Art and DT

Year 6 were inspired by their new literacy book 'Skellig' to make clay birds. 


During our PHSCE lesson on mental health, we learnt how to empty our worry buckets. We watched our flowers open in the water to reveal our best strategies to help us cope with our worries. 


Year 6 enjoying reading their new class book 'Holes'.

Reading Buddies

Year 6 love going down to reception to listen to their buddies read. Today was even better because we were all dressed in our pyjamas! 

Marvellous Maths

Year 6 have been exploring sequences, finding 'nth terms' using algebraic formulas and investigating relationships between numbers.

Hot Seating

Year 6 hot seated the characters from the poem 'The Highwayman' to find out more about their thoughts and actions.

Narrative Poetry

In English we have been doing lots of work on a narrative poem called 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. We have done some fantastic work on figurative language and explored the authors use of metaphors, similes and personifications to create imagery. We have created our own metaphors and displayed some in the corridor. Feel free to pop in and see our creative ideas. 


Year 6 have been developing their skills and knowledge in hockey this half term.
