Update 9th July 


Dear Year 5,


As we approach the end of term and the end of your Year 5, I wanted to write to express a few thoughts and feelings.


Although this is not the way we expected this year of school to happen, I am still so proud of how so many of you have continued on your learning at home and managed to show such enthusiasm for coping in such an unplanned situation.


Your families have done such a great job in supporting you, and contacting me to share in your successes and struggles. It has been a pleasure to see the photos and hear about the work you have enjoyed completing at home. (I have included some certificates in this week's resources to celebrate your achievements.)


Remember all the good times we had until March 20th together and I hope you have enjoyed spending more time at home, together with having learnt something about yourselves through these strange times.


I look forward to seeing you in Year 6 around the school, and hearing from Mr Gregory how you are getting on.


Maybe some of you will write me a reply?!

Take care,


Mrs Kirby (your proud Year 5 teacher)smiley




I miss you! Mrs Kirby....
