Year 6 Scootathon
On Thursday 26th January 2017, Year 6 took part in their yearly fundraising Scootathon. Everyone had great fun scooting around the circuit on the front playground, to raise money for our link school in Kenya and for playground equipment to go on our back playground.
Great fun was had by all!
Author and actor Chris Connaughton visits Year 6.
Year 6 pupils were lucky enough to spend the day with local author and actor Chris Connaughton. He started the morning by sharing a short mystery story, but left us on a cliff hanger! We then had to write what we thought would happen next.
Chris spent time in each class giving his top tips and encouraging us. These continuations were then shared in classes and with the year group. Chris told us the actual ending to the story, many of us felt our versions were better than the real one!
To end the day Chris shared the last Sherlock Holmes story, this was then used in our English lessons as stimulus for our own mystery stories.
Year 6 PHSE Money Management Unit
As part of our PHSE unit of work on Money Management year 6 classes were set the challenge to create a design plan for a possible class Christmas party. Working in small groups they had to produce a timetable for the party, music list, games list and shopping list showing how they would spend their allocated budget of £16.00 in Sainsbury’s.
Once all of the plans were completed each group presented these to their class. These were voted on and the winning group from each class went shopping to Sainsbury’s in Ringwood with Mrs Marriott and Mrs Shering. We had great fun comparing prices in store to get the best bargains!
Following our shopping trip each group organised and ran their class party, all three year 6 classes had a fun afternoon.
Year 6 Open Afternoon
As part of our art topic we invited parents in to take part in designing and making clay tiles. These tiles were created in response to our visit to Southampton where we saw a large mural depicting images of Southampton. Our tiles have been designed with images of Ringwood and our surrounding area.
It was great to see so many parents and other family members coming into class to work alongside us and even make their own tile!
Year 6 visit to Southampton
Last week Year 6 pupils spent the day in Southampton studying a contrasting locality. The morning began with a visit to a Hindu temple, where pupils were able to observe a Hindu ceremony and learn all about Hinduism. This was a great link to our recent RE work on the concept of ‘God’.
Following this, pupils undertook a walk of the old part of Southampton and then had a boat tour of the docks. This will support their Geography and Art work back in school.
Hampshire Fire Safety Challenge Crew visit Year 6
On Thursday 15th September 2016 Year 6 had the pleasure of being visited by Hampshire Fire Safety Challenge Crew. They met with the whole year group to discuss general fire safety in the home. We watched some thought provoking films on this and considered how we could ensure we are safe at home.
