Summer Term Updates

Class Story: - Our class story this half term is called 'The Boy in the Tower' written by Polly Ho-Yen.

Summer Term 2 - End of Term


Over the last few weeks, the children have been getting ready for moving onto their secondary schools and carrying out their leavers celebrations.  All of the children took part in transition days to their secondary schools and thoroughly enjoyed these, finding them really helpful to put them at ease with knowing what to expect in September.

The children also took part in many different leavers' celebrations.  Firstly, the children had a leavers' party on the penultimate Friday evening.  They all enjoyed eating Dominoes pizza, having ice creams and playing different games, including hide and seek around school and a 'Quiz Mr Rodgers!' game too.  The evening ended with a huge water fight on the field which the children really enjoyed.  Many thanks to all the staff who helped to make this event possible.


Throughout the term, the children have been rehearsing a leavers' production which they performed during the last week of term.  The musical, called 'The Next Big Step' was a 'tongue-in-cheek' look at primary school life with a look forwards to secondary school.  The children worked really hard with both the acting and the singing and the rest of the school, teachers and parents all enjoyed the performance.  We really do have some future stars in the making here!


On the final day of their primary school life, after signing their shirts, the children had a surprise awards assembly.  Each child had been nominated to gain an award for a certain job in their future lives and therefore received a certificate based upon this.  At lunchtime, Mrs Love and her catering team mad a special lunch for the children, along with a 5-tiered chocolate and vanilla cake.  The children then walked through a tunnel of pupils who clapped them out of school to their parents at the end of the day.


A very emotional day was had by both the Year 6 pupils, their parents and the staff.  All of the leavers' celebration photos have been uploaded to a secure site for parents to download from until the end of the summer.


We are all really going to miss the outgoing Year 6 pupils and wish them all well for their futures.  We look forward to welcoming them back when they have chance to visit the school in the future.

Summer Term 2 - Week 7:


This week, the children in Year 6 have been designing their own cupcakes in maths, using and applying the different arithmetic skills they have learnt over the past year.  They looked at profit and loss, ratio, scaling, 2D shapes and conversions measures for their ingredients.


In computing, the children worked hard to create their own webpage using HTML coding.  They used the website below to create their webpage which they hosted on the school server.


In English, the children have been writing a letter to their new teachers at secondary school.  They ensured that their letter was formal in order to create a good impression to their prospective school.

Summer Term 1 - Week 5


This week, we have been using our Maths skills to redesign the school wildlife area.  We measure the perimeter of the area and then, using a budget of £1200, decided which items we could use to put in the area.  We hope that you like our ideas below.

Summer Term 1 - Week 4:


This week, the children have been busy taking their SATs test. They have all been really focused and have worked hard all week to do their best in each test.


On Thursday afternoon, the class had a surprise visitor in school. During their art lesson, a hedgehog crept into the corridor and poked its head into the classroom. After much excitement from the children, it was rescued and rehomed back in the wildlife area.

Summer Term 1 - Week 3:


This week, the children continued to write their narratives based on the short animation called 'Alma'.  Using precise language for description, the children wrote some superb pieces of writing which described how the little girl entered a shop and built up tension and drama towards the end of each piece.  In maths, the children have been continuing to revise their key arithmetic skills, whilst also looking at reasoning and problems in a variety of forms.


Within their PE lessons, the class continued to learn about athletics, this week focusing on the sport of shot put.  They particularly enjoyed this, proving that there may even be some future athletic stars among the class in the future!

Summer Term 1 - Week 2:


This week, Lola was awarded the trophy for her Tic Tac Toe homework project from last half term.  She wrote some really interesting reports about the RSPCA, Serena Williams, as well as drawing some incredibly realistic 3D shapes and wrote a detailed book review about a recent book that she had read.  The new Tic Tac Toe homework sheets have now been handed out for this half term and so the children are able to make a start on these.  The work is due in on Monday 5th June.

Summer Term 1 - Week 1:


During the first week back after the Easter holidays, the children have been busy carrying out lots of learning.  In PE, they started their topic on athletics.  The children watched videos of both Usain Bolt and Eilish McColgan and discussed both of their running techniques.  The children then learnt how to carry out both a standing start and a sprint start, and began to understand how to use their arms to propel themselves faster during a sprint.


In English, the children watched a short animation called 'Alma'.  They discussed the plot of the film and how the animator used different techniques to give an impression of mystery and surprise.  The children will be using this film as a stimulus for their own writing over the next few weeks, where they will focus on different aspects of narrative.


In Maths, the children have been finishing their learning about shape.  They looked at the vocabulary associated with circles and solved problems which these involved.  They then revised the topic of 'roman numerals', and worked in pairs to solve a puzzle where they had to match up roman numerals to their Arabic number equivalents.
