Write a letter that can be given to your new teacher… you don’t know who is it and it’s your mission to find out as much as you can about them by asking lots of questions. You also need to tell them a little bit about yourself so they can get to know you before you start in Year 5!

Draw two people on a piece of paper. One of these is you in Year 4 and the other will be you in Year 5. In the Year 4 version of you, have a think about these questions; What have you learned in Year 4? What did you enjoy the most? What is your greatest achievement? What will you miss? In the Year 5 version of you, have a think about these questions; What are you most looking forward to? What do you think Year 5 will be like for you? Is there anything you know Year 5 will help you do do/to be? Is there anything you are not sure about?
You will have watched lots of workout, dance and PE videos by now, but the real question is… could you do your own? You could plan a series of exercises, a dance routine or an energetic workout then record yourself teaching others. If you are feeling confident, have a grown up send it to us so we can test it out!
