Year 6

Update for Week beginning : 15.07.2019

What a week!!! Thank you so much to all of you who came to see our production this week. We could not have been prouder of the way that the children performed, sang and acted their way through the show. We thought they were brilliant! Next week information about ordering a DVD ( and hopefully a link to a download version ) will be sent out and we are very grateful to Mr Sparrow and Peter for filming and reproducing this.

We have also received our SATs results this week and another massive well done is due to the children for the excellent progress they showed in their results over the course of the year. So many of them peaked at just the right time and it was lovely to be able to share their results with you at Parents’ Evening .


Other curriculum news:

We have now begun practising for our final Leavers Celebrations on Thursday . Please, please do make sure that you and your child are able to attend if possible – it really is a lovely way to send them off. Leavers’ Celebration Evening will be at 7pm on Thursday 18th July preceded by a special Eucharist in the afternoon at  1.30pm . You are very welcome to both.

Please do make sure that PE kits are in school this week as we will be making the most of the good weather and getting out for some extra sport at the children’s request!

General Information:

Outdoor PE will be on Tuesday afternoons when we will generally be going to Kings Park together with Year 5. Please ensure that suitable kit, including tracksuit bottoms, is in school so that we can all participate fully.

Indoor PE will usually now be on Thursdays.



We would like the children to make a presentation all about their lives so far. This can be any size but no bigger than A1, and can contain photos, stories and memories to share as we move on. These will be put on display at the Leavers’ Presentation Evening. Please DO NOT bring any into school until the week beginning the 15th July – with props and scenery and costumes galore, we have no room to store them!!


Key Dates

Thursday 18th July – Leavers’ Eucharist service ( afternoon) and Leavers’ presentation evening, 7pm



Any questions, please do catch us in the playground.
