Year 6 Fun Farm Friday

May 18, 2018 all-day

Dear Year 6 Parents,

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 14th May – Thursday 17th May) we will be offering a breakfast club for Year 6s.  Please feed your child breakfast as normal, however children are invited into Soberton 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 day’ for Year 6. They will be collected from Droxford village square at 9.30am, for a tractor/ trailer ride and taken to Corhampton Farm private woods.  During the day, 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 before the end of the school day. 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 or their home-made dens, 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.  Wellies or walking boots would be ideal footwear.  A completed permission slip should be returned to the school by Friday 11th May. If your child is entitled to free school meals and they require a school lunch please annotate below.

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,


Mrs Smith, Mrs Vardy and Mr Todd
