We are so excited to be your new teachers next year and cannot wait to meet you properly in September! We haven't had the opportunity to do our usual 'meet the teacher' day this year, so instead we are setting you a series of tasks to get to know one another! Hopefully you will find them lots of fun and get to know your new teachers as well. We would love you to say hello and send us some of your work this week, so please email us your favourite 2 pieces of work, to email@example.com. Make sure you watch the video below from us too!
Take care, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Miss Hewitt and Miss Keenan have given you some clues about themselves. To solve the clues, you must answer the maths question and find the answer. Click on the ‘Figure me out’ activity below to find out more about your new teachers.
Day 2- Maths booklet
We have heard from your teachers that you are excellent at maths, so we would like you to complete this ‘Maths booklet’ so we can see how good you are too! We do not expect you to complete the whole booklet, and understand that some of the activities may be more difficult than others, so please feel free to pick and choose which ones you would like to do.
Day 3- Create your own maths board game
Using ideas of things you are looking forward to next year, we would like you to create a board game. Within your game you could earn more points if you land on something you are looking forward to about Year 4 and take away points for landing on any square without something Year 4 related in it or for something about Year 4 that you are nervous about
E.g. +100 points for representing the school +100 points for earning house points +100 points for being a classroom monitor.

Draw a picture of yourself as your chosen animal and write some sentences underneath about why you would like to be this particular animal.

We know lots of you will be feeling nervous about coming back to school- this is completely normal! Why not create a countdown calendar you could use at home, to cross off the days until you return to school in September. You could use the one below or create your own.
