Transforming lives by living and learning together in God's love

Jellyfish - Year 4

A lovely letter from Miss Nixon

 

Dear Jellyfish class,

Hope you are all keeping safe and well. I have been missing and thinking of you all and have enjoyed looking through some of the wonderful work you have been doing at home. It’s lovely to see all of your photos!

Currently, it is a strange time to be living in. It’s ok to feel worried or confused. Maybe even a little scared. Just know that each and everyone of you is special, brave, and brilliant! We will get through this!

It’s the perfect time to get creative, learn something new or improve on something. I know it’s hard not being able to see some people who are important to you, friends, and family. But stay connected! Write them a letter, send them a message or video call them (with your parents/carers permission, of course). Stay in touch!

I have been keeping myself busy. I’ve been on lots of walks, done lots of work and projects in the garden and have been enjoying the sunshine (when it’s out!).

I’m also going to be training to become a teacher in September, so have been preparing myself.
If you believe in yourself, work really hard and have the confidence in yourself, you can achieve anything or do anything you’d like to do. You can be an astronaut, a teacher, a nurse, a doctor, a dentist, an artist, a hairdresser, a unicorn or even an alien. (Maybe not those last two ). You can achieve anything if you set your mind to it!

I hope you all continue to work hard, wherever you’re learning from . Hopefully, we will be able to see each other again soon. But for now,

Continue to stay safe, stay positive, be good and be kind.

Best wishes,

Miss Nixon

Work for the 1st - 5th

Hello Jellyfish and welcome back to the second half term of summer.

 

You may notice a few changes to the website this half term. This is because school is opening for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. This means that more teachers will be in school each day. Miss Kidby has asked Mr Harrison and me to work together on the website and spend more time in school supporting key workers children.

 

So, this week I am in school all week and Mr Harrison has put most of the work on the website for all of Year 4.

Next week Mr Harrison will be in school and I will put the work on the website.

 

I will check to see if you have sent me work to mark each evening, so it may take a bit longer than usual for you to get feedback or for your photos to appear on the website.

 

Take care and stay safe,

 

Mr Waterman

RE - 17th May was Rogation Suday

Rogation Sunday is the day when the Church has traditionally offered prayer for God’s blessings on the fruits of the earth and the labours of those who produce our food.

 

Can you write a prayer thanking God for the things that we plant and grow and for the farmers and factory workers who produce our food?

 

If you have a packet of seeds at home, why not plant them this week? It's not too late to start planting and growing.
