During SAT week, the Year 6 children are welcome to come in to school from 8:15 for breakfast. Please go to the main entrance and one of our staff will let you in.

We will also be completing a Practice SAT week, the week beginning 23rd April. The reason for this being, so that the children are fully prepared with what’s to come and they have the most realistic experience prior to sitting their actual SAT papers. We will be going through the papers once the children have completed them, highlighting areas of further study for the remaining weeks.

During this term, the children are continuing to have Commando Joe sessions on a Wednesday afternoon. Please can they have the correct equipment in school. Also P.E will once again be on a Friday afternoon, can all children ensure they have their trainers in their P.E bags as they are more supportive for doing outdoor games.

 

Aspirations Week

Following the success of last year, we are holding another aspirations week in Year 6. This is an opportunity for the children to learn about different professions and inspire them about their future. If any parents or friends of the school would be prepared to come in to class to speak about their profession or their experiences, please email me. Your help and support really makes the success of this event.

Building on our Aspirations weeks, the Year 6 children will emulating Lord Sugar with a mini business project.
