What a busy week it’s been!
Children have had final transition visits to high school, we’ve been working very hard on our Leavers’ Show and we received our SATs results. Overall, we are very pleased with the results. For the most part, they were in-line with what we were expecting. The most important thing to note is that every child did his or her best. The children prepared well and put in 100% effort. If you require any further explanation about what the results sheet means, don’t hesitate to ask. There will also be more detail given in the end of year reports next week.
Our Leavers’ Show is getting closer and closer. We are nearly ready! Thank you for sending in costumes today. It is very important that any further costumes or props arrive at school on Monday when we will be having the first of our two dress rehearsals.
We would like to invite you to two very important events in the coming week:
- Leavers’ Show – Wednesday 17th July. Children should be dropped off in their classrooms at 6:30 pm for a 7:00 show. Once you drop off your children, you may find a seat. Please do not arrive any earlier than 6:30. Many children require school uniform for their “costume”. If that is the case, they should arrive wearing it on Wednesday evening.
- Leavers’ Assembly – Friday 19th July, 9:00 a.m. – This is a very special annual assembly for the entire school from Nursery to Year 6. It is an opportunity to share all of the wonderful events of the year and say good-bye to our Year 6 children. You should expect the assembly to last until about 11 a.m.
One final note about mobile phones – this week the children seem to have created a “Year 6 Group”. While this is great for keeping in touch once they all move on to high school, it has been causing problems for a number of families. Children have been on the group until 11:30 at night and then starting again at 6:30 in the morning. Some children woke up to over 1000 notifications. We’d like to ask that every family have a conversation about responsible, respectful mobile phone use when it comes to text messages. Thank you.

This morning, the children and staff from 6H and 1G enjoyed our final Reading Buddies session of the year. It has been a wonderful partnership of some of the youngest and eldest children in the school. We have loved getting together to share our love of books and many other fun activities. Today, the Year 6 children listened to their buddies read and wrote a lovely comment in their Reading Record. After that, we had a great time eating ice pops and having a final play together on the Infants playground.

Important Year 6 Dates July 2019
Leavers’ Party & Disco
The Year 6 Leavers’ Party & Disco will take place on Monday 8th July. Before the disco, all Year 6 children are invited to gather in 6S for a “bring and share” party tea. The children will eat together and have an opportunity to go out on to the playground before the disco starts. Children should arrive at 6:15 pm with their food contribution. The children have each been allocated a food item to bring in for the party. They should come up the farm track and enter the school through the 6S fire door. Tickets for the disco will be £2.50 (to be paid in advance). Mrs Walton has sent out a separate letter about the disco tickets.
School will receive the Year 6 SATs results on Tuesday 9th July. We then need to spend a few days checking them. On Friday 12th July, we will be speaking to children individually to share their results with them. The results will also be sent home to parents/carers that day. |We found this worked well last year – the children had a greater understanding of their SATs results and what they meant for them as well as how the results compared to the level at which they had been working throughout the school year. However, if you have any concerns about this please do not hesitate to contact us beforehand at school. Please also note that if you would like to come into school at the end of the day on Friday 12th July to chat about results, Mr. Sharp and Mrs. Heap will be in their classrooms until about 4:00.
The Year 6 Leavers’ Show will take place on Wednesday 17th July. Children should arrive at 6:30pm for a 7:00 start and go to their classrooms. Parents/carers may take their seats once they drop of their children. Children should arrive in their school uniform – we will speak to children who need a different costume.

Year 6 has had another busy week of Leavers’ activities. Everyone is working hard.

- Start to plan your costume for the show.
Props: We need a big appliance box. If you have one, please let us know.

This week, we started our very exciting Leavers’ Show rehearsals. The children have been working very hard to create something special for you!
They were given their scripts yesterday and homework for this weekend is to start learning their parts. They may also want to start thinking of actions for their song and what clothing/costume they need to wear. Most children will be in school uniform but some will need a specific costume. We’ll work together to find something appropriate.
To start with, does anyone have a long, white, bride/prom type dress and three coloured bridesmaid/prom dresses in size 6-8ish we could borrow please?
As a part of our Leavers’ surprises, we also need a “First Day of Reception” photo for every child in Year 6. If you don’t have a specific first day of school photo, any photo around age 4-6 would be suitable. Please email it to school if possible or send in the actual photo which we will scan and return to you.
