***Home Learning***

Hello all! It has been so long since we have been together as a class, but hopefully this will not be the case for much longer.  Until we can go back to school, it is important that we remain in contact with you and your families.  As a result of this you will be receiving a quick call from me this week (if you haven’t already!) just to catch up and see how you are getting on with the home learning.  You will also be able to email me on 2b@blesseddominic.barnet.sch.uk​ if you have any questions about any of the work set. I wish you all well and hope to see you soon, 

God Bless, 

Miss Keegan, Miss Brown and Mrs Creagh. 

 

As next week ought to be half term, there will be no work set.  Please keep reading and completing some of your workbooks from your packs if you’d like to! Wishing you a restful week.

Miss Keegan.
