Miss O Connor/Mrs Kearney:
Have a games night: if you have a board game play it with some of your family.
If you don’t have a board game you could play The Land of Nod. The Land of Nod is a game where you make up the rules. You played it in your class one day. For example: only some people are allowed in the Land of Nod…. mammies and daddies but no sisters and no brothers. So only people with double letters are allowed in. And you can make up more rules like that.
