YEAR 6

Mr Otterson and Mr Telford
YEAR 6

We hope everyone had a nice Easter holidays and enjoyed the good weather.  The pupils have been practising hard and are now ready for the challenge of SATs this term (May 13-17th).  They are really important, so please ensure that your child has had a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast before each day of the tests.  If your child is poorly they can still do the test and then return home if necessary (one child had chicken pox last year), or if they are too ill to come to school, they will simply do it the day after instead.

It is a great final term packed full of fantastic opportunities.  We will begin practising for our end of year school performance very soon and of course there are special days and events like the Talent show, the Fashion show, leavers’ disco, sports assembly and leavers’ assembly in July. 

There will be time for your child to visit their secondary school this term too.  This is usually the last week of June for Joseph swan, Lord Lawson and Heworth Grange children – Cardinal Hume tend to have individual days spread throughout the last couple of weeks of June.  This is a really important period of time for pupils and holds many of the lasting memories the children will form of their time at Glynwood, so please avoid taking any holidays during this term.

Make sure pupils continue to bring in their PE kit on a Monday and take it home at the end of the week as you never know when the chance to do additional practise may arise. 

If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to make an appointment any time or pop in to see us after the school day finishes.

I am sure we will have a fantastic last term together.
