Happy Friday everyone and what a week it has been!
The children have absolutely excelled themselves this week, with their maturity, compassion and resilience throughout a week of SATS.
They started off every morning with breakfast club in the school hall, where they enjoyed cereals, toast, pancakes, fruit juice and fruit before heading to the playground for some early morning exercise. I still believe this was the best part of the day for them all. Watching them eat together, talk, take turns and enjoy each others company brought a real lump to my throat as they have built such strong relationships despite being a small class.
After the indulgence of breakfast and some fresh air came a different test each day. SPaG on Monday, reading on Tuesday and maths on Wednesday and Thursday; where the children calmly and maturely approached each paper with an air of quiet confidence. Watching them made us all so proud of them.
During the afternoons they have undertaken a D.T project have created their own playgrounds. This involved designing and researching a playground, creating a footprint and then making it using a whole range of materials and apparatus such as saws, glue guns, bench hooks, doweling, and lolly sticks just to name a few. They all thoroughly enjoyed this and it was so nice to see the different skills the children have coming to light! Please see the gallery below for photos!
Friday saw us take a trip to the park and pump track with bikes and scooters...putting our bike ability skills to the test! Ice creams in the sunshine, climbing, hiding, catching, chasing, football, Secret seeker (a game they invented today), laughing and enjoying our time together after a week of hard work.
Year Six-you have made us very proud this week! Well done. Enjoy a wonderful weekend together and we will see you all on Monday morning!
