Dear Year Six (that is right - you are now Year Six!),
I hope this message finds you all as well as can be and enjoying the summer holidays. You have been very determined this year in spite of massive changes to your lives and school environment. Already, I am very proud to be your teacher and excited to have you in our class.
Tomorrow, I will be going into school. My aim is to set our classroom up and take photos so you can see what it will look like. Naturally, some walls will be bare as I await your arrival on Wednesday 2nd September - a teacher cannot fill the classroom if their students have not yet produced beautiful work.
If you would like to, there is an optional piece of work in the 'Classwork' section. It is a letter that you can write to me. You might wish to tell me:
- how your summer holidays have been
- what your final days of Year Five were like
- your feelings about coming back to school
- what makes you excited about Year Six
- something I should know about you to help me teach you in the best way possible
Remember to start your letter with 'Dear Ms Lankester' and end with 'Yours sincerely'. Your letter writing will take no longer than thirty minutes.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you all in a few weeks.
God Bless. Ms Lankester
