Class 12

In year 6 your new teacher will be Mrs Scott and you will be in class 14. Mrs Scott has sent you all a very special message.

Mr Burke has sent you all a mission letter

Are these yours?

Friday 17th July

Good morning children,

Well, we have done it, we have reached the end of the year and what a year it has been! Each class I teach holds a special place in my heart but I have so many fabulous memories of you all this year. We have had lots of reasons to laugh and have fun.  Thank you so much.  You have genuinely been one of the loveliest classes that I have ever taught.  You are so kind to one another and compassionate, I have no doubt that you will all grow up to be wonderful individuals.

To you parents, thank you for you continual support and for being so fabulous during difficult times throughout lockdown.  Considering the challenges we all faced, you supported your children and taught them so many additional lifeskills that although their learning may have been interrupted, they were nurtured and  you helped them to build resilience.

Thank you also for the extremely generous gifts given to each of the class 12 staff.  They were incredibly thoughtful but completely unexpected. I truly love teaching and being with children, whilst the job has it's challenges, the job satisfaction by far, outweighs the challenges.

So, once more, in my final message, I cannot thank you enough, children and adults alike.

Have a safe a relaxing holiday.

Whatever you do today, have a lovely day.

Love

Mrs Walsh

Our challenge this week is to to find the letter. Which letter has been hidden in the picture? Once you have decided on the letter, identify the 5 objects. Good luck. May the force be with you!!!!

You have shown such an interest in the Jane Goodall work that I decided to show a few movies and pictures that you created.
