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.
