School Update

Good morning everyone,


How lovely it is to see the sun out again and I hope you will all make the most of it before some cold weather returns on Sunday.  With tomorrow being the 75th anniversary of VE-Day I know that you may have lots of exciting things planned, remember if you do get any good pictures or do some great work then please send me a copy and I will make a video to show them all.


Whilst I think about work, Mr Haigh has starting collecting together examples of your amazing 'lock-down' writing and he is going to make a display of these in school.  Remember keep trying to access the work your teachers are sending you and don't forget to keep those standards high! Your teachers are there to help and support, please ask if you need anything.  



11+ Information

This week we have been notified by the LINCOLNSHIRE CONSORTIUM OF GRAMMAR SCHOOLS about the slight changes to the 11+ tests scheduled for this September.  They have changed the test dates.  The new test dates are:

  • First 11+ Test – Verbal Reasoning 19 September 2020
  • Second 11+ Test – Non-Verbal Reasoning 26 September 2020


These dates are one week later than originally planned.  Parents of Year 5 children who wish to work on 11+ at home can access free online resources by visiting our 'Home Learning' page where we have added a link to the resources. 


In the 'home learning' section of the website we have also put the revised Key Dates for 2021 Entry, as well as information from both King’s School and KGGS and a series of answers to Frequently Asked Questions. 


Year 6 transition

Mr Haigh has been consulting with the secondary schools and he has been busy telling them all how amazing all of our year 6 children are.  Our understanding is that they are looking at alternative ways to complete the transition process and they will be in contact with families very soon to share these with you.  It may be worth checking out the websites of the secondary school as they have starting adding a transition page onto these. 


Virtual PE Challenge

Don't forget that it is not to late to enter the virtual Penthalon which is being arranged by Mr Plumb and the Lincolnshire School Games team.  The details have been sent out to you all and they are on the Home Learning page of our website.  It would be great if we could get some entries from our school. 


I understand that these are uncertain times for us all.  However, I also understand that the Prime Minister is due to announce the ‘next phase’ of the lock-down on Sunday as part of the Governments Daily Briefing.  Perhaps after Sunday, we might have a better understanding of how the lock-down or the next steps will affect schools and of course our children and their families.  We have begun making plans for the reopening of school so that we can make sure we can open as soon as possible in the safest way possible. 


Take care and stay safe, I hope you all manage to enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend the best you can.


Mr Nicholson
