A working party of Year 6 parents has been meeting to organise your child’s leavers party. Our aim is to make this a truly unforgettable evening for the children.
Following the initial meeting in January, it was decided to hold the event at Esholt Village Hall which has been the venue for the party for the past couple of years. We have booked the hall for Friday 15th July.
We can also have the hall the night before to decorate it and get everything set up. We will need as many helpers as possible for this but can sort that nearer the time.
We will be booking a bus to transport the children to the venue, and hope to provide a popcorn machine, entertainer, photo booth, drinks and snacks. If you have any contacts to individuals or companies who may be able to support our event, this would be really useful.
Clearly organising this celebration will incur significant cost. We discussed a fund raising event to raise money to go towards the party and keep the cost of tickets as low as possible.
Mrs Dale has agreed for the Year 6 parents to co-ordinate a Mother’s Day Secret Room on Friday 4th March.
On Tuesday 1st March we will be having a mass present wrapping session where we hope as many Y6 children as possible will come with their parents to wrap all the gifts.
Children do need to be accompanied by a grown up for this.
We also require helpers on Friday 4th March to help run the Secret Room and help the children choose their gifts. The room will be open during the school day so once again, if you are able to help for part of the day that would be much appreciated.
We have set up a Year 6 leavers party page on Facebook which any Year 6 parents are welcome to join. Please search for us and we will add you in. All members and ideas welcome.
As part of the Science and PHSCE curriculum it is important that your child understands the changes that will take place to their bodies. Therefore, in the summer term, the school nurse will be visiting Year 6 to talk about puberty and ‘growing up’ issues.
Boys and girls will be spoken to separately. The boys will have their discussion with a male health worker, who will be joining the female school nurse during this visit. Both are experienced in talking to Year 6 children about this time in their lives and will provide honest but relevant and appropriate information.
We felt it important that you, as parents, know this discussion is taking place so that you can prepare your child and follow up this session in whatever way you feel is appropriate. Also it would be much appreciated if you could encourage your child to attend the session with a sensible and mature attitude.
