P3 Home learning

Welcome P3 Superstars !

Hello P3, we hope week 2 of home learning has gone well. Next week marks the beginning of our Easter holidays so it's time to relax ! We know the Easter holidays will be a bit different this year but you can still have fun and enjoy spending time with your family.


Perhaps you could build an indoor den or help with chores around the house. If you are playing in your garden you could go on a minibeast hunt or even build a Bug Hotel ! You can keep looking for bears and rainbows on your daily walk and read your favourite book. If it rains you could always check out our favourite author Julia Donaldson on BBC iPlayer - look out for Princess Pearl and the Gruffalo! Miss McWilliams and Mrs Connery are planning to relax by watching an Easter movie like Hop and eating an Easter egg, or two !


Keep sending your photos of your home learning, we love seeing them and it really makes us smile. Scroll down to see some photos.smiley


To all our P3 grown ups you have been doing a wonderful job with home learning and we hope you have a relaxing Easter break as well.


Keep safe, take care and don't eat too much chocolate !

From Miss McWilliams and Mrs Connery
