Our first outdoor learning lesson of the year involved successfully working together to design and build waterproof lean to shelters.
Year 6’s Holy Week Presentation.
Happy Easter to all of our Class 6 families. Head to our Teams page to see an Easter message put together by Class 6. Enjoy the holidays!
It’s lovely to see the children all settled in and working hard. We’ve had some nice practical work over the last couple of weeks in science, the children worked well making their circuits and testing the conductivity of materials this week. Last week we looked at which materials were best for insulating.
Today we celebrated the European day of languages by learning some Spanish. The children all created their own mini conversations with a partner as well as learned some interesting facts about Spanish culture.
Let me start with a big well done to all of the children in class 6 for a great first week back. It has been lovely to have all of the children in and showing their willingness to work already.
This week the children have been working hard every morning with maths and English, we have really focused on reading this week and trying to get back up to speed. Alongside our reading in class, all of the children have started using Reading Plus, our new online reading lesson. We are going to continue to use this at school during lessons but the children can also log on at home for some extra reading time.
Everyone seems to have enjoyed our afternoon lessons in the first week back; we have started our history topic of the USA and already completed a science practical in our properties of materials topic. As well as this the children have looked at some work by Vincent Van Gogh in art and taken part in two very active P.E. lessons.
What a busy first week back! Enjoy the weekend Year 6 and I look forward to seeing you all raring to again on Monday.

Year 6 have worked well to create their own farewell message following a very different and unusual year. Good luck to our class of 2020, who now go on to their secondary schools.
