We will be continuing our successful holiday workshops for our new Y6 over the summer on the Tuesday and Thursday of the second and last week to give our children every chance to achieve the success they deserve in their SATS next year. All sessions are FREE and this includes upbeat teaching in key areas of English and mathematics in the morning followed by lunch and activities in the afternoon. Sessions start at 9.00 a.m. with access through the dining hall and finish at 3.00 p.m. but children can use the holiday club (8.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.), again for free, if attending the workshops. The atmosphere is relaxed with children wearing their own clothes. A number of different staff are involved in the workshops over the year; Miss Gouldsmith and Miss Turner will be teaching our last two summer sessions on 28th and 30th August with Mr Doye and Mr Hawkins leading the activities. We started these workshops after being disappointed with our results when the assessments changed in 2016 and; along with excellent teaching in class from our Y6 staff, they led to a very significant improvement. We recommend you take up this offer if you can and we know your children will not only benefit academically but enjoy them.
Well done to Y6 children who attended the 2017-18 workshops and to the staff who made these possible. We saw the difference it made with regular attenders getting 94% Reading, 94% Mathematics and 92% Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.
