A Year 6 ‘chillout breakfast’ will take place in the school hall at 8:30am from Monday-Thursday next week. Please have breakfast before you come, as this is just a relaxed treat before the SATs start! The playground will also be open to Year 6s from 8am, for those wishing to come earlier.

UPCOMING TRIP: CRUCIAL CREW

This is an amazing opportunity for our Year 6 children to learn some valuable life skills. Crucial Crew is facilitated by the emergency services and is a series of role-play workshops. At these workshops the children are presented with various dangerous or challenging situations – such as a road accident or a gas leak – and they engage in role play exercises in how to deal with these situations. Crucial Crew is above all designed to be a fun way for children to learn life-saving safety messages. The course includes subjects such as health, police, public emergency, electricity, fire, seaside and bus travel safety.
