The End of the Year!
Here we are at the end of another school year that has seen so many memories, lots of learning and endless fun and laughter. It has been a pleasure to share in your children’s learning journey this year. There are always ups and downs but also some incredible moments along the way!
It is with a tear in our eyes that we say good-bye to our wonderful Year 6 children as they move on to comprehensive school in September. We wish them every success in the next part of their journey. We ask one thing of you Year 6 children…remember all we have ever said about Golden Rules and life skills and most of all remember the ‘world Is yours’ and you can be who you want to be!
We would like to say an enormous well done to the cast and choir who joined together to make such a memorable performance of High School Musical. Under the skilful guidance of Miss Heap, the children performed their hearts out. It was a real team effort from the actors and the back stage team. Some of our children definitely need to make sure they join a drama group when they get to secondary school. It is so rewarding watching the children perform and we are all very proud of them. A big thank you to all the staff who played a part in making the performance possible, to Hillsborough College for hosting us and to all the families who came along to watch.
Parents Evening & WCM University Files
Thank you to all the families that came along to parents’ evening yesterday, it was lovely seeing you sharing the learning your child has completed over the last year. This year, a lot of time and effort has gone into putting together the end of year report that we hope will be more meaningful than the reports we have previously sent out. We have called these reports our WCM University Folders. Most of you will have seen them in development at previous parents’ evenings. We are already thinking of how we can make the WCM University Folders even better for next year but we would value your feedback and thoughts on what you like about them and any suggestions for improvements next year. The feedback slip went out with the reports yesterday.
We hope that the folder is something that you will want to keep and look back on in future years and we look forward to receiving your feedback.
After School Activities
We are just in the process of compiling the list of After School Activities for September. We will be offering the usual options of Computers, Cross Country, Little Cooks and SWFC but would like to add more variety to the list. Have you got any ideas of what we could do? Do you know anyone who could deliver different activities to the children? If you do please call in and let us know.
Does your child show a particular flair for acting? If they are aged between 9 and 12 they can come along to the Crucible Theatre and learn new theatre skills, gain confidence and make new friends, whilst discovering more about theatre. Children will get a chance to have a go at a range of exciting skills including movement singing and clowning. You need to commit to the whole week and it will be free if you are in receipt of benefits or DLA. If you want more information call in to school and see Gillie Lane.
We hope you all had a lovely holiday with your families, it is a shame the sun didn’t shine a bit more! Well here we are again in the last half term of the year! We can’t believe that we are nearly at the end of our tenth year at WCM. Time passes so quickly! As usual, we have plenty happening over the next 7 weeks, which we will keep you informed of in our weekly edition of the Green ‘Un. You will received a letter before the holidays about class organisation for next year. We have deliberately let you know earlier this year to enable your children to get to know their new teacher before they move in September. Please take time to say hello to your child’s new teacher. If you have any questions about next year, please call and see us.
There are quite a few letters going out in the next few weeks about events that are happening in and around school. If you think you have missed anything please ask your child’s class teacher who will let you know what is happening. Tomorrow we will be sending home a letter with information about class arrangements for September. We will also use the Green ‘Un to keep you up to date.
Y6 SATS Week
Next week is a very important week for our Y6 children. They have their compulsory SATs tests, which they have been working towards all year. We wish our children lots of luck and know that they will do their very best to show themselves, us and their families what they are capable of. If your child is in Y6 please help them to feel as ready as possible by having plenty of rest and a nice relaxing weekend.
Thank you for your continued support with your children and their learning. They have done fantastically well this year and we really want them to enjoy showing what they can do!
