Year 6 have been having cookery lessons using the excellent facilities at Southfields Academy. Not only did the resulting cakes look good, but the senior management team confirm that they tasted good as well, and look forward to sampling some more of their cooking!
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...
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!
Year 6 and many of key stage 2 are all reporters on our award winning Radiowaves website. Please pop over and see our amazing work!
In Year 6 we have many exciting adventures. This is a Smilebox of a trip that a year 6 class took around London in 2013. They enjoyed a wonderful coach trip around London and visited all the famous landmarks, including an exciting visit to 10 Downing Street!

We go on exciting trips including a one weeks
residential trip to Hindleap Warren.... This
is an amazing experience, where we cover aspects of the curriculum that
can't be covered in a city school - such as rock climbing, watching the
star, night walks, orienteering, and much more!
