Welcome to Year 6
We wish you a warm welcome to Year 6, where our focus is on preparing our children for their future learning journey. We strongly believe in equipping our students with a ‘growth mind-set’, encouraging them to face all new challenges with an open mind and perseverance.
Year 6 is a special year for many reasons. We have a busy and exciting programme of events throughout the year, including our residential trip; some science lessons with a nearby secondary school; leading roles in our Harvest Festival and Christmas service and a performance worthy of a West-End stage in July. We develop our learning through a range of exciting topics, and we thrive on challenges and work hard to develop our reasoning skills. We embrace all learning opportunities and prepare diligently for the Year 6 assessments in May.
The teaching team of Mrs Farr and Mrs Haffenden welcome any questions or inquiries that you may have; please feel free to contact Suzanne Farr via email or the school office.
We have arrived safe and sound and settled into our rooms. Dinner was brilliant, lots of choice and ice-cream for pudding. Our team leader is helping us to find our way around and the children are off for a fantastic sing-a-long around the campfire tonight.
We’ve all had an amazing day today. There has been abseiling, raft building, sensory challenges, Jacobs ladder, zip wire and more. Everyone has tried their best, supported each other and really impressed us - and all on very little sleep!!
The day started with bacon and hash browns and lots of well rested children. We’ve had another exciting day with lots of ‘stand-out’ moments and some true acts of courage and kindness. All the group leaders are commenting on the fantastic behaviour of our children and are impressed by how they support each other. One group went on the giant swing today, another went abseiling and we all played robot wars after dinner.
Today, Archie brought his two pet snakes in to see us! He told us all about how he looks after them, about the specific species and he let volunteers hold them. Thanks Archie.
In other news, Year 6 won the rounders match against the staff yesterday - a fantastic achievement as they are the first class to ever win! It was lovely to see our old pupils return to see us too. They had some useful tips for our Year 6 pupils and were able to reassure them about their upcoming Secondary Schools.
