Week beginning 20th July

Dear Canada Class,


Just before you go on to Year 4 and complete Year 3, I just wanted to say thank you for being a brilliant class!  Even though our year has been interrupted and we’ve had to learn from a distance, I wanted you to know that I’ve enjoyed every bit of time that I got to share with you.  I have really enjoyed getting to know you all and been incredibly impressed by how you’ve coped over the last 5 months.


You should feel really proud of yourselves for the work you’ve managed to do at home or at school (if you’ve been in a key worker group).  The effort, commitment and creativity you have all shown has been staggering; proving again, just how remarkable you all are! I have loved seeing your smiling faces, along with the work that you have sent in, and your messages have literally kept me going!


I hope you enjoy these last two days of activities, which give you the chance to look back on what you’ve learnt and achieved this year, much of which would have been a lot harder without the patience and support from your amazing parents.  So please, remember to celebrate and thank them too.


I hope you have a fantastic summer and I look forward to seeing you safe and well in September.


Yours sincerely,


Mrs McGowan

aka Mrs MapleGowan



This week's learning schedule

We recognise that your child has worked extremely hard on their home learning and we want to give you the tools to enable your child to engage with their learning as much as possible leading up to the new school year. 


In this booklet you will find a set of short tasks for your child to complete independently.


These tasks are completely optional as we understand it is the holidays.  However, we also recognise that some parents will appreciate some activities to give their children a focus over the 6 weeks holiday period.


The challenge booklets should be returned to school when your child starts back in September so their efforts can be acknowledged and rewarded.


There is no expectation to complete every task, every day. For example, you might choose to focus on 3 of the short activities per day leading up to the new school year.

Whatever you do, have a wonderful holiday, stay safe and have fun with your family.
