So, our time together has come to an end It’s been a great year, and I’m going to post a separate post looking back over the past year etc shortly, but wanted to get the ‘practical’ things ‘out of the way’ first!
WOW- did you know that this year, this website has been viewed 36,668 times and you have all left 3,3,75 comments!
I’m SO pleased that you have all got involved in the site, and I do hope you have found it useful, fun and generally a good thing to have.
I am VERY keen not to ‘loose’ you, or push you out from the site- so I want to say straight way that you are more than welcome (infact, I want to encourage you to) visit the website over the summer and next year, and to get involved, comment and generally be ace like you are this year! So please don’t feel like you can’t do anything because you are no longer in my class.
The site will obviously change over the summer- none of your work, posts or anything from this year will vanish though- it’ll just get moved into a separate part of the site, which you will be able to access through the menu’s and/or by searching.
Your accounts will stay active- and if you want to, you can still write posts, share work etc… Your log-ins for Sumdog, aviary etc will also still work. And I will still give you any HP’s or Merits I offer!
But whether you decide to still add work, posts etc- still do drop by and comment- 4H will love to see you around! Music/Art of the week will be starting back up again in September, and it’ll be especially great to have your super responses- you have got so good at responding to music/art that I would love for you to show 4H the ropes! If you want to choose 4H’s first ever music/art of the week, let me know- It’d be great for us to have the first one (or first few) ‘chosen’ by 5H! It’d also be great to get year 6′s comments (that’s you lot!) on my new year 4′s work throughout the year!
I’d also like you to be around on the website over the summer- but more on that below…
I’m posting a challenge a week on the website over the summer break- this is partly to get some of 4H used to using the website etc- and, of course, to give people something to do if they get bored (I remember the summer holiday’s when I was your age well- great for the first few weeks, boring after!)
I’d love for you to take part in some/all of them too if you want! So check out the website and have a go- the first one will appear this Saturday.
I’m also going to ask 4H to ask any questions/tell me what they are worried about etc about next year on a linoit and in the comments to a post- and it’d be great if you would be willing to keep an eye on these and add your thoughts to anything 4H ask/say- afterall, you all know me and have had me for a year (now just remember to tell them I’m really mean, never give out any merits or HP… ) - so you are in a good position to answer anything! You’ll see a post to 4H about this at the start of next week, and if you reply to anything they say, I’ll give you 4HP for each reply, and a few merits if you reply to a few! (so you can start of the year with merits/HP’s already!)
Messages for 4H
Some of you asked if you could leave messages for 4H- I’d love you to, and did put up a linoit for it a few weeks ago-
the link to it is here- so feel free to add messages for 4H!
Clubs next year
Well, OK, I say I’m saying goodbye to you, but I have a feeling I’ll still see lots of most of you in the different clubs etc- just so you know, next year I’m planning on…
- Keep Twist N’ Turn going- T+T (as the staff are starting to call them!) already know about this- this will be on Monday and Friday lunchtimes.
- Running writing club again (there is NO WAY I wouldn’t after the amazing writing you did last year!)- which will be open to year 5 and 6 again (with a few year 4′s invited)- and I know lots of you want to get involved this year-we’ll have out first meeting in the middle of September- but it’s never too early to get thinking about plot ideas etc (but remember, the rules say you can’t start to write it till November!)
- Running a drama club-something I never got round to this year- but this will be after Christmas.
- ICT club will run again at some point too- and will be open to year 5+6
