Well we've made it to the last week of term of this unprescedented year! Congratulations everybody!
Thank you for all of your hard work, incredible resilience and determination to continue with your education be it at home or in school. What a year we have had and I hope you have some wonderful memories to treasure.
This week we shall be reflecting on our time in school and continuing to work on our transition to the next stage in our educational journey. Have a look at the transition activities for your age group.
I have added work onto purple Mash too for you to complete.
If you are writing a speech either about yourself (Year 6 pupils) or a year 6 (Year 5 pupils). Please can you complete this and record yourself, sending it via email into admin by Tuesday please. I hope to collate these for a You Tube video of our virtual leavers' service later this week. Don't forget to tune into the diocesan leavers' service on Tuesday morning using the link below.
If I don't get to see you at the end of the week, please do have a fantastic summer holiday. Pray for beautiful sunny weather and keep yourselves safe and well.
I look forward to welcoming back the year 5's as year 6's in September and I wish all the year 6's good luck and best wishes in your new high schools. Please do come back and visit us.
Have fun, Mrs Corradine
Diocese Year 6 Leavers Service
Please see below for a link to join this service, which will take place on 14th July 2020 at 10.00am. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact me. It may be helpful if you talk to your Y6 child about any worries or concerns they have about moving on to high school before the service.
In preparation you will need:
A jar/box with the words from 1 Peter 5:7 on the jar/box
“Leave all your worries with Him because He cares for you.”
Week Beginning 6th July 2020
At the start of another week in school we look forward to exciting learning opportunities.
Our focus this week is moving on and transitioning to our next level of education. For some, this means a change of school, for others a change in class teachers and class rooms and others a change in year groups. We want your school transition to be as smooth as possible and we're here to help you do that.
Above you will find lots of transition activities and booklets for moving to high school.
Follow the link below for more transition activities.
As usual there are daily activities on Purple Mash for you to work through. This week's topic looks at World War One through a short story 'Nightfall on the Somme' where we follow the story character Neville as his unit travel to France and are sent into the trenches.
I have added the week's instructions below.
Week beginning 29th June 2020
What an exciting week. Not only is is National Children's Art Week, we have more children starting in our bubble getting back to a 'new normal'.

Why don't you have a look at the work of an Artist and create a piece of your own art in their style and create a fact file about this artist.

It is International Nurses' Day on Tuesday 12th May. With this in mind, I have created a folder of activities and informative powerpoints for you to work on this week. I have put a quick link to the folder below.
Now, even more than ever, we need to show how grateful we are for all the work that nurses, and the rest of the healthcare profession, do so try out some of the activities to find out more about their work and how the NHS started.
I have put instructions for this week's work on Purple Mash in a pdf document below too.
