We have been reading Rose Blanche and have written some fantastic descriptions! I was completely blown away – their use of high level vocabulary is fabulous. Well done 6P!
A letter should have recently come home with your child to inform you of the procedure for applying to secondary schools for September 2020.
The Telford & Wrekin online school portal is now live (Telford & Wrekin School Admisions) and the link is advised on the letter. It is vitally important that you apply online before the deadline of the 31st October 2019. Failure to do this will mean that your child’s application will NOT be looked at until early January 2020.
Having said that, please make sure that you check out the school your child wishes to attend by visiting them during their open evenings. Details for these can be found online by accessing the school admissions booklet 2020/2021 on the Telford & Wrekin Admissions site.
Deadline is the 31st October 2019.
Hopefully, all the Y6s are being nice and quiet at home after all their energetic dancing. It was a really great evening and the children were a pleasure to be around.
This evening wouldn’t have been possible without a number of people: firstly, the fantastic Mrs Perkins, who produces the invites, organises the DJ, the sweet bags and drinks and even finds time to bake a personalised cupcake for every child. Thanks Mrs Perkins. A big ‘thank you’ to Ms Childs, who gave up her own time and came back to school to cook the children a hot meal. Thanks to the Year 6 TAs, who also came back in their own time to help out. What an amazing team we have at WWJS!
Finally, a big thank you to the Year 6s. Your behaviour was superb, you cleaned up after yourselves and your smiles made the adults realise how lucky we are.
Here’s a list of events for the last week of Year 6:
Monday: Normal day
Tuesday: Leavers’ Disco 3:30 – 5:00pm. The children need to bring a change of clothes and they will get changed before the disco starts. A hot meal is provided – thanks to Ms Childs – and there will be sweets and drinks available to buy. Please collect them promptly at 5pm.
Wednesday: Treat Day! The children will need to wear comfortable clothing, suitable for trampolining. Unless a packed lunch has already been ordered from school, children will need to bring their own packed lunch and they can bring a small treat / snack and drink for the cinema.
Thursday: Leavers’ assembly. There will be two performances, which all children will be required to attend. Our afternoon performance will start at 1:45pm and our evening performance will be at 6pm. We request that no younger siblings come to the evening performance as it tends to be a late night and they are unable to sit quietly, which spoils the evening for the Year 6 children, who have worked very hard. For both performances, we ask that children are dressed in their own smart clothing (no sports clothing, no jeans).
Friday: Mufti-day in exchange for a food bank donation. Children might like to have their t-shirts signed, so please bear that in mind (feel free to bring in a spare t-shirt). Children are free to leave at 1:20pm if they have returned the consent form.
The Year 6 team would like to say a BIG thank you to all of you for all your support this year. We have loved teaching your fabulous children and will really miss them next year. Have a great Summer.
We have an increasing amount of pupils in Year 6 who are having a lunch when there are insufficient funds on their school lunch account. They are either forgetting to bring, or hand in their money.
In preparation for Secondary School where pupils cannot buy food without any credit, and to make the children more responsible for their own lunch which I’m sure you will agree, for the remainder of this term, Year 6 will not be allowed to go into debt on their accounts.
Please make sure that your child has enough credit to be able to have a lunch.
Instead of two individual fund-raisers, this year we have decided to organise an extravaganza and hold the Summer Fayre in conjunction with the Year 6 Enterprise Day.
This will be held on Friday 28th June in the afternoon.
More information will follow soon.
On Friday 14th June, we will be having a mufti day.
We are not asking for money; All we ask for in return is a bottle for the tombola for the Summer Fayre (more information on this coming soon). Please make sure that the bottles are unopened. Believe it or not, we have had half-empty bottles in the past! Bottles could include toiletries, wine, sauce, pop etc.
If your child does not want to participate, they are welcome to come in their normal school uniform.
Here is a reminder of the upcoming dates for Year 6 children:
Wolverhampton University Summer School at Walsall Campus – Tuesday 25th June, letter to follow
Transition Days at Secondary School (unless otherwise notified) – Monday 8th July and Tuesday 9th July.
Leavers’ Disco – Tuesday 16th July 3:30pm-5pm, letter to follow.
Leavers’ Assembly in the school hall – Thursday 18th July 6pm
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Just a message to let you know that for the next 4 weeks we will be setting the children a homework task which will involve some arithmetic and SPaG questions to answer. This will be set on a Wednesday and will need to be handed in on the following Monday when it will be marked. The children can still do corrections on the test papers they have carried out during the week if they wish, but this is optional.
Thank you so much for all of your support, it is greatly appreciated and if you have any problems, please let us know.
The Y6 Team.
