Friday 14th September 2018

Welcome to Year 6!

The children and staff have had a fab first week and a half, with everyone rising to the new challenges of year 6.

All the staff have been over the moon with the huge efforts the children are making in all areas of the curriculum and the enthusiasm they are showing for the current and up and coming topics.

Our topic for the first half of the autumn term is the life and work of Charles Darwin.  Through our science lessons we will be exploring animals in their habitats and how animals have evolved to adapt to their environment.

Today the children enjoyed their first yoga class with Shelley.  They were all a little apprehensive but quickly got stuck in and came out of the lesson full of excitement and looking forward to next weeks class.  Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school next Friday in order to take part.

We have a class trip coming up on Tuesday 25th September to the Life Centre in Newcastle.  Please make sure your child returns their permission slip to take part in the visit.

I’m sure you’ll have all heard the news of the planned Year 6 trip to London at the end of the year!  At the moment we don’t have any firm dates or bookings, but we’ll keep you posted with details as we get them.  In the meantime, the children and staff in year 6 will be planning fund raising events to help meet some of the costs.

 

 

 

Our Star of the Week was Bailey for his outstanding contributions to science lessons.

Nathan and Hudson were added to the Golden Book for making a huge effort in every part of the school day.

The children received their first homework and spellings today.  children should complete and return their homework by Wednesday morning.  The children will take part in a spelling test on Thursday morning.

We hope all the children have an amazing, well deserved weekend.
