Year 6 – 12/05/17 SATs week

I would like to begin by expressing my pride at how maturely Y6 approached their SATs this week. They all put in their best efforts and kept up the focus through all 6 tests. A huge well done to each of you.

After the SATS morning, the children spent Thursday afternoon making group graffiti pieces. They have brightened up our classroom no end!

On Thursday evening, I got a fright when I opened a box of potatoes that I’d had for a few months, to find that they were practically climbing out the box with the massive tentacle-like limbs that had sprouted from them, desperate to find light. Thus, we had a combined art and science lesson on Friday morning, observing the potatoes through still-life drawings, and discussing what had happened to them. We will plant them next week and see if they will still grow.

Well done to Amelia B and Daniel for leading the school in the beautiful May Procession.

      For Fiddlesticks, please can you practise the rat chase towards the bottom of p.25 (underneath where it says Rat Music #3)? Also, for people auditioning for a rat part, that will be the same scene. Hope that’s clear!

    The Graffiti art looks great – I shall look forward to seeing these.

    The potato ‘tentacles’ are HUGE! like some form of alien life!

    The May Procession was particularly beautiful this year. Well done to Year 6 for leading it so respectfully.
