World War 2 trip to Lotherton Hall

On Monday 18th September Year 6 visited Lotherton Hall. They began the day as WW2 evacuee children, gaining an insight in to what life was like during the 1940s. Throughout the day they took part in various activities which included: using Morse Code to send secret messages; assisting medical staff with wounded soldiers and learning about various World War Two artefacts. They even had time for a good old sing-song!

PSHE Week 

This week has been PSHE week, so some of our lessons have been a little bit different. In Year 6, we have been learning all about anti-social behaviour and peer pressure. We were very lucky, as we had two local Police Officers visit our class to discuss: the effects of anti-social behaviour out in the community; how to deal with peer pressure and how to stay safe in our local area.

Walking with our buddies to church 

We had a great time walking to church with our buddies. We asked them lots of questions and found out what they liked to do in school and at home.

Shining our Light brightly 

Today, we learnt how we can shine our light brightly to help those around us. We are like a bright candle when we are not afraid to let our good deeds shine out so that all can see we know Jesus. 

"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
(Matt 5:14-16)

Visit from Nurse Briony 

This week has been PSHE week across school and Year 6 have been discussing what they would like to be when the grow up. We were very lucky as we had a visit from Briony who came to talk to us about being a nurse in a GP's Surgery. She began by telling us the journey she went on to become a nurse and what first inspired her to go into the profession. We were then able to ask her lots of interesting questions about the different jobs she has to do as nurse and some of the challenges she has faced - some of our questions were very tricky! We finished the talk by having a look at the different bandages she may use, we practised taking blood pressure and we talked about the different places we could find our pulse.

A Christmas Carol Sleepover

Last week, Year Six enjoyed their very own 'A Christmas Carol' sleepover in school. They began their evening by creating a number of Christmas decorations (by candle light) which included: Christmas cone people, lanterns and the world's longest paper chain. Once the creative side was complete, we all sat together to enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner cooked by Mr B. We enjoyed spending our evening together, telling jokes and having lots of fun! We even had a nice surprise as Santa had left us some lovely presents to open the next morning.
