Class Teacher: Miss Smailes  |    Teaching Assistants: Miss Swan and Mrs Finnigan

Well what a year! You have all been such a fabulous class to teach and I am incredibly proud of how we have begun to adapt to the new normal! Some of you have come into school throughout the holidays and the duration of lockdown to continue your learning and show us you can be safe and sensible as our lives continue to alter. You have become so resilient and strong through this; this time isn’t anything we will forget soon.
I enjoyed getting emails from some of you about all that you’re doing at home. If you wish to continue to send me notes on how you’re doing over the summer holidays, you can —>
For those of you who are moving up to year 5/6, I have met with Mrs Clark to discuss all of your needs to ensure you have a flying start in September. For those staying with me, I cannot wait to see you again soon!

In January, we were lucky to have the superstar player Darren Stephenson and Vernon the Bear visit us from Stockport County!

We learnt about healthy eating, regular exercise, and what it was like to be a football player 100 years ago.

Thank you to Stockport County for a fantastic morning in class; see you at the match in February!!
