Well unbelievably we have come to the last week of the school year! Although it has ended in a slightly different way to usual, we both have good memories of you all in Class 3. For many year 5s, we have been lucky enough to teach you for three years and for year 4s, two years. You have been a fantastic group to teach, making us very proud and also bringing us laughter. We will look forward to seeing you when you return to school in Class 4. Have a lovely summer and take care.

Watch out later in the week for a message from us!

Week 15 July 6th

Well there's only 2 weeks of term to go in this school year - it seems very strange that we have not all been together for so long. The staff have all been very busy in school cleaning and tidying: cupboards have been sorted and resources organised, wonderful displays of different art work collected from each class make the school look bright and cheerful. We will look forward to welcoming you all back in September - we hope!

Many of you have done a fabulous job of keeping the Home Learning going - we know that it is not easy for you or your parents - well done to all!

We are in school with the Year 6 again - look out for us at breaks or in the afternoon if you are passing by school at any time. Wave and say hello!

Half term is over and we are back to work - still at home for the moment. We hope that you have been enjoying the fantastic weather as much as we have - plenty of time spent in the garden.

Hopefully we will all still continue to enjoy the sunshine in the coming days - aim to do some work in the morning and then make the most of time outside to enjoy other activities.

We are so proud of the way you are coping with these strange times, away from friends and family. Well done to those of you who are completing so much of the work we have set.
