Mental Health Week!


As part of the mental health week year 6 children have been going out each morning and being active for 10 minutes. Children have felt more energised and ready to start the day. The children in Year 6 have had some fantastic conversations about Mental health and how it can effect people.


Children have also made a display of a portrait of themselves filled with lots of different words that describe themselves.

Children have been using fun and practical games to bring maths to life. Children have been using treasure hunts to find clues to answer different word problems. This has helped with children being active and doing maths in a different way!

Maths of the day!

Children In Need!


Year 6 had great fun raising money for Children in Need. The class raised £69- which was fantastic! The children showed some excellent dance moves in the Danceathon and especially loved dancing to Baby Shark!

What a great day! Well Done year 6!


Fruity Friday 

Year 6 sports crew are working really hard to ensure Fruity Friday is working well. Each week we are making about £25- which is fantastic! The sports crew have been really enthusiastic about it and are eager to come in on a Friday to help set it up. They also pay a vital role in counting the money.

End of Half Term Celebrations  

As part of the year 6's Golden Learning they decided to start their enterprise projects. This project was based around Halloween. All children worked incredibly hard creating their stalls and games. Each group came up with a different game to engage all the other year groups.

They managed to raise £133 - which was amazing! We will be donating half of our profit to Billy's Wish and the other half will go towards the year 6 trip!


More photos will be added soon!
