Code breakers

This afternoon Year 6 have used their Maths skills across the curriculum. They have been learning even more about WW2 and code breaking. They are now experts and sending secret messages and decoding mystery symbols.

Talk for Writing

 

We have also finished our scary versions of Little Red Riding Hood and are now learning about tales of overcoming fear. Ask your children what their hot write will be about. I can’t wait to read them! Year 6 have been using so many skills; it is so impressive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rock Steady workshop

This morning the children have had a rock workshop. It was very exciting! Children experienced what it is like to be part of a band. Everyone got to sing along and some children tried out playing electric guitars, the drums or keyboards. I think we will be singing the song for the rest of the day… Look out for the letter about Rock Steady and return ASAP if your child would like to join Rock Steady.

IWM Duxford 

On Tuesday, Year 5 and 6 visited the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. There were so many things to see! I hope you enjoy looking at these photos. We were fortunate enough to see a variety of planes including: Spitfire, Blackbird and Vulcan and we even saw a one-man submarine. We also got to walk through a Concorde! Please ask your children what their favourite part was.

 

Wednesday Night at Longtown. 

What an amazing day we have had… Mrs Hales’ group have been on an epic waterfall walk which involved some serious climbing and scrambling! Mrs Walters’ group have been on a mountain walk where they could literally hop between the border on England and Wales. Mrs Lymn’s group have been canoeing and having the best time!

Somone said, “One day I can tell my grandchildren about this.” Need I say anymore?

 

 

 

First Night – Residential 

 

 

Good afternoon everyone.
We have had an absolutely amazing time so far. When we arrived yesterday we were all so excited and the views were incredible. We all played some team games outside. It was very cold!
Our first evening meal was chicken, chips and beans followed by apple crumble and custard, or a yoghurt.
Today each group went on various activities. One group went canoeing, one went on a mountain walk and the other went on a waterfall walk.
We are all looking forward to our evening meal and evening activities. What an action packed day!

 

Tennis Tournament and Talk for Writing

This week we have been continuing our warning tale in Talk for Writing lessons. The children participated in some drama activities to prepare for their hot write. I can’t wait to read their imaginative stories. I am so looking forward to seeing how they build suspense, create tension and most importantly show how their characters have learnt their lesson from the warning.

On Monday we were really fortunate with the weather and had a wonderful time at the Year 5 and 6 tennis tournament. It was a super opportunity to use our sports skills.

 

 

First full week complete

Year 6 have continued to be amazing and have worked so hard all week.

In English we have been learning about writing warning tales and in Maths we have been learning more about place value; we have been reading and writing numbers up to 10, 000, 000.

This week we have also had our first tennis session. We were very lucky with the weather and got to play in the sunshine.

Everybody is still looking incredibly smart and is wearing their school uniform with pride. Please continue to remember your ties.

 

First Day!

What a super first day back! Year 6 have worked incredibly hard today. The children have really impressed us with their imaginative story writing and beautiful handwriting.

Year 6 have also had a great afternoon of taster sessions trialling Netball, Dodgeball and Street Dance. Your child may have brought a letter home if they are interested in attending one of these clubs.

Thank you to everybody for wearing your school uniform with pride. You all looked so smart – keep up the great attitudes.
