Dear Parents and Friends
This week Birch Class led our Collective Worship and encouraged us all to think about Climate Change and the impact the we, as humans are having on our planet. The drama pieces that the pupils developed were really thought provoking and it was obvious from the content that the class had already begun to delve deep into the Climate Change agenda as part of their learning this term. As a school we agreed that we needed to support each other in reminding each other to turn off lights and computers before leaving the room and we discussed a few ideas which the children could try to implement at home. It was agreed that small changes by everyone can have a big impact on helping our planet. Thank you to Birch Class for raising this important subject and putting some powerful acting into their Collective Worship to support their message.
Year 6 SATs
Next week is the Year 6 SATs tests and we would like to wish all our pupils well. Remember that you are all amazing individuals and we know that you are well prepared and will perform to the best of your own abilities. The week is tricky at times with emotions running high however as a school will be supporting the Year 6 pupils in whatever way we can. As parents of these pupils, please endeavour over the weekend to get plenty of rest and relaxation and of course arriving on time at school all week will be essential to ensure that your child is calm and settled before the tests start. Thank you for your support.
