Caradoc’s final week

Wow, what a final week we have had! We have had so much fun showing off what we have been learning in our lessons by making posters, and working together to make up our own PE games and playing board games.  We have also done some free crafts as well as playing one of Mrs Lewis’ alphabet picture games. We have watched the Year Six Leavers Assembly and took part in Holy Trinity’s got Talent. We also said well done to Mathew who was our values champion for being such a kind and caring boy, a great role model and showing resilience in his writing.

It has been a pleasure teaching your children this year.  Their progress has amazed us and they are all more than ready to start Year Three.  Thank you for the cards, gifts and kind words.  We wish you all a fantastic and safe Summer.

Thank you,

Mrs Thompstone, Mrs Morgan and Mrs Lewis.
