Class 6 Relax with X-HAIL

The children in Class 6 were extremely lucky to have Clare, an X-HAIL Meditation Instructor, deliver an X-HAIL SATS session.  The aim of the session was to share with the children some techniques that they can use, not only in the lead up to and during their SATS, but also in their every days lives. They very much enjoyed the session and came out of it feeling relaxed and ready to tackle the weeks ahead. They also made wonderful meditation bracelets and posters to remind them of the skills learned. A huge thank you to Clare for giving up her time and treating our children to such a fantastic afternoon. It was a pleasure to have you in school!

Class 6 Enjoy Breakfast Club

Many of the children in Class 6 have attended Breakfast Club throughout SATs week. It is a nice opportunity for the children to get together and have some time with their friends and the adults within school before the start of the tests. Lots of children have asked “Can we have this next week too?” so we know it proves to be a popular event!

You will be wonderful so do not worry. We know you will try your best and  get the excellent results you deserve.

Make sure you get lots of sleep this weekend so you wake up refreshed and ‘ready for action’ on Monday morning.

Artwork in Class 1

This week Class 1 have been looking at the artist Giuseppe Arcinboldo with Miss Rooney. They have created a collaborative piece of artwork using fruit and vegetables to design something of their choice. We have seen some fantastic designs including a unicorn, a face, a dog and a zip wire.

The children had a fantastic time looking at a different ways to make art fun.
