Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of junior school! A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! 
In Year 6, the children will be expected to work hard but in return, they will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships 
and an increased confidence to take them onto their next adventure.


November 2017


As part of our SMSC lessons, we have been learning about our School's Core Values; British Values; Democracy and the Cabinet, and the Suffragettes.  Our local MP John Baron, came in to talk to the children about the Cabinet.  The children asked some thoughtful questions, not only about his role as an MP but about issues affecting world and our local community.  John said, "It was a very good meeting with lots of good questions from children who were obviously interested in politics. Congratulations to all concerned, and to those who organised my visit.”

The Battle of Marathon


Have you ever wondered why a marathon is 26 miles long?  As​ part of our Ancient Greek topic, we learnt about The Battle of Marathon.  According to legends, the first marathon commemorated the run of the soldier Pheidippides from a battlefield near the town of Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C.  In groups, we wrote a rap to tell the story and performed it to the rest of the class.

Digestive System

During science, we have been learning about the digestive system.  The children squirmed in their seats as we carried out a simulation.
Joel said, “When the intestines were squeezed, it was disgusting but very factual.”
Alfie said, “It was brought to life because the poop looked real!”

Kingswood Activity Week


This term, a very excited year 6 travelled to Kingswood Activity Centre, in Cromer.  Over the course of the week, 
the children took part in numerous activities including abseiling, archery, fencing and zip-wire.   Not only did it provide activities that 
children may never have the opportunity to experience, but it helped them to grow into more confident and courageous individuals, 
improving team-work, self-confidence and motivation.  We had an absolutely amazing week!     


          


 


 

   

    

    


    

       

            

Ancient Greeks

As part of our topic this half-term, the children became archaeologists! 
Carefully uncovering the Ancient Greek remains in their excavation pits, the children had to find all the pieces and put them together 
(a bit like a jig-saw). The children then compared the objects and provided justifiable reasoning to support their predictions.
