The children have been very busy sending thank you letters to a range of people who have been into school to help us. This is a good way to practise core writing skills such as using paragraphs, correct punctuation, ambitious vocabulary and letter structure as well as showing the community how much we appreciate their support – some of the recipients even send a letter back! Here is just a flavour.
Dear Mrs Thorpe
Thank you for cooking all those mouth-watering, amazing, to die for meals, you’re like Gordan Ramsie as a girl. It must have been like feeding an army because it was bring a parent to school day.
My grandmother said “I’d never had a meal at school like that ever! “My grandmother really enjoyed the day especially the pasta making. I really enjoyed the dragon making because it was fun and exciting.
Lit quiz at Lady Manners
Dear Lin Smith,
Thank you for conducting the lit quiz; our team loved it despite not doing too well, there was a lot of competition!
I liked it at Lady Manners because of the authors who provided the supply of books for the winners of each round and most of all: the quiz master and the staff of course. It was interesting to see parts of the school.
We tried our hardest and had a good start on the galaxy subject. Now I’ve done the literacy quiz my knowledge has been extended massively although I’d spent a long time revising the practice questions!
Dear Mrs. Cocker,
I am writing to you to say thank you for taking us to Derby Cathedral in your own time. We really appreciate it seen as though we wouldn’t have been able to make it there and have an amazing time without you taking us there.
We also appreciate you buying us the delicious milkshakes and mouth-watering brownies from the cathedral café. My favourite part was making the posters for modern slavery. What was your favourite part? Luke said “My favourite part was the debate!”
Thank you for teaching us rugby. We have all enjoyed having you teaching us as well as learning new skills.
Our favourite parts were playing the amazing matches because it was exciting and really fun. We also liked it when the children lead the warm up because it was quite different. What was your favourite part?
We learnt that it`s easier to do short passes than long passes because if you do long passes then it`s less likely for the other person to catch the ball .We also learnt that you give the other team the rugby ball when it`s a side-line.
Thank you, we were very lucky to have you teaching us!
Your sincerely Y4 and Y5
Dear Mrs Hepworth,
The bonfire, I loved it, it was great in my opinion it was the best I’ve ever been to!
Thank you for organizing the bonfire I especially liked selling the glow sticks! Thank you for supplying the yummy food [it was really nice] you could have had more light so people could see and to have more fireworks. We can’t wait to spend the money on playground equipment (we really want pogo sticks!)
Your sincerely Daniel Binns
