Glamorous Dress Reminder -Tuesday 8th June

A GENTLE REMINDER:

Launch of ‘Because…’ Mini Adventure – Tuesday 8th June

  • It has a music focus that will start with the whole school ‘going to the theatre’. EYFS and KS1 will be dancing to the beats of the Lion King, while KS2 will enjoy the delightful sounds and glamour of the stage musical ‘Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat’. We will then all immerse into the pomp and grandeur of watching the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
  • As we will be treating this day as if we were in fact front row, we would like all the children to come dressed glamorously (NO HIGH HEELS), as if they had a Royal Box at the Albert hall! The children will be greeted on the morning with their tickets and will be able to have interval snacks (very important tradition of musical theatre!)

Year 6 Weekly Overview 7.6.21 to 11.6.21

Dear Parents/Carers,

Happy half term.  I hope you all get a chance to have some quality family time over the next week and hopefully get out and about now that restrictions have eased a little.  It was lovely to chat to lots of you tonight at the parent consultations – you should be very proud of how hard your children have worked this half term.

Next half term brings with it two exciting Mini Adventures which should keep everyone engaged in their final half term at SSPP.  We start with ‘Because..’ which has a music theme and end with ‘The Olympics’ which has a sporting theme.  Then we have our end of term outing to look forward to (details should be on their way to you via email very soon).

Please find attached the weekly plan for after half term Year 6 Weekly Planning 7.6.21 to 11.6.21.  Please note:
