*New message*

Dear Year 5,

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge 'Well done!' for getting through your Home Learning over the past four months. I know working from home and not being able to come into school to see your friends and teachers has been challenging at times but you have been resilient and this has made me very proud! Although it has been a while since I have taught you in the classroom, I thoroughly enjoyed having you all in my class. I hope you all have a wonderful summer holiday and I look forward to seeing you all in school in September!

Mrs Strong 

P.S. There will be no Home Learning timetable on here during the holidays but you should continue to read regularly, write your own creative stories and visit TT Rockstars! You can also continue to work through your different workbooks.
