Year 6 make us proud during SATS week!

Well Done Year 6! Last week was SATs week in school. We are all very proud of the whole class and the work ethic and positive attitude that they have demonstrated towards their assessments. Everyone has worked extremely hard!

As a reward for their hard work, the children were able to relax on Friday afternoon with their favourite games from home. Many children brought in cakes and snacks which went down a treat at the ‘After SATs Party’.

Thank-you to everyone for their wonderful baking and generous party food donations!

SATS Breakfast Club

The children were invited to the SATs Breakfast Club last week, which was well attended every morning. The daily menu consisted of cereal, toast and juice. As a special treat, bacon sandwiches were also available on Friday and enjoyed by many.

Thank-you, to all the members of staff who served breakfast to the children each morning.

Year 5 and the TDY

Our art competition winners inspired the design for our land art. Well done to Class 5 for making the design come alive with an exciting creation, which was later shown on the TdY coverage. Many thanks to Mr and Mrs Fordham and Mr Want and Mrs Want for downloading the footage for us to watch. The TdY was a brilliant event, allowing the children to see some of the world’s greatest athletes compete on our doorstep.

Many thanks to Miss Felton and Miss Arnold who helped to create the artwork.

Good Luck Class 6!

Good Luck Class 6 for this week as you take your SATS tests.

You will be wonderful and will show how hard you have worked all year and understood all your fantastic learning.

Don’t forget to bring your lucky mascot to school with you on Monday so that it can sit on your desk and support you. Get a good nights sleep on Sunday night too!

Land Art

These photos have been taken from the videos. Not only do they show Classes 5 and 6 watching the race from their vantage point up near Hoylandswaine, but they also give a fantastic aerial view of the land art on the school field as filmed from the Channel 4 helicopter.
Well done to Mr Simon who designed and created the image with help from Miss Felton, Miss Arnold and the children in Class 5.
You will agree it is a very effective image when viewed from above.
