Welcome back to the new year.
This school year we have three classes in the Upper Juniors: Mrs Kilgore with Owls, Miss Harding with Merlins and Mrs Kolbucaj with Kestrels. We will be supported by Mrs Elliott (Year 5), Mrs Simmonds and Mrs McCarthy (Year 6).
We are looking forward to another fantastic year with lots to look forward to. Please follow our learning journey by scrolling down the page as we share our topics with you.
You can also access the individual class pages by clicking on the class page links at the top of the page.
Our first topic this year is:
We made DNA using strawberry cables and midget gems. Take a look!
Did you know we share 51% of our DNA with a banana and 99.9% with each other?
Our new topic this half-term is Invaders.
This half-term we are reading 'The Midnight Fox' by Betsy Byars.
Young Enterprise Day in Year 6.
We were delighted to be joined in school today by Samantha, Gail and Ricci from SAMEE (support and Mentoring Enabling Entrepreneurship) as well as Lea from Soverign Housing, who kindly sponsored this opportunity.
The children worked in mixed class teams of 6 and 7 and experienced a 'Hotel Skills Day'.
The groups had to work as efficient teams and consider the following:
The children were provided with the opportunity to create and taste their hotel's unique non-alcoholic cocktail as well as decide, which of their teachers - Mrs Harding or Mrs Kolbucaj would make the best hotel manager through probing interview questions.
We all had a fantastic day, thank you Sam, Gail and Ricci for the hard work and effort you put in. Thank you also to Lea for sponsoring the day.
