To Year 1

It is the last week of school before the summer break, which means your time in Year 1 is coming to an end. I know year 1 hasn’t ended how we thought it would, but I would just like to send a little message to you all saying how proud of you I am. Every one of you has worked so hard this year and all the work you have completed proves this. I have really enjoyed teaching you all and I wish you lots of luck in Year 2! Remember always work hard and do your best. Make every piece of work something you can be proud of!

See you all in the classroom next door in September.

Enjoy your summer holidays!
