Years 5 & 6
I can hardly believe we are now in our final term of the school year. The sun is shining and we are looking forward to hopefully a near ‘normal’ end of the year.
We have been blessed this year by having a trainee teacher, Miss Walton, who was a pupil herself at Great Ponton. The children have greatly enjoyed her lessons and she has become very much a part of our school family. We wish her every success as in a few weeks she will be leaving us to take up her first teaching post in Nottingham.
We have also been very blessed this year to see the children grow and flourish. It has been a challenging year for them, dealing with remote learning and then re-integrating into the classroom again. They have shown great resilience throughout this year and returned to school with a greater understanding of how special our school is.
The attached topic map shows our main teaching areas this term, the main focus is History and Geography through our topic Ancient Greece. In addition to this we will also be working on our leaver’s play. This is an open air production of ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare. The production will take place on Thursday 15th July at 6pm. All pupils will be taking part in this production either as actors or stage hands.
Over the next few weeks we will be embracing the spirit of Euro 2020 (2021). We have had a sweepstake in class and each pupil has been assigned to be the captain of that country. We hope to hold our own Euro Final during our PE lesson. The winning team will win the biggest chocolate bar I can find!
At the end of term we will say our final goodbyes to our year 6 children; Archie, Ellie, Ryleigh, Jessica, Tana, Harry, Neriah and Marcus- you will all be greatly missed but you have very exciting times ahead. We will also be saying a sad goodbye to Kiean who is moving to his forever school, this young man has touched all our hearts and brings a smile to our faces every day.
There will be a final leaver’s assembly at 2:30 on Wednesday 21st July to say goodbye to these children.
So let’s treasure the last few weeks together and make lots memories.
With every blessing,
Mrs. Oliver, Miss Walton and Mrs Nichols
