Year 6 have made a great start to the New Year, working very hard this week. In English we have been reading Environmental poems and having a go at writing our own poems about endangered animals and pollution. In Maths we have been solving some tricky coordinate problems and in Science we have been learning about different animals and their habitats. On Wednesday we had a visit from the local Community Police Officer, who talked to us about staying safe online and not talking to strangers on social media, and not going on age inappropriate sites or games. We also enjoyed watching the Panto performance on Friday.
Next week we will be taking part in the bike fix programme (you don't need to bring your bikes!!) Don't forget that there is a SATs information meeting for parents on Wednesday 16th January at 6pm.
Autumn Term 2018
Year 6 have been very busy this term. We have thoroughly enjoyed our World War II topic, with a visit from Mr Turner from the British Legion and lots of us making Anderson Shelters for our homework tasks. Some of us have participated in football, netball and athletic tournaments and the Head boy/girl and Deputy Head boy/girl attended an Anti-bullying conference at the Village Hotel in Blackpool and then delivered a whole school assembly.
Our School Councillors also unveiled our new friendship bench, which they painted for the playground and the new Trim Trail was installed on the field. We have also enjoyed New Technologies week, where we helped the younger children to use a range of robots and technological toys and games. We have been working very hard with our English and Maths, but have also enjoyed lots of other activities such as learning First Aid in the Heart Start sessions and copying the art work of Gaudi.
This week we have worked in groups to design and make our moving vehicles. Last week we held our Christmas Fayre - lots of Year 6 pupils helped with the stalls and we watched Year 2 in their brilliant Nativity performance. We are very excited about all the other Christmas events coming up, with the Christmas Bingo on Friday 14th December and our party on Monday 17th. Remember to wear your party clothes!!
