Year 6 Leavers

Leavers in the sun….

Today is the last day that we will have our lovely Year 6 children at school. We cannot believe that they are already heading off to secondary school.

We have just had a leavers’ assembly in the playground and the children were presented with their excellent leavers t-shirts, which the children themselves raised funds for.

They are now in the age old tradition of getting their t-shirts signed in the playground.

We would like to wish all of our Year 6s the very best for Y7 and beyond…

Motto Contender??

Be nice to everyone….

In Friday’s newsletter, Mr Absolom wrote about the work the school has been doing in reevaluating its values and identity. As part of this, we shared the gorgeous response from one of our younger learners, when asked waht we should try to be like when we are at school.

beNisto eVereoNe (sic) which is an admirable principle for these troubled times.

Thanks then to the parent who went one step further and translated this into Latin, suggesting that this might make a very good school motto:

bellum ut sit omnibus

Knowledge is Power!

Check out this amazing video made by a Year 5 child after they had seen the knowledge organiser for their current topic!

A really good example of how we hope the children across the school will use the information within the knowledge organisers to extend their topic learning.

Have a look at the Y5 Knowledge Organiser and then watch the amazing video to see how they are related.

Year 6 Opera Premiere

We are really pleased that it looks like the Year 6 Opera Premiere can go ahead as hoped on Tuesday 20th July @ 7pm

Mr Barrett and the Year 6 team are working extra hard to ensure that the children get their red carpet treatment.

The screening will take place at the marvelous Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel.

Dressin’ Up for the day

Today is a school wide dressing up day! The children have really gone for it and look fantastic. We are raising much needed cash for school funds – you can still make a donation online or to the collection buckets. There will be a collection on each gate this evening and more photos uploaded after school.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in getting the children ready for today.
