Friday 3rd April

Good morning all (from Mr Sperring),


I have to say this is not exactly how we thought we'd be going into the Easter holidays... But we've made it and you've completed two terms of year 6. Regardless of what happens next, I want you all to know: we are very proud of you. You are literally history by being part of this. This has never happened before and I guarantee will be taught in History classes 50 years from now. You'll be able to say... 'That was me.'


The majority of today's blog will be taken up by everyone's favourite Deputy Headteacher -  Mr Tang. He has composed a message to the school:


Happy Easter everyone! Well done for all your fantastic work during Distance Learning! The teachers have shown me so much of your incredible work and I am so impressed by the effort and creativity you're all putting in. Superb work so far!


You all need a break to recharge your batteries and enjoy a rest. However, if you find yourself at a loose end over Easter, I've found loads of great Easter activities to keep you busy!-

There's Easter colouring, puzzles, writing, Maths, cooking and much, much more! I've also included the Orienteering activity I did with Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. You can print it out (or copy onto paper) and show your parents how to play- it would work well around the house and garden!


Mrs Lee has devised some really exciting DT Challenges you can do Easter- you can find these on the Distance Learning DT page- well worth a look!


Mrs Phipps has also passed on a 'Well Being Calendar'- this is a great resource to help you de-stress and be mindful during this period.


Please do not send any Easter work to your teacher's emails over the Easter break- like you, they need time to recharge their batteries and be with their families. They're also busy planning some more exciting Distance Learning for when you 'return' after Easter.


If you produce anything amazing using these resources and would like to show me, please send via your teacher's email after Monday 20th April- they will forward it to me and I'll reply.


As always, you should be reading every day and keep up your times tables- we'll be checking the Numbots and Times Tables Rockstars League in the Summer Term!


I miss you all! Stay safe and enjoy a well earned rest.

Mr Tang


It's been a very creative week with short burst writing tasks in English and on Wednesday Miss Cartwright challenged you to focus on a  task/project of your choosing. We have been blown away by the responses. To name a few (with pictures and videos underneath)... Marley in 6S for her cat in space, Raphael, Ella and Dante in 6K and Alex in 6C for their poetry, Oliver in 6K for his chicken coop, Ben in 6K for his motorised vehicle, Ty in 6S for his Thunderdome farm idea and model and Amber in 6S for her workout video. Great job from everyone who completed the tasks. It was a lovely way to finish off the term.

So I suppose all that's left to say is have an amazing Easter, rest up and we hope to see you very soon!
