What's Happening ...
We are delighted to continue to help as sports leaders each lunchtime with groups from Y6 supporting the fun being had by each class doing sports activities on the field, lead by a coach.
This half-term's value is compassion, which has prompted us to get started on our Diocesan primary school leavers' fundraising event - a skipathon. Taking advantage of the current enthusiasm for skipping on the playground, we will be organising activities for the classes to take part in on Thursday 24th June. We have chosen Sefton Helping Hands as our local charity and will be having a visitor from the organisation come along and speak to us about the work that they do in the area.
We will take a note explaining who we have supported to the Leavers' Service at the Anglican Cathedral on Thursday 26th June along with footprints telling of our hopes for the future. Parents and grandparents are welcome to come along to the service - details will follow.
Our own Leavers' Service at St.Luke's Church will be on the last day of term, Friday 20th July at 9a.m. Come along and bring a hankie!
We went to Sandalwood each Friday earlier this year and now hope to invite our friends over in the summer term for afternoon tea. The visits were enjoyed by our children and the residents alike and have led to a good relationship being built up over many years as part of the Smile Challenge. A group of representatives from the class will be visiting the Smile celebration at Greenbank High School on Wednesday 4th July to explain how much enjoyment we get from our visits.
A representative of Toybox charity, which the school has supported for many years, is coming to visit us on Wednesday 6th June. They will talk about the charity's work in collective worship and will spend sometime with Y4 and Y5 going into greater detail on the successes they have had in improving the lives of young people in Central America.
GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD
Along with Y5, we will be visiting St.George's Hall on Wednesday 11th July to see the In Another Place presentation, "The Greatest Story Ever Told".
Year 6 pupils are allowed, if accompanied by a permission slip from parents, to bring a mobile phone if they travel to and from school without an adult. They, must of course, be switched off when they arrive and be placed in the box in the classroom until they leave.
Members of the class are looking forward to their PGL holiday from Friday 15th June - Monday 18th June at Boreatton Park in Shropshire. Details on the time we will set off will follow.
Having already had one day of cycling in school, Y6 will be having their cycle out and about on Wednesday 20th June. In three groups, the class will take a route they have had a hand in planning supported by staff from Sefton Council.
On Tuesday 17th July, Y6 class members will be taking part in a Swim Safe session at Crosby Lakeside organised by Sefton Council and the RNLI. Information about what everyone needs to bring along to follow.
With secondary school just a few weeks away, Sefton Council's Road Safety Team will be coming into school to talk to Y6 about the need to stay safe to and from school. There will be lots of good advice and discussion about travelling by bus, train, bike or on foot.
This half-term we are working with Y5 to plan some community action as part of the Archbishop of York's Youth Trust initiative. There are several sessions in school to make us more aware of how we can be of benefit to our community followed by doing something practical to show we care and make a difference.
