Happiness is spending time with family having lots of fun
Happiness is drinking tea and eating chocolate buns.
Happiness is going on a walk with my mum
And bringing along Toby who likes to run.
Happiness is playing with my friends at the park
And we never play out in the dark.
Happiness is going to meet Mickey Mouse
Oh how I wish he could come to my house.
Happiness is playing my x-box
It is playing football outside
Happiness is when my magazine arrives
And cooking dinner
Happiness is going on holidays
Knowing my family love me
Happiness is being me
And knowing there are more adventures to come.

Welcome to our P3/4 HOME LEARNING ZONE. Parents please read the letter to parents below and P3/4s have their own special letter where I encourage them to write to their friends using the top tips and format. SImply click on the red text and the documents will open. I will be posting tasks on this web page on a weekly basis. The tasks will be a mixture of purple mash actvities - which will be set up as 'To Dos' on your child's account - and activities which can be assessed from here. I can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org if any of the children would like to send samples or pictures of their work. Daily tasks will be set but these can be completed at any stage during the week. Please stay safe and remember we do not expect you to be teachers. Spend time learning together and let the children show you what they can already do. I will give you links to more reading and web resources below.
