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 have already received your home learning pack to work through some of the work that we would have done in school. You don't have to do it all immediately, you've got plenty of time and never any excuse to be bored!
If you do a little bit of work from your Home Learning pack each day and keep yourself active and busy, having fun, that will help your brain to keep doing its exercise.
I will add some links for some of the activities that you might like or that will help you in the future. Look at the Home Learning links above.
Keep looking back here, I will add more activity ideas during your time off. If you want to do something that I haven't included, of course, please use your amazing creative mind and have a go.
If you want to share what you have done with me, or if you want to share it with the class, I can upload a photo or work onto here for you - send it to the email address below.
Remember, just because you are not in school does not mean that I can't help you - I want to help however I can with what ever you need help with.
My email address is:
If you need help to send an email, I'm sure your parents or someone with you can help.
Be good and look after yourself and the people that you are with,
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.''
