The Final Countdown!
It's hard to believe that it is now the final term at primary school for Violet Class - the year so far has flown by and I suspect that the final term will too, with lots to squeeze in.
We start with a four day week which has a science focus. As part of the week, the children in year 6 are going to demonstrate a range of scientific activities which they have researched and written instructions for. They will also explain the science behind what they are demonstrating. We start on Tuesday with Red and Orange classes then will 'perform' again for the other classes on Thursday, ending the day with a demonstration to parents - a letter has been sent home about this so hopefully we will see some of you then.
On Tuesday afternoon there is a PGL briefing for parents - starting at 2.30 in the classroom. We will give you an idea of what the children will be doing while we are away and will hand out information packs which include a code of conduct and medical form that need to be completed and returned. The meeting provides an opportunity for parents to ask questions and there will be a chance to provide relevant information about the children, in confidence, at the end of the session. Packs will be sent home for those unable to attend.
On Wednesday morning we are having a visit from a local magistrate (and possibly a PCSO) to tell us about the judicial system. Mike Barrow has been visiting us for several years now and the children always find the session interesting - especially as there is a bit of role play involved!
Matilda is looming ever closer so rehearsals will be stepped up, both within school hours and after school. Mrs Julier will advise of any after school sessions.
