Great Missenden Church of England Combined School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust



Good morning all,


You’ve made it! Today, you’ll complete the last assessment of your last assessment week at Great Missenden. You’ve come a very long way and should be proud of yourselves.


We have one more week of distance learning to complete before half term…then it looks like we’re back to school! Mr Magee has sent out various e-mails so far detailing what measures will be in place to adhere to government and DFE guidelines and the year 6 team are meeting next week to discuss what the last six weeks of term will look like.


We will try to do as many of the ‘year 6 things’ you’ve been looking forward to all year. These may look slightly different and may involve lots of filming! But we will aim to make your last six weeks at school as fun as possible.


Whether or not you decide to come back to school after half term, this is not the end. Once we know it is safe to do so, we will be organising a post covid reunion! There is absolutely no way we can let some of you go off to secondary school and not have a chance to say well done for all of your hard work. And whatever is decided between parents and children, this will be the right one for your family. We completely understand that.


In other news… I got to see my mum this week for first time in months!! We went on a socially distant walk with Gwen in the backpack. I did have to put Gwen on my back before I met my mum as I knew she’s be tempting to break social distancing rules!!

Whilst researching for his VE newspaper report, Jasper in 6C come across some fascinating information regarding bombing in Bucks during the war. If you have a few minutes, it’s well worth a read. Thank you for sharing, Jasper.

Message from Ms Janovskis:

On the BBC website they mentioned an online game for children called ‘can you save the world?’ It is about the importance of social distancing. Players collect points for avoiding people and sneezes and collecting masks. May be worth checking out.


Enjoy a well-deserved break over the weekend and we’ll speak to you all next week.


Take care,


Mr Sperring
