And preparing for our leavers celebrations!
Please watch out for letters sent home with your children containing more information about these important dates over the next few weeks.
Well done Year 6 for making such a great start to the summer term.

Year 6 had a fantastic day exploring the amazing artefacts at the British Museum. Many treasures were explored and mysteries unraveled.
One of the many highlights of our trip was finding a vase depicting Hercules performing his tasks. We had a booklet to complete about Hercules and his tasks; it was a squeeze fitting us all around the display.
Asking questions and making connections was a necessary skill we learnt- we had a great debate around who we thought the urn belonged to, helping us to develop our questioning and reasoning skills.
After a hard morning, a well deserved lunch at the park was greatly appreciated. The weather was a bonus, with no rain in sight!
Hercules the man- what a task????
Who does that belong to?
A well deserved lunch.
Year 6 had a fantastic time learning to ice skate at Canary Wharf Ice Rink. At first the children were slipping and sliding all over the place and spent a lot of time on their bottoms rather than on the ice! However, with great perseverance and courage they found their confidence. It was brilliant fun and a great break from all the hard work the children have been doing in preparation for their SATs.
Last week we travelled back 1400 years to the days of the Silk Route. We created a large world map in the hall, added water and land passages and visited far away lands in search of exciting new goods to bring home! I was especially impressed with the children’s bartering skills as they discussed how many bottles of perfume they would be willing to exchange for an ostrich! Fun and learning were a-plenty.
Snow drifts and icy landscapes have coloured the start of the Spring term in Year 6, as we have been transported to Norway in our shared Key Stage 2 text; “East o’ the Sun, West o’ the Moon”. The children have already made an excellent start retelling this complex story. Why not ask them to tell it to you at home?
