Year 6 visited Canterbury Cathedral on Wednesday. We had the opportunity to reflect and pray. There were workshop activities such as: stone masonry, charters, stained glass windows, sculpture, music and book making.
Mrs Liddell and a group of children created a wonderful banner which we walked through the Cathedral as part of a procession.
Some children read out prayers to the congregation. They did a great job!
Last term Year 6 learnt some different Tudor Dances. This enabled us to link our topic and PE lessons. We learnt how to do a Tudor Farandole – this was great fun:
Then we learnt the Horses Branle (this was a little more tricky as we had to remember the steps!)
Then we had a go at creating our own versions of the Horse Branle.
We look forward to showing these to you at a Tudor event we are planning for this term.
Please see below our Topic Overview for the first part of the term. We will update this in a few weeks when we change from Tudors to WW2.
Year 6 had great fun learning some new routines!
This week’s Star of the Week is Lexxi. Lexxi was nominated by Mrs Liddell for her positive attitude towards her reading. Well done!
You can access additional reading and spelling resources on the Oxford Owl page.
Well done to Kai for some excellent maths work this week.
Here are a few photos from our residential. A CD with a variety of photos will be provided later in the year.
Natacha – ‘It was really good, even though it was a 3 hour journey. The activities were really fun.’
Bronwyn – ‘Bushcraft was one of the best experiences of my life because it taught me first aid and things that I didn’t already know. It was really interesting.’
Mollie C – ‘Bushcraft was a really good trip. I enjoyed the games and making a den for ‘Wrap Man’ The worst bit was when we watched the lady cut open a Salmon and when five children fish eyeballs.’
Archie – ‘Bushcraft was really good’.
Morgan – ‘Bushcraft was really fun because we had lots of fun. My favourite part was the first aid sessions and rescuing the teachers.’
George G – ‘Bushcraft was a blast! I found it super fun and it was definitely worth it. I enjoyed learning how to use a knife to make a tent peg.’
Ellie – May – ‘Bushcraft was good because it helped us to become independent and responsible for chores that our parents usually do.’
