Final farewell…

It is finally the end of your first year in the Junior school. Although this wasn’t the way any of us hoped or expected it to end, I hope you all enjoyed the time we had together in year 3! Mrs Attree and myself are so impressed by the resilience and independence you have shown while working at home and in school for those of you who have been in.

I wish you all the best of luck in year 4 and know you will have an amazing time with Miss Leete as your new teacher! Remember to show her how super you all are with your attitude to learning and knowledge.

I will still be around the school and look forward to giving you a smile and a wave when I see you, and I hope you will still come to chat to me at break times and around the school.

All that is left for me to say is to have a wonderful summer holiday, stay safe and I will see you (from a distance!) in September.

I am SO proud of you and will miss you LOTS!

Summer holiday challenge

Happy last day of term!

As it is now the summer holidays, I won’t be posting on the blog as much. I would still love to get emails and hear from you all and I will do my best to share things when I can.

Here is your final challenge from me this year.

Go through the challenges and find one that you are going to try over the summer holidays. Let me know how you get on!

Daily challenge 85 (17.7.20)

As the end of the (strange) school year approaches, I think it is time to thank your parents and the people at home. They have become your teachers during this school closure and it’s only right they get appreciation for this! Try making them a card or doing something nice like breakfast in bed for them to say thank you.

Today I would like you to listen to this piece of classical music and draw what you can imagine as you listen. We did this in music this year for ‘In the hall of the mountain king’ and you were brilliant!
