YEAR 6

Mr Otterson

Welcome back to school.  I hope you all had an amazing Christmas holidays and that you were all well behaved and are ready for the challenges of the Spring term.  It is another very busy term with year 6 starting to gear up for SATs.  There will be lots of fun things on the way like basketball tournaments to participate in and many other sporting festivals and competitions such as the dance festival at the SAGE Gateshead.  It is only a short half term of 5 weeks before the February holidays then quite an early Easter too at the end of March.  That means we have to get cracking straight away for preparing for SATs, so be prepared for a few more tests! – AARRGGHH!  We are lucky to have NUFC coaching in school this term, so Year 6 will be receiving their coaching slot on Wednesdays to go alongside their usual Friday P.E timetabled session – so please try to remember those P.E kits and try to bring a tracksuit too, so we can go outside when the weather permits.  I am sure we will have another fun -filled term at Glynwood and I am looking forward to the rest of this Spring term together.
