Welcome to our Year 6 class. For the first time, we have a class that only has Year 6 pupils in it.
On this page, we will add a selection of information of what goes on in our classroom.
You can earn house points for doing all of these.
Every point counts!
Our Year 5 and 6 children took part in 'A Play in a Day' which was sponsored by Veolia.
Below is a slideshow showing some of the children performing.
They worked hard throughout the day learning a script and performance techniques as well as information about 'The 3 Rs'. They also learned about how they can make a change and what might happen if the world's population doesn't act quickly.
The children performed in front of the school and passed on their very important message.
Reduce, reuse, recycle!

The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry
Publishers Weekly says:
In this breathtakingly beautiful picture book, Cherry combines illustrations that reveal a naturalist's reverence for beauty with a mythlike story that explains the ecological importance of saving the rain forests. The text is not a didactic treatise, but a simply told story about a man who falls asleep while chopping down a kapok tree. The forest's inhabitants--snakes, butterflies, a jaguar, and finally a child--each whisper in his ear about the terrible consequences of living in ``a world without trees'' or beauty, about the interconnectedness of all living things. When the man awakens and sees all the extraordinary creatures around him, he leaves his ax and ``walks out of the rain forest.'' A map showing the earth's endangered forests and the creatures that dwell within ends the book which, like the rain forests themselves, is ``wondrous and rare.''
