I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas break and the children
are ready to hit the ground running in the new term! A massive thank-you for
all the lovely cards and gifts the children got Sandra and myself. We have
certainly been spoilt!
We’ve got lots of exciting things going on this term,
beginning with our school open day this Friday. Year 6 will be performing their
shadow puppetry show that combines light, our previous science topic, and World
War II. As school prefects, the class will also be showing new children and
prospective parents around the school.
In English we will be initially looking at biographies,
including that of Anne Frank, before writing our own. In maths we will be
continuing with fractions, decimals and percentages before moving onto 2D and
As always, feel free to come and have a chat with either
Sandra or myself after school if you have any questions.
Happy New Year!

Year 6 have been working hard on their citizenship project over the holidays.This project serves to deepen their understanding of the United Kingdom, their place within and to develop the skills and personal qualities needed to become and leaders and responsible members of our society.

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!
