The Last DAY of Year 4 - Week 14 of Home Learning

last day.mp4

Darling, dearest Year 4s

I can’t believe it’s our last day of what has definitely been the most unusual education experience of my lifetime, and I am a lot older than you are!  The lockdown has been a HUGE thing for us all, and has had positives as well as negatives. Nothing beats real face-to-face teaching, but you have shown yourselves to be so much better than you could have imagined at the start of this year. You have all learnt new skills and developed resilience and shown love and generosity. You have learnt so much, and had so much fun, but you have also experienced sadness, loneliness and fear, boredom and frustration. And you will still have these bad feelings sometimes, but tell your grown-ups and they will help. You have risen to the challenge brilliantly, but it is still OK to NOT be OK sometimes.

Mrs C and I have felt so cheered by your emails and photos and work you sent us. We have loved chatting to you and doing videos; Mrs Cornelia’s video says it all. You are AWESOME. We are so glad to have taught you this year, in school and out, and we are really grateful for your lovely kind words in emails and cards, and your generous gifts. There are not enough heart emojis in the world to send you, but here are a few. heartheartheartheartheartAnd as Mrs C says, you can still email us both over the summer if you want to share something lovely or you have worries about September. You are an AMAZING class, we will miss you SO MUCH, but Miss Williams is really looking forward to teaching you next year.

This afternoon’s task is to reflect on lockdown and make a memory box, picture or write something, or make or collect keepsakes of this time. Harrison has made a lockdown memoty picture that I've put below to inspire you. You will forget what it was like, though you may not believe that at the moment. It is a difficult thing to have experienced, but it has made you stronger and better.

There are not one but TWO bitesize videos today, to fit in all the awesome films you sent in. 

In Part 1 we have Owen with his final trampolining masterclass, then Séamus with his puppy Solo and demonstrating his experiments, then we have Iris and Alannah showing you their trip to the Lake District last weekend, and Lily with a cooking show on how to make vanilla cupcakes. Then we have Ellen sharing the variety of loom band bracelets she has learnt to make, and Georgia Wicks making up for Joe Wicks being done for the summer by giving you a really well-planned fitness challenge. We don’t need Joe when we have Georgia.

In Part 2 we start with Sophia’s masterclass in doing chin stands, Harrison’s newest nature video (with baby frogs and toads!), Charlie demonstrating some impressive football skills and Jamie F sharing his book recommendations. Then we have Florence (with Órla) demonstrating the fun that can be had in The Dingle, we have Bella showing you round her lovely garden and finally Ayaan playing his piano from the Music for a Summer Evening virtual concert.

And finally, do you remember how awesome it was at Tattenhall? We’ve put the slideshow up of the photos from the trip to put a smile on your face.

With all our love,

Mrs R and Mrs C
