Cadbury’s World

Year 6 enjoyed a great day out to Cadbury’s World this month. We really enjoyed the free chocolate and the 4D cinema ride! The trip allowed us to learn a little more about the origins of chocolate which fits in with our summer theme of ‘Aztecs and Chocolate’.

Oliver preparations.

Year 6 are busy rehearsing for their musical masterpiece of ‘OLIVER’ the musical. We have been learning all the famous songs and we enjoyed watching the film to study how the actors created the dramatic film version of the musical. We will need help with the costumes, so please be thinking about this at home. Thank you.

Year 6 day at St David’s fields!

Year 6 had a very successful day at St David’s playing fields making lots of new friends and taking part in some fun activities. All the Year 6 pupils in the local area took part  so that the children could make new friends ready for a new start at secondary school. We wish them all the best of luck for next term!

 

Residential

We are off on residential next week. Please make sure you have all the things on your kit list (or an alternative version!) Fingers crossed for nice weather!!

SATs week is nearly here!

After months of hard labour, the class will be taking their end of Key Stage tests next week. All of them can be very proud of how hard they have worked and we know they will do their very best. Remember to get a lot of rest this weekend and that breakfast is available, in class, from 8:20 onwards each day. Good luck Year 6!

Sink or Swim?

The class are swimming again this term on Friday afternoons. They are all progressing well – watch this space for details about our upcoming sponsored swim.

Welcome to Miss Doughty

New to school is Miss Doughty who has arrived this term to teach Year 6 along side Mrs McArdle. Miss Doughty has a wealth of experience in Year 6 so the children will have plenty of added support in their preparation for SATs. She is also a keen producer of school performances and will be leading the end of year production.

Amazing Animals

Our topic this term is all about animals, their habitats and how to classify them. In literacy, we will be discussing whether animals should be kept in zoos or not and our class trip to Whipsnade Zoo will enable the children to make an informed decision about this. Science will be focused on finding out about the classification groups that living things can be sorted in to and how animals and plants adapt to live in extreme environments. Topic work will see the children investigating different biomes and also exploring the advantages and disadvantages of a visit by the Zoo to our community! So look out for Lions on the playground!
