What a busy, fun filled, exciting final half term we have had at school! Our Year 6’s have enjoyed their last few weeks as primary children before leaving us to take the path to their next adventure. They were able to join 600 other primary school leavers at Winchester Cathedral for a Leavers Service and also gave a moving and emotional performance at their Leavers Assembly at school. We are so proud of each and every one of them, they have grown into mature, caring and resilient young adults who will continue to make us proud as they journey on to the next stage in their educational careers.
Along with the many celebrations throughout the country, we also celebrated our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with an afternoon tea party on the field. The children made some amazing hat creations which were ‘royally’ inspected by our wonderful visitor and everyone enjoyed the delicious cakes on offer from FROGS. The children in Year 3 sang a song from their recent Easter performance and Years 4 and 5 entertained us with songs from their fantastic performance of Project Planet! The garden was also open so that you could all see the fantastic work the children, Mrs Hilder and Mrs Godfrey have been doing. Our garden is looking superb! The afternoon was rounded off with a rousing rendition of the National Anthem!
All of our KS2 children were transported to Ancient Greece as an introduction to their new topic in June. The children (and staff) looked amazing in their costumes and spent the day learning how to play games, solve Archimedes puzzle, learn battle tactics (and find their ‘battle’ faces!) and also held a mini Olympic games on the school field. The children had a fantastic time and thoroughly immersed themselves in their characters.
We have also been welcoming our New Year R cohort into school for their transition sessions. They all looked so excited to be with us and we look forward to them starting their school life and joining our Ropley family.
