We are 28 full of life individuals that are a wonderful team. We use our REACH values to help us to make good choices and always strive to be the very best version of ourselves. Our motto is try everything, believe you can and you will and perseverance is succeeding.
Our topic is Volcanoes, zones and earthquakes. We are learning all about the geography and science of this topic and combining it with music, art and even our Forest Schools sessions.
18/10/18 Today was the last of our Forest School sessions. To celebrate we made a fire, toasted marshmellows and climbed trees. Thank you to Deven for bringing the extra chocolate spread for everyone to share. It is official that Sarah is the best marshmellow toaster in the class and Callum was the slowest. It didn't matter how well or how quickly they were toasted. They still tasted amazing! Thank you Miss Barratt.

Homework in Y6 is used as a stepping stone for what can be expected at secondary school. It is important that diaries are used on a daily basis, that homework is recorded in them and that they are signed by an adult at home on a weekly basis.
At least one piece of homework is given out each week. This may be in the form of e-homework (mymaths, SPAG.com, TT Rock Stars etc) or it may be paper based. When paper based it needs to be completed in the homework book. The presentation and organisation expectations for work in this book are also set out in this book. Pupils hand homework back within a week of it being set.
Remember: To be the best version of ourselves we give our all to everything.
