully. We really look forward to seeing it and talking all about it soon!

Please note: For internet based activities please ensure your children are supervised while accessing the internet.
