It was with special thanks to PSO Oakley and Breese that the Year 6 children have taken part in the Young Cadets course. They have learnt more about the role of the police and some of the things they do. They learnt the phonetic alphabet, about forensics and anti-social behaviour.
On Friday, we held their ‘Passing Out’ parade in front of the whole school. They acted out their scenarios demonstrating the skills they had learnt and were then awarded their passing out certificates and badges by PCSOs Oakley and Breese and Police Officer Lightfoot.
Well done Year 6! Click the link to see them with their certificates.
As this school year draws to a close, it is also a time to be hopeful for the future. We are hopeful that we can come back together as a whole school and have assemblies in the hall and playtimes where all classes can mix and play together!
HOPE is where we feel positive about the future – where we have dreams and wishes and believe that things will work out right! Let’s see if things work out right for a little paper boat…have a watch of this video about a little paper boat with big ambitions and dreams of sailing around the world like a giant cruise ship…..
That little paper boat had so many challenges along his journey – he was all on his own at the beginning in a world that he didn’t understand, and then there was the scary rat, the rain, the wind, traffic and the drains – so many scary experiences! But along the way, he was always hopeful – and he made friends (the dog!) and at the end – his adventures had only just begun!
Our Year 6 are coming to the end of their time at Claverley – but, just like the paper boat, their adventures have really only just begun! As we go through these last few days, let’s reflect more on the value of HOPE, and how important it is – particularly for our Year 6 pupils as they are about to leave and step out into secondary education. I am very hopeful that they will go on and continue to live their ‘best lives’ and am sure that they will have many exciting adventures ahead of them!

One more step along the World I go
When things go wrong, help us to keep hoping.
When we are sad, help us to remember that happiness will come.
When we are lonely, help us to remember that people care for us.
When we are worried, help us to trust that you will never leave us.
Please help us to live in hope.
Our year 6 children had a fabulous day at the Pioneer Centre yesterday. We started the day with a zip wire and abseiling. The children then had lots of fun on the giant inflatables- racing and playing games. After lunch, the children did climbing and an obstacle course on the high ropes – not for the faint hearted! The instructors were well organised , encouraging and ensured the day was fun for all. Our year 6 children were impeccably behaved and a pleasure to take out. A very BIG THANK YOU to the PTA who funded this trip.
Year 5 have worked brilliantly in teams today.
They have impressed us with their problem solving and creativeness. Their smiles (and ours) say it all!
Whilst Year 6 visit Pioneer, we are going to have a day of practical skills and problem solving for Year 5. We will be baking biscuits , programming Microbits and bridge building. The children have chosen their recipes today and are enthusiastic about demonstrating their skills and eating the results…
We be grateful for a 50p contribution from each year 5 for ingredients.
After the disappointment of having their residential cancelled, Mrs Benson suggested a sleepover in school! With support from Mrs Wade and Mrs Richardson, the plans were made and at 6pm on Friday night, 17 very excited children returned to school. They were armed with airbeds, bedding, bags which looked like they were stopping for a week and plenty of snacks!
They played rounders on the field, ate hot dogs at 7pm and played more games. At 8.30, they started making their own pizzas!
They had another time out on the field before showing us their play followed by a few rounds of ‘Wink Murder’.
They then settled in their rooms to watch a movie and eat a few more snacks before the final ‘lights out’. It was an interesting night but all were very good!
After a 6.00am start, there were beds to deflate, bags to pack and rooms to organise. Then a delicious breakfast of pancakes and juice followed by a quick game of ‘Capture the Flag’.
They were a great bunch, well mannered and looked after each other. A lovely time was had by all!
Good morning everyone,
What a weekend! We had a great school sleepover for year 6 on Friday night. They came back to school and enjoyed hot dogs and pizzas. They enjoyed rounders on the field and games in the hall. We did all manage some sleep too! It was a good night and I think they enjoyed themselves!
Then lots of you probably stayed up to watch the football last night and despite their best efforts, it was not England’s night. So let’s start with a song!
There will be a lot of talk in the papers today about how the players, manager and fans behaved. I know that lots of you will be feeling sad and disappointed. So, today I want us to think about decisions and consequences – as every choice that we make has a consequence – and it is up to us to make the right choice so that we have a positive consequence.
I wonder how many decisions you have made today already? Have a think and share….
…I think today, so far, I have made several decisions – including what to eat for breakfast, what to wear today, what to say to my children who were disappointed about the football…
Thinking about the decisions we make can be really hard especially if we want to make others smile, feel happy and positive.
Have a think about how you are going to speak to people today, or how you are going to react when your parent asks you to get up, or how you are going to behave when you get to school?
We are all ‘free’ human beings with the ability to choose and do what we want to do and what we actually do or don’t do affects others.
Our choices, thoughts and actions all have an impact on us, but they also affect the people around us. This happens the other way round too.
Watch this clip on how to make good choices.
So as you go through your day, try and think about your choices before you make them – try and think about what the consequence might be and see if this helps you to make the right choice.
Please help us to be wise.
Help us to realise that there are consequences to everything that we do.
Please help us to make good decisions that will work out best for ourselves and for other people.
Can we all learn this song ready for the Leaver’s service – One More Step Along the World I Go
Today, let’s think about the concept of Trust – what it means and how it can help us to be brave.
Have a look at your hand – hold it up in front of you and study it? What do you see? Have a look at everyone’s hands in the class – are they all the same size and shape?
Do you think the size of your hands determines what you can do with them? For example do you think we can all hold the same number of apples or coins in our hands? Hands are really important as we use them in so many ways….
What is happening in this picture?
2 people are holding hands – but can you describe who these 2 people might be? Why might a child hold an adult’s hand? How might this make us feel? ……………
…………….safe, loved, cared for, warm?
Listen to this poem called “Father’s Hands” and have a think what message the poet is trying to convey about how they feel….
Here are some of the words from the poem.
Thank you for the abilities that you have given us.
Thank you, too, for the adults in our lives who love us and keep us safe.
Thank you that you hold the world in your hands.
Thank you that we can always trust you.
