Hello Cedar class,
Our school year has come to an end and we couldn’t be prouder of you as a class. It has been an absolute privilege to teach each and every one of you and we are so happy with the well-rounded learners that you have become. You have tackled each day with enthusiasm and the home learning that you have completed is to a wonderful standard. We have been so impressed. Sadly, our time together was cut short but it has been so nice seeing the memories you have made in emails and the experiences you have shared with us on the phone.
The year 2020 will go down in history and the memories you will have made will last you a lifetime. You got through this and we are so lucky to have been your teachers; you are so ready for the next chapter in your story.
So, it’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy your summer holidays because you deserve it more than ever. We cannot wait to see you all in September. You’ve got this Cedar Class. Stay safe, smile and remember that you are ready and you are amazing! See you when you are in juniors!
