Year 6 – working together as a team!

This week we put up the stage and started the rehearsals for our summer production of ‘Wind in the Willows’. The children have also started designing the set and creating props and backdrops – they are determined to put on a great show for you all! We have also been writing our crime fiction stories, continuing out topic work and creating flat breads on the open fire! On Wednesday we were visited by the fire service. It was great to be reminded how to keep safe both in the home and on the roads – thank you.

Congratulations should also go to our sports teams this week. I received nothing but praise about how you all conducted yourselves on Tuesday. A big well done to the cricket team who were won the whole tournament!

As we venture into the last few weeks, there will be lots of opportunities for the children to reflect on their time here but also to look forward to their new high school.

Please keep in touch with me if there is anything you need to discuss or need support with.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mr Parkinson

Summer Production ‘Wind in the Willows– Wednesday 5th July

We would love to invite you to our Summer Production in school this year. Performances will start at 2pm and 6pm. Four tickets, for each performance have been sent home this evening. We will also endeavour to film the performance so the children have a copy to look back on in years to come!

Year 6 Mass and Assembly – Wednesday 12th July – 1:30pm

Mass and Assembly will both be held in the Church on the 12th July. This will be a special time for Year 6 and their families to reflect on their time at Saint Clare’s.

Year 6 Leavers Meal – Thursday 13th July

The children are very much looking forward to heading to Marino’s for their leavers’ meal. Our time slot is between 4:15pm and 5:30pm, so that it is just our class in the restaurant. Children will have an early lunch on this day and can be picked up at school from 2:00pm, to enable them to get ready and then meet us at Marino’s ready for tea. We ask that you drop the children off at 4:15pm and then pick up again at 5:30pm.

Final Day – Friday 14th July

On the last day of term Year 6 will finish early at 1pm so that they can have a guard of honour on the playground and leave to the traditional ‘Reach for the stars’. You are welcome to join us outside for this at about 12:55pm. If you would like to take younger siblings then you may do so, as the rest of the school will finish at 1:30pm.
