Hi Year 4,
It was another busy day in school yesterday, as we worked on planning activities for the first week back in September. Although you will be part of the UKS2 phase in September I know that Mr Raven Hill and Mrs Garside have been busy planning activities for you too.
During that first week we are going to work on settling in and team building in our new classes. It will be a nice way to settle back into the school routine for us all.
Remember to send me an email to update me on what you have been doing this week.
