Beginning of £5 Grow in year 6!

This week has seen the start of the £5 Grow project that the year 6 children complete post-SATs.

They have begun to identify skills identified in a leader, what qualities they see within themselves and how they want to approach the project. The children will soon be getting into groups and thinking about what items they plan on making to sell to the rest of the school in the next few weeks.

National cakes in year 6!

Continuing the exciting tasks the children have been completing in non-Grangewaters week, the children worked in groups to create Meadopolis’ national cakes to be sold at the end of the week to the rival country! The children enjoyed this task and continue to work well as a team!

Non-Grangewaters week in year 6!

This week, the children have been working as part of a team called ‘Meadopolis’ – a rival country to the ‘Isle of Lawford’ (year 5 children). They have enjoyed creating speeches to persuade voters to choose them to lead the country, completing passports that they need to use to exit the classroom, producing a ‘national anthem’ and spending time putting together a performance for our year 2 children explaining how the rivalry began….

The children are really enjoying the week and have demonstrated all our school values so far. Keep it up!!!

Congratulations to year 6!!!

Today marks the end of a tiring week for year 6 children. I must say I am extremely proud of their resilience, determination and focus they have shown during a stressful week! The children tried their best and I know they could not have given more if they had tried! Well done, year 6! I hope you enjoy the rest of your final term as primary school children! Next up… production!!!

An artistic afternoon in year 6!

During a hectic week in year 6, the children have been continuing their topic ‘Blood Heart’ with the opportunity to create a heart out of clay! The children included arteries and veins while ensuring they use specific at skills to ensure their product would not break.

A relaxing afternoon in year 6 🙂

Week 2 of raising chicks in year 6

This week Redwood, the chicks have continued to grow. Their wings have begun to develop and they are adapting to their surroundings. Not only this, children from other year groups are enjoying visiting the chicks and spending time stroking and watching them in their artificial environment.
