Late this time last year, Year 4 were in Year 3 and feeling a bit worried/excited and nervous about their transition into year 4. So, last year as a class, we wrote letters to our future selves thinking about what kind of people we would like to be, what things we would like to achieve during our time in Year 4. Together, we talked about how we can make all these things possible. Then, with a little bit of glitter magic, we buried our letters to ourselves.
Well now, the children’s time in year 4 has just about been and gone and we wanted to see if we have become those people we hope to become and if we have achieved those things we hoped to achieve and we dug up our letters. Even though they were a bit moldy, wet and a bit stinky (very stinky!) we were able to uncover our letters and have a read.
Here are some of the things the children thought as they uncovered their letters:
“I hoped I was going to help children who were being bullied…but no one was being bullied in our class! I do think I’ve become a kinder person this year though.”
“I wanted to get better at my spellings. I worked really hard. At home too! I did really well in my spelling tests.”
It’s really interesting to see how we’ve grown and developed as individuals and as a group. Now…on to year 5! 🙂
