The staff in Otters class feel very proud and excited as we move into our final term; myself (Mr G), Mrs Stoker, Mrs Nadeau, Mrs Larcombe and Mrs Facey have all reflected on the successes and progress that has been made so far.
As we move into the summer term, the focus in Otters turns to Y6 SATs which begin on Monday 14th May 2018. We begin on Monday with SPaG, Tuesday sees us tackling the reading paper with Wednesday & Thursday focussing on the three maths papers. The summer term is certainly not all about SATs though, for Y6s it is the most exciting time of their school career; we begin focussing on their transition to secondary school with 2 full days planned in July at Holyrood. In June we look forward to our residential visit to Minehead for lots of fun and memories made by the sea. We also have Sports Day and other exciting activities planned.
As we move into our final half-term, our focus turns to our end of year performance – this year sees us presenting The Lion King. Singing has begun and children now know their parts. As our Y6s are moving on, our final efforts are turned to producing a memorable and enjoyable leavers’ assembly for families to enjoy – dates for all of the above mentioned will appear on our forth-coming newsletters.
As always in Otters, we always expect the highest of standards in behaviour, attitude, learning and homework. We aim to set the standards for all the other pupils in the school, being positive role models. We are lucky to have Miss Dalwood who teaches us drama, dance and music on a Wednesday and also Mr Jackson who teaches us PE on a Friday afternoon.
