Goodbye Maple...Hello Sycamore!

Tuesday 14th July 2020

Good Morning Maple Class!

We are in our final week! Can you believe it? Your final week in Year 4 and what an unusual year it has been!

This is our final push, we can make it!

How are you all feeling? What did you get up to yesterday? Did you spend much time outside in the sunshine?

I will continue to make phone calls this week. I am really looking forward to speaking to you and hearing about everything you have been up to! Don't forget to let your adults know that when I call it will appear as 'withheld number' or 'private number'.

I have also scheduled our last Zoom meeting before we break up for Summer. It is tomorrow at 5pm. I am doing it later this time so the children in school are able to join from home as we had some audio issues last time. Don't forget to send me an email address and include your name so I know who the email address belongs to :-)

 

Hannah has kindly asked for you to complete an online survey about Arts activities in our school. (Hannah has provided more information below the register box :-)

 

Please click on the link and complete:

 
There is also a survey for your parents/carers:
 
Thank you superstars!
 
 
Here are a few reminders:
Reminders:
  • Keep your home learning books safe so you can show them off in September :-)
  • Have a look for any reading books that belong to school and bring them with you when we return.
  • Email us a piece of work that you are very proud of (I'm sure there are lots!)
  • Complete the child survey for Hannah
  • Ask your parents/carers to complete the adult survey for Hannah

As usual, please sign the register and send me a message if you want to. 

Enjoy your learning, try your best and have a fantastic day!

Here is a questionnaire for your adults at home to fill in - please ask them to take a look:

This week's Writing Journal Challenge:

What are you looking forward to in September? What are your hopes for being in Year 5? Do you have any concerns or worries? Share your ideas with your Journal.

I would love to see your writing if you can send it in by email.   

Remember: aim for at least a whole page of writing.

There are no spellings this week as Friday is Toy Day!
