Good morning,

We have reached another Friday and it looks like being a wet end to the week! Hopefully we can get some sunshine to enjoy over the weekend. Have a great day and I will announce the Virtual Star of the Week this afternoon.

 

Although we are not all in school this week, a lot of good learning has been happening both in our homes and at school.  Well done to all children who have completed tasks set online this week.  We would like to keep our weekly awards up and running and so we will now have "Virtual Shooting Star" every Friday!

 

Our shooting star this week is Harry for his fantastic work over the past few weeks. Well done Harry!

Dear year 5 parents

 

If you are considering the possibility of your son or daughter moving on to high school at Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School (BRGS), now is the time to act.  Our entrance examination is scheduled for Saturday, September 12th 2020, provided we are out of the current lockdown and social distancing allows it.

 

In order for your child to sit the entrance examination you first have to register them with us.  You are able to do this now by visiting our web-site and using the “Register” button.  Our web-site is www.brgs.org.uk, and if you click on “About Us” and then “Admissions” you will find the correct page.  The following link will take you directly there:

 

https://www.brgs.org.uk/about-us/admissions

 

On the admissions page you can read the essential information you need about applying to BRGS – you can download our guide to admissions - “the blue book”, along with parents guides, sample papers and watch our open evening information video.

 

All registrations have to be completed by 12 noon on Tuesday 23rd June 2020.  The registration system will be locked at this point and school will not accept any registrations after this time.

 

We don’t know whether we will be able to have an open evening this term.  If not, we are looking at the possibility of having one in late September/early October.  Obviously, this will be after your child has sat the entrance examination, but it will give you the chance to see the school for yourself.

 

If there is anything to do with the registration process or the entrance examination you would like more information about, please get in touch with us at enquiries@brgs.org.uk.

 

Many thanks

 

Paul Reeves

Deputy Headteacher

Sing Up Song Of The Week

 

Sing Up is producing a song a week for us all to learn to help bring us closer.  We thought it would be a great idea if children could learn the same song each week and then all sing it at 3pm each Friday.  This is a great way to help us all feel 'in it together'.

Here is the link https://www.singup.org/singupathome/song-of-the-week Practice it daily and then sing your hearts out each Friday at 3pm.

Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning

 

At this point of the year some Year 5 parents will be starting to think about whether the Grammar school test is worthwhile for their child. The test is a different format and experience to work covered in primary schools; it partly takes the format of non-verbal reasoning. Non-verbal reasoning is a test that involves the ability to understand, interpret and analyse visual data and solve accompanying problems.

To help you become familiar follow these links for example activities that you and your child can work through.

Useful Websites for Home Learning

 

Here is a list of websites which can be used to support children's learning at home. There are a variety of activities, resources and ideas on these.
