Welcome back to a new term, we hope you have had a lovely Easter! We have a busy term ahead of us so we hope that the children are well rested and ready for their final term at Goldthorn Park! The first 2 weeks back will be continuing our preparations for SATs tests, this will include teaching test skills and using past test questions to develop children’s confidence in order to achieve their very best. We will also continue to focus on developing our writing skills across a range of texts including short stories, persuasive texts and letters.
SATs will take place the week beginning 13th May 2019 – it is vital that children attend school this week. We will be running a breakfast club for all Year 6 children during this week where bagels and juice will be provided. We find this helps children to relax and prepare for the day. Breakfast club will run from 8:10 every morning.
Below, we have listed the days that the children will undertake the tests:
Thank you to parents/carers who attended our Year 6 SAT's meeting.

After SATs, we will continue with our writing but also have some fun activities and projects planned.
During the week beginning the 10th July, some of our children will be heading off to Laches Wood on our residential trip. Please could we request that all monies be paid as soon as possible. If you are not sure how much you owe, please get in touch and we will let you know.

The Challenge is on!
Through orienteering, Year 6 have solved mathematical problems, riddles and a series of brain tasking challenges. They worked effectively in teams to complete the tasks set and gain points for their team. Well done to Group 4 - the winners!
Today Year 6 have been learning about a very important topic which could save a life! They have put their friends into the recovery position, bandaged an arm, treated bleeding and shock and familiarised themselves with DR ABC - wow they are so talented!
