Filming for the Martin Lewis Money Programme
On Wednesday 12th November, Year 6 were visited by Martin Lewis (money savings expert). Martin taught the children how to be wise with their savings and the children listened and took notes intently, whilst being filmed for T.V!

Not only did they learn about saving money, they also gained a deeper understanding of just how a television programme is filmed and just how much work has to go into a (what seems like) relatively short 30 minute programme. 3 cameras (manned by 3 people), 2 presenters, 2 directors, 1 hour of filming and 15 days worth of editing go into just 30 minutes of filming- something to think about next time you watch T.V!

Read our new newspaper- released next week to find out more...

Dear Parent/s and Guardian/s,

A warm welcome to Year 6 from Sarah and Millie.

We are both looking forward to this year and journey ahead.

School journey - This term we will be venturing to Hindleap Warren on our residential trip. The trip is an unforgettable experience and one of the highlights of year 6 for me and the children. If you would like to find out more about Hindleap Warren and what it has to offer please visit the school’ s website for or Hindleap’s website for more information about the activities provided: http://www.londonyouth.org.uk/inspiring-young-people/hindleap-warren-outdoor-education-centre.


Our class book this term is  ‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman; a fictional story set in Poland in WWII this book provides great inspiration for writing and generates great class discussion. Throughout the year we will be covering all genres of writing. SATs assessments for writing are made from the children’s literacy and topic books throughout the year. It is important they remember this and produce their best work (which I’m sure they will).


Children will be taught formal and mental strategies in school and will need to practise these strategies at home. We are fortunate enough to have a great team supporting us in maths this year: Taryn (Lead Maths Co-ordinator), Sarah McDonald (Wandsworth Council support team) and Miranda Churchill (school governor).


Our topic in Science is light, shadows and the eye; a fascinating topic, there are lots of practical elements that the children will really enjoy.


Our history topic this term is World War Two. WWII provides so many authentic links to the rest of the curriculum.  If any one has any relatives who had any experiences in WWII and wouldn’t mind coming in to talk to the class that would be great, first hand experiences are often the best to learn from.  If you know anybody please do let me know and we can arrange an appropriate date and time for a visit.


To coincide with our World War II topic we will be exploring the practises of Judaism together.  



Last, but by no means least is our Make do and Mend project in D.T. The children will be recycling items to create their own designs. If you have any: bottle tops, newspapers, juice cartoons (with the screw lid) or old clothes please start collecting them and bringing them to school so we have a good selection for the children.

 Millie and I are looking forward to the year ahead and I hope the children are too.

Looking forward to meeting you all in the playground soon.

 Sarah and Millie

Hindleap Warren School Journey
In  November, Year 6 have the fantastic opportunity to go on a five day residential trip to Hindleap Warren.
This trip allows us to partake in some amazing outdoor adventurous activities, such as abseiling, orienteering, high rise adventure, archery and team challenge tasks. Not to mention crawling through pitch black, muddy, wet tunnels and going on night walks with torches looking for animals.
Not only are our days action packed but we are also kept very busy in the evenings too - diary writing, swimming, arts and crafts and story telling in our pyjamas with hot chocolate before bedtime.
It is an amazing experience and will give you  some special memories which you we will treasure for ever!
