Friday 10th July 2020

Good morning Year 4/5.

I can't believe that this is the last time I will message you as Year 4/5!  I'm sorry that I did not not get the chance to end the term with you all in person, but I am very proud of you all. I have enjoyed teaching you all this year (some of you for almost two years now) and even though it was shorter than usual this year, you all made me smile and wowed me with your hard work and achievements. I hope that you all received your reports by email on Wednesday- they reflect how great you have all been this year and how hard you have been working. If you haven't already, please do reply just to let us know that you have received yours. Even though it will be the summer holidays, if you still want to email us to let us know how you are doing, or what you have been up to, please feel free to continue to use the Y4/5 email address. Obviously we may not reply straight away, but we will keep checking in :) 

I will also be adding all of the amazing Talent Show entries on to this page later on today, so please do check back as there are some great talents out there in KS2!

 

I wish you all a safe and happy summer, and look forward to seeing you all back in September.

Take care and God Bless,

Mrs Cummins

Afternoon:

As it is the last day of term, we would usually be enjoying a class party together. This afternoon, you can organise and hold your own end of term party to celebrate with your family. You might want to make some decorations, make some special food, play your favourite songs to dance to, or play some party games. Have fun!

 

I have also left Wednesday's Art activity, in case you didn't get the chance to have a go.  (Thank you for the great photos some of you have sent to me of your own foil sculptures)

Mrs Shoker thought you might enjoy making these Giacometti inspired tin foil sculptures.  Please do check with a parent before you use up all of their tin foil! I would love to see your finished figures so send a picture to our class email y4y5@st-thomasmore.leicester.sch.uk.

Dear lovely Y4/Y5 class; I hope you are all doing well and having fun at home as well as working hard within your self-schooling. If you are baking or having good times outside in this gorgeous weather we have been having recently, send us some photos please, so we can see what you are up to. I can’t wait to finally see you all in our classroom, which I hope will happen very, very soon. Please keep your fingers crossed as much as I am. I miss your smiley faces, messy tables and fantastic ideas! Please stay positive, look after yourself and your loved ones. God Bless you all, Mrs. Baranowska
