Summer Half Term 1 Medium Term Planning

SCIENCE - Electricity - Year six have had fun in science this week making circuits. They have learnt about electrical currents, wires, volts and amps. They designed their circuits and then made them to see if they would work - Lets just say we had a lot of noise from the buzzers!

Arthog / SAT information power point for parents.

We are getting so excited in St Therese class about our upcoming trip to Arthog Outdoor Education center. We have been talking about it in class and even written a few lists, the lists mainly consisting of sweets and chocolate! - We are on the countdown.... 46 days!

Spring Term 2 Weekly Planning

Eat Well Week - Jollof Rice - What a fantastic eat well week we had, full of fun, food and full tummies. As a class we made a super healthy Jollof rice which blended nicely with our Africa topic. Year 6 set to work, cutting up peppers, sweet potato, scotch bonnet peppers and all the other ingredients. The staff room smelt amazing! We all lined up once it was cooked to have a plateful of our creation.... I think all of year six would agree that it was very VERY HOT!!! They all came back for seconds though! Great effort and team work Year 6.

Eat Well Week


Please read the recipe from the link below and let me know if there is any issue with your child preparing or eating the ingredients during Eat Well Week. We are going to be making it on Thursday so please get your permissions into school before then.

Thank you.

Mrs. Stowell & Mrs. Abercrombie

4th February 2022 - NSPCC NUMBER DAY - Number Day has been a great day today at school. The children and staff have had so much fun, dressing up in our number clothing or wearing shapes. It has given the children the opportunity to apply their maths skills to everyday scenarios, whilst raising money for such a fantastic cause with our cake sale. Year 6 have taken part in the 'Smartie party' sticky puzzles and Professor Leighton Mathematical adventure. Its been a great day had by all, and we even got to eat the smarties!

12th January 2022 - Science - This week we have been looking at the circulatory system. We carried out an experiment to see what happens when blood types are mixed. We made our own blood, which everyone really enjoyed and then carried out our experiment. Please ask your child what happened when we mixed the different blood types. Next week we will be looking at the function of the heart.

Prayer Stations - Within school each class has set up their own prayer station. Each station is a part of the nativity story with its own bible extract and a fun activity to take part in. Today it was Year 6 turn to visit each station and complete the activity with our school Chaplains. We made a wish, designed a special prayer on a donkey, decorated a sheep and other did many more activities along the way. It was lovely to take part in the prayer trail and see everyone having fun.

9-12-21 - A Pantomime Visit - Today we had a fantastic performance of Aladdin presented to us in school. We had fun and laughter with plenty of booing with all our friends, we even got to ride a magic carpet.

9-12-21 Year 6 had a wonderful surprise today when Mrs Quine came into class to give us a special present each. Mrs Quine had taken the time to knit every member of Year 6 a little toy Penguin. They are all wonderful and each has their own little hat and scarf set all in different colors. We all gave our penguins a name and they will be coming on a special adventure to Arthog next year with us. - Thank you Mrs Quine from all of Year 6

Big Maths 6/12/21 - Another fantastic week of brilliant achievements in Big Math. - Amazing Year 6!

BIG MATHS! - This week we had lots of achievements in big maths.- Well Done Year 6

Friday 26th November - Dazzle ship painting. Today we painted our Dazzle ships, we used acrylic paints to create our designs onto our clay ships. It was a little messy but great fun, everyone copied the designs we had done in our topic book really well. The Dazzle ships will be coming home soon so you can have a closer look at some great work.

19th November - Children in Need - This morning we were joined on screen by Joe Wickes, the nations PE teacher. We had a fantastic half an hour work out, we had lots of fun and it was a great start to our day.

WW1 DAZZLE SHIPS. This week as part of Art and our WW1 topic we have been looking at Dazzle Ships. We designed our own dazzle ship and then created them out of air drying clay. We had a lot of fun but it was slightly tricky to create the shape of the ship, but we all helped each other and we all ended up with a dazzle ship at the end of the session. Please watch for our update of the painted dazzle ships next week.

ANIMALS IN HANDS. We had a fantastic morning meeting lots of creatures and animals when Mo visited us on Thursday from Animals in Hands. We held some weird and wonderful animals, from a bright green chameleon and a rather large African bullfrog to stroking the wonderful silky feathers of a beautiful barn owl and the softest fur of a chinchilla. It was amazing to meet these animals up close. We also had a slithering time holding a slithery snake!

St Therese's class, with some pupils at home who joined us,  had a teams meeting with Mr Kemble from the Marches this morning. It  was both interesting and informative. Mr Kemble sign posted us to the Marches Y6 into 7 Transition page, a link to which I have included here:

The children this morning, had a chance to go on the page and felt that it was: `reassuring`, `interesting`, `the videos were nice because we could figure out what lessons we would be doing`, `the videos were informative about how they would teach the lessons` and `interesting to see the different classrooms`.

It is well worth a few minutes of your time to look at, as Mr Kemble said that there were lots of activities to do that would support the children's transition.

Hi everyone, just a quick note to say that Ms Ryan and I are really looking forward to seeing you all when you come in for your `days`. Could I ask though, when you come in , that you please bring your copy of  `Framed` with you as we shall be needing it for next year. Thank you.  Take Care. Mrs Stowell.
