The Y6 team is Mr Bramley and Miss Vernon, who are supported by Mrs Stock, Mr Smithson, Mrs Boulton and Mrs Spriggs.
We are looking forward to working with the Y6 children and are looking forward to a successful year ahead. There are many opportunities to embrace in Year 6 and we look forward to sharing these on the year group page.
On Friday we did our bit to raise money for ‘Children In Need’!
Some of the Year 6s did a fabulous job at decorating their own t-shirts with all things spotty, even featuring the school logo.
We guessed the number of sweets in a jar, which Dave won - don’t eat them all at once.
There was a colouring competition and some fantastic entries made it hard to choose a winner. Eventually, the judges announced that Olivia had won.
Children also enjoyed the penalty shoot out against Mr Bramley.
Finally, children voted for their favourite staff bake in our school ‘bake off’. Mr James’ Lego cake was a favourite.
As a school we raised over £380! Amazing!
A warm welcome back after Half Term break.
This week Year 6 were visited by Chesterfield Athletics to take part in some different activities: discus, hurdles and javelin. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in new activities and were given useful hints to improve their techniques. As part of this term we will be learning about the Olympics, Paralympics and Ancient Olympics.
Year 6 have been working exceptionally hard to write their own Greek Myths, inspired by those we have read. There are some very imaginative storylines and creative endings.The class book will hopefully be collated over the half-term and ready for loan from our school library.
Reminder: please remember you also have your half-term grammar challenge to complete to be in for a chance to collect your rewards. The hot chocolate and biscuits are waiting for you ...
Year 6 have had a busy week. This included our science experiment to extract DNA from a strawberry as part of our ‘Inhertiance and Evolution’ topic.
