Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I am looking forward to teaching your children over the coming year. We have such exciting topics in Year 4 and I am looking forward to see all the fantastic work that the children will produce. It has been an extremely challenging time for everyone and I understand that many of the children will have anxieties about their return to school. I want to assure you that as the class teacher nothing is more important to be than the pupils happiness and well-being. Although there are changes to the school environment the classroom will be what it always is, a place of creativity, learning and fun!
