Autumn Term

What a great start to the new half-term we have had! We are learning all about The Victorians and it has been so much fun! We are also watching Oliver Twist in our English lessons and writing diary accounts of what life must have been like during the Victorian period for children. We can't wait for our Victorian Day, which is coming up in a few weeks. Our PE lessons have also been great, we have all be learning the skills we need to play football, through games and drills!  

Spring Term

So far this term we have been learning about North America! We have been reading legends and understanding the different features of a legend! In our geography sessions, we have been learning about the different states in North America, we have been comparing the landscape, climates and weather, to our own here in London! 


In our computing sessions, we are working groups to create a magazine about a topic of our choice, using Google Drive, so we can share our document and work collaboratively.


In Science we have been learning about Living things - specifically looking at classifying animals and plants! We recently looked at Microorganisms and have just started an experiment looking at mould and how it grows on bread! 

Summer Term

We have had a busy summer term in Year 6, revising for our SATs! The children did such a fantastic job during SATs week and we are immesely proud of them all for all their hard work and perserverance! It hasn't gone unnoticed!


We also completed our outdoor learning in March, which we haven't shared pictures from yet, so please find some below! The children had a fantastic time around the campfire!


After SATs we went across to the rec and had lots of fun playing games and running around to burn off all our energy! We also did a big dance-off - it was great fun! 


We have had a busy few final weeks of the half-term! Sadly we have been unable to complete our Shakshuka cooking due to the rain :( We are hoping to do it the first week back after half-term - we didn't fancy cooking in the the thunder and lightening we had! 


However, we did create our own Shakshuka recipes! We researched about Shakshuka and found out what it is and then we wrote up our recipes! We can't wait to try it :) 


We have also spent lots of time researching St Lucia, which was the country we chose as our Commonwealth country for Jubilee celebrations! Look out for pictures of us all dressed in Commonwealth colours!
