With only seven more school days before year six take their SATs they are working extremely hard in their booster sessions.
In our writing boosters year six have been covering a range of genres through the ghost hunting topic of S.P.O.O.C.S. This has included: explaining how a ghost capturing machine works, the pros and cons of ghost hunting, creating letters of application to be a ghost hunter and many more exciting tasks.
Well done for all of your hard work, it will all be worth it!

WOW what a busy time we are having in year 6. We are pleased to report that all the children are working really hard and certainly taking their SAT’s revision very seriously. It has been a whirlwind 2 weeks and with the SAT’s just 11 school days away we would like to thank all the members of staff who have come on board to run booster groups in their own time.
Of course its not all about the exams though and in the afternoon that children have been continuing to look at the topic of chocolate and the Aztecs. This week the children learned about Montezuma (the Aztec emperor) and wrote a report about his life and achievments.

We hope that you had a fantastic Easter break and are full of energy for the summer term. As I'm sure that you are aware, we have four more weeks to push ourselves until SATs week (w/c 13.5.13) and year six are continuing to challenge themselves to make progress in their booster sessions. Thank you for your ongoing support at home too.
Our topic this term is ... Chocolate! We are looking forward to learning about the origins of chocolate and finding out about the Aztecs.

This half term we have been learning about electricity in science and have been experimenting with various electrical equipment to make circuits. We've learnt the difference between series and parallel circuits and the factors that alter the strength of the buzzer sound and light bulb's brightness.
Next week we'll be doing our final set of mock SATs for reading and maths. We're looking forward to seeing how much progress you have all made since our last set of tests.

As part of our celebrations of Comic Relief the year five and six phase joined together this afternoon to tickle their funny bones! Each child was given the opportunity to become a stand-up comedian for 30 seconds in order to impress their peers and staff. It was an afternoon of fun, frolics and laughter. Michael McIntyre watch your back.

Yesterday year six enjoyed a visit from the animal woman. We met many interesting creatures including: a racoon, a snake and a skunk. We had the opportunity to hold and stroke these animals. The animal woman told us various insightful facts and we were able to ask her questions to find out more.

On the last day of half term year six enjoyed their own version of 'Australia Day'! Some of the activities that we took part in were: making ANZAC biscuits, creating a Bush Tucker Trial and learning Australian slang. Miss Noble's amazing Australian accent also added to the fun of the day.

Our topic this term is Australia, so far we have enjoyed learning about how enormous this interesting country is. To do this we measured the distance around the school grounds and worked out how long it would take us to walk from one side of Australia to the other. We were shocked by how vast Australia is.

Welcome back! We hope that you had a fantastic break and are well rested ready to start the spring term. Thank you very much for all of the generous Christmas presents, we were delighted with our gifts.
This week we have started our boosters in our new groups for reading, writing and maths and have been very impressed with the children's attitudes towards their work.
We have also been enjoying friendship week, considering how important it is to be a good friend.
