Four Elms Primary School

Wednesday 6th January

Good morning,

I cannot believe Wednesday has come around so quickly, and that means its officially my last day! You will see me crop up on videos for the rest of the week but sadly I must now pass you over to Miss McCann’s very capable hands.

I have absolutely loved being your teacher and count myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to have you all in my class. Now I am not saying this in a video for fear of crying but…

For Year 6- I am so proud of you! Seeing how you have coped through everything the last year has thrown at you shows just how mature you are and what independent learners you have all become. I know I was the teacher who stuck around you for the longest and trust me when I say their loss is my gain. You are all fantastic individuals who I know will go on to achieve great things.  

For Year 5- I didn’t get to be your teacher for that long, but I am so excited that this time next year we will be back together again. You are all one of a kind year 5- hilarious, confident and the perfect amount of cheeky! I can’t wait to see how you all grow in a year.

Keep being yourselves guys because you are all fantastic just the way you are!

Please email me pictures of your work once you have finished and any questions to I really look forward to hearing from you, it brightens my day :)

See you soon hopefully,

Mrs Woolliscroft


(Btw well done to Mia who came first in our spelling bee, I have added 5 raffle tickets on for you. 3 for Adam who came 2nd and 1 for Isla who came 3rd)
