Safer Relationships, safer internet
This week has been a significant week in the year 6 calendar with our children sitting English and Maths SATs. Year 6 have approached SATs with a mature and positive attitude and we are very proud of how they tackled each of the tests, truly putting into practice their BLP skills of resilience! We also value the expertise in our year 6 teaching team, who were able to fully prepare our children for the new grammar, punctuation and spellings test and also for the increasing number of children being entered for the maths and reading level 6 tests. The test results will be published in July. The next challenge year 6 will take on is Red Ridge a residential that has become firmly established as part of the Sharmans’ experience and well loved trip that many of our past pupils love to reminisce over.
Year 4 have also had an exciting week - As part of their topic work on World War II the children and staff were evacuated to Bell Heath where they experienced what life would have been like for evacuees. Everyone dressed up in role and took a steam train to begin their evacuation experience, a new adventure for many of our children.
‘I loved the activities because we got to dig for victory and fish for victory. My favourite activity was roasting marshmallows.’
‘When we got to Bell Heath we unpacked and made our beds. Our first activity was orienteering and code cracking together. The code was ‘evacuation’. It was really fun but challenging at the same time.’
‘I loved everything and I was on the ball.’

We look forward to welcoming the rest of Year 4 back around 5pm today.
On a final note, next week is Enterprise Week; we are looking forward to seeing many parents in school joining in on the exciting planned activities.
Have a good weekend.
