Year 6 – 28/04/17

Year 6 have been continuing to work hard preparing for their SAT in May. This week Year 6 have looked at the post-Resurrection story of Doubting Thomas. Children were hot-seated to help them to empathise with Thomas when he needed to see the wounds of Jesus in order to believe that He had indeed risen.


Following last term’s Past Pupil day interview, the children wrote reports about the interview that was conducted with Mrs O’Keeffe. Some of these have been put on the Y5/6 board in the hall.

The children created some beautiful pieces of watercolour art today, on the theme of New Life. These will be completed next week. Here are some pieces of work in progress:

For Golden Time this week, Year 6 had the chance to share Reception’s new outdoor learning area. It’s a fantastic space and as usual it was a joy to watch the Year 6s interact so nicely and responsibly with their young buddies.

Once again, the Science Club and Geology Club were leading hands-on sessions with children from the younger years. I have seen the planning and preparation that goes into the sessions, and it is fantastic to see such effort being put in.
