Friday 27th March 2020 – Learning at Home Together

Good Morning P4J! 🙂

Sumdog: I am working on setting up Sumdog log ins for you all with tasks to complete. Log ins will be emailed out for P4J and P4W pupils after the Easter break 🙂

Thank you for the photos that were sent in this week – I have loved seeing you all working so hard at home! I know that some of you have found this week quite challenging and that you have missed seeing your friends and being at school, but please remember that we are all still part of the Buckstone Community. Even though we are not together everyday, we are still a part of P4J.  I have been so impressed by all of your resilience and positive attitudes! So keep smiling, keep learning and remember to ‘look on the bright side’! 🙂

Here is a selection of photos from our P4J community:
