Hi Year Five,

Well, I don't think we were expecting the last academic year to be quite as disruptive as it was but you certainly rose to the challenge of isolation and zoom lessons.  I think that we are feeling a little more confident that the next academic year will bring more normality.  Fingers crossed we will see the return of school assemblies, school captain roles, the school council and a head boy and girl.

So, for those of you who don’t know me that well, I’ve worked at St. Michael’s for about sixteen years and in year six for ten years.  I have two children who came to this school but are both working now (you’ll hear more about them next year).  When we’re working hard, I like to have a calm classroom however it is important to have fun (at the right time).  I do like listening to music during some lessons as I find this relaxing. All I ask of you next year is that you are polite to one another and work hard as that way, I know we will have a fantastic year.

There are many exciting events for you to look forward to including transitions to secondary schools, residentials, exciting topics to learn about plus all the responsibilities that comes with being a year 6.

I am sure, like me, you are looking forward to September but in the meantime, have a fantastic summer and a good rest before the hard work starts.
