Fourth Class

Dear Fourth Class,

Hope everyone is well. Are you busy helping at home? Maybe you are doing some cooking! Keep an eye on the website page because there are recipes on it that you have cooked with me. If you can, have a go at making some of them over the next couple of weeks. That would be a treat for everyone in the house. They would love to sample your cooking. Take a photo of the finished product too.

The lists of work I have made are just guidelines for you to follow. You don’t have to get everything done.

I want you to read the novel Matilda and do some of the nice assignments I set you in the lists of work.Send the assignment drawings to the school email address in an attachment if you can and hopefully we will be able to put them up on Facebook and the website. Wouldn’t that be great? I can’t wait to see what you draw as a new cover for the book.The cartoon strip of the story will be good fun too and I really am looking forward to seeing the poster you create advertising the novel! If you haven’t internet coverage (here at home my coverage is really poor) just keep the artwork you do and I will put it on the blog when we return to school.

Frazier and Roxy are very confused that I am at home at the moment.

They are quite demanding ,wanting lots of attention!

Keep well,everyone. Teacher is looking forward to seeing you soon.

Miss you all lots!!

Love Mrs. Wallace x
