On Friday 16th November, as part of Anti-Bullying Week, Year 6 had the opportunity to learn a Play in a Day with Jonny from Konlux Theatre! The play explored personal data, internet trolls, social media, cyber bullying and online gaming. They then performed the play to parents, carers and KS2. The class thoroughly enjoyed themselves and stepped up to the challenge!

On Thursday 8th November, each class spent the day marking 100 years since the end of World War 1 by undertaking a range of focussed activities!

Year 6 discussed and recorded their answers to the question: Should we remember wars and conflict? They then went on to create their own propaganda posters – encouraging men to join the British Army – after analysing a range of original WW1 posters!

Champions! Again! (We’re going to need a bigger trophy cabinet!) Congratulations to our Year 6 Frisbee team for winning the Sports UK Ultimate Frisbee Tournament!


On Monday the 15th October, the school celebrated and explored Harvest Festival as part of an RE Subject Day. In Maths, Year 6 tackled a range of word problems and challenge cards which required a range of strategies and calculations to answer them. For English, they explored the question ‘Should we celebrate Harvest Festival?’ – discussing the theme, and then writing and explain their answers whilst also providing examples to back up their arguments. In RE, they created ‘gratitude’ poems.
