The week started with stormy weather which developed into a glorious week of sunshine and plenty of fun activities including abseiling, stand-up paddle-boarding and den building.

How muddy am I?!
Spring Term 2019
The topic for the children in Year 6 was “The Vikings Are Coming!”. They kicked off their new topic by inventing their own Invasion Games in PE.
The children explored texture and pattern to create their own Dragon Eye sculptures.
Dragon Eye Sculptures
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed interviewing prospective candidates for the role of Viking Hero. They asked some very interesting questions!
What a bunch of vicious Vikings! Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their workshop, learning huge amounts, experiencing Viking life by handling artefacts but – without a shadow of a doubt –the most enjoyable part was using a sword to chop their teacher’s “head” off!
Please note : no teachers were harmed during this workshop – a few cabbages met a rather sticky end though!
The children flexed their artistic muscles! They used colour wash techniques and a palette of “cold” colours to create the front covers of their Viking saga books. Their pictures had to be ominous and foreboding to mirror their stories.
Artists at work!
Autumn Term 2018
Our topic this term was "Into The Unknown".
In Year 6 the children made their own networks to help them understand how computing networks operate.
Year 6 learnt about the importance of E-Safety. They thought about how they would react in different scenarios & created some very informative Online Safety posters which are displayed around the school to help younger children make sensible choices.
Creating E-Safety posters.
Bikeability Week in Year 6 was a great success – the children learnt to cycle safely on the roads.
On the way back to Castlewood.
It was an exciting time on Times Tables Rockstars, with Year 5 and Year 6 going into a tournament battle against each other. The Staff were very proud of the level of participation resulting in the students’ speed and accuracy in times table knowledge being dramatically improved.
