What a fabulous afternoon ‘Speed-Sainting’!
Thank you to each and every person who came to support Year 6 in their prepararation for receving the Sacrament of Confirmation this weekend. It was fantastic to listen to the children talk so confidently about their chosen saint and really was such a valuable experience for them all.
To end our revision sessions in preparation for SATs next week, Year 6 took part in a pub-style quiz to test their maths, reading and SPaG knowledge. Each round focused on a different aspect, ending with some trickier questions in their bonus round on ‘Staff Knowledge’.
The children tucked into some crisps and popcorn whilst sipping their drinks and battling it out to win a prize.
They put their heads together to try and win each round.
It was close but the winners were…
Good luck for next week Year 6 – get ready to show off everything you’ve learnt! 🙂
Letters are being sent home today outlining the Sex and Relationships Education programme which will be being delivered to Y6 children during the week commencing Monday 20th May. To date, the children have explored respect of self and of others and friendships through our R-time programme. This section deals with other areas such as anatomy, personal hygiene and ‘how a baby is made’.
Parents will have the opportunity to view clips from the DVD used with the children 3.30 – 4.30pm Monday 20th May and also gain an understanding of the topics covered.
Throughout the week, the boys and girls will watch the video together and complete some follow up work. On Friday 24th May at 2pm, the boys and girls will work separately. Boys will work with Mr Cooke to gain a better understanding of menstruation and have the opportunity to ask some questions. Girls will take a closer look at menstruation, products available, how they work, hygiene etc. A female relative of the girls is invited to join this session. Please do not worry if you cannot join the girls as usually enough adults are able to attend the session and we split the girls up into small groups.
Please complete the reply slip attached to the letter indicating if you are able to attend the meeting or (for girls) the workshop session.
We will be holding our annual ‘Speed Sainting’ event on Tuesday 21st May from 3.30pm-4.30pm.
Year 6 invite their parents, grandparents and/or sponsors to come along and take part! This is a great opportunity for the children to speak to a number of different adults about their choice of Saint in preparation for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.
As always, we appreciate your support in helping make these events worthwhile.

Year 6 have been reading lots of different news stories to help them get into the shoes of a journalist, ready to write their own article next week!
Year 6 spent the morning grafittying our tables with the measurements of angles to practise their protractor skills!
