The last week of term and the last week for our Year 6 children in primary education. It's always an emotional time as the Year 6 children are part of the Seaburn family. There will be a celebration afternoon on Wednesday when the children will present their play to parents, then the school and Rotary Club make individual presentations to the children. A delicious high tea created by our cooks Gillian, Julie and Ruth will be served. On Thursday Year 6 will eat in style at Bellinis before their disco. We hope they have a memorable week.
As they move onto their various secondary schools, we would like to wish them well. A hard working group, we are sure each and every one will find success in their new schools.
Astonishing SATS Results
Last week our SATs results were released with Year 6 achieving amazing results. Not only did we achieve 100% level 4s in maths for the second year running but 50% are at level 5 with 18% achieving Level 6. In reading 95% achieved Level 4, in writing 100% and in Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar 95%. We always said that this class has been the most industrious and determined of all our classes to reach for the stars but they haven't just reached for the stars but zoomed into orbit. Congratulations to you all.
Take One Picture Book Showcase
On Thursday families are invited to come into classes from 2.30pm to look at the children's work from the transition Take One Picture Book project. Songs and poems will be shared at 2.30pm and 2.45pm in some classrooms too.
The uniform section of the website clearly specifies what you need to have ready for the Autumn term and we hope you find this useful. We have noticed that trainers or trainer style shoes are creeping in and, whilst we may turn a blind eye at the end of the school year, we expect all children to wear sensible black leather type shoes in September. The grids at the back of the annual report are new to staff but, in the year ahead, they are being asked to be far more accurate in their half termly recording on issues such as uniform compliance. Children always want to do well so please help them to achieve green grids by reading the uniform guidance carefully.
Children love new pencils, collecting rubbers and themed pencil cases but we are asking for these to be kept at home. For many years we have had a rule not to bring pencil cases into school as they can be quite a distraction and take up too much space on desks. The school provides all the equipment children need.
How do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?
Nothing can surpass the excitement of live theatre. On Thursday 3rd September members of the Drama Club will be travelling to Newcastle Theatre Royal to see the matinee performance of "The Sound of Music". We have two seats left at a cost of £19.50 to include travelling on the Metro so please get in touch with Sheena Baker in the school office if you would like to your child or children to join us.
