A message from Mrs Carter
Hi Rowan Class,
I hope that you have all had a great week at home – it was lovely to see some of you in school this week too! Also, I hope you have been enjoying your ‘Be Awesome’ project which (don’t forget) will continue into next week as there are nine sessions.
Remember to look at the Rowan class page on Monday for a special message!
Have a great weekend in the sunshine!
Mrs. Carter 😊
I hope you have had a great week finishing off your memory books – they are something that I am sure you will treasure and look back at fondly in the future. The ones I have seen are amazing! I would especially love to hear about your fondest memories of your time at Myland so if you can send in any pictures of this page (or your completed book) to the admin e-mail address, that would be lovely.
The activities below are for the rest of term. There is one for each day and the sessions should be completed in order. They are all based on the book, ‘You Are Awesome’ (which you all are by the way!) by Matthew Syed. There are extracts included so you don’t need to read the whole book but if you do have it, I would definitely recommend it. Some of you may have already seen or read it because it was one of our ‘Super 7’ collection in the classroom. These daily activities are to help you prepare for your transition to secondary school and there is a workbook for you to complete after each session. Don’t worry if you can’t print this – you can just write your thoughts in a notebook, for example. This is the last set of resources we will be putting on the class page before the summer holidays (but look back next week for a special message!) so I hope you enjoy them. Session 6 is my favourite – some of you might remember my ‘bouncebackability’ assembly based on Tigger from Winnie the Pooh so will know why!
Have a lovely weekend – I hope the sun comes back out!

I cannot believe it is already July! It is also ‘World Chocolate Day’ on Tuesday (7th) which you know makes me very excited! I know lots of you have become master bakers during lockdown so maybe you could try something chocolatey this week. 😊
I hope you’re proud of the memory books you have created – the ones I have seen this week have been beautiful! Next week is the last week of these so it might be a good time to go back to the beginning and reflect on each of the pages you have produced. This will also help you finalise your contents pages.
We have attached the slides again that the children in school will be using – you might notice some repeats as we have different children in our bubbles so don’t worry about completing these twice, just focus on getting your memory book completed! Next week – there will be different PowerPoints for you to use each day.
Have a great weekend.

This week has been an absolute scorcher!
I hope you have continued enjoying making your memory books – I am sure you won’t be surprised to hear that Friday (today) is one of my favourites and I can’t wait to hear what you have enjoyed and remember about maths at school. Thanks for the continued TTRS challenges too! 😊
I know lots of you will be looking forward to coming back to school for 4 days over the next few weeks and we can’t wait to see you. If you aren’t coming in, don’t worry – we will make sure that what we use in school is online too so you don’t miss out.
I know that secondary schools have also been in contact with lots of you to introduce themselves and to help with any transition questions you have.
Remember, you can always e-mail the school if you have any questions that you want to ask us too – they get sent straight to me!
Have a great weekend.

It has been great to have the sun back this week (apart from some Thursday drizzle!) – I hope you have been able to enjoy it. 😊
I also hope you have been making good progress with your memory books now that you have all the resources you need. 😊 Don’t forget to send in pictures of the pages you complete as I would love to see what you have remembered and enjoyed the most.
We have updated the daily maths and grammar challenges for you for next week so we hope you are enjoying those if you are giving them a go each day.
It has been so lovely to have lots of e-mails from you and your families this week too.
Ziva – thank you so much for your delivery of treats – Mrs. Yearling and I promise we shared the flapjacks and cupcakes!
Jayden – your artwork looks amazing – what an incredible sunset!
Bailey – what a great den you made – it looked like it must have been hard work!
Poppy – your cooking looked really tasty!
Next week is ‘National School Sport Week’ which celebrates the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people’s wellbeing. The Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which aims to unite the country – families, schools, sport and businesses – in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation. Active Essex have also worked closely with the School Games Organisers team to bring you a challenge a day for the week that you can do at home. You can find all of these here: https://bit.ly/NSSWEssex
Thank you to those of you who have sent in messages for the final pages of the Year Book. Don’t forget to send these in to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also e-mailed your parents a letter last Wednesday so please ask them to check their e-mails 😊.
Have a great weekend.

Miss Pender and I have had such a fantastic week coming to visit lots of you on your doorsteps. We know it must have been strange to see us at your homes but it was so lovely to see lots of your faces and be able to bring you some resources to help with your memory books. We walked a total of 30 miles and every step was worth it to see your smiling faces (even on rainy Wednesday!).
Next week, we would really like it if you could e-mail us in a message (to email@example.com) that you would like to put in the final pages of the Year Book. It could include your favourite memory. If you have any photos of you (and your school friends for example, from Aylmerton or school events) to include with this message, then please send those in too. You might even have some photos from previous year groups that you could include. Please try to send your messages and any photographs to us by Wednesday 17th June. 😊 We will be able to share the finished Year Book with you at your Leavers’ event (as we said, we will do something whenever we can – even if it is later in the year!). Your message only needs to be short – for example “Thanks for a great year, Rowan! I will always remember performing our text map to the rest of the school in assembly, especially the ‘Power of 3’ sentence - Ilya leaped across the stream, dashed behind a tombstone and crouched as still as a statue! We had great moves!”
We have also attached some extra English and maths challenges for you to complete alongside your memory book project.
Have a good week – I hope the sun comes back out!
