You are a very special person,

And we want you to know…

We always will remember you,

And all the fun we shared.

Please come back and visit us,

As through the years you grow,

Try hard to learn all that you can,

There is so much to know!

The one thing we tried to teach you,

To last your whole life through,

Is to know that you are special,

Just because you are you!

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Good Morning Leopards and Pumas,

Welcome to wonderful Wednesday. I had a lovely talk with a friend yesterday who always worries about making mistakes with their work. They worry they won’t get their work correct, they worry their work won’t be good enough and they worry that others will think their work is not worthy. I thought I would post these thoughts for you to think about today. Failing at something does not make it wrong; it is how we improve and make things better. Only by making mistakes can we create our masterpieces! It took JK Rowling 6 years to write her first Harry Potter book. She had to rewrite it several times! Thank goodness she did...

   

   

Today we would like to see an example of your topic work. You can email your work to us here, but please remember to give us consent to put them online: year4@holyroodprimary.co.uk

Tuesday 14th July 2020

Good Morning Leopards and Pumas, 

 

We hope you had a good night’s sleep and feel refreshed and ready for a new day.

Did you know it is Bastille Day in France? On the 14th July 1789 an angry mob freed the political prisoners in the Bastille prison. This brought about the end of the monarchy dictatorship, which had been very cruel to the ordinary people of France. Therefore, France began a new dawn as a republic and abolished its monarchy forever. This is celebrated on the 14th July ever year.

Good morning Year 4, I hope that you’re all safe and well! I wanted to write to you today as it will actually be my last day at Holy Rood for a while as I begin my maternity leave! I’m currently waiting for my little girl to make her arrival in a matter of weeks…. that’s if she doesn’t keep me waiting J

 

Due to the current situation, I haven’t been able to see any of you to wish you the best of luck for the rest of the year, to see you on your way to Year 5 and say "have a great summer!" However, I know that your Year 4 teachers and TA’s will do plenty of this for me! I have loved being your teacher this year and I promise that I'll come into school and see you all as soon as possible… I may even bring the baby if she behaves!!
