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.

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.
