Year 6 Fun Farm Friday

Year 6 end of SATs Fun Farm Friday

Year 6 SATs and Fun Farm Friday information

We are writing to thank you for all your time and support with recent homework. We are very proud of the Year 6 approach to their individual learning needs.  The effort they have been putting in to go the extra mile and ‘plug those gaps’ has had an effective impact!

During SAT week (Monday 8th May – Thursday 11th May) we will be offering a breakfast club for Year 6s.

Please feed your child breakfast as normal, however children are invited into Newtown Base from 8.15am, where toast and bananas will be available to feed the brain! It is a great way to build a positive and fun atmosphere, which previous cohorts have found very beneficial.

On the Friday of SAT week, we are pleased to offer a ‘fun morning’ for Year 6. They will be collected from the village square at 9.30am, for a tractor/ trailer ride and taken to Corhampton Farm private woods.  During the morning, we will organise a variety of tasks and activities in the outdoors in the safe location, including den building and wide games.  The trailer will then return the children to the square during lunchtime. Children must wear long trousers and have a long sleeve top/jacket as there are nettles in the woods.

They will also need a picnic lunch, which we can hopefully eat in the woods, if the weather is kind! In addition, it would be helpful if the children brought a plastic bag to sit on for eating their lunch and can then be used to take their own rubbish home.  We will try our hardest to get them dirty, so please can they come to school in their outdoor clothes, but bring their uniform to change into for afternoon lessons. Wellies or walking boots would be ideal footwear.  A completed permission slip should be returned to the school by Friday 5th May. Please advise on the slip below if you require a school lunch to be prepared.

On a final note, please ensure the weekend before SAT week, that your child gets plenty of rest and relaxation. There will be no homework set, as fresh air and sleep will be the best preparation they can have.

Thank you again for your commitment and support,

The Year 5 & 6 Team
