Welcome to the Summer Term in Class 6

Dear parents and carers,

I hope you all enjoyed the Easter holidays, it was lovely to see the sun over the break too! I am sure you and your children have mixed emotions about their last term at St Helen’s, but I plan to make it their best one yet.

Over the next few weeks, there will be transition meetings and Q&A sessions for the children, with both Bideford College and GTS.  Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with to make the upcoming transition as smooth as possible.

Throughout this term there will be many exciting events happening (if Covid allows) including: singing lessons for a MAT awards ceremony at the Queens Theatre in Barnstaple, a camp out on the 8th and 9th July, surfing lesson, a tennis festival, a local beach trip and lots of science, geography and DT as part of our Sow, Grow, Farm project.

This term’s theme is Stewardship - Caring for our World and we will be focusing on looking after our world and local area.

Mr Waldron will be taking the class for PE so the children can continue to come to school wearing their full PE kit to school on Tuesdays.

We are also continuing with DPA (Daily Physical Activity) so they will need to wear supportive shoes or trainers that they can run in safely.

Please ensure that your child always has a piece of fruit, a bottle of water, sun hat and sunscreen in school. We often work outside ad-hoc and children soon become dehydrated in the warmer weather.

Don’t forget to check Seesaw and Twitter to see what we are up to in class throughout the day and to receive messages about your children's learning. Your engagement in their learning makes a huge difference to their learning and well-being.

I am really looking forward to a fantastic term with your children and look forward to speaking with you about their progress next week during the online parent consultations. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes,

Mrs Fidler
