Not sure if anyone will see this post but I'd just like to say again how proud I've been of you all over this year and that I think you've all done so well. We had a great year and I will miss you all. The leaver's assembly was hilarious and a bit sad too but finally finished our year albeit about 5 minutes overtime. I'm back in the workshop now about to catch up on all the jobs I've been saving up: like fixing this old phone a bit more. It's polished up quite well but I want it to work too. I'm looking forward to a bit more mountain climbing, Parkruns, boot sales, swimming and getting up late on weekdays too. I hope you all have a chance to relax and do some interesting things as well.
Some of you did leave a few things behind that I think you will be wanting me not to throw away so I will hang on to them for you.
Thanks for all the presents and kind words - Good luck. Please visit next year!
Well done everybody for your fantastic performances of "Pride Rock". Everyone worked so hard, performers and backstage crews, parents too, and I couldn't have been more proud of you all. And thanks for the flowers and card. I hope you're looking forward to your disco on Monday and don't forget - we've another performance to work on now - the leaver's assembly. So we're going to be busy right up to the last day!
What a busy week! Northgate induction, ofsted, rehearsals - We really needed the weekend.
I hope you are going to be bringing back any Pride Rock tickets you don't need so that we can redistribute them. We really need costumes to be in school this coming week so that we can check them out and make any necessary tweaks. I've got a lot to do to make the stage look better too.
I've added a couple more ideas for costumes that I've Googled - Is that their own hair that looks like ears? Hmmm.
See you tomorrow!
We've all been working really hard to make sure this year's Y6 production is a success. I'm currently making a full-size elephant skull (what a way to spend a weekend!) between writing end of year reports. I hope all of the children with lines are now "off-script". I've had a few queries about costumes so I've been searching the internet for pictures of other performances that create the image Miss Steward and I envisaged when we sent out the letter regarding costumes. The overall idea was to have costumes that are more human than animal to make it easier to sort out costumes - and use facepaints to make the characters' identities clearer.
These must be hyenas.
Lionesses - but I don't like the headresses.
Hope this gives you a clearer idea. Please come to talk to us if you have any ideas or need help with costumes.
This week in year six we have had a hard week of SATs. On Monday we had a reading test, on Tuesday we had SPaG and spelling, Wednesday we had maths arithmetic and then maths reasoning one. Finally, on Thursday we had our last test, which was 'reasoning two'. After a long week of work, we are all looking forward to the end of year production and going to Belchamps.

P.S. I'm so proud of you all! Everyone was so calm and worked hard without any fuss. :) Mr Rix
On Thursday, the class split up into groups of about seven and did drama on a chapter in the book - Refugee boy. Each person had a different role: Alem, Alem's father, the Adjudicator, the Barrister for the State, Mrs Fitzgerald and Nicholas Morgan (Alem's Barrister). We did it so we could understand the story and then write an assessed piece of writing. We acted out the part when Alem was in court for the second time followed by his father who was going to have his first time in court. This was the part in the story where they were told they couldn't stay in England and had to go back to Ethiopia where there was war and they would be in danger (especially Alem as he was Ethiopian and Eritrean.)
