Dear Year 3,
I hope you’re well. It seems like we’re going to be continuing on like this for a little bit longer. I wonder how you all are. I think about you every day. I hope you’re managing to keep busy and learning some new life skills while you’re at home. Well done to everyone who is using Purple Mash, keep it up! If you haven’t yet then go and have a look, I’ve sent new 2Do’s and there’s more to come still.
I hope you’ve managed to watch some of the videos I’ve shared for you on Facebook and on the website. I chose to read Alice in Wonderland because it’s one of my favourite books. It’s all about Alice who goes on an adventure and when I read it it makes me feel like I’m going on an adventure too, even when I’m still at home. I shared it with you because I want you to feel like that too.
I have also uploaded a book for you to read to yourself and your family. It’s called How not to go to school. I hope it makes you smile and reminds you that you’re not alone in this.
If you watched my art video on zentangles, give it a try and send me some photos! I’ll be setting up a 2do for you to share some on Purple Mash. Try to decorate the mendhi hands using zentangle patterns! I’ve uploaded some of the bookmarks that I’ve been making for you. You can print them off and colour them in.
Those of you who have shared what you’ve been doing at home, I love seeing photos of what you’ve made and how you’re spending time with your family. I try to comment on as many as I can so keep them coming. I miss you all very much. Try to stay positive, keep smiling and stay safe.
Love from Miss Naseer
