Our Timetable

Our Viking Stunning Start! September 2021

We had a great day at our Viking workshop: learning lots of facts and acting out events and some of their legends.

Our trip to Jorvik 18.11.21 - The Dig Site


We had a great trip to York to visit the Jorvik Viking Centre.  After a long journey we made our way to the 'Dig' site where we experienced Viking Sagas; explored various artefacts and even carried out our own 'archaeological' dig!  After lunch we then headed to the Jorvik Viking centre where they have reconstructed a street in York based on archaelogical findings - found at that site.  We really enjoyed going back in time to discover what life was like in Viking times...

In PE this half term we have been using moves from the Haka to create our own 'Hakas'. Firstly we created group dances and then used those ideas to create a whole class one - we hope you enjoy it!

18.02.22 - Maths Problem Solving

18.03.22 - Maths Problem Solving

Year 6 had a great time today learning about what skills you need to become a Forensic Scientist / Crime Scene investigator.  They took part in a lot of great activities that Forensic Scientists would do, such as: taking fingerprints, making a shoewear print and analysing hair and fibre samples.

Special Events!

Our Community Litter Pick - 23.09.21

This last couple of weeks we have been learning a lot about climate change and what we can do to help prevent global warming, so today we enjoyed being able to do 'our bit' by picking up litter in our local area.

Service of Remembrance - 11.11.21

Year 6 had the privilege today to attend the Service of Remembrance at Heath Lane Cemetery. It was great to be able to take part in this special event and the children were brilliant and respectful.  We were very proud of them, particularly Isobel and Sahar who lay the wreath given from our school.

It was made particularly special as one of the war veterans came and spoke to us after the service.  He showed us one of the commonwealth war graves and explained what they had written on them and why.  We all really enjoyed listening to his experiences.

World Book Day 03.03.22

We created our own persuasive adverts to promote our favourite books - which one would you choose?

Red Nose Day 2022!

This year we dressed up as Super Heroes!

World Maths Day - 23.03.22

We had great fun celebrating World Maths Day, working in groups, solving various Maths problems and challenges!
