A new school year is upon us and we are already busy planning lots of exciting things for Year 6. Along with other KS2 classes, we have elected our school councillors and we wish them well as they work to make our school an even better place.
Our Ethos Group is due to have a busy year with a memory garden to take shape; a Tearfund harvest project to co-ordinate and commemorative work on the end of World War I to plan and organise.
As part of our D.T. work in school on puppets we need cardboard tubes (from kitchen roll, not toilet roll please) and we would like you to collect buttons as this forms part of our Remembrance commemorations this year.
Values and Heartsmart
This half-term's Christian value is love which links with the introduction of our new Heartsmart programme for collective worship and lessons in the classroom. The programme has half-termly themes and is designed to help us think about the well-being of ourselves and others with a Christian perspective.
Anne Frank Trust
We are pleased to say that we will be once again working alongside the Anne Frank Trust to educate our children about the Holocaust in the week beginning October 8th. Some will be trained as ambassadors and will be showing parents, staff and governors around an exhibition and explaining the details of what happened during World War II.
Work this half-term
Already we have begun on on animal-themed artwork with the children producing super pastel work in the style of Franz Marc. This links with our work in science. We are reading a selection of books by Michael Morpurgo, beginning with "The Mozart Question".
Trip to the Cathedral
Along with our friends in Year 5 we are going to the Anglican Cathedral on October 31st to find out about World War I and how this links to Christian values.
Year 6 pupils are allowed to bring mobile phones into school if they are travelling without parents/guardians to and from school. There is a permission letter to be filled in and the phone must be switched off an left in a designated place in the Year 6 classroom.
Our Piggy Bank is now open each Friday and we are saving up £1 each week to pay for a theatre trip to see the musical "Madagascar" in February and a post-SATs meal.
