Primary 3

Dear Parents,

It does not seem real that I am not going to be with my gorgeous P3 class tomorrow.  I will miss them so much but I am relieved that this will go towards helping to keep us all safe.  We have been asked to provide work that you can access from home and I will update this each week.  Parents can choose whether or not to complete this work, so please do not put any more pressure on yourselves.  If you have any questions concerning the work provided, you can contact me on my work email - jconvery795@c2kni.net and I will try to help as best I can.  In the meantime, please stay safe in this very worrying time.

Take care of each other,

Kind regards,

Miss Convery
