SATs Results 2018

We would like to celebrate the excellent effort made by all of our children in Year 6 and staff for the good results in this year’s Key Stage 2 SATs.  We are really pleased with the outcomes and, although there is still work to do, we are confident that this demonstrates the strides forwards that the school has made this year.

 

 

Physics roadshow!

This morning, Year 6 had an exciting visit from pupils at local secondary schools who run a physics roadshow. They explained lots about how different things in the world work and showed us some really cool experiments. The children particularly enjoyed the giant balloons (representing molecules) and the fog machine. A really fun morning!!!

 

Year 6 Production

Due to the once in a lifetime appearance of England in the semi-finals of the World Cup this Wednesday and Little Mix performing in Northampton on the following day, it has been decided to move the Year 6 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Tuesday 17th July at 6pm.  the Leavers’ Disco will be rescheduled for Thursday 19th July.  Many apologies for any inconvenience caused, but we feel that this is the best solution for all involved.

Luscious Lollipops

Year 6 have been studying the work of an artist called Sarah Graham. She paints images of confectionery, which the children find very inspiring. Here are some examples of their work so far.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: SAFETY AND DANGER

Having looked at the story of Noah last week, today we reflected on how God protected Noah, his family and the animals from danger.  We then considered issues that pose a risk to humans and animals in 2018.  Sometimes dangers come from natural disasters, sometimes from other people and perhaps even from ourselves and our own choices.  We each chose an area that interested us, researched it and presented our findings using Google Slides on the Chromebooks.

Statistics!

The children in Year 6 have continued their hard work after SATS with statistics work in maths. Some of the problems have been quite challenging, however we have been very resilient! Keep up the good work Year 6 🙂

 

Pie Charts

Year 6 have been learning about the different parts of a circle this week. They have also been reading and interpreting pie charts.

Sketchbooks

This week, we have been researching different periods of art and presenting our work in sketchbooks. The children have really enjoyed doing this as they have independence and creativity on how they present it. Here are some examples of the fantastic work that has been produced so far.

 

Cricket

Well done to the boys Year 6 and girls Years 5 and 6 cricket teams. The boys came 4th and the girls came 2nd. Excellent play and teamwork all round!
