Before we forget SATs week altogether, we must say how amazing the children were. They did everything we asked of them and we can honestly say that they couldn’t have been better – in any way. We hope they feel an enormous sense of achievement…
And now, onto the really serious business of Year 6 – the summer production! I’m sure you’re aware that this year’s show will be Mary Poppins. We do hope that you’re not sick of the songs already. As with everything this year, the children have approached this with enormous enthusiasm and maturity, and have made a fantastic start with rehearsals. We are very excited by their potential and feel quite sure that they will put some very hard work in to produce an amazing end of year show. July seems like a long way off but it’s actually precious little time to get such a big show up and running. There will be lots more information on this coming your way soon – for now, just dig out those flat caps and chimney brushes!
Of course, lots of other things will be happening, too. We have our trip to Portsmouth University coming up very soon after half term – letters will be coming to you shortly for this. It’s a brilliant opportunity for the children to catch a glimpse of what university life is all about and what it could offer them. Again, I know it seems a long way off but they’ll all be 18 before you know it. In fact, lots of the first year group of children to make this trip (7 years ago) are off to university, for real, this September. If our visit is enough to encourage just one child, then it’s completely worth it.
Have a great half term and, as always, if you need us for anything, just give us a shout. We very much look forward to seeing you all for the end of year celebrations.
