Andy Tooze Poet Visit

Today, we started off our week with a visit from Andy Tooze! Year 6 had an excellent poetry session with him and enjoyed writing poems about their hopes and dreams for the future! We then continued our week using poetry to support our learning in other areas of the curriculum: Science, PSHE and History!


Today, Year 6 practised their serving and volleying with their teams in PE. They have made so much progress since the start of the half-term (we even raised our Volleyball Nets today to challenge them further). 


Educational Science Videos!

Today, Year 6 used their Science knowledge to create short videos, explaining how we see objects because of light. They had lots of fun using the Green Screen to create different science themed backgrounds!


Programming and Sewing!

Year 6 have had a very busy week this week, they have been practising their sewing skills, ready to make their WW2 Badges next week and changing and creating variables in Scratch to program different games and activities.

Science Investigation!

Today, during our Science lesson, Year 6 investigated the question: Is yeast a living microorganism? 


Takeover Day!

Today, the tables turned when the Year 6 pupils took over the school to experience the grown-ups' jobs for the day. 


A very busy week!

What a week we have had! Year 6 have been very busy this week. Alongside their usual learning, they have taken part in an African Drumming Workshop, planting trees and hedges on the school grounds and also led our whole school Remembrance Day Service. Well done for all of your efforts!
