Primary School Safety Event 5/2/19
Yesterday, Year 6 walked to The Deco to take part in a Safety Day.
We saw performances from NSB and Rushton Academy, based on risks taken on Social media and celebrating our differences.
We took part in several workshops about Fire safety, Knife Crime, Crime prevention and Rail Safety. The children listened really well and asked some great questions. Hopefully they came home with lots of useful information for you to share.
Well done Year 6.
The Year 6 Team, want to wish everyone a Happy New year and we are looking forward to a fantastic 2019, full of New learning, Residentials, completing some of our pledges and plenty more!
A few Reminders:
We have a meeting for All year 6 parents and Carers on Monday 21st January, in the Studio. this meeting starts at 3:30pm and will cover all aspects of the SATs tests for 2019. We will also be giving out information about Booster sessions for the next few months.
Watch out for any letters coming home in the next few weeks with regards to the residential and information about what the remaining children, who are staying behind, will be doing.
HOMEWORKWe are giving out regular homework now (on a Wednesday) and look forward to seeing it returned on Monday.
Our theme this term: Is planet earth in danger?
This is a topic based on ecological problems ( recycling etc.) , climate changes and endangered animals. Please watch any news items relating to these areas with your child as it could be useful in our topic work.
We would be grateful for any donations of Plastic wrappings and packaging that we can use for a large scale Art project for our base area.
We have been very busy over the last few weeks in Year 6. We are still enjoying our class novel, 'Street Child' and are using the text to enhance our writing. Through drama and discussion we have created adverts to persuade Victorian children to enter the world of Chimney Sweeps, Coal Mining and Factory work.
We have loved seeing ( and tasting) some fabulous pieces of homework and can't wait to see lots more over the next few weeks.
The Year 6 children thoroughly 'enjoyed' their visit to Holdenby House. They were given jobs, threatened with the cane and even baked some bread. Mrs Bumbridge, Miss Crumpet and Mr Rhett all ensured the children were immersed in the Victorian times and even 'The Baggage' ( The teachers) were put through their paces.
Its good to see that the children are now using their knowledge from their visit to enhance their Letter writing this week and we can't wait to show you it on Parents evening!
Welcome to Year 6.
What a great start we have had already this term, with some hard work and fabulous ideas already emerging.
The children spent the first week getting to know their new mixed class and finding out about topics and themes in Year 6.
Our first theme this year is 'The Victorians' and the class are currently learning about the Coronation of Queen Victoria. We are also reading the book 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty which all the children are thoroughly enjoying. We have created some Freeze frames based on a Chapter called the 'Stick Man'.
We are looking forward to going to Holdenby House on Monday ( 24/9/18) and can't wait to see you all in your Victorian outfits. If you thought we were strict then wait until you meet the staff at Holdenby!
Don't forget that Homework ( Victorian Inventions) is due in on 28.9.18,

We had a great time at Muddy Education Today. Lots of new skills learnt; from den building, orienteering and weaving.
Here are some photos of Sports Day today. Well done to all the competitors and thank you to all the Parents and Carers that came to support them. We have some talented and very determined children!!
Year 6 have created some outdoor art in the style of John Banovich.
Last week the Whole school took part in a 'Sponsored Bounce', to raise money for our pledges. The weather was against us, but luckily for Year 6 we managed to complete our bouncing successfully. Thank you for any sponsor money you generated.
Year 6 were busy leading up to Easter with our Easter egg challenge. Could we build safe aircrafts for our eggs to fly in using only recycled materials?
Some of us are off to The Pinnacle Centre for the day today. Have a look at their website:
