Leavers’ Hoodies - 9th July 2021

Year 6 love their Leavers' Hoodies which they received last week - we know that they have been disappointed not to get to their new high schools for their transition days but they've enjoyed the extra time with us!

Camping Adventure - 2nd July 2021

Children in Year 6 had their very own camping adventure last night on our school field. They took part in lots of different activities and also enjoyed a fabulous barbeque laid on by our kitchen team. It was a fantastic experience for everyone involved!

Religious Beliefs - 24th May 2021

This term, children in Year 6 are finding answers to the question, 'Why do some people believe in God and some people don't?' To support their learning, they interviewed staff in school about their beliefs. The children asked insightful questions and found it very interesting to compare different religions and the beliefs of non-believers too. 

African Kente Cloth - 7th May 2021

This half term Year 6 are looking at textiles as part of their art topic. The children have been working hard to recreate the traditional African Kente cloth by weaving card and using geometric shapes to create an eye-catching design. One of our children brought in a piece of her mother's clothing made in Ghana to help inspire our work. Her mum hasn't even worn it yet! 

Captain Sir Tom Moore 101 Challenge - 30th April 2021

Year 6 enjoyed taking part in their Daily Mile as part of the 101 Challenge commemorating the life of Captain Sir Tom Moore on the day that would have been his 101st birthday!

African Mask-Making - 12th April 2021

Year 6 spent the afternoon learning about the cultural importance of masks in Africa and then made their own versions to kick off this term's learning which is based around the novel, Refugee Boy by Benjamin Zephaniah.

Fossil Making - 26th March 2021

Children in Year 6 enjoyed rounding off this term's learning by making their own fossils!

A Focus on Eyes - 18th March 2021

Look at this amazing artwork produced by our Year 6 pupils!

World Book Day - 4th March 2021

We all enjoyed dressing up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day!

Fun in the Snow - 25th January 2021

The children who have been in school today have enjoyed getting outside to play in the snow.

To round off their learning from this term, Year 6 are having a Victorian Christmas. They started the day by treating us all to some carols at our doorsteps.

Women into STEAM - 5th November 2020

Year 6 girls have been learning about the STEAM subjects today (STEAM = science, technology, engineering, art and maths) with a remote learning opportunity from the University of Northampton. The girls were particularly excited when one of their online questions was answered by a female fire fighter. We hope we have developed aspirations for the future!

Coding - 19th October 2020

Year 6 have been practising their coding skills using a programme to draw in the screen with real precision. We love this stick man!

Fire at the Mill - 21st September 2020

To support children with developing their writing skills, we use Pie Corbett's Talk 4 Writing process throughout the school. This involves children learning a story, including actions, which they can then use to support their own independent writing. We hope you like the story that children in Year 6 have been learning.

Victorian Day - 16th September 2020

It was Victorian Day in Year 6 today and we were so impressed with the efforts that everyone has gone to with their costumes and the way they got into the spirit of the day. They're already used to sitting in rows but working with slate proved tricky and those teachers were very stern!!
