International Cricket 28/06

On Tuesday, Year 6 went to Somerset County Cricket club to watch England vs South Africa! Children watched the game and were in awe of the women playing!

They were also able to take part in some activities provided by the England Cricket Board (ECB) such as bean bag throwing. They wrote good luck messages for the England ladies’ team and had a photo taken. Some were even lucky enough to have their photo taken with Katherine Brunt who is a bowler for the England team and has twice been nominated for England women’s cricketer of the year!

Have a lovely weekend!

Best wishes,

Miss Baxter, Miss Stone and Mr Tanner

Sports Day

We have thoroughly enjoyed our jam-packed Sports Day this week! Our Year 6 children participated in so many events: hurdles, javelin, discus, shot put, long jump, middle distance running, sprints, relays and long distance running! We really crammed in all the sports that the children have been practicing! We are very proud of all children.

We also wanted to give a little shout out to our Year 6 sports leaders – Rylan, Bella, Ella, David, Niko and Martha who all helped to organise the day and provide support to our younger pupils in the Year 3 and 4 Sports Day too. They were a real credit to our school and we are all very proud of them.

Here are some pictures of our day!

Best wishes,

Miss Baxter, Miss Stone and Mr Tanner

CIVIL RIGHTS

Before half term, we spent the week looking at Civil Rights. We discussed what Human Rights we are all entitled to spoke about which groups in history have been denied basic human rights with children recalling learning from previous years including slaves in Benin, women before the Suffragette movement and Jews during the Holocaust. In our new topic, we looked at Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Oliver Brown and the Selma to Montgomery marches.

We then linked this to our learning on our British Values.

Year 6 – KS2 SATS

WELL DONE!

We are so very proud of our Year 6 pupils for all of their hard work in the recent weeks. They have absolutely amazed us with their dedication, focus and determination. Each and everyday, we have found ourselves becoming prouder and prouder of them all.

Many children have developed really healthy home learning routines over the past few weeks, completing a little bit of revision each day. They have been communicating areas that they find difficult to their teachers and thinking about their learning in a really self-reflective manner.

Year 6, well done to you all. You have already made us so proud.

SATS BREAKFAST

Every day next week, we will be providing the children with a small SATS breakfast of toast and juice. Enjoying a healthy breakfast in school helps them to concentrate and do their very best and it also encourages them to socialise and relax before the tests start.

This will begin at 8:50am in their normal classrooms following registration.

10-a-Day and Wellbeing

We recognise that SATs week can be a daunting and challenging week for all pupils. We will, as always, support them with any worries or concerns they may have. Here’s a little reminder of the 10-a-day that we promote as a school. It is a list of helpful suggestions to do to keep us emotionally well.

Best wishes,

Miss Baxter, Miss Stone and Mr Tanner

Day 5

  • Post category:LB Year 6

Our time at Beam House has sadly come to an end but will never ever be forgotten!

We have had a magical time and are so very proud of all the children. They have all thrown themselves, whole-heartedly, into the activities and tried so many completely new things. From survival skills to fencing, from high ropes to street-surfing, the trip has enabled them to have a go at things that they really have never tried before. The trapeze jump, Challenge Course and high ropes were all firm favourites! The songs and chants that we have learnt were loved by the children and were even sung on the coach ride home. A rather poor rendition of our favourite – Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup – has also been sung in my house this evening..

Throughout the week, we have all heard smatterings of ‘I can’t believe I actually did that!’, ‘I’ve achieved a goal’ and ‘my parents won’t believe this…!’ It really has made us hugely proud; we hope that the children feel a strong sense of accomplishment!

Lost Property

We have been left with a rather enormous pile of lost property. This will be circulated around Year 6 on Monday so hopefully all T-shirts, shoes and water bottles will be returned to their rightful owners.

Thank You

I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the adults who came on the trip with us – Miss Stone, Mr Tanner, Miss Stuart, Mrs Bradford, Mrs Powell, Mrs Gresham, Mrs Glanville, Miss Woolner, Ms Willett, Mrs Neal and Mrs Bennet. Their constant encouragement, praise and sense of fun has really made it a special week.

To conclude the week, we leave you with a few of our absolute favourite photos from the week. We wish all the children a restful weekend – they’ll definitely need it!

Best wishes,

Miss Baxter
