Please feel free to complete these with your children beforehand, or at your leisure.
 
They will be updated fortnightly. 
Welcome to Keyne Class Home Learning Hub! 
Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to those of you who donated money for our Compassion UK sponsor child Patrick last Friday. So many of you were extremely generous and we have enough money to cover the next few months! Unfortunately, Compassion UK are not opening post at the moment so I will have to wait to send our letters to Patrick.  
Secondly, it's the Easter holidays!!! I'm sure it will feel strange staying at home and lots of you may have had to cancel plans, but hopefully you can still have a relaxing, happy holiday and make the most of the weather! I have uploaded some Easter resources you may wish to use.
I would love to see photos of what you are getting up to at home, both learning and Easter-related - one week down I am definitely missing you all! Please email me any photos and I will upload them on this page (please let me know if you would prefer for them not to be made public). 
Please make sure you are still reading every day and taking quizzes if your child is on Accelerated Reader. If you have any queries (or photos) please email me on bethany.harris@celticcross.education. 
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home!
Love Miss Harris
