The end of term is hurtling towards us and we are all caught up in the end of term mayhem that always exists at this time of year. Although busy, it is an exciting time of year and the children love it because of all the different activities going on. It does make them very tired though, so it can make them a little more irritable.
Today the Year 6 held their ‘Apprentice ‘ event which is part of a ‘Young Enterprise ‘ project that they have been working on. All the other children love to walk around and see all the different stalls that they have created and the Year 6 have to pitch their wares in the hope of becoming the winner. This award goes to the group that has raised the most money from their project but before we let them know this they have to go through a gruelling feedback from some members of staff that makes Alan Sugar and his panel look like a bunch of pussycats. All the money raised does go to a charity that is selected by the children so it is all in aid of a good cause. I will let you know the winner in my next blog.
Last Friday, as the Year 6 were on their school journey, children from Year 4 and Year 5 took part in the Primary Schools inter schools cricket tournament. There were about 12 teams involved and I am pleased to announce that Little Heath were the runners-up. This is a particularly good achievement when you consider that most of the other children were all from Year 6. I would like to congratulate all those that took part and once again I would like to thank Mr Mills for all his efforts in training and organising the team.
Another big event that took place this week was ‘Little Heath’s Got Talent’ which we held on Tuesday night. It was a great event and all the children that took part really did themselves proud. It was a real variety show which included acts which ranged from speed stacking to gymnastics floor displays. As has become the norm at these events the staff did a little number at the end and, because we had a very sympathetic audience, it was well received although I do not think that any of us will be giving up our day jobs soon. I have included a couple of pictures in my blog this week so those of you who did not attend do not feel like you missed out.

Next week is the last week of term. I think we are all ready for it even though I cannot believe how quickly this year has passed. We still have a lot to pack in before we finish though. On Monday most of the year 5 and 6 are going to the Para World Championships. On Wednesday it is the popular teachers versus Year 6 rounders match although I will not be there as I have to attend a meeting away from the school. On Thursday the whole school will watch the Year 6 dress rehearsal of their leavers show which is called ‘Villian’s Got Talent’. Finally, on Friday, we are having our ‘Leaver’s Assembly’ so we can all say goodbye to our Year 6. This is always a sad time because most of these children have been with the school for eight years and it will be sad to see them go. Do remember that as it is the last day of term we will be finishing at 2.00pm.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I will not see you on Monday as I will be at the Queen Elizabeth stadium with Year 5 and 6 but I will see you all on Tuesday.
