Welcome to Oldaport Class!
The school play!
This term, Year 6 will be focusing on rehearsing their school play. We are pleased to announce that the play this year will be 'Hoodwinked'. There are lots of characters in the play and many solos to be sang; I am sure that Oldaport will rise to the challenge!
Over the next few weeks, the children will be designing the scenery, creating a programme and organising costume letters as well as rehearsing the play itself. Keep your eye out for more information as the term progresses.
The play will be performed on two nights: Wednesday 10th July and Thursday 11th July. An official letter explaining how to book tickets will be sent out shortly.
What else is happening this term?
This term, KS2 will be going to the tennis centre every Tuesday afternoon for one of their PE sessions. This is a fantastic opportunity where the children will be taught by professional tennis coaches, developing a range of skills.
Year 6 will also be working with a cricket coach from Plymouth Argyle Football Club each Wednesday this half term. This is part of the Premier League Primary Stars Programme which aims to inspire children to undertake more physical activity and take part in a range of sports. Miss Askew will be working closely with the coach to deliver cricket lessons.
Exciting news for Year 6! This half term, it is our turn to go to forest school with Mrs Readey! This will take place every Monday afternoon in Long Timber Woods. All children who have gone previously have really enjoyed the activities. What a great way for year 6 to wind down after SATs!
A letter providing more information about this will be sent out shortly.
Ivybridge Community College will be holding a Transition Workshop day for those attending in September on Friday, 5th July. The day will explain the transition tasks and give the students the opportunity to draft their ideas and to explore these further in the Art, Humanities and Languages Departments. A letter regarding this should have been sent directly to you from ICC with a consent form to return before 28th June. If you have not received a letter about this, please speak to Miss Askew.
Year 6 Transition Day
The official transition day for all year 6 students is Tuesday, 9th July. On this day, the children will spend a whole day at ICC as a taster, helping them to understand what it will be like in Year 7. Every year, the children always return the next day full of enthusiasm - they report the lunch is particularly enjoyable!
