Your child’s journey through Year 6
We are all excited about the term ahead. We have got off to a great start with the children impressing us with their enthusiasm for and engagement with the learning opportunities so far. We are all committed to making sure our learning environment is happy and fulfilling for everyone by following our rules of being Ready, Respectful and Safe. Please see our curriculum document here: Year 6 Curriculum Overview – Autumn 2019 In Maths, our learning will focus on number. It is imperative that your child knows their multiplication tables and the related division facts. This is essential for children to be able to move onto fractions, decimals and percentages. Please talk to us if you need ideas for supporting your child with this.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
Year 6 children took time out from rehearsals to produce some wonderful posters for their upcoming performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Careers Fair – Urban Synergy
Year 6 were lucky enough to have a visit from Urban Synergy, an award winning early intervention mentoring charity. The children enjoyed listening to professionals talking about their journey to success and any obstacles they had overcome. Year 6 children were also given a chance to meet a group of eleven role models in small groups in speed mentoring sessions.
After all their fantastic hard work this year, year six enjoyed a trip to Chessington. We had a fantastic day on the rides in the sunshine! Well done year six for all your efforts!
Centre of the Cell
Here are some photos from year six’s latest trip to the Centre of the Cell at Queen Mary University. We had a great day, enjoying both going into the interactive cell (and all the science video games it had to offer) and taking part in an Evolution and Inheritance Roadshow.
Some of the games played in the pod can be found here: https://www.centreofthecell.org/learn-play/games/
Year 6 have launched their Explorers topic with an Antarctic maths hunt
The Royal Naval College
Year 6 took part in a variety of Tudor activities at the Naval College; they tried on Tudor costumes and even learnt a traditional dance!
