London Day 2

Another wet but even more wonderful day in London for the year 6 children. Today we have taken a river cruise along The Thames, completed the royal walk – including witnessing the changing of the guards – visited the fantastic attractions at The National History Museum, had our evening meal at The Rainforest Cafe before the children watched The Lion King at the theatre. The rain certainly didn’t deter the children, they have loved every minute of their second day! More photos to follow.

Yr6 homework due 24.06.19

Literacy the week beginning 24th June will be the completion of work based around journalistic writing. We are entering children’s work in to the Rotary Club competition as part of the Newport Show.

Can all Year 6 children research current news stories in local and national newspapers?

They need to have key facts that explore news stories that interest them, covering a range of topics: sport, environment, local issues, wildlife, agriculture, politics, fashion, music, arts or drama.

Children will be expected to create a whole front page, applying all newspaper report features and ensuring that they create an engaging front cover.

Children are only required to research stories as all written work will be completed in class.

London Day 1

A wonderful but wet first day in London. The rain certainly didn’t dampen the spirits! We walked over 500 steps up to the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral, visited the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London and walked along The Thames for a visit to the park. All of the children have been fantastic and have thoroughly loved their first day!

Y6 Photography Workshop

A reminder that any children who attended the Photography workshop last Tuesday are expected to bring their chosen photo to Mr Jones by Tuesday. This needs to be in an electronic format (USB/email) to be copied onto a school computer.

If you are unsure of how to do this please, please ask a member of staff.

Y6 homework

All Y6 children are expected to read and record their reading in their reading records.

Reading diaries are checked weekly and children are expected to read with an adult at least 3 times per week, plus read independently on a regular basis.

Please encourage your child to engage with reading!
