Today, Year 6 took their programming skills to another level. They were able to use a online software to code/program their Micro:bit (mini computers) to carry out desired actions. Some children had their Micro:bit displaying 'Hello' messages and some children were able to display different symbols on their mini computers. Year 6 really enjoyed seeing their programming skills in action and through these new, exciting hardware devices!


Trust Football Tournament

Today, 8 members of Year 6 represented St Anne's Lydgate at the Trust Football Tournament. They had an excellent attitude and great sportsmanship and successfully secured the 4th place position. We are extremely proud of every single one of you! What an excellent day it was!


Experience Pentecost

This morning, Year 6 walked to church to take part in Experience Pentecost. They moved around to different stations to fully understand the Christian holiday that celebrates the time that the Holy Spirit descended to the 12 disciples of Jesus. Lots of excellent learning and reflections occurred and some thoughtful questions were asked. Well done Year 6!


Revision Scavenger Hunt

Today, the children went on an outdoor scavenger hunt to find and answer different SATs questions. They supported each other to work out and answer the different questions to help with their revision. 


This morning, the children used an outdoor cone game to test each other on their grammar and punctuation knowledge. They had to support their peers to name and give examples of different grammar terms. Excellent work Year 6!


Child Bishop Saint George's Day Collective Worship

This morning, our Child Bishops, Jack and Max put together and presented an excellent assembly all about Saint George's Day. All the children were really engaged and loved being quizzed at the end to test their listening and understanding. 


WW2 Eden Camp Educational Visit

Today, Year 6 had an amazing day exploring Eden Camp to enhance their learning of WW2. They each came dressed as evacuees and really enjoyed finding out more about what life was like for different people during 1939-1945. 


This afternoon, Year 6 found out about the different views around creation. We started by reading and understanding the first Chapter of Genesis 1, then watched a video all about The Big Bang Theory, we then explored the different viewpoints surrounding the two theories and had a debate to discuss which theory they believed in the most. We had some excellent points added to the discussion! Well done Year 6!
