First Class – Miss Evans 2019/2020
We made it to the end of the year! A very strange ending, it’s a pity that we didn’t get to go back for a few weeks. Not to worry, we had a great year and ye were such a pleasure to teach!! Thank you all so much for the continued work and weekly Seesaw activities. You all worked so hard and have earned a well deserved summer break!
As our Seesaw account expires on Wednesday, I will not be posting any new activities after Monday. I would like if you could think back on the year and fill in the following worksheet on your favourite first class memories. Please click here.
Also you could try and tick off some kindness activities from this checklist – here.
Our theme for the week is Under the Sea. Please find the activities here.
Booklists for next year have been emailed to all classes and are on the school website!
I hope you all have a lovely summer break and I look forward to catching up when we are back to school! 🙂
