PostHeaderIcon Homework For 1st Class


Dear First Class in Room 10,

Firstly, I hope you and your family are well. I’m sure things will be back to normal soon. Remember to stay active and help out at home! Are you all keeping up to date with your diary copy? If you’re not, there is plenty of time left for you to fill it up!

Keep up the great work you are doing with your counting, practice your cursive writing and play some mathematics and word games on the websites below. 

I hope to see you soon!

Mr. McAvinue
