Welcome back

We look forward to welcoming you back as the new year sixes on Monday morning.

We have a very exciting and busy day prepared for you so please don’t forget to bring in your wellies, gardening gloves, raincoat (if it looks like rain!) and trowels/spades so that we can really get ‘stuck in’ to creating our victory gardens.

It might be a good idea to wear an older polo shirt or bring a top to change into so that you don’t get a lovely new uniform covered in dirt on your first day.

If you don’t have this all of this equipment please do not worry as we are sure that your classmates will be happy to share with you- the teachers will also be bringing in some equipment too.

See you all on Monday morning.

Last day of term

The arrangements for the last day of term are as follows:
Please send your child in their usual uniform.
They may bring in a spare polo top/t-shirt to have signed by their classmates. Please also send a pen for your child to use.

Children may bring a non-electronic game to play in classrooms.

Our leavers assembly will be first thing- parents are welcome to stay for this.

The children may be collected from school early at 2.30pm. If you would like your child to walk home alone, please send them with a letter to give permission- otherwise, children will remain in school until 3.20pm.

Thank-you

Writers workshop

Today, 6 of our most talented writers attended a professional workshop with pupils from four different schools across Lincoln. It was led by a qualified and experienced script-writer, William Gallagher. Whilst with him, all of the students completed tasks such as story-writing, creating an unusual character and writing a news article.
We really enjoyed today as we had a lot of fun.

Auditions

The auditions are underway for this year’s show. I am so incredibly proud of everybody who has auditioned so far and I am excited to see the rest of you try out tomorrow.

The confidence you have all shown in your performances is incredible- Mrs Niven and I have had lots of goosebumps (especially Mrs N!) from your singing and so many of you have really beautiful voices. Year 6 is just full of talented actors.

We will cast the roles as soon as everybody has auditioned and then we will be able to start our rehearsals.

With all of you involved, it’s going to be a fantastic show!

Homeward bound

Year 6 are now on their way back to school after a very successful trip- they are all very keen to share their adventures with you.

We are likely to arrive back at school at 3.30pm. Please wait for your child at the front of the school.

We undertand that you will be keen to see your child again and hear all about their trip, but please speak to their group leader before you leave incase there are any messages that need to be passed on to you.

Thank you all for your support.

Team building

what a day! Children completed the ‘high ropes’ activities alongside some team building and they were incredible. Many of the children faced fears of heights but with encouragement from their friends, they conquered them to go further than they had imagined that they could.

During the team building games, children listened carefully and supported each other to complete a variety of intense challenges such as keeping a rope tight in order to guide their team mates across a muddy pond! If this went wrong, they could have ended up soaked and muddy! We are pleased to report that all children managed to stay out of the water!

They also took part in weasling and bouldering which involved wriggling themselves through some small spaces and, again, for some children this meant facing a fear. The support and encouragement between each other was incredible and the children managed to achieve so much and left feeling incredibly proud of themselves!
