I hope you are all enjoying your time at home! I know this is such a confusing time for everybody and I would like each and every one of you to know how proud I am of how you are handling all of this and you should be very proud of yourselves!
Your hard work this year so far has been amazing and I know you will all continue to work hard until we are back together in our lovely classroom again. However, I don’t want anybody to worry (including parents), about completing your work as, like I always say, learning comes in all shapes and sizes and right now it is also very important to spend precious time with our families and enjoy making memories together!
I would love to see what you are all getting up to during this time so please keep tagging our class page on twitter @misskeeganNP. You can also use this page to get in touch with me if you would like any help with any of your work!
I am missing you all lots and can't wait to see all of your smiley faces soon!
Stay safe, have fun and continue to shine!
I know how much you all love reading and listening to David Walliams’ stories and I thought you would all like to know that every day at 11am, you can listen to a story by clicking on 'Elevenses with the World of David Williams'.

Now Year 4, I know I have set lots of work for you to complete but many of these are just suggestions. I don’t want anybody feeling stressed or worried about how much work you have to do as there is no set amount needed from anybody. I want you to enjoy your work as you all know that you learn much more when you are having fun! Always remember, you can learn in many different ways so you could use this time off school to learn how to cook, how to play a musical instrument, to perhaps learn to speak another language, to learn about nature and lots of other wonderful things. The most important thing is to have fun while you learn!
See you all very soon and I am sending a big, virtual hug to all of you!
