Virtual Show & Tell Friday's
It would be lovely to hold a virtual show and tell with the children on Friday, in order for the children to show one of their Christmas presents to the class virtually. To do this, can you upload a short video of your child talking about their present and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If they don't wish to do a video, feel free to send a picture with just a few of their words.
I will collate these and add them to a Tapestry post for all the children to view on Friday!
