Happy Friday all,


It’s been a pretty wet end to the week but I hope you used the opportunity inside to catch up with friends on Zoom or even dust off some board games with the family. I know there are a few people in 6S who are tackling daily jigsaws. This is a great idea. Fingers crossed we have some dry spells today so you can complete your relay races!


We have an exciting week next week in what should be our final week before our SATs... As VE day is celebrated on Friday 8th May, we will be providing a range of activities and tasks linked to it alongside the English and Maths. This will be in place of the usual PSHE, Art, Science etc… On that note, next Friday is a bank holiday, and as a result, we will not be issuing any distance learning to complete so it’s a four-day week 😊


Later on today, you may read the newsletter where Mr Magee is discussing the feedback provided by teachers to parents and children. Just in case you don’t have a chance to read it, I’ll summarise below:


Maths – should be self-assessed and we may ask you to complete corrections if needed.

English – we will highlight one area we particularly like. However, if it is a reading comprehension, this may not be necessary.

Topic / Science – Acknowledgement of completion with a comment.


You may notice – the feedback you’re receiving from the year 6 teachers is significantly more than the above. It’s because we love speaking to you! However on days we are in school or swamped with reports, you may notice briefer feedback. This is not because we are not impressed with your work!


The stars of the day yesterday were Hannah in 6S for her meringue baking, Oliver in 6K for his chicken coop building and Miss Collier for delivering a ‘socially distant’ birthday surprise for our amazing Miss Cartwright:

Reminder from Mrs Lee – the closing date for the thinking hats competition is TODAY. The details for this (along with other amazing DT ideas) can be found on the DT distance learning page.


Have a great weekend 😊
