Its nearly Father’s day, it will be slightly different this year as you probably won’t be able to go out shopping to buy anything.  That doesn’t matter though, get thinking about what your dad likes and enjoys, talk to your mum and come up with a plan of what you could do or make him and get started next week. This could be making a card, a picture or even breakfast in bed. 


Next week some of the Cedars children are returning, talk to your families about how they may be feeling and also the children who aren’t returning yet.  Maybe make a poster or write a letter to show them you are thinking about everyone and the teachers.
