It has been lovely to welcome the children back after a well-deserved Christmas break. Year 6 have returned with determination, ambition, confidence and motivation and have dived straight back into their learning and into their SATS preparation. We are proud of the way the children have ‘stepped up’ and are showing their hard work in their lessons and with the extra revision that they have done over Christmas and have continued to do throughout the first half of the spring term. Keep it up Year 6!
Across school children have been having a ‘bagel and a book’ in a morning as well as having class, family time in the morning where children get to talk and get to know each other more. In year 6, this has been a nice part of the day where children have found time to relax and refocus. In addition to family time, school has resumed our celebration assemblies. This is a highlight of the week and two children from each class receive a value or a pride award. Every week, the choice (to choose just two children) is difficult as there is so much talent, hard work and ambition in the class. We would like to thank parents and carers. for your support, as for those who are chosen, it is nice to celebrate their success and for you to attend the assembly too.
A highlight for all of the year 6 teachers is playtimes, where we often (the teachers) get involved with the children's games. This term, we have played basketball, football and even some rugby at lunchtime on the yard. The children display some great teamwork skills and sportsmanship, and it is a pleasure to join in (or play against them) at one of their favourite parts of the day.
