I am missing you lots but I am enjoying seeing all your photos and videos on 'SeeSaw'.  Lots of you are completing the daily challenges as well as showing us all the other wonderful things you are getting up to whilst at home. It is a lovely opportunity to stay in contact, help you with your work and check on how well you are doing.
