Year 6

Dear Parents and Carers,

It was wonderful to see to many of you at the assembly this morning, thank you for coming to listen to the children's recount of their residential at River Dart. 

 

Bikeability

Next week is bikeability week. Children taking part in bikeability may wear PE kit and trainers to school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Bikes and helmets should be brought to school on Monday morning via the large side gate to the right of the school and bikes will be left on the Y6 bank. Please do not ride bikes in the playground and do not take them through the staff car park. Children may leave their bikes in school overnight under the shelter outside the hall; you may want to bring a lock if you want to secure your bike. Chesham Bois School do not take responsibility for any bikes left overnight. All bikes are to be taken home on Wednesday after school.

 

Young Enterprise

The children have sorted themselves into small groups and are working on a business plan. In their groups they will be expected to make something to sell or organise a game for children in school from Year R to Year 5.

 

Next week, the children will design a poster to promote their product or game and have time to work on their products / game. Later this month, children in other classes will be invited to bring in a small amount of money and visit the stalls. Following this, each group's float will be collected and counted.

 

To cover the startup cost of the business, each group is entitled to a £15 loan form the school office. They may bring in receipts up to this amount or can complete a form to request up to £15 cash. Once their loan has been deducted from the profits, the money will be donated to a charity nominated by Year 6.

 

The children are very excited about this project, and I hope that you will support them in their endeavours

Kind regards,

Sian Harwood
