Hello year 3 - very soon to be year 4! I hope you had a good break and I can't wait to see you on Thursday. Here is a message and a recording for you from Mrs Dowdall:
Welcoming you back to school.
Hello Year 4 – I hope you’ve had a great summer and have made the most of the lovely weather we have had.
It has been great to see some of you out and about in Potters Bar, and be able to say hello, but I’m very much looking forward to welcoming you all back toLadbrooke and things getting back to normal.
I hope you could tell at our ‘picnic’, how excited I am at the thought of having you back in school to start your Year 4 learning journey. I can’t wait to get started on the Year 4 curriculum. We have some lovely stories to read together and great topics to explore.
Your parents have received a letter which details how you will come into school on Thursday and what you need to bring, but the main message is to bring your water bottle and no big rucksacks,only a book bag if you need to.
We will still be using the cloakroom for your coats and your pegs are in the same place as last year’s Year 4s. That is one bay along from where you were last year. Your pegs have all been labelled and they are in first name alphabetical order.
Unlike previous years, you were not able to have an afternoon with me in the year 4 classroom,when we would normally go through the classroom layout and where your trays would be, but in many respects it is very similar to Year 3. You each have your own drawer to put your book bag in (if you have brought one) and your water bottle will sit on the floor under your desk. In Year 4 I usually have most of the desks in row format and this is how they will be laid out on Thursday. I will put you in a space, but this may change as the term progresses.
Unlike previous years, last year I have been into Year 3 to teach you on some Wednesday mornings, so I already know you a little bit and you know me, so that is a great start. So, that’s all from me for now, let’s all be ready to learn on Thursday! See you then.
