Easter Holidays


Thank you for all of your support and interaction over the past two weeks. During this strange time, it has been brilliant to see what you have been up to. 


Over the next two weeks of the Easter holidays, we want you to enjoy yourselves and relax - we think we all deserve it! Therefore, we won't be uploading to the school website for this time, or providing any work. However, if you would like to do any work over this time then please refer to the list of useful websites that you were given in your packs. For any urgent questions, please contact the school office. When the summer term begins (Monday 20th April), new home learning activities will be posted onto the website each week. 


Happy Easter

From the Year 4 Team

Monday 30th March


Name one thing you are proud of. Well I’m proud of being a teacher at Monkston. I love how we all work as a team and try our best. I’m particularly proud when members of my class work to their full potential. When they achieve something through hard work and determination and never, never, never give up! This makes me smile inside.

On a personal front, I’m proud that I have jumped out of a plane! This was many years ago now. It was something that at the time really scared me, but I somehow summoned the courage to do it. I was only able to push myself because I had encouragement from a couple of my friends who also did it. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done ….although I’m not sure I could repeat now! I remember how it made me feel – with the right mind set and people by your side that anything is possible! Miss Sawyer 😀

We hope you had an early night so you’re all set to go for this week’s challenges. It is recommended that children your age get 10-11 hours a night. Sleep is so good to stay healthy because it helps your body and your mind. It gives our brains a chance to process what has happened during the day and allows us to restore our energy for the next day. I’m really enjoying a cup of warm milk and reading each night before I drift off to sleep. Perhaps you like to do the same? Miss Sawyer 😀

Today’s challenge is to give someone a compliment, so here it goes ... You’re doing great!
We wanted to say a huge well done to all of the year 4 children and parents. This week has been a massive change for us all and it’s great to see that you’ve been working really hard and staying safe. Keep it up! Miss Sawyer and Mrs Wood 😀
