St. Philip's Catholic Primary & Nursery School

"In the light of Christ, where everyone is valued and learning is celebrated"

Classes  »  Year 6

WOW where has the time gone? If you are like us, you can’t believe that these children are beginning their final year in primary school. It is a very important year for the children - one in which they will have greater responsibility around the school, one full of memorable events and the one in which they will complete their SATs. The children will also be preparing for life after St Philip’s in their new secondary schools. Year 6 is a place where self- confidence, independence and self-worth is highly promoted and it is always wonderful to see them flourish throughout the year. Supporting the children through their journey in Year 6 will be Miss Stewart and Mrs Shea. There are lots to look forward to in Year 6. The residential to Robinwood, Eden Camp and the end of year production (to name a few). We want every child to reach their full potential and be happy at school and we’re sure if we work together we can make this happen!

I didn't want us to miss out this year so on Tuesday 6th July our school is taking part in a virtual sports day against other schools. All you have to do is have a go at some of the activities attached and submit your scores here by 12 noon on Wednesday 8th July - You do not have to do all of the activities and can pick and choose which ones you would like to do. The more points you submit for our school the bigger our chance of winning. There are awards of sports equipment goody bags for Team work, Determination and Passion. BUT REMEMBER- The most important thing is to have LOTS OF FUN! Just like we always do at our St Philip's Sports Days! For more details and all the activities see the attached document.
