I hope everyone is doing ok. I really understand how hard it is to stay inside, we all miss going out to meet and talk to our friends but hopefully we will all be back together soon. Try your best with the work don’t worry if you are unable to access the links.

Be good for your parents girls, help out at home with jobs around the house and help any younger siblings to do their work.

Ongoing work:

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.
