Message from Mrs. OJ 

All that is left for me to say is thank you so much for all of your support this year; it has been a pleasure to teach such an amazing, fun, dynamic class – I have loved every minute of it. The children have been on a great journey this year and I am so proud of their achievements. They are such a wonderful class and I wish them all the best on their journeys. Thank you also to the wonderful parents who have been so kind and supportive. It has been a pleasure to work alongside all of you. I wish you all the health, happiness and success for the future.




Thank you messages from the class:

Dear Mrs. Vigus, 

Thank you for being part of my school life. You have always been there for me everyday and when you came to teach some lessons in Year 5 - it was my favourite time!



Dear Miss. Jones, 

I wanted to write to you to say thank you. You were always there for me and never cared if I got something wrong, as long as I tried. Your smile just lit up my day. You were one of the kindest people I have ever met. I hope I see you again.



Dear Mrs. Jones, 

I wanted to say thank you for helping me. You gave me the determination to get better at everything! I always remember a time when I was sad and you came and sat with me - that made me really happy. Thank you!



Dear Mrs Jones,

Thank you for helping me in all the lessons that I struggled in - you were always there for me.

Dear Miss. Evans, 

I wanted to say thank you for never ever letting me give up. You have always been there for me and have made a huge impact on my learning - which I don't think you hear enough! You're amazing and I hope I'll see you again!



Dear Miss. Evans,

Thank you for helping me in class when it was hard and when I was down you would just smile and everything would be fine.



Dear Mrs. OJ, 

Thank you for everything - I will miss you a lot! I have enjoyed every laugh and joke with you

Dear Mrs. OJ, 

I wanted to take this time to say thank you for helping me grow and supporting me all the way through Year 6. You have been an amazing teacher and your support is amazing. I will miss you so much!



Dear Mrs. OJ,

I want to take the time to say thank you for always being there for me and making me overcome my fears of singing and boosting my self-esteem. Even your smile can make a sad clown smile! Thank you for making me a better person and helping me grow. You're cheesy but it makes us all laugh and glow!



Dear Every Teacher

Thank you for the best years. If I could freeze time and stay I would.

Alfie has been working hard this week also and by Wednesday had been working his ay through his maths, created a ration book and also done this week's project work which he based on a blue ringed octopus.... inspired by his brother Reggie's playmat that is under the sea 😊. He also made a mars bar slab made with rice krispies and has been chilling in the hot tub!! Sounds like a great week Alfie!

Macey-Lou has been making a memory garden for her mum which looks beautiful. She has also create a beautiful detailled sketch. 

Olivia has written an excellent news report which can be read below.



A local school has been left devastated after a boy’s supernatural experience. The boy, described as teen age with medium fair brown hair was seen leaving the school wearing a checkered shirt under a beige duffle coat, red woolly hat and gloves. A teacher, who wished to remain anonymous, was at the school at the time of the incident and was left scared and shaken. She alerted the police who were quick to respond, however the boy left the scene as the police arrived. We spoke to eyewitnesses, Trudy and Janice, who were jogging in the local area when they recall seeing the boy cycling hurriedly on a red bike towards nearby houses. Armed police raided the boy’s home shortly after the incident and were confronted by the boy who then used his powers to pick up some house keys; ran out the door into a neighboring wood. The uncertain police chased after him using searchlights to help. After a long time, they finally caught up to the boy and told him to get on the floor. Feeling frightened, he did so and suddenly, a kind of force field shot out from him. “Knocked me off my feet, it did” exclaimed an outraged policeman who was at the scene.

Reported by Olivia
