*Please remember that your children do not have to do all of these tasks, these are just suggested activities. Their well being is what is most important.*

I would LOVE to see some of the things you are doing at home. You can keep me up to date by Tweeting pictures or comments to @MsMcConnellSfL and @Leith_Primary. Or you can email if you prefer.

Reading Tasks

*Unfortunately, there are no links to the Fresh Start Modules online. Miss McConnell has been busily photographing and organising all of the modules into files that will shortly be uploaded below for you to download. Check back shortly to access the files or keep an eye on Twitter to find out when they are uploaded @MsMcConnellSfL

*To make this page more user friendly, I have deleted the information and tasks that were on it before. All of the important resources you need should still be here. Please contact Miss McConnell on Twiter at @MsMcConnellSfL or by emailing her at the school if there is something you were using that is now missing.*
