Year 6

Weekly Update of w/e 14th July 2017

First of all, a massive thank you and well done to all of the children for their fantastic performances of our play. Their behaviour backstage was impeccable and they were incredibly well organised with their props and being in the right place at the right time. They did a fantastic job and we are incredibly proud of each of them for their hard work and dedication to their roles. We hope that any of you who came to see it enjoyed yourselves!  There are photos of the full cast on the  gallery on the school website.

We also hope that the children enjoyed their first day at their secondary school on Thursday, and are feeling confident and ready to move on.

Next Week …

The homework projects which we have seen have been excellent so far. This week we will be hearing any who we hadn’t managed to get round to yet. Another well done for the hard work which has gone into these!

Phasels Wood

We will be going on our final Year 6 trip to Phasels Wood on Monday next week. The children are to wear their own clothes as they will be taking part in a range of activities. We will be leaving soon after registering the children so please ensure you child arrives at school at normal time. We will aim to return for 3pm. Also, if you have said you will provide your child with a home packed lunch, please put it in a bag or container that can be thrown away while we are there. We hope it will be a fantastic day packed full of fun.

Sex and Relationships

We will be holding our Sex and Relationships talk on Tuesday morning next week. If you wish for your child to not take part in this, please let the office know as soon as possible.

SATs Results and Reports

The children’s SATs results will be sent home with their reports on Wednesday next week, alongside teacher assessments for this year. With these results you will receive a letter explaining all the assessments and how the scoring works. If you are still unsure about anything to do with their results, please feel free to speak to us.

Leavers’ Assembly

We will also be holding our leavers’ assembly on Thursday at 2pm. This will be a chance to look at some of the achievements of the children and share some of their fondest memories. We hope to see you there.


During Assembly this week we reminded the Year 5 and Year 6 children about using their phones, tablets and other internet enabled devices safely over the summer holidays. We focused on safe use of images; encouraging the children to think about what they are sending and how these images may be viewed and by whom. We also reminded them to think about checking the settings on their apps as settings may change with updates particularly with regard to location and privacy.  Our key messages can be seen below.

If you have any questions about updating settings for some of the well-known apps or for any other e-safety advice guidance can be found on our school website under curriculum and computing/ e-safety.


As the children have worked so hard on their projects over the last few weeks, there will be no homework this week. However, if your child has not quite finished this, then they need to have this completed as soon as possible so they are ready to share it with the class.


Please ensure your child has their PE kit every day next week.
