Year 6Miss Goldsmith, Mrs Donkin and Mrs Plant.
Hello and welcome to class 6!
It’s all go in Year 6 this term! We have so much to pack into such a short space of time! Take a look at some of our exciting plans.
This term, we are lucky enough to be visiting London. We plan on taking in all of the sights of our fabulous Capital City including Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. We’re even going to try out the London Eye!
Our topic for the Spring term is South America; there’s so much to learn about including the unique plants and animals of the Amazon rainforest and the perils of climbing the Andes.
Year 6 love to take part in sport; we have a dance coach coming into school to take lessons this term. In addition, we look forward to taking part in numerous sporting competitions including football and hockey.
Year 6 have worked so hard this week completing their SAT’S. We had a party today to celebrate. Check out our party pictures!
Years 5 and 6 had an amazing time this week at Cinderella. Take a look at some of our photographs!
On 2nd December, Key Stage 2 went to the Gala Theatre in Durham to see Cinderella. It was really funny – why not ask the children and staff which was their favourite part?
We have been working on our team skills in PE, improving our communication skills as well as our spacial awareness. We are bench ball specialists!
Our school enjoyed an anti-bullying performance today called The B Word. We found out about different types of bullying and how to look after ourselves and each other!
Class 6 took part in ‘Bible Comes Alive’ at our local church. Jean and the members of the Independent Methodist Church told us all about the life of Jesus and acted out important parts of his life for us. We enjoyed listening to their stories and finished off with a quiz, a song and juice and biscuits.
A group of year 5 and 6 children joined the community today for a Remembrance Service at Easington Lane Access Point led by Jean Merton. The children planted crosses in the garden of Remembrance and observed the two minutes silence at eleven o’clock.
Year 5 had a visit from Zoolab this week. Have a look at some of the unusual creatures we got to see!
Some of the members of our school council went to Hetton School this week to take part in the annual Anti Bullying Conference. Take a look at our pictures!
We had an amazing day in London yesterday! Have a look at some of our photographs!
Enjoying our tea at the Rainforest Cafe in London. We’re all now happily full and on the train on our way home 🙂
We have been working on plotting co-ordinates over 4 quadrants this week and enjoyed using the Internet to play co-ordinate games to improve our skills. Sam was the Billy Bug champion – 10 feeds in 1 minute 11 seconds! Well done Sam 🙂
