Room 7 Work for 22nd-26th June

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. It was great to have a quick chat with you while you were collecting your children’s belongings.

It is hard to believe it’s the last week of senior infants, well done to all of you and your families for doing your best at home for the past few months. You have all done great!

We will continue to focus on getting outdoors and being active for this last week.

 

                   

As always, there is no pressure to complete all of the work outlined below. If you would prefer to print work rather than completing screen-based work, please pick and choose what you would like to do from this folder.
