Spring Term 2019
The topic for the children in Year 6 is “The Vikings Are Coming!”. They kicked off their new topic by inventing their own Invasion Games in PE.
The children have explored texture and pattern to create their own 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!
Autumn Term 2018
Our topic this term was "Into The Unknown".
In Year 6 the children have been making their own networks to help them understand how computing networks operate.
Year 6 have been learning about the importance of E-Safety. They have thought about how they would react in different scenarios & created some very informative Online Safety posters which will be displayed around the school to help younger children make the correct choices.

It's been an exciting time on Times Tables Rockstars, with Year 5 and Year 6 going into a tournament battle against each other. The Staff are very proud of the level of participation resulting in their speed and accuracy in times table knowledge being dramatically improved.
