We’ve made it to the last few days of the spring term! It’s always the worst: plagued with coughs and colds, dark evenings and too much hard work But the brighter evenings are with us now, and the really hard work is all but done. I know I’ve said it already, but the children really have worked their socks off. They have remained focussed and driven towards the end goal, and I really hope that it will pay off during SATs week.
Over the holidays, the children should come home with login details for a website called Spag.com which focuses purely on revision questions for the grammar paper. We are not expecting them to spend their holidays slogging away on this site; they are purely for revision purposes. Two weeks is quite a long time for a break, however, especially as they have been so immersed in school work since January. The idea is that the children can ‘keep in touch’ with what they’ve been working so hard on, and that they can maintain the high standard that they have reached this term. We would ask that they spend a little time in the two weeks reminding themselves of the task ahead in May – there’s bound to be a rainy day or two when they are complaining they’ve got nothing to do: Well, they have!!
Don’t forget, they also have the three revision books as well. The children are now free to complete whichever pages they would like to and whichever pages they feel would be of most benefit over the holidays.
On a much more exciting note, we have started to plan all of the exciting summer events that have become such a rite of passage for our Year 6 children. They will find out what we’re doing at the end of SATs week and rehearsals for the show will start immediately. And, in keeping with tradition, I like to make the production a little bit bigger and a little bit better every year – I’m not sure if the children know what they’re letting themselves in for, but I can guarantee it will be a busy, crazy, amazing last few months of the school year. I wonder how much money I can get away with spending…!
The summer ball is also in the diary now, and we have booked a great trip to Paulton’s Park for the last day.
Thanks to everyone who came to see us for Parents’ Evening this week – it really is a great opportunity to catch up and let you know how lovely they can be at school! We very much look forward to seeing you all again for the end of summer term fun, if not before…
Have a wonderful Easter break – pray for sunshine
