Hi Year 5!

I can't believe it is our last week of the academic year! It is a shame that we are ending the year like this rather than sharing the last week  altogether as a class. However, when we look back at the two terms we spent in class together, what a great time we have had with lots of fun, laughter and learning. 

I just want to say a great big thank you to all of you for all of your hard work both in school and at home. You are all amazing and are a brilliant class! Thank you to those who have kept in touch over emails sending me lovely messages, pictures and videos of what you have been up to and to those of you who have been taking part in the challenges and the online home learning. A big thank you also to your parents and carers for their continued support with this; your support is always greatly appreciated.

I know it has been difficult and we have been through very strange times but you have all been so brave and I am so proud of you all! I have missed teaching you and I am looking forward to seeing you all ready for Year 6 in September. You are going to make a fabulous Year 6!

It has been an absolute pleasure to teach you all this year- what a great class! Have a lovely and well deserved Summer holiday break and I look forward to seeing you all in September. 

Take care, 

Miss Kontic.
