World Book Day
As a part of World Book Day, the author M.T. Sanders visited school to talk to us about his books that feature his Newfoundland dog called Monty. Monty was not only the star of the books, but also a hit with all of our children. On World Book Day, the children dressed up as characters from their favourite books. As you can see, they have all look amazing. Well done Year 6!
PE - Dance
Year 6 have been learning a Hakka dance routine. They all put their heart and soul into their performances and have really enjoyed doing these routines.
SATs Meeting Information
Here is some information to help you make sense of the SATs tests that your children will be sitting in May. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Today, we have been learning about the circulatory system. Have a look at our circulatory creations.
In science, we have been learning about how light rays travel from a source in straight lines, and how they can reflect off a mirror before reaching our eyes to enable us to see the objects behind us.
As part of our Science work on ‘Light’, Year 6 have been using mirrors to try to see a label on their own back. They then drew the journey of the light ray to show how they were able to see the label.

Year 6 have really enjoyed learning all about biographies and writing biographies of famous people. They have all produced some fantastic final pieces of writing.
Year 6 have had a great time exploring different media and the effects they make. They are building up to creating their final pieces of work which will be themed around survival and camouflage.
Science- Bird Beak Buffet
Year 6 investigated which shape of beak would be most effective at retrieving food. Each group had a different shaped beak. The groups rotated around the feeding stations attempting to get as much food as possible. The children really enjoyed this activity. The children then related what they discovered to what Darwin found out when he studied the finches on the Galápagos Islands.
Year 6 enjoyed their Tower Wood residential trip. Both children and adults thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had an amazing time. They took part in lots of activities including:
Making Camp Fires
Please enjoy having a look at the photos that we have uploaded.
The children in Year 6 have now been given their school planners. These school planners are designed with the intention of preparing the children for their transition to High School therefore they will be asked to write homework tasks and notes in their planner as the week progresses. The children are responsible for recording these tasks and due dates in their journals. We would greatly appreciate if parents could check journals each week and sign off once their children have completed tasks set. Space is also provided for parents/carers to make comments should they wish to do so. Homework will be given out on Tuesday and should be handed back in by the following Monday at the latest.
