Year 6 children enjoyed a picnic to round off their time at Bells Farm in celebration style.
On Wednesday, Mr Gill kindly arranged a mini sports day for the children who have been attending school. They had a great time competing against each other! They started with the javelin throw, then they moved on to a vertex throw, followed by a short distance sprint and a long distance run. The children had such a great time; they didn’t even care when they lost their shoes during the race!
I cannot believe that this is your very last week of primary school! It’s a little different to how it would usually be I know, but we are still trying to make it as special as we can for you.
I am looking forward to seeing more of your friendly faces this week as I know some of you have signed up to pop in for the day! As well as this I just want to remind you about the picnic and assembly. All of you in Year 6 are welcome to come into school on Thursday at 12:30pm for a picnic on the field (we will provide the food) and at 2:00pm on Friday for a special leavers assembly. You will need picking up on both days at 3:00pm.
I really do hope that we see you all on those two days! We would really love to!
Over the holidays you might like to do some work just to keep your brains working until September! Here I have attached an English and a maths booklet that you can work your way through.
We will miss you all terribly Year 6. We wish you the very best of luck in your new schools and as soon as we are able to we will definitely be throwing you the party that you all deserve!!
Year 6 have been learning all about the environment; in particular – global warming. They have been studying how our planet is changing and what affects unbalanced gases are having on our climates. Today we carried out an experiment to simulate the ice caps melting. Our results were conclusive…we now know that if we don’t make some serious changes to the way we do things on our planet, it will be destroyed!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here is your home learning for this week.

Your writing task this week is slightly different. At school we are going to be writing a letter to our new secondary schools, and I would like those of you at home to do the same.
The letter is going to be all about you! These are the things you should think about before writing it:
– What makes you happy? Can you list 10 things?
– Who are you? What is your name? What is your personality like?
– Your family and pets – who have you been living with during lockdown? Who do you get on with the best and why? Do you have any pets?
– Primary school – what school have you been to? What lessons do you like? Do you have any special or funny memories?
– Hobbies – what do you do for fun? What hobbies/activities did you do during lockdown? Is there anything you have missed doing?
– Your new school – what things are you looking forward to? Are you worried about anything? What would you like your new teachers to know about you?
– Ambitions – what hopes and dreams do you have for the future? Are there any jobs you think you would like to do? Are there any places you would like to visit?
