Monday 11th July- Friday 15th July

On Thursday, some children enjoyed a trip to Manchester United stadium where they got to tour the museum and stadium, create a Manchester United fantasy football team, try on football kits of players and play on the Apollo pitch.

We also celebrated 'The Arts' this week, the children produced Manga inspired buildings with the artist Paul Pickford and took part in a whole school sing off.

Monday 4th July - Friday 8th July

Lots going on in year 6 this week, including visits to secondary schools. Good luck 6ET for your transition days to your new schools!


We have written letters to the year 2s moving up to the junior school in September, telling them all about how WONDERFUL and EXCITING it is here!

We also continued with our learning in history about the Ancient Greeks. This week we learnt the story of The Trojan War and acted it out using freeze frames...

Monday 27th June- Friday 1st July

In 6ET this week, we have been rehearsing for our end of year production - the stage is up and we are busy learning lines! 

We have also been inspired by Harry Potter (the book we are currently reading). We designed our very own versions of a magical game, even better than quidditch! Check out the models we made of our wizard games...

Monday 20th June- Friday 24th June

This week the children have impressed us with their continued enthusiasm towards their learning about the Ancient Greeks.  We have continued to read Harry Potter, design our own broomsticks and the children even took part in a real 'Sorting Hat' activity.

On Wednesday, the BBC came and shared a story with years 5 and 6.  The focus of the stories were growth mindset, positive thinking and visualisation.

Monday 13th June - Friday 17th June

A super week back after the half term break. The children have really impressed us with their fantastic learner attitudes.


We were visited by the 'Mad Scientists' where they taught us about inventions and discoveries.

In science, the children completed four mini experiments: Bendy Pencil; Can light bend?; Is light white? and Pouring light.  From the results of the experiments, the children learnt about the reflection and refraction of light.

We also shared our Home Learning Challenges all about geography and fieldwork. The new knowledge we all gained by sharing what we had been up to was impressive.
