Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to Year 6!  We hope you have had a very pleasant and restful summer holiday and are now ready and raring to go with the new school year! We are looking forward to welcoming a new cohort into the realms of independence and responsibility that come with being in Year 6.  As well as beginning our first History and Science projects (World War 2 and Animals), we will be getting the ball rolling with English and Maths, as we have a busy year ahead in order to prepare the children for the transition into secondary school.  We will also have plenty of exciting opportunities to look forward to such as our trip to the Royal Albert Hall and the selection of new prefects! 

 

We are excited to get to know both children and parents alike- if you have any questions/queries, please feel free to ask!  Please also see the "Meet the Teacher" Power Point for more information.

Year 6 Residential Monday 10th June to Wednesday 12th June 2019

Monday

11:30am Ms Yusuf writes "Everything was fine on the way.  We are arriving now so will send another update when we are settled!"

7:30pm Ms Yusuf writes "Despite a wet start to the day, the children have settled in great and had a fun-filled afternoon.  They began with an obstacle course and despite the mud, managed to complete the course in record timing!  They then went on to face the death defying see-saw and faced their fears to climb to the top and balance.  We are now enjoying a lovely dinner before we finish off our night with a bottle rocket activity."

Mrs Hough has spoken to the teachers and everyone is doing well despite the cold and wet and a bit of an issue getting into the rooms until this evening.  

Tuesday

11:45am Mrs Sweeney has messaged to say that everyone is doing well and they are currently doing a climbing activity called Jacob's Ladder!

1:20pm Ms Fairclough writes " We've had a busy morning! We worked on our teamwork and communication skills doing a blindfolded obstacle course, followed by an exciting experience on the colossal Jacob's Ladder.  We then did some fun aeroball on the trampolines and still have loads to go!  All having fun :) "

9:25pm Mrs Sweeney has messaged to say that they have all just got back from a camp fire!
