Edel’s class

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.

I have outlined the work below for the next 2 weeks, but should they not complete it all, then it’s really no problem. I completely understand that each child works at their own pace and every family are operating under different stresses and pressures at the moment. Take it easy on yourself and your children. They might not remember what you taught them during this time, but they might well recall how you handled it

Any questions or queries, you all know how to contact me!

Guím togha na sláinte oraibh go léir,

Edel
