COVID-19 Response. This is a copy of the Class 6 page from the summer term. 'Frozen in time' and archived July 2020.
UPDATE ~ WEEK BEGINNING 20/7/2020
Hello Class 6!
Well, we have made it to the final week of term!
Way back in March, we never imagined that we wouldn't have everyone back to school before we finished for the summer holidays. We are so sorry that we didn't get to do all of the wonderful trips and activities that we had planned for you as you prepared to leave St James'. We would still love to mark this important landmark in your lives by having a special zoom meeting on Thursday afternoon. Your parents will have all received a text to explain that we have a gift that we would like you to collect from school this Wednesday (22nd July) between 11am and 12 pm. You MUST NOT open this gift until the zoom meeting on Thursday (no Pandoras please!) During our special zoom meeting, you will have the chance to open the boxes together as a class. Login details for the zoom meeting will be sent out to parents this week.
We will say it on Thursday, but we just want you to know how very proud we are of you and what a genuine privilege it has been to teach you all for the last two years. We think each and every one of you is an absolute superstar and we are so excited for you as you close this chapter and begin your next at high school. Please do come and see us as the years go on and let us know how you are and all that you have achieved. You will forever be part of the St James' family.
Lots of love,
Mrs Stott, Mrs Farnworth ad Mrs Lowe
