Autumn Term 2018
Language celebration!
25th September 2018
We are learning how to read and speak the French language in year 6. The children have already shown great enthusiasm and perseverance with learning new words and phrases. Très bien!
We have recently celebrated the other languages that many people in each class may have links to. Some children go home and speak a different language to English. Some children go on holiday and speak another language whilst they are they. Some children have family members who speak other languages. We celebrated and recognised the many different languages our pupils can speak and read, from everyone learning how to say a variety of common greetings to pupils bringing in items that they use to help them learn another language. A wonderful celebration of our diversity and talents!
School Council Elections
September 2018
This school year has started with a wonderful display of ambition shown by our new year 6 pupils who put themselves forward to be the School Council Representative for their class.
In each class we saw a fantastic variety of presentations on election day! The nominees put a great deal of effort into their posters/powerpoint presentations, which identified why they would do a super job at representing their peers. Each nominee spoke confidently about why they should be the person to take on the role. 
Well done to all of the children who put themselves forward - you would have all made brilliant representatives we are sure. Congratulations to the three children who have now been elected as the School Council Representative for their classes: Eloise, Gracie and Ruby.
Summer Term 2018
Christmas science
We have been learning about electricity this half term, and Mrs Pitt gave us an electrifying Christmas challenge!
We had to use our expert electricity knowledge to design and make a Christmas decoration. Our decorations could be any design we wanted, but they had to have elements that lit up and at least one moving part. As an extra challenge we had to try and use a parallel circuit so that one part of the decoration could be switched on and work while the others were switched off.
We worked really hard on our decorations and the end results were fantastic! Have a look at some pictures of our decorations in the gallery below.
