On Monday evening , our Choir performed at the Bridgewater Hall! This was a fantastic evening and they sang beautifully! All staff came to show their support and were amazed at how brilliant they were!
Well done to all of the choir and thank you to parents who came to support this wonderful evening.
Next week in our new Year 6 Transition class we will be starting our new R.E Topic – Hinduism !
What do you know about this religion already? What would you like to find out?
This half term has been fantastic so far and we have had lots of support from our parents, friends and family of children within Year 5.
So far, we have had a ‘Reading morning’ where our parents were invited to attend a Reading session to help their children and find out tips and strategies they could use to help support them at home 🙂 This was a great success!!
On Monday 24th June, we will have our WRL Summer Fair. Parents across the school are invited to come to our stalls and purchase items their children have made 🙂 There will also be lots of food and drink to choose from with some exciting games being lead by our staff 🙂 In Year 5, we will be selling Jewellery and can not wait to show them off to our parents !
Finally, this half term we have booked a lot of competitions and our parents have been invited to attend 🙂 Its great to see familiar faces at our games and to see them cheering us on! Hopefully the sun will come out next week, so our next competitions that are booked, can go ahead:)
Thank you to all parents for their support so far!
Miss Stockton and Year 5 🙂

This week the fantastic year 6s are having their end of year SATs. The school timetable has been scheduled differently this week. The year 6s are having a really hard time but this will show what they have learnt over the years. Also the amazing year 2s are having their SATs but the year 6s SATs are more important because this score will be taken to secondry school.
