It has been a busy week in year 6 - we have been perfecting some of our writing pieces, tackling percentages, learnt about the story behind Chinese New Year, competed some WWII art work and some of us have even worked on our cycling skills! These children keep us really busy :)

Next week is also very busy. We are continuing cycling, as well as our normal lessons. 

Everyone should have received their Whitby pack, any problems please contact the office. Thank you for those who attended the meeting. 

Have a fantastic weekend.

Cycling, Whitby and more.....

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Thank you for everyone who came to parents evening, hopefully everything we handed out will be useful! And well done for encouraging your children to come to our after and before school session - things are heating up SATs wise but we are aiming to keep the children calm and enjoy all the other things school can offer as well.

Next week cycling begins: you should have received a letter with the details. Let me know if not and I will, send information again.

Whitby meeting is next week on Tuesday, 4.30pm in the main hall. If you cannot attend, a pack will make it home to you with all the final details. 

Have a fantastic weekend.

Christmas has arrived!

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Well done all for making it through a busy half term!

Thank you for all of you that have made it to school rain or shine, attended the town hall concert and consistently attended extra curricular activities. It is great to see everyone getting involved in school life. 

Each child has had a revision pack, some practise tests on SATs companion and a letter about our upcoming SRE and SATS meeting, please return the slip if you would like to attend. Let us know if you need any help at any point!

This week the children have completed some lovely Christmas crafts and their own movie based on the book The Chirstmas Carol! The were excellent - we have some budding actors and actresses in year 6!

Thank you for all of your support this half term and have a fantastic Christmas.

Mrs Harding
