Wednesday 21st July 2021

It’s the last day of year 4 – can you believe it?! Instead of an English, Maths and other subject task today, we are going to celebrate the end of Year 4 with all sorts of fun activities! Remember to join our Google Meet at 10am today – it’s the last opportunity for us to all see each other in Year 4 and I would love to say goodbye to all of you, I promise I’ll try to not cry!! We will also have a special guest joining, so please make sure you join. Your morning challenge today is a simple one – send through your top three Year 4 memories to me. Mine are:

  • Meeting Janet the astronaut when her spaceship crashed on our field.
  • The first day back in March after the lockdown in Winter and seeing all of your lovely faces. 
  • Writing our Monster Slayer stories and reading all of your amazing descriptions – you have all totally smashed noun phrases, adverbials, post modification and adverbs!

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a more amazing class for my first year at Whipton Barton. Myself and Mrs Thomas are so proud of how far you have all come in the last year and can’t wait to watch you grow and flourish in Year 5. Keep being fantastic 4H, you are all brilliant - I will miss you all so much!

I have set you 3 fun activities to do today, all linked to our journey throughout Year 4. I hope you enjoy them.

Have a go at designing a class t-shirt - what exciting things could you put on it that remind you about being in 4H?
