Happy Holidays!

  • Thank you for sending me all of your letters to Miss Jones. I think I have 22 now which is really good. If you have not managed to complete it there is still time to send it to me today!
  • I will be making phone calls this morning so if you get a no caller ID call - its probably me!
  • The settings on Mathletics have been altered to enable you choose the type of activities that you would like to do. This will enable you to practice over the holiday if you want to keep up to speed.  I will be popping some maths and English work on to a star for you to have look at towards the end of the holiday. There is also a revised book list for you. Do make sure you enjoy a book  over the summer. 
  • Finally I wanted to say how proud I am of all of you for working so hard over the last 14 weeks. It has been  wonderful to see how well you have succeeded despite the challenges. Have a wonderful holiday and I will see you in Class 13 when you return to school as members of year 6. You will never forget Lockdown and I will never forget you! Thank you for the kind gifts and messages that you have sent to me. I shall look forward to enjoying them over the holiday.   If you scroll up, you will see that there are two Headteacher's Awards for this week. I think they are well deserved.

Love and best wishes

Mrs Rossiter 

 

 

I know that you have been asked to read Good Night Mr Tom, ready for year 6. I suggest that the TV series with John Thaw was excellent and could act as a brilliant introduction. It is available for about £3 from Amazon and WHSmiths.  I bought it when Helena was reading the book in Year 6 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
