Our Year 6 Staff: Mrs Downey and Mrs Quill 

Friday 21st July 2017

All the children and adults had a fantastic (and tiring) weekend at Derwent Hill, with all the children taking part in the activities.

As part of our end of year celebrations we all enjoyed our lunch at Frankie and Benny’s, followed by a wonderful afternoon at the cinema.

Today James was awarded the star of the year award and will enjoy using his prize of a cinema voucher over the holidays.

A big thank you from all the Year 6 staff for the lovely messages and gifts.

Of course, it is the end of the year and for the Year 6 children the end of their time at Plains Farm Academy.  All the staff would like to take this opportunity to say well done and good luck to all the children in their next school.  We’ve had a hard but enjoyable year and look forward to a great holiday.

Well done everyone!

Friday 14th July 2017

This week has been eventful in Year 6! The SAT results are in! We are tremendously proud of everyone in our class for their efforts and hard work this year. All the results will be in the end of year reports on Monday 17th July.

On Monday we had our end of year trip to Flamingo Land. It was fantastic and we had so much fun. The journey was eventful – with 5 people being sick! (yuk!) When we arrived, we had our lunch straight away so no time was wasted. Some of us were braver than others and enjoyed the thrill of the high, fast rides while others, (including the teachers’) preferred the more chilled out rides.


On Wednesday, we had ‘Mini Olympics’ at Sandhill View. There were many events and we worked hard in our teams to complete them all.

Today we had our Leaving Assembly (boo hoo!). This was an emotional time for everyone. Our teachers were very proud of our confidence and talents -we performed amazingly. The slideshow showed many of our memories at Plains Farm and we can’t wait to make many more in our new schools.

Next week, for those of us who are going to Sandhill View in September, have their transition week: Monday to Friday. The children who are not will come to school as normal. For children going to Derwent Hill, they will not go to Sandhill View on Friday. All children going to Derwent Hill are to arrive at school for 1.30 pm.

In the Golden Book this week was Keira R and Leah C for their ICT skills during our Leaving Assembly.

The certificate for excellent attitude this week is awarded to Mason W for his confidence when performing – well done!

Attendance: 93.3% which is below with the target of 96%.

Minutes late :  147 minutes – Please help our class to improve this.
