Important swimming information
When we return after Easter some children have been selected to take part in school swimming lessons. We have used past records to select children who have previously struggled with their swimming ability. You should have received a text if your child was selected. IF YOUR CHILD IS UNABLE TO SWIM 25 METERS AND YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED A TEXT PLEASE EMAIL ME AT YOUR EARLIEST CONVENIENCE. Due to COVID restriction we are only able to take 16 children. If you would like any more information regarding swimming, please see the swimming letter attached at the end of the blog.
For those children selected, the first swimming lesson is on Monday 12th April - the first day back after the Easter holidays. They must bring their swimming kit to school.
What a week!
We have had a brilliant week in year 6.
We started the week by making Easter bonnets for the children in the Ark Nursery. The year 6 children realised this was a BIG responsibility and therefore completed the bonnets to the best of their ability. The children only had card, felt tips and their imagination and they all created something wonderful. The children in nursery were all thrilled with what the ‘big children’ had made them and wore their bonnets with pride. The nursery children voted for their favourite bonnet and the winner was … Grace. Well done Grace, enjoy your Easter egg!
Since the children returned we have been learning about the circulatory system in Science. Today we completed a heart and lung dissection. On the whole, the children were fascinated by the organs and thoroughly enjoyed the learning involved. Well done to those children who overcame their initial fears and persevered. It was great the see the children demonstrating all that they had learnt!
Today we desperately tried to finish our book – Malamander. We were so close. We have just one final chapter left to read. I will put a recording of the final chapter on Google Classroom for the children to listen to over the Easter break.
Speaking of books – we have been spoilt! Each class were kindly given some pennies by Mr Young to spend on some new books. We have been able to buy 26 new books for our class library. The vast majority of them have arrived and they are beautiful! We have brought a selection of fiction and non-fiction books. Some children have taken one of the new books home to read over the break, it’d be lovely if they could share it with you.
Today the coveted Headteacher Award was awarded to a child in each class. The recipient in year 6 was Spencer – well done Spence, it was thoroughly deserved.
A big well down to Eloise, who was this week’s Golden Award winner and to Aydon, who won the Respect award
