Tuesday 21st April 2020 – Learning at Home Together

Good Morning P4J and welcome back! 🙂 

I hope that you all had a good Spring break and that you enjoyed some of the lovely sunshine! During my holidays I learnt a new skill – crocheting – and I made an Octopus (I’ve added a photo below 🙂 ) Did you learn a new skill over the holidays or did you practice a skill that you already have?

Below are the tasks for Tuesday.
