* Mrs Russell was really pleased with how much you enjoyed her music session last week. Here is session 2 for you this week. I would love to hear from you again to find out what your favourite part of the session was and anything that you learnt from the session (Google Classroom). Mrs Jones is still setting you tasks on Charanga too. 


Remember to spend quality time with your family and try to do something to help at home, especially helping with the dishes this week. 
If having to stay at home has taught us anything, it really is how important our family are to us. Share your special memories, watch a film, read a book. 
It is also important to still exercise when you can too, so if it's dry - go for a walk, ride a bike with an adult, try Cosmic kids yoga or Joe Wicks. 


Enjoy these special moments with your family and I will look forward to us all being back together in class when we can be. I am very excited to receive your amazing work and of course to see all of your smiling faces in our live sessions this week. Keep being the best that you can be Year 4,
