Roles and Responsibilities - 2023

It has been a great start to the new school year with many of the Year 6 children taking on extra roles and responsibilities across the school. We are in the process of appointing Prefects, Art Leaders, House Captains, Radio DJs and Office Monitors and we look forward to working alongside them as they support the school within their new roles.


Year 6 Ancient Greek Day

Year 6 enjoyed a day of sports, DT and art for their Greek Day on 15th March.  Many of the children (and staff!) were dressed in ancient Greek costumes and looked amazing, it really added to the spirit of the day. 

They used ingredients inspired by Greece in their DT lessons to create delicious flat breads with salad and halloumi.  The children really enjoyed creating (and eating!) their dishes and many tried new foods they had not eaten before.


In Art, they spent their time creating clay pots inspired by Ancient Greek designs.  They worked hard to create different shaped pottery using both the pinch pot and coil pot technique and they then used slip and blending techniques to sculpt and form their pots and add additional details. Some children chose to carve in their own Greek-inspired patterns and designs, while others chose to wait and add this when their pots are dry and ready for painting.



In P.E, they competed as ancient Greeks in the Olympics, creating flags and banners for the opening ceremony and taking part in sports such as long-distance ‘marathon’ running, discus throwing and jumping activities. 


Everybody got stuck in with all of the activities, had fun and learnt a lot about life in Ancient Greece to finalise our history project.



Year 6 Southampton Trip

Year 6 travelled to Southampton as part of their current project. The focus was to learn more about the geography of the area, including how the docks work and the importance of it for the city and the wider area. The children used maps to identify whether the land use was historical, commercial or residential. They also conducted a survey with members of the public in order to find out the reasons they were visiting and their opinions on the importance of Southampton Docks. Year 6 will be producing a variety of data to represent the survey results after they have analysed the surveys. Everyone had a great time and we were fortunate enough to have great weather for the boat tour of the docks.
