CSI Elfrida Style

Year 6 became investigators for the morning.


The year 6 children were presented with an accident scene.  They had to listen to witness statements, look for clues and question key witnesses in order to find out how a 12 year old was run over and killed whilst using a zebra crossing.

Year 6's Royalty


In celebration of Her Majesty's 90th birthday, Elfrida enjoyed a day of festivities.

As part of our ancient Egyptian topic, this week, the children got the chance to use their imaginations to try to imagine how Howard Carter (the British archaeologist who discovered Tutankhamun's tomb) would have felt when entering the tomb for the very first time.  We created a 'tomb' in class for the children to crawl into.  They could only be inside for 10 seconds as any longer they would be in danger of suffering from potential poisonous gases!  The children worked in teams of 4 or five to try to draw the treasures they found inside.  Fun was had by all.

Year 6's Tomb Experience

Year 6 SAT are over!!


After all the children's hard work during SATs week, on the Friday we spent some time enjoying the sunshine in the playground.  The children had fun playing games and being creative.

Post SATs Play

What Year 6 will be learning about this term

Year 6 SATs


As you know, the children have been working really hard in preparation for the SATs tests.

Not much longer to go now: SATs will take place the week beginning 9th May 2016.

Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and goes to sleep early during SATs week.  It is extremely important that all children come to school and arrive early.  We will be running a free

breakfast club from Monday 9th to Thursday 12th May for all year 6 children.

Walk like an Egyptian

This term as our topic is Ancient Egypt, the children will be learning how to walk (dance) like an Egyptian.



This term we are linking our topic with PE and the children are learning the ancient Maori war dance which now is a custom for the All Blacks (New Zealand ruby team) to perform at the beginning of their rugby matches.  The ideas is to intimidate their opponents.  The children are working on developing their threatening facial expressions.  Ask your child to show you theirs.



Volunteer Readers


Do you have some spare time and like to help listen to some children read?



We feel it is vitally important for all our children to be confident, fluent readers and, more importantly, to enjoy reading and read for pleasure.


If you could spare us up to 30 minutes of your time, any day of the week between 8:45 - 9:20 and/or 2:45 - 3:20 (Mon - Thurs)  2:00 - 2:25 (Fri) to read with some year 6 children, please speak to any member of the year 6 team as soon as possible.


Thank you very much for your support.


Thanks and kindest regards

Mrs Efrat, Miss Fitch, Mrs Lawson and Miss K

This term our topic is Global Citizenship and Responsibilities.  In literacy, we have just been learning about Rudyard Kipling's 'Just So' stories - watch this space for some of the children's own 'Just So' stories.
