Hi everyone.

I hope you have all had a great weekend. Thank you to everyone who joined the class zoom on Friday. I think the children enjoyed it, they all spoke which I was really pleased with and it was lovely to see them all. I am planning on doing another this Friday at 11am again. I will send a message to all parents via parent app just before 11am on Friday so you can all join in if you would like to. There is no pressure to join if you are unable to or if your child is not keen. There is nothing to prepare for this week. I have found some different games we can play this time. If you have any issues or want to chat to me about it, please email h.quinn@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk.
