What we have been doing this week.
Week Ending 23.06.17
After a restful holiday, we all returned raring to go again! In our first week back, the year 6's enjoyed an amazing visit to Truro College. This day gave them an insight to the opportunities open to them in the future. We enjoyed a dance workshop, photography and even wheelchair basketball! It was a fun-filled day and we all left brimming with enthusiasm. In English we have been learning how to write dialogue based on a short film we watched together.
This second week back has been slightly different as most of our year 6's have been away at Barton Hall with Miss Mewton and Mrs Berry. The remaining year 6 children have been engrossed in group projects covering various aspects of our topic 'The Sea'.

It's hard to believe that we've reached half term already! The children have had an amazing half term with many activities and lessons learning about our topic 'Under the Sea'; from beach trips, art work, geography, a visit from the RNLI and much more (not forgetting how hard they worked in their SATs). Next half term will be just as exciting as we enter the final few weeks of this academic year.
As we've had some lovely sunny weather, we will be enjoying some time outside for our activities and lessons, as well as the usual breaks, therefore, please ensure your child has sun cream and a hat in school at all times.
We hope you have a fantastic 2 week break and we look forward to seeing you all in June.

Once again, the children have worked incredibly hard this week as we prepare them for their up and coming assessments. They are a dedicated class of children and are a real credit to you and the school.
Last week, we made our own printing blocks using cardboard and string to create our own Japanese style prints. Using tissue paper, we created a chequered back drop for our print designs. The results were brilliant; each were vibrant and unique.
On Friday, we had a carousel of Science activities to investigate, in celebration of Science week. The children were able to make slime, form a rainbow of colour mix, create reactions and watch colours travel up absorbent materials.
