Year 6

Activity Week Day One is done. Head down to the galleries to see some highlights.

Well done everyone, it's over and you should be very proud of yourselves!

 

If you fancy some breakfast before these test things, don't forget that you can join us in the room at the front of the school for toast and chat each morning. From 8 am on Monday, running all week (including a celebration session on Friday morning)

 

 

Well Done Mrs Humphrey's class who pipped Mr Cook's to the post in the spelling challenge. They rallied round superbly to snatch the title!

 

 

Two things of note  -  a) We extracted DNA from strawberries today and the pictures are in a gallery at the bottom of this page.

                                b) Mr Cook is leading the spelling challenge but his children can easily be caught - KEEP PRACTISING!

 

 

 

BIG NEWS! The annual Year 6 spelling contest has begun. Your children will be bringing home a list of spellings to learn. They will then go head to head ( or class to class ) in The Great Warstones Spell Off. If you could spend just a few minutes looking at them with your children, we would be most grateful. Mrs Humphrey's class were victorious last year and Mr Cook is keen to gain revenge.

Appointments to come and meet the Year 6 staff to discuss your child's progress will be available via the computer booking system as soon as you receive your texts. If you do not receive a text, please call in at the office to ensure we have your correct contact details. If you do not have internet access, please send in the slip at the bottom of the letter as soon as possible so that the office staff can get you booked in.

 

 

 

 

Welcome back to our fourth term. Over the next few weeks, we will be learning all about Charles Darwin and his theories on adaptation and evolution.

Parent Consultations will be occuring in 13th, 14th and 15th of March - a letter will follow nearer those dates.

 

 

 

Today (7.2.17) we made "Greek Beasties" using air-drying clay. Check out some of our creations in the gallery at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

 

It has come to our attention that some of our children are uploading videos to Youtube. To help them stay safe, please consider watching the following video that contains some helpful hints.

We look forward to welcoming our Greek athletes on Monday 16th January.

Athletes will need PE kits; judges will need to look their very best and our slaves need to look the part. Please bring the clothes in a carrier bag to get changed into after lunch.

 

 

On Thursday and Friday (12th-13th), we have created Powerpoints based on our research into Greek Gods. Please click on the links below to have a look at what we found out:

Year 6 residential - Kington

Where is Kington?

Kington is a small town in Herefordshire only 2 miles from the Welsh border - although we don't actually stay in Kington...

 

We stay just outside the town at Dunfield House - a large house with many bedrooms to suit all numbers and needs. See picture below.

You will certainly have no time to be bored as there is something to suit everyone: there is a football pitch, a volleyball court, a play park area with swings etc., a games room with a pool table and table tennis and even a small stream on site. In addition, there is a swimming pool and a campfire site at our disposal.

 

Make sure you come feeling ready for some exercise as a hill walk will be in place for everyone - it may seem hard but the views make it all worthwhile.

This is all rounded off with a trip to a local farm, a disco and much, much more.

 

Take a look at our Kington Gallery below to see some highlights from last year, soon to be updated with this year's trip in mid July.
