Happy Easter everyone,
So here we are at the end of the Spring term! The next time I write a blog it will officially be the summer term and the Year 6's last term at Primary School. Next term sees lots of exciting things planned for them (details will follow in due course) as well as lots of important things too. We hope the weather begins to improve so we can truly make the most of our time together.
This week has been as busy as ever. We have used our time to finish our biographies, write our Geography essays based on 'Population', finish our D.T projects, undertake a short unit on converting units (measures) in maths, learn about April Fools Day in French, practise for our sharing assembly and conclude our swimming lessons.
There have been two highlights for me this week and both of them are about celebrating the children's achievements and their resilience.
The first is the improvement in swimming and water confidence for EVERY single member of our class. I absolutely loved watching the children swimming this week as they undertook their assessments to see how far they could swim. The encouragement they gave each other, the determination, the courage and the smiles on their faces and the pure pride they had in themselves. Whether it be 10 m or 100 m, positivity and effort is what counts. I was a very proud teacher today, and the staff at the swimming pool were full of admiration for the progress they have all made.
The second highlight was the children completing their D.T. sewing projects. They have all worked very hard, in a relatively short space of time, to complete a stuffed felt fish from design to toy. All the children worked independently, with little support from me and showed huge pride in their efforts as they were desperate to take them home! There were moments of joy, concentration, relief and support as they all participated with determination to complete it in time for Easter.
I wish you a very Happy Easter; Mrs Ware and myself will be in touch with news about the Summer term, what to expect, timetables, events, trips, activities and much more. We will do our very best to support your child in fulfilling their potential and having the most memorable time in their final few months at primary school.
Thank you and take care.
Mrs Ware and Miss Ruby
