CFC This week’s Theme is:

George’s Marvellous Science

A special message from my teacher:

Hello everyone

We hope you are all safe and well.

It is wonderful to see all the photos of your work that you are sending in. Please keep emailing them in. We cannot wait to see your brilliant and imaginative medicines you create this week and hope you have lots of fun making them?

Stay safe

Mrs Agar and Mrs Gilbert


Dear parents and children,


Please see below the exciting tasks set for this week.

While we have posted a suggested order (we know some people find this helpful). We have also included the link to the story on YouTube https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NHSQFuTz-8Q It is the Jackanory version read by Rik Mayall so please enjoy.

But please feel free to pick and choose what you want to do and when you want to do it.

Please remember: your child’s well-being is the most important thing to us. You may find that they are more inspired some days than other. Some days they might do no tasks. Other days they may wish to do more than one.


We also appreciate that many of you are likely to be working and juggling child care.

So our message is simple, do what you can and be kind to yourselves too!


We also value cooking, gardening, cleaning and a wealth of other things you will be doing as families.


If your child would like to share what they have been doing with us please email your photos etc to Snaith.primary2020@gmail.com (you can also email any questions or concerns to the teachers on this)


If you have any other concerns please do contact school on 01405 860452 or on Snaith.primary.eastriding.gov.uk
