Equality and Diversity Workshop 

Guardian Angels - Friendship Fortnight

Odd Socks Day

Remembrance Day Collective Worship


Synagogue Visit

Anti-Bullying Production


The children enjoyed a whole school anti-bullying production from Altru Drama during Friendship Fortnight. The production gave them a clear message about what bullying is and the effects it can have on people. The children learnt how to deal with bullying and how witnesses to bullying can play an important role in helping to stop it.

Investigating our Pulse Rate


During their science lesson, the children enjoyed carrying out an investigation to see the effects that exercise has on their pulse rate. They used the knowledge that they had gathered during our topic to explain what happened and draw suitable conclusions to explain this.

Think Chart Work in History


The children worked hard to complete their Think Chart Organisers during their recent history lessons. .



Treaty of Versailles

They learnt about the Treaty of Versailles and explained the impact that the punishments had on Germans.

What events led to the outbreak of World War 2?

In other history lessons, they used a range of different sources to establish what role Adolf Hiler had in the lead up to World War 2 and identified the key events during this time.

Andy Grant


Year 6 were extremely lucky to have Andy Grant, a local hero, come to visit our class. He is a former Royal Marine who was injured in IED explosion whist on tour in Afghanistan. The explosion resulted in him having his right leg amputated. Since then, Andy has completed many challenges, including: abseiling down The Shard; competing in the Invictus Games (winning two gold medals and a bronze); becoming the world’s fastest amputee over 10km. During his visit, he told us all about his journey, his future challenges and how we can all work hard and achieve our own dreams. He is truly inspirational and we will remember his story and message. During English, the children are going to be creating a biography all about him and look forward to sharing these with Andy.



The children worked in pairs to sort arithmetic questions into three categories – those that could be answered mentally, those that required jottings and those that would need a written method. Once they had discussed each one, they ranked the questions in each group from easiest to hardest before using their chosen strategy to solve the questions.

World War Two Play-in-a-Day


Year 6 enjoyed preparing and performing a Play in a Day based on World War II. The children learnt that at 11.15 am on 3rd September 1939, Britain's Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain announced that Britain was at war with Germany via a radio broadcast. They also learnt about conscription, evacuation and how war impacted on life at home. The play was a great success and the children thoroughly enjoyed the day. We have a lot of budding actors in our class. Well done!

Mission Statement Collective Worship 


A group of Year 6 children helped to plan and deliver a special whole school Collective Worship for our Mission Statement Day. They thought carefully about the statements and ethos of our school and used these to help choose the scripture.

Mission Statement Art


The children worked hard to create their Mission Statement artwork. Each group took one of the statements and thought carefully about how they could illustrate this.



Place Value Maths Activities


The children showed off their competitive sides during a recent place value game during Maths. They used their place value charts to write their numbers and then partitioned these canonically. A great insight into what the children already know and what they need to do to improve their learning further!

British Values - Democracy


This week the children took part in the much-anticipated School Council elections. There were a number of candidates who put themselves forward to be a School Councillor. After listening to each manifesto carefully, our class headed to the polling station and the children complete their ballot papers and cast their votes. The candidates were of a very high standard and it was extremely difficult for the children to decide who to vote for. A big well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to our new Year 6 School Councillors! We know that you will represent our class and our school extremely well throughout the year.
