The end approaches...

Again another very busy week has come to an end with many of the children taking and passing both levels of their cycling proficiency during the week. This was especially difficult this year as the course had to be reduced into 4 days due to the secondary transfer day on Thursday. Well done to all who took part despite the weather that did its best on some days to rain you off!

Speaking to the children today we are convinced, as if we weren't before, of how much they enjoyed their transfer day and are eagerly awaiting that move on to pastures new. However they have one last week as primary school children and as usual in year 6 the week ahead is another busy one. So a few reminders to both parents and children:

Please make sure your costumes for the concert are all in school ready for our dress rehearsal on Monday.
Also, please can the children bring a spare carrier bag into school so we can continue with the clearing up of trays and work from around the classrooms.

For parents, your attendance at our Leavers Concert on the evening of Tuesday 17th July would be much appreciated. We kick off with an auction of your children's art work- those fantastic canvasses they created in groups as part of their Harry Potter work are up for grabs- bring your bidding hand and cheque book!
The concert will follow the auction.

On Wednesday we depart for London, children should have brought home a letter with final details today.
After an early lunch we leave school at 12:00p.m. in order to arrive in plenty of time for the matinee at 2:30p.m. Children will need a bottle of water to take with them. Traffic being what it is in London we aim to be back at school by 7:00p.m. but if there are any major changes to this you will receive a text.

On Thursday, we would hate to let up on our aim to keep our children busy up until the end so we have planned a Smarties Investigation Day. Something we hope all the children will look forward to.

Friday will be an easy day when non electrical games may be brought into school. If children would like to get a shirt signed as a memento of their time at Crabtree please make sure they are wearing one shirt and bring an alternative one for signing.

We look forward to an exciting and busy final week of term.

The Year 6 Team.
