As your child enters their last half-term in primary education my aim is to make it as enjoyable for them as possible, but also to ensure they are ready to move on to "big" school at the end of it.
I'm hoping that the letter sent out before the holiday helps you to see how much is planned in for the last 7 and a bit weeks at St Michael's. If you aren't sure about any of it please ask! Please remember that your child will be visiting their secondary school on 4th and 5th July so they need to go there and not St Michael's on those two days (schools outside of Bracknell Forest may have different transition days so please check them).
The Beacon Centre trip is now also imminent. After much juggling and reassessing I think all the children are now in rooms that will work for them - to be honest I really don't want to have to change it again! If your child requires medication for that trip can you please ensure that you fill in the correct medication form for it and hand it to myself or Mrs Fenton on the morning of the trip so that we can ensure they get it. It may be better to give it to me the week before if you can to ensure no last minute panics. We have an INSET day on Friday 22nd June so any questions about this trip need to be asked before then.
The children will still need PE kit in school (black shorts and a white t-shirt for indoors with a plain dark tracksuit style clothing and sensible footwear for outdoor sessions) every FRIDAY please. EPC will be running both lessons and so it should be more structured and enjoyable for the children to have consistent coaching from one company.
Homework will continue come out every Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. I try not to set too much, but do expect the children to read and practice mental maths skills daily too if at all possible.
All other key dates will be posted on the weekly newsletter so please do look out for them.
Other than that we will set out on getting down to the hard work needed in Year 6. If you do need to speak to me please try to catch me before or after school in the playground or else pop in to the office to make an appointment if a little more time or privacy is needed.
