06.07 .2020: Hi Year 6, well, what a change in the weather! We hope you’ve managed to have a good week in spite of all the wind and rain. This week, we have a range of exciting activities for you – in main maths, we’re going to focus on puzzles. we have lots of fun and challenging maths puzzles for you to try. In English, we’re going to have a Speaking and Listening week: you will have the opportunity to test your questioning and reasoning skills and, also, your powers of persuasion. You know all of those lovely hobbies you have? Well, by the end of the week, you’ll be able to tell everyone about them in French. In history this week, you’ll have the chance to become a film director by creating a storyboard for the super-exciting tale of The Wooden Horse of Troy! Phew, this is going to be a busy week but, hopefully, lots of fun too. Look after yourselves and your families. We hope to see lots of you when you pop into school on Wednesday. Love from Miss Moss and Miss Worthington Xx

Evie in 6AW has been working so hard – WOW! Whilst researching South and North America, Evie really enjoyed searching local landmarks and putting these into her own map.

Please keep your wonderful work samples coming in!
We had to share these with you! Emmy has worked so hard in creating a ‘hug in a box’ for some of her friends. How special is this?! Sometimes, the smallest ideas mean the most! These boxes are truly beautiful Emmy! Take a look also at her fabulous rainbow!
Below you can see the fabulous and breathtaking poem by James S. in 6AW. I really love how much thought James has put into this piece – it made me quite emotional reading this. Thankyou for all of your fantastic efforts, James 🙂
