Welcome back after what we hope was a restful and fun packed week away from school.

As ever in year 6 the pace of life continues at speed. This week sees the final year 6 assembly. Children will be getting their scripts to learn on Monday and this will be their homework. In keeping with the theme of our topic this term our assembly will have a Harry Potter base and we would appreciate it if your child could magic up a wizard costume for the assembly on Friday; a simple cloak to be worn over school uniform with a hat and a wand if possible. We would like these to be in school by Thursday for a dress rehearsal.

We hope many of you are able to come along to watch on Friday morning.

On a slightly different note, the time for consultations is also fast approaching and your child should have brought home your appointment time on the Friday before half term. If you have not yet returned a request slip and would like an appointment please see class teachers to arrange a time as there are very limited times still available.

We look forward to seeing everyone back, bright eyed and raring to go on Monday.

The Year 6 Team.

Friday again!

The end of a long week of assessments for all the children who have worked exceptionally hard throughout. The level of commitment to their papers has been really pleasing to see and the results achieved reflect their efforts. We look forward to sharing these results with you at consultations.

As we move into the final week of this half term we will be back to our normal routine of literacy and maths groups.
One highlight to look forward to next week is the Gym and Dance Display at Sir John Lawes on Monday afternoon. As we will be walking to and from SJL in whatever conditions the weather throws at us please ensure that your child has suitable shoes and a warm, waterproof coat to wear.

Many thanks in anticipation of the event to those parents who have volunteered to walk with us. We hope you enjoy the display. Having been in previous years we can promise you a real treat and we are sure that all those children who are involved in our own gym display later this term will come away inspired to try something new.

One week to go and we'll be half way through the year! Where has that time gone?
