It has been a real pleasure teaching all the children this year. Mr Owen and I are extremely proud of each and every child. Throughout the year, confidence has grown, mature attitudes have developed, risk-taking (both in the classroom and on residential) have improved and there are many others I could add to this list.
We hope that all the children have enjoyed their time in Year 4 and we wish them well as they continue on with their learning journey.
Many thanks for all the support from parents and for all the very kind gifts.
Below is a poem to reflect upon our year.
Reflections Year 4
There once was a class – Year 4
Who were anything but a bore
When the bell rang
Oh, the teachers they sang
And rush to open the door.
In Isaac a risk he takes
And learns by the mistake he makes
Next to him Nicky sits
Working hard to bits
He’s ready to learn when he wakes.
Poor Ripley he’s had a few bumps
Some of which have caused large lumps
Manpreet sure can chat
She needs to shorten that
But boy that girl can jump.
Dear Josh is next in line
Like the sun he always shines
Lewis it’s true
You work your way through
With handwriting that’s really quite fine.
In Filip an artist we found
With knowledge to totally astound
Theo drama’s your thing
We’ve heard you sing
Rockafella – such a great sound.
Oh Dylan what can we say
We’re more proud of you every day
Creation’s her thing
And she loves to sing
Pia’s homework has blown us away.
Hardworking and focused she is
Sachpreet has become quite a whizz
It’s plain to see
Ethan’s just lovely
And there’s nothing he likes more than a quiz.
Gymnastics and dancing at pace
All with a smile on Maja’s face
Albert be sure
We’ve seen you mature
A friend like you is just ace.
We know that sport is your thing
And Farai competition you bring
A head full of facts
Inside they’re all packed
And Thomas just loved to sing.
Isaiah it’s been a great year
Your reading has made us all cheer
She came out of her shell
And boy it went well
Humairah you conquered your fears.
So lucky to have taught you Kai
Make sure you aim for the sky
A challenge he faces
And through it he races
You’ve beaten us Alex no lie.
Martha we’ve been quite impressed
Your work is always your best
In Amrit we see
A professional to be
Such talent and so smartly dressed.
Norpreet not sure where to start
Your kindness and such a big heart
Maths he has nailed
And art was unveiled
Ishaan we’re glad to have been a big part.
Lori a good friend too all
Even better with a ball
Next door is Danny
Who’s really quite canny
If you need help then he’s who you call.
A delight in person is Grace
How we’ll miss that smiling face
Ben what’ll I do
My helper who knew
To put wires in the right place.
Be happy to move to Year 5
We know you’ll continue to thrive
It’s sad but true
The year is through
For your best you should always strive.
A smile, a tear we’ve shared
Be sure about you we cared
Good luck everyone
It will be fun
And PLEASE don’t swing on your chairs!
Mrs Freeman, Mr Owen, Miss Hale and Mrs Bharath
