Well done every body! I am so proud of all Year 6 for their hard work, effort and above all cheerful attitude this week. They all took their SATs tests in a very calm and business like way – an excellent example to the rest of the school.
We still of course continue to work hard now to prepare for High School and Year 7.
On completion of the SATs the children have been working on their writing, art, French and computing skills. Well done Ayush in 6SK for an excellent maths game that was so quick and challenging that it got me a little flustered when I had to play it!
A few weeks ago some of the children completed a challenging Maths test administered by the UK Maths Trust – it really was quite difficult. Congratulations to all who participated and in particular to Alex O who has qualified for the next round against others in the country. Oscar and Benjamin achieved silver and Isobel D a bronze. Zain and Jasmine also did well.
Attendance has of course been excellent this week – which shows that it is possible every week – so please can that continue next week and onwards.
A reminder please that children are expected to wear black shoes to school, as this is part of our school uniform.
Could you please remind the children that they are not allowed to bring in their own footballs to play with at break and lunchtime – we have activities and equipment provided in school.
Homework – the children deserve a weekend off homework – however there is always reading to do and also any tasks that the children choose to complete in their voluntary homework books – write a description of the Royal carriage or design a wedding dress!?…
The hoodies have arrived and I will be sorting and distributing these next week. The children are then allowed to wear these for the remainder of the school year if they chose to.
Please continue with Robinwood payments, as the trip is coming ever closer.
Also not to forget the Pizza afternoon that Mr Moore has kindly offered for Year 6 on Tuesday afternoon – thanks also to Mrs Bentley and Mrs Walker for that.
Triathlon – Zain, Alex O and Isobel D – remember your kit for the Triathlon on Monday.
On Wednesday the class have the exciting opportunity of working on some drama with the Blah’s. This is in preparation for starting the rehearsals of our end of term production – watch this space for more information!
Some children have brought home letters asking for permission for them to help with the Reception new parents evening for Mrs Willis. Please sign and return. The evening is on Thursday 24th May and the children will be required from 6.15 p.m until 8.00 p.m
Lastly, it was lovely to see everyone looking relaxed in their own clothes today, have a good weekend – enjoy the wedding (if you are interested!)
Well done Year 6 for your hard work and cheerfulness this week. You all deserve to do really well!
Thank you to everyone who prepared us a lovely breakfast in our wonderful café.

Using the ‘Google’ Technique we spoke about earlier, describe this picture in the comments section below:
Year 6 had a visit from Jenna Downing on Monday who is a gold medal winning in-line skater. We started the afternoon with an inspirational talk from her where she outlined how hard she had worked to get where she is now. She also emphasised how she had had to pick herself up after various knock- backs to carry on doing what she loved to do.
The children then had a session of skating in the hall, with all the appropriate safety equipment.
It was a brilliant afternoon of fun and learning how to be resilient and to persevere against the odds. Some of us found it easier than others!

Britain’s Young Pea Chef of the Year 2018, in association with The Ocado Foundation, is on the hunt for aspiring young chefs to create a delicious dish using Britain’s favourite family vegetable, the pea!
Whether it’s a simple starter, hearty main or a wacky dessert, we’re looking for children to send us their pea-fect (see what we did there?!) recipe creations. You can be as adventurous as you like, the only thing we ask is that the Great British Pea is the star of the dish!
We’ve introduced three categories this year and want to hear from a wide range of budding chefs who think they have what it takes to become the UK’s Young Pea Chef of the Year!
The amount of peas grown in the UK each year is equivalent to about 70,000 football pitches and did you know, those little green guys have super powers!? They’re packed full of nutrients, including Vitamin A and C, which is essential for healthy gums and immune systems.
Good luck – let the greatest Young Pea Chef win!
