We were so lucky with the weather for our Year 6 trip to Knebworth House on Tuesday. The children behaved beautifully and were certainly a credit to the school. It was a great way to finish our topic on the Tudors and the children were able to show off their knowledge and enjoy some really hands-on experiences. Please take a look at our gallery for a full range of pictures!
Yesterday, the children took part in a Year 6 bake-off, organised and prepared by the lovely Mrs Bennett. They have been working towards this class treat for many weeks and, during the day, their collaborative and organisational skills really impressed us! We have a lot of budding bakers who took pride in their work and were great at clearing up afterwards too. Mrs Bennett, Hayley and I all enjoyed tasting the results (as did the children) and had a tricky challenge in choosing our Bronze, Silver and Gold winners! Again, further photos can be found in the Year 6 gallery.
The children have come home with three SATs papers (1 arithmetic, 1 maths reasoning and 1 reading comprehension), which is just over 2 hours worth of work for them. Please could you support them in enabling them to have a quiet space to complete these at some point during the fortnight. Thank you so much. They definitely deserve a well-earned break over the holidays but hopefully they won’t mind keeping their brains ticking over a little bit with the run-up to SATs fast approaching. Hopefully, they’ve all got an exciting reading book on the go too; they are impressing me so much with the speed with which they are devouring books!
Have a wonderful holiday and hopefully enjoy some days out in the sunshine and lots of family time.
