Good Morning Year 4!

Today is the last day of the summer term and we just wanted to say well done on coping so well during this time.  We are SO proud of you – you have tried your best and your parents have been fabulous in assisting you with your learning throughout this time.  They deserve a big hug from you!    It has been a pleasure to be your teachers this year.  We have so many  memories of  our year with you all.

Thank you for your hard work this year – you have worked so hard and it has been lovely to chat with you and hear all about what things you have been busy doing.  Thank you for the wonderful gifts you gave Ms Varga and I.  We really appreciate your generosity.

Have a lovely day!

Enjoy your summer holidays.

God Bless and stay safe.

Mrs McNamara and Ms Varga

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
