Year 6 Update WK 33




Monday 18th June – Dragon Boat Festival Public Holiday – School Closed

Wednesday 27th June – Bugsy Malone production for parents

Thursday 28th June – Year 6 Graduation



Costumes for Year 6 production will be provided in school. Members of staff have been working hard to gather and source various outfits, props and accessories required for the ‘Bugsy Malone’ production.

If you do have anything at home you feel would help with production and would be happy for it to be used please contact one of the Year 6 teachers.

We are very grateful for any help, so all welcome. It is not an expectation for any families to go out and buy costumes. Unless you have been contacted separately regarding outfits, all costumes are being provided/ worked on in school.

Some of the children will be primarily working on costume design as part of their learning contracts so we are excited to include their contributions and learning within the production.

Year 6 Graduation 
Thursday 28th June
Our Year 6 Graduation will be held on Thursday 28th June. You will have received an e-notice regarding this. We are sure you will be thinking about what your child might wear for this very special event. It is an important event in the children’s school life and therefore we expect them to wear smart/semi-formal event clothing for the ceremony.
Boys – suits, shirt and tie (at the very least) or traditional clothing, dress shoes
Girls – party dresses or traditional clothing, party shoes
Healthy Living at BHS
We promote healthy living at BHS and therefore children should only bring water to school. Please do not send milk drinks, sugary drinks or any other kind of drink. We have water fountains and taps where students can refill their (BHS) water bottles throughout the day.

The children have been working hard learning their lines, creating dances, making props and having a blast when rehearsing for the show.



We have some super talented singers, dancers and actors in Year 6 – we are very lucky to be able to work with such enthusiastic children.




This week we completed a rough run through of each scene and we can now focus on polishing up each scene to make this show one to remember!
