Welcome to Ibis Class!
What a busy term we have had so far!
The children worked incredibly hard up to and during sats week. We knew that the tests would be tough but as always, our children made us proud with their determination and perseverance. We are looking forward to getting the results back at the beginning of July as we know every single child worked their socks off and tried their hardest. We are so proud of them!
Straight after SATs came Bikeability week for the majority of the children in Year 6. This exciting week gave the children the opportunity to learn all about how to be safe on their bikes and how to ride their bikes on the road. The two experts who ran the Bikeability week said how hard the children worked, how well they listened and they were both impressed by the progress they all made.
We just wanted to take this opportunity to say well done to the children that were picked to sit the science SATs tests a couple of weeks ago. At first some of them felt very apprehensive and nervous about sitting yet another SATs test! But, as always, they took it in their stride and did Bidbury proud! So we wanted to say a well done to Max, Chloe, Jamie, Luke and Josh!
Bidbury had an action packed and exciting day on Euro Day this year! Many of the children played in the football tournament and showed excellent team spirit, wonderful enthusiasm and great determination. Who knew that we had so many talented footballers in the school?! The children who did not take part in the football enjoyed a fun day filled with art, crafts and research. They also took the time to make and decorate banners so they could cheer on their favourite football team in the afternoon. Thank you to Mr Land for organising such a fun day! We all loved it!
BIRD LEARNING DAY
The children of Bidbury Junior School enjoyed two days of bird learning fun! The day was jam-packed with lots of different and creative activities for all children to take part in. Year 6 enjoyed researching facts about the ibis and caracara bird. They then gathered all of their exciting facts and made beautiful information posters which will be shared with the rest of the school during the bird learning assembly. Year 6 also produced stunning art work! Every child is hoping that their artistic skills will be showcased in the hall, on the bird learning display board.
WHAT'S COMING UP?
Year 6 still have lots of events to look forward to!
As you probably know, they have been working exceptionally hard on the end of year production which they are performing on Wednesday 13th July at 2pm and 6pm. You can buy tickets at our school office. It really is a performance to remember and we cannot wait to share the children's hard work and acting skills with you all!
We also have our exciting London trip on Thursday 30th June! The children are lucky enough to be visiting The Natural History Museum and are then off for a trip on The London Eye. We can't work out who is more excited, the children or the teachers! The children need to wear school uniform and sensible footwear. They are allowed to bring cameras (no phones) and will need to bring two lunches as we will be back at about 6:30pm.
Monday 18th July brings two exciting events! The end of Year 6 assembly will be on in the afternoon and family members are more than welcome to join us in celebrating the end of Year 6 with the children and teachers. It is also the Year 6 party which involves LOTS AND LOTS of exciting things (including the infamous water fight!)
Please don't hesitate to call the school if you have any questions about any school events that are coming up!
Bye for now
Mrs Heath and Miss Le Lion :)
