Hello Class 2! I hope you are all ok and had a lovely week! 
I have had a very busy week making lots of phone calls to you all which has been lovely! It has been great to hear about all the wonderful things you have been up to. It was lovely to hear how hard you’ve all been working so well done to you all! I am so proud of each and every one of you! ☺️ The new learning page is just below this message, enjoy all the new activities! I would love to see the work you complete so please remember to upload your pictures to Twitter or email them to the teachers email address. I am missing you all very much and hope to see you all soon! 🌈 Please remember: I may not always be there with you, but I am always here for you 🌈 Take care and stay safe! Love from Miss Mckeon 😊

This week it is Mental Health Awareness Week. We want you to think about ways you can be kind and caring. For example; playing nicely and sharing with your brothers and sisters or helping mummy and daddy around the house. Below this message you will find some fun activities to complete. If you would like to show us your work, or tell us about your acts of kindness this week you can use the teachers email address - teachers@ghyllgrove.essex.sch.uk or upload your photos and messages to our school Twitter page - @Ghyllgrove.
