Thursday 11th May… the Year Six students have finished their assessments for the school year! On a positive spin, SATs… a fabulous experience for the children to feel the pressure and nerves and to show off all of the hard work that they have put in across their years at their schools. And, I am sure from speaking to your children, they will say A) they are glad they are over; B) they weren’t as bad as they feared; and, C) they tried their absolute best throughout them!
Today we had a mini Year Six bake-off where, in the style of Masterchef, Mandela and Churchill had a taste test from a Mr Prosser rocky road. Following this, students chose their own ingredients and created their own versions how they wanted. Across the road, with the cooking expertise of Mrs de Board, lemon drizzles and the like were created for the year group to taste. Students got to eat all of their creations – we didn’t crown a ‘winner’!
After a fun afternoon on the field, and a long game of football (90 minutes?!), Mandela and Churchill drew 15-15… albeit with some controversies along the way.
Friday 12th May
We cross our fingers that tomorrow will be sunny and this will allow us to visit the local park where Andy Goldsworthy style art will be created – check back tomorrow at the same time to see the artwork. The children have worked very hard studying his style of art so it will be great to put the art into practice. Should your child want to wear an old pair of trainers for this, please feel free to send them in in a plastic bag or such.
We are incredibly proud of each and every student who tried their hardest this week – a big well done from the Year Six Team!
