Hello Fourth class

Wishing Hope a very happy birthday, what a lovely day for a birthday!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the beautiful weather over the past few days.

I’m hoping to chat to you again this Wednesday using Zoom. I've sent an invitation to your parents with a meeting ID and password for the meeting. I’d like you to think of two questions for a fun quiz we will do on Zoom. Your questions can be about general knowledge, sports, animals…whatever you like. And if you have any jokes or riddles you’d like to share with us, that would be lovely J

My email is: if you would like to get in touch.

As Mr.Fogarty mentioned on the school website, we are going to start winding down the work for June. I won’t be giving a list of daily work. I’ll put up a list of work to be completed before the end of the week. If it's too much just leave out an activity or two.
