Hello Year 4!

 

Hope you and your family are doing well. What a strange academic year it has been for all of us. We cannot believe we have not all been together as a year group since March! In many ways it has flown past but in others, it has seemed so long. How can it be the start of the summer holidays?

 

Just in case you haven't watched them yet, click on the teacher name below to watch the lovely videos your Year 5 teachers did for you.

The school year may have finished but there will be lots of Summer fun on Twitter for you to take part in. There is a taste of what is to come in the picture on the right. Our twitter page is twitter.com/fordbridge2013 (you can click to visit us!) We would love to see what you get up to over the Summer holiday! 

 

Check out the Summer Reading Challenge below. Below is a grid of ideas for you to do over the summer holiday, some of which you can bring in September for your new teacher.

 

Fingers crossed the sunnier weather is here to stay and we can spend some time outside. We are so pleased and looking forward to having you back in Year 4 for the day in September before you fly to Year 5. 

 

Stay safe and we will see you in September
