Writing for a younger audience.

Over the last few weeks Year 6 have been looking at writing for a younger audience. We read different tales written by Beatrix Potter, studied the format of them and then wrote our own stories in the style of the author, as well as this the class painted watercolour pictures of their stories. To finish off the project the stories were made into books.

Year 1 were the audience, we had a lovely story time on Friday afternoon, everyone had a great time listening to four different adventures.

Values Activity Week

The week has begun successfully with all the children and staff enjoying a day of Bollywood Dancing with Kalpesh. It was a great experience and so lovely to see all the smiling faces of the children. We ended the day with a whole school performance on the playground with the parents as our audience.

The children are now experiencing 15 different activities based on our school values. Each day they are rotating through five sessions based inside and outside of the school. I’m sure there will be more photos posted in the week so you are able to see what we have all been up to.

Thank you for all the amazing plants for Mrs Budgett’s activity, Creativity. We are creating beautiful space for all the veg, strawberry plants, herbs and plants you so kindly sent in.

You are all invited to see a whole school performance on the playground at 2.30pm. Please come along if you can but park in the church car park. Remember not the lay by so the buses can park.

SATs Year 6 are very happy!

A massive well done to Year 6, they have finished their SATs and have been superb throughout the week. Everyone has tried their hardest and worked to the very best of their ability. I couldn’t be prouder of them.

Thank you to everyone (parents, careers and staff) who have supported the children. Whilst not everyone agrees with the process, it is a good start for the children learning to complete the tests in conditions they will face each year at High School and even for further education.

We have survived the process by eating cake! Thank you to all the wonderful bakers this week who have helped lift the spirits of the children after each test, we’ve had an extremely yummy selection.

A last big thank you to all the parents who have encouraged their children to attend the twice weekly booster sessions, these are a valuable time where we can work more closely with the children who need a boost in some areas of the work we cover. I know some of you have had to rearrange your work commitments so you are able to collect your child, we greatly appreciate this.

Work doesn’t stop here, as I write this the children are working hard writing about this whole experience using all their writing skills.
