What a year!

By Whitebeam, in Year 6 - Thursday, 22 July 2021

It's been an incredible year filled with many happy memories and one which none of us will forget. Mrs Jeffries and Mrs Whitehair have loved teaching this wonderful group of children and wish them all many successes and happiness throughout their lives. Enjoy your summer Whitebeam!

Water Fight!

By Year 6, in Year 6 - Tuesday, 20 July 2021

What a day! After Sports Day, Year 6 had great fun drenching each other in a water fight. Chaos ensued as we took great delight in soaking everyone. We especially loved targeting the participating adults! It was a lovely way to refresh and cool off in the heatwave and we all plodded back to class, soaked and dripping, with huge smiles on our faces!

Year 6 Sports Day!

By Year 6, in Year 6 - Tuesday, 20 July 2021

This morning, we were given the opportunity to demonstrate our teamwork, positive sporting attitudes, talent and skill in the Year 6 Sports Day! Divided into our house teams, we cheered each other on as we participated in a sprinting race and a skipping race. Then we moved onto discus (which we were first introduced to on our Greek WOW day earlier in the year) before finishing with a nostalgic egg and spoon relay race! Everyone had a great time.

Big Camp Day 2

By Year 6, in Year 6 - Monday, 19 July 2021

On the second day of camp, we enjoyed a range of activities: we learnt vital First Aid skills; played team building games; learnt how to make a fire and how to throw a spear. The spear throwing seemed to be the most popular activity! We ensured that we had plenty of rest and water in the shade while enjoying a hearty lunch! Despite some of us being very tired due to having very little sleep, we had a great time and made lots of happy memories!

Fun at the Lakes

By Year 6, in Year 6 - Monday, 19 July 2021

It's hard work for year 6 today! We're having a great time at the Lakes in the glorious sunshine. It's such fun having time to play together and chat with our friends. This is exactly what we have missed over the last strange 15 months. 

Fun at the big camp!

By Year 6 campers, in Year 6 - Saturday, 17 July 2021

Tents are finally up, dinner has been eaten, lots of playing and much laughter so far. Just having hot chocolate around the campfire and giggling. 

Open air Art gallery

By Whitebeam, in Year 6 - Thursday, 15 July 2021

We had great fun drawing animals today in Art. We were given one half of the animal's face and had to replicate it on the other side. It was important that we noted details and used our pencil skills to show texture. They were so impressive that we decided that we wanted to share them with children around the school. In order to allow this to happen in a safe way, we displayed our work on the path outside our classroom and had a pavement gallery. Children in other year groups were able to view our creations on their way to lunch and it was super to hear their kind comments!

Maths brain dump!

By Whitebeam, in Year 6 - Wednesday, 14 July 2021

Today in maths, we reflected on the units of learning we have completed over the course of the year. We 'dumped' the information from our heads onto a grafitti poster in teams and amazed Mrs Jeffries with our impressive memory skills. There were detailed diagrams, written explanations, example questions and success criteria steps to show our understanding of a multitude of maths topics. The children were getting so carried away with it they didn't want to stop! Fantastic learning all round!
