We hope this weekly blog finds you all well! The sun is out and it looks like it's going to be a fantastic weekend for the Summer Fayre. Do please try to attend, even for half an hour, the draw prizes are incredible!
So this week in school we have celebrated our Festival of Hope. The focus on Monday was MFL (modern foreign languages), Tuesday Science, Wednesday Art, Thursday, P.E. and Friday Music. Each day we shared with the children, our hopes for them for the future with regards to that area of the curriculum and undertook collaborative activities around it.
On Monday Year 6 hosted a morning of French activities in the hall and in the classroom focusing on French games and a pet shop. On Tuesday (due to the power cut) our science activities were scuppered so we made the most of the morning preparing for the Summer fayre and music concert. On Wednesday we took part in a collaborative piece of art and each child designed a feather to be part of very special wings, each inscribed with a wish or saying about the significance of having hope. On Thursday we took part on our Sports Day and supported KS1 with theirs and finally on Friday we took part and performed in the whole school music concert.
I would like to congratulate all the year sixes on their fabulous sports day! They were positive, keen, resilient, cooperative and there were smiles all round. It was lovely to see them cheering each other on. During the afternoon, they supported Key Stage One with their sports day and it was commented on how polite they all were. I witnessed them awarding the youngest members of sports day with their stickers after every race and it was heart-warming. They were so kind, patient and encouraging. I was incredibly proud. Well done.
To end the week, we had our first music concert since the dreaded pandemic. It was so good to have parents in again and to be able to perform live. Our small class have been a bit shy about performing musically but they definitely pulled it out of the bag on Friday. Check out the performances on our Dojo page if you missed it!
As we come to the end of our school year with two weeks remaining the children still have lots to look forward to including a whole school forest day, end of year celebration and leavers assembly with awards. Please return your cream tea invites as soon a possible! Thank you.
Look forward to seeing you at the summer fair tomorrow.
Here are some photographs of our week together!
