Weekly Update – 17.05.2019

We are all glad the week is over! The children have worked incredibly hard throughout the week, as well as in the run up to SATs, and we are so proud of them.

Following SATs week, we have launched our ‘End of year challenge’ for Year 6. The purpose of this challenge is to give the children the opportunity to raise funds for their end-of-year activities. This challenge follows the format of an enterprise project, where the children take on business roles. Once we have received a successful bid – following the Dragons Den style pitch – we will be providing the groups with an initial investment of £5.00. It is their challenge to be as profitable in their venture as possible, in order to grow their investment.

This project is child-led and should require minimum involvement on your part. However, we do ask that you are as supportive as possible in this venture. Most of the project (including planning and preparation) will take place during school hours, however undoubtedly some groups will be organising and discussing elements of the challenge in their own time.

The children have spent time today working on their initial ideas and we have been impressed with the creativity evidenced. Their ideas will be put to the test next Tuesday afternoon, whereby each group will pitch their ideas to the Dragons. If the children would like to bring a change clothes for their pitch, i.e. smart business attire, they are more than welcome to!

Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask Miss Woods or Mr Crew.

We are now able to confirm some definite dates for your diary – please keep them free! Further details are to follow.

Dates to remember:

  • £5 enterprise fundraiser event : Friday 28th June, 3.30 – 5.00pm
  • End of Year 6 leavers event : Thursday 18th July, 5.00 – 8.00pm
  • Leavers assembly : Friday 19th July, 10.00 -11am

Next week, the focus will return to producing writing evidence for end-of-year assessment. Although the children have completed their SATs tests, we will continue to work on other aspects of the curriculum.

Next week is also “Walk to School Week”. We look forward to as many of you as possible walking, scooting or cycling. The J.R.S.Os will be handing out stickers on the gate for extra incentive!

If you have received a letter regarding the girls 4x4 football tournament, can you please return the reply slip no later than Monday please, or contact the school office directly, thank you.

The school Photographer will be in school next Thursday 23rd May to take class photographs of the children so please ensure they are wearing full school uniform with a red cardigan or sweatshirt please.

Finally, a reminder that it is a Staff PD Day next Friday, the last day of term is Thursday 23rd May and we will return on Monday 3rd June.

We hope the children enjoy a well-earned break this weekend, thank you for your continued support,

The Year 6 Team
