Year 6 Welcome Meeting

The circus skills workshop run by Lucas Jet was incredible! We enjoyed a performance, by Lucas, in the morning and learned some circus skills in his workshop in the afternoon. It was a fantastic experience!

Thank you to all families who attended our Celebration Evening! It was great to see you. For those unable to come, here are some photos of our classroom...enjoy!

This week, the pupils have finished their ‘Dig for Victory’ posters. This art work links to our previous learning about World War Two! Don’t they look eye-catching!

This week, we have been writing explanation texts using our experiences at Hudnall Park as inspiration. We are really proud of our writing!

This week, in our Harvest Assembly, we sang ‘Cauliflowers Fluffy’. We hope you enjoy our singing! Happy Harvest and happy half-term everyone!

In RE this half-term, we have been learning about what the church is. This week, we have investigated the role of the church in the local community.

We had a fantastic time at Hudnall Park! The pupils enjoyed the opportunity to take part in problem solving, orienteering and shelter building activities! They all developed their teamwork skills-well done Year 6!

This week, we have made some super progress in Maths. We have been learning how to add and subtract whole and decimal numbers using a range of strategies. It has been great to see the pupils confidence develop over the sequence of lessons! Well done Year 6!

The camp-out experience was fantastic fun! The pupils took part in a range of activities which helped them to develop their teamwork skills. We also focussed on kindness and being inclusive! We had a super adventure!

As part of our new PSHCE unit 'Being me in my World', we set goals for the year ahead. We designed colourful bunting to inspire us to achieve our goals. We ensured that our goals were achievable and could be completed this academic year.

Thank you everyone who came to Open Evening this year! We really enjoyed showing off our work! As you can see, we have been very busy this year!

This week, we enjoyed a brilliant trip to the Hertfordshire Food and Farming Day! We learned about healthy eating, where our food comes from and how it is grown.

We had a fantastic time on Sports Day! Well done to the Foxes who won this year!

As part of our Science GOAL day, we took part in the Water-Aid challenge! We needed to move 10 litres of water over 50 metres using a box of everyday resources. We managed to keep 3 litres!

As part of our celebrations for the Queens’s Platinum Jubilee, we had a whole school picnic on the school field. We also learned about a Commonwealth country(South Africa) and investigated key events from the Queen’s 70 year reign!

We had a fantastic time during our Year 6 Camp-Out Experience! The children really enjoyed the trip to Ashridge and wholeheartedly embraced all the opportunities on offer. We created some fantastic memories!

We had a fantastic time at Harry Potter Studios! It was fantastic to be fully immersed in the wizarding world! The children really enjoyed their writing workshop where they learned about story writing and looked at play-scripts from the films!

Over the last two weeks, we have really enjoyed having the ducklings in school! The pupils watched as the eggs hatched and have helped to look after the ducklings. We held the ducklings and even watched them have a bath! This has been a fantastic experience and has been enjoyed by all!

In RE, we have been learning about how different religions express their faith through art.
