A very busy week but lovely to be back, well done Year 6.

Home Practice


Please enjoy reading a good book for up to 30 minutes every evening.


When reading, if you come across any new words that you don’t understand, ask an adult or look them up in the dictionary.

Building up your vocabulary knowledge is really beneficial, so make a list of good words that you could use in your own writing.

The 1,000-year-old Boy : Welford, Ross: Books

In English this week, we have been enjoying our novel The 1000 year old Boy by Ross Welford. We have focused a lot on our writing in preparation for High School. The children have written some great pieces about their passions, challenges they have faced and special anecdotes.

In our Maths lesson, we did some applied Maths. Game Show Maths - Goldenballs and Countdown.

In RE, we re-wrote our information texts about Deacons and how they serve in the Catholic Church for a display in class.

In PE, we practised for Sports Day, worked on our tennis skills and played mini games.

In French, the children used the key phrases they had learned to write a script for the French Cafe session.

In Art, we sketched oak and silver birch trees, focusing on shading techniques.

In Music, the children are learning the songs for our Bugsy Malone production. You will find them in the documents at the bottom of last week's blog, please learn the words!

Drama - Year 6 will be spending a lot more time rehearsing for Bugsy Malone. They did so well in the auditions and with script reading.

Forest School -We had our first session. We learnt how to be safe around a fire. We learnt how to start a fire. Then, we made our campfire pizzas. We chose our favourite ingredients taking care that there was enough  left for everyone. We watched them being fried on the fire. We had time for some exploring and then went back around the fire to make popcorn. We played some hide and seek games and then had a quiet reflection about what we had learnt, discovered or been surprised about.

We all thought the food was delicious!

  #30 Days Wild

As a school we are going to take part in a celebration of everything nature has to offer. This is an initiative set up by The Wildlife Trust. In June, we will be providing opportunities for all children to experience and learn about the wildlife on their doorstep, helping to nurture happier, healthier children, and create allies for our precious natural neighbours.
