Where has this year gone! I just cannot believe we have 4 more days to go. Last week had still as much learning in and of course some super performances from The Mystery at Magpie Manor. Looking at all the fab pictures in the photo gallery just reminds me how much fun and learning comes from a production. The many cross curricular subjects involved and not forgetting the fun of learning.
Class 6 were also very mature whilst covering the information involved in our sex education and relationships programme.
We also had time to visit the field on a few occasions for our PE lessons to polish up on our rounders skills, ready for Monday.
We had time to also fit in some maths lessons which was good. It did seem very strange however on Thursday when no one was around at the gate , with the usual 'Morning Mrs Stewart'. It was lovely to hear about their day on Friday and I'm sure they will all have made a super first impression at their new schools.
Friday was however a little emotional. Each year we ask the children to walk a labyrinth and reflect on their time at St Ippolyts. The children each then gather pebbles as the think back and place memories into a small trinket. I stand watching each of them, with so many memories of my own. Mrs Jones also joined us. You will have the opportunity to see and hear some of these thoughts at our Leavers Service on Wednesday.
Let us look to next week then and a few reminders.
A very exciting day after school tomorrow for our Staff v Year 6 leavers match. I hope you can join us. Year 6 please try to remember your PE kit please and trainers.
Please can the children, if they have not already completed, hand in their Leavers page. I have read so many lovely pages but do need them in by Monday.
Also I have been discussing and starting to work with the children on their leavers boards. For those children newer to Year 6 we ask you to gather a range of items that show your journey of primary school years. These items are then displayed. You of course will be able to take these home on Thursday with you.
Tuesday is our Leavers BBQ for Year 6 and hope that the beautiful weather stays. Leavers service on Wednesday pm.
Last but not least, it may be an idea to bring some plastic bags in as we will be distributing things. Please can you also have a good look at home and return any library books or badges that you may still have.
Remember to try and keep learning your songs and words for the service.
See you all tomorrow!
