Term 6 Overview
We hope that you have had a great (and well deserved) half term following the SATS!
We would just like to say that the Year Six team were extremely pleased with the children’s attitude during SATS week; we were really proud with the way that the children applied themselves during the build-up towards the SATS as well as during the test week itself.
In this (very sadly final) term at Grovelands, there are several exciting things to look forward to: the trip to Blacklands (or an activities week in school for those who are staying), the Year Six show, the leavers’ disco, the leaving assembly and several transition activities in order to get ready for… secondary school!
Our residential trip at Blackland Farm is next week! The excitement is brewing- we’re sure that it’s going to be a great week! Please make sure that everything is packed that is needed from the kit list– only old clothes are necessary – ones that are allowed to get muddy or dirty! Please ensure that mobile phones, electronic games and sweets aren’t being taken on the trip. Don’t forget children are allowed to bring a maximum of £5 for the tuck shop- this however will need to be in a named wallet or purse and given in to a member of staff on the day of the trip.
Children who are staying in school have several fun activities to look forward to- with several art activities, outdoor activities and general fun being planned for the week.
We are currently preparing for the Year Six production of Mary Poppins- with lots of hard work coming from the children and staff towards making the show as special as it can be. Tickets will be released closer to the show date- the information on how to obtain tickets will come later in the term.
We really hope that the children’s final term at the school will be a happy and enjoyable one. They have been a credit to the school and will be missed. We wish them the best of luck at secondary school and beyond with their futures- and a big thank you to all of the parents for your support during your children’s time at Grovelands.
