Finish your project. I gave you the option of doing a project about a country in the world or a project about something that interests you whether it be about an author, a book, a person, a film, a hobby, historical figure or even a topic in science that interests you. I look forward to seeing them.
I would really recommend keeping a diary during this time. In years to come, this will be a time you will look back on and tell people about (even your own children or grandchildren). A diary would be a lovely way to remember everything that is happening,
I won’t be in touch with you over Easter. Enjoy your two weeks off.
Have a good Easter.
