Monday 13th July - bring an old school shirt in if you'd like it signed by the rest of the year group; you also need to bring three or four of your own marker pens/sharpies to use for signing others' shirts. Children will also be given the traditional gift of an autograph book.
The shirts and autograph books of each 'bubble' will be signed by other bubbles during Monday and Tuesday and hands will be washed between signings!
IF YOU ARE NOT IN SCHOOL but would like a shirt signed, you will need to ask a friend to bring one for you or drop one into the office on Monday morning. We will send your autograph book round for signing. If you are NOT AT SCHOOL and would like to write a message in everyone's autograph books, Email it to our Y6 Email and we can print it at school for others to stick into their books.
Wednesday 15th July - the last day for Year 6 - We are going to Church for the Leavers' Mass - permission to be taken to church needs to be Emailed to our Year 6 Email address (further down the page/see Mr Rakowski's letter which was Emailed to parents recently); social distancing will be observed in Church according to guidelines.
Also on Wednesday:
1. children are allowed to wear school uniform for any photos parents might wish to take outside the gate before school
2. children should bring a bag to school as they will take home any books and work that we don't need to keep, along with their shirt and autograph book
3. Those who are not in school should call at the office to collect their bag during the afternoon, or on Thursday.
Finally, many thanks to all our Y6 families for the support you have shown us and your children during this incredible year.
