Year 6 has begun in earnest. We now have the Year 6 monitors appointed. After filling in their job applications last July, Mrs Prince had the difficult job of appointing children to the range of duties that the Year 6 children help with.
The monitor jobs vary from supporting our Year R pupils that have just started at Cedar Park, to organising our assemblies and delivering and collecting registers. Every Year 6 pupil has a job and their badges will be worn with pride!
We are looking forward to our Victorian Day later in this term. This is our chance to experience life as a Victorian child. Dressed in our mop caps, shawls and waistcoats we spend the day at Reading Museum learning how daily chores were managed. Then we spend the afternoon in a Victorian classroom. It’s always the case that somebody blots their copy book and has to be given the cane or they have to wear the dunces hat. Mrs Prince will ensure there is photographic evidence to share with Year 6 parents!
In November, Roger Sell from CRS Adventures will be visiting Year 6 to talk about the exciting River Dart residential visit planned for the last week of June 2011. It will be an opportunity for parents and pupils to ask any questions they may have. We are hoping that all of Year 6 will be able to attend this amazing trip.
Year 6 is an action-packed year and so Mrs Prince is very happy to meet with parents whenever there are questions that need answering. Please make an appointment via the school office or communicate through your child’s homework book.
