Show Club…

Year 6 children lead and support the younger children in school during Show Club (one of our after school clubs led by our theatrical expert, Miss Hetherington. The children get to build their confidence, keep fit and have fun whilst learning dance routines and songs from famous musicals…

Art based on animals from the Amazon Rainforest…

It was a tale of 2 classes today in art. Mrs. Smith’s class were looking at proportion when sketching so used part of a picture to help us get the features of our animals in proportion. Mrs. Ellison’s class were experimenting with pastilles to create tone and texture on their animals. I’m sure you’ll agree the results from both classes were amazing!

Choosing our House Captains and Vice Captains…

Today was a very exciting day! Year 6 got to vote for the captains and vice captains for each of our 6 houses in school. Those who wanted to be considered gave a speech outlining the strengths and qualities they would bring to the role and then we had a secret vote so we didn’t influence each other’s choices. We are so proud of everyone who nominated themselves-some of the children really took themselves out of their comfort zones-well done all of you!
