Class 6

Welcome to Year 6 and the start of a very busy year.  

 

During our first full week back, most of our children sat the 11+ test and in between those days we had a visit from the Heathrow Cargo Challenge.  Our visitors engaged well with the children and informed us about the types of jobs available at Heathrow airport, then set the children  some computer coding challenges and taught them how to pack an aircraft full of supplies.

 

We are now well underway with our own curriculum and enjoying looking at the way electrical circuits operate, how rivers flow between their source and mouth and new beginnings within PSHE - amongst others. 

 

As usual our Year 6 children take on more responsibilities across the school and within our classroom and we now have our new House Captains in place and they are starting to enjoy their roles.  

 

This term we are the first class in the school to go swimming and it is our first visit to the new pool in Slough - which we think is much better than the old one!  Techniques are improving and stamina is building amongst all the children.  We have a lovely time on Friday mornings.

 

Please keep up to date with all notifications to Year 6 via Parent Mail and our website and support your children to have their school work in on time and a full PE kit in school all week as sometimes PE times are changed due to the weather and different activities that we are undertaking.

Year Six - Homework

 

Last week, Year 6 were set a Bake Off homework to be brought into school today on Friday 13th December.  They were tasked to bake cup cakes - their choice of flavour and decoration.  The outcome was absolutely fabulous - we definitely have lots of Star Bakers in our class.  Cupcakes ranged from gingerbread with cinder toffee to marble cake with vanilla icing and many had a Christmas theme as decoration.

 

During the morning, each table tasted the cakes made by their peers and evaluated them under eight categories including flavour, sweetness and decoration.  Our winners were: 1st Noah Wylie, 2nd Sophia Bridge and 3rd Archie Oliver.

 

At the end of the day, Year 6 held a cake sale and raised a total of £135 (Thank you for your support).  These monies will go to help those less fortunate through the CAFOD World Gifts and the children have chosen to buy: a goat that gives - 12 pints of milk a week and free fertiliser; chirpy chickens - for eggs to eat and sell; water for a family and  essential materials to build a greenhouse and help a poor family put fresh, nutritious food on their dinner table every day.

 

Congratulation to all of Year 6.  I am very proud of you.
