During this busy period of Advent, as we approach the Christmas holidays, all the Year 6 staff would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Christmas.
As well as their normal lessons, Year 6 are working hard on their contribution to the KS2 Christmas production. We hope as many parents as possible will be able to join us next week. If you want to support your child, the lyrics for the songs are now in the Homework folder.
Despite chilly and damp weather conditions on their residential trip, all the children rose to meet every challenge right up until the last activity on Friday morning. A selection of photographs from each day's activities has now been uploaded. Some of these are now on display in the Year 6 cloakroom area and, later in the year, the children will receive a disc containing a more comprehensive collection of photographs as a record of their week away.
We are currently working on producing the children's personalised Target Cards. This is a new format designed to not only set targets for the children to aim for, but also to allow them to celebrate their progress by marking their steps on the journey towards the endpoint. Again, watch this space... (If you would like a preview, there are some sample examples in the Curriculum folder.)
Many of you will have seen the amazing owl mural that our visiting wildlife artist Rory McCann has painted at the bottom of the stairs. A wonderful array of 'eyes' - the children's artistic responses to his expert workshop- now adorn the opposite wall. If you would like another look, there are some images saved in the Photographs section.
All the children should now have the Reading VIPERS information fixed into their reading record book. A copy of this can be found in the Curriculum section. We encourage all children to read regularly at home to support the work they are completing in school.
