Weekly Review: 

Another amazing week in Year 6.

The children have written some fantastic speeches based on our English text – Letters from the Lighthouse: “May You Never Know What it’s Like to be a Refugee”. The children wrote passionate and emotive speeches which were superb! In Maths children have been exploring angles and shape and in D+T the children have designed and made Anderson Shelters. We also had a visit from Rhodri and Maggie – linked to St Peter’s Baptist Church – who led a workshop on the Easter story.

Next Term:

Bs and Gs have swimming and PE on Mondays. Please can they wear PE Kit to school and bring their swimming kit with the.

On Wednesday 19th April RNLI coastguards will lead a talk to Year 6 about water safety.

PSHE will be our afternoon curriculum subject that week – please refer to the Personal development blog for more information.

Have a super Easter Year 6 – we look forward to seeing you in Term 5!
