“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date…”
In RE, Year 6 were asked to research how to write the message ‘Jesus is Alive’ in as many languages as they could, just like the disciples preached at Pentecost and everyone heard them in their own native tongue.
Year 6 visited the EnviroSort plan at Wittington, near Worcester, for a fantastic, educational visit.
The children were able to see the recycling coming into the plant and watch as it was sorted for recycling. They then had a session in the education room where they learnt about what can and can’t be recycled and the processes that are carried out. They were then able to put what they had learnt into practice by sorting some rubbish on the classroom conveyor belt.
The children will now share what they have learnt with the rest of the school and wider community.
PE: Outdoor Adventurous
Year 6 had a wonderful day bellboating; despite a bit of rain. The highlight of the day was going through the diamond shaped lock (one of the few in the country) and managing to spin the boat whilst in the lock.
The rest of day included working on technique, racing and of course, the cat walk show!
Alton Castle Residential
Year 6 have had a great time at Alton Castle, with different groups taking part in a selection of activities (cycling, biking, low ropes, survival, archery or trekking). They had fantastic weather and were able to fully enjoy the countryside around the castle, which is beautiful. There was also time to sing and our pupils showed everyone else how to do the actions for ‘Go Anywhere’, by Rend Collective-one of their favourite songs.
In the evenings the children played a series of group games and activities, celebrated mass and even had time for a disco!
Year 6 are really enjoyed their Bikeability sessions. On Day 1 they rode on the playground, to practise their skills and assess their readiness to ride on the roads, which they then did on Days 2 and 3. The children also learnt about the Highway code and how to keep themselves safe on the roads.
Music: The Big Sing
Year 6 took part in the the Big Sing, organised by Severn Arts and the University of Worcester, which took place at University of Worcester Arena on Thursday 16 June 2022.
The Big Sing is an interactive performance where key stage 2 pupils gather from across Worcestershire to sing prepared pieces as part of a huge singing workshop. It is an exciting and motivational opportunity for children and teachers alike to be part of a large-scale musical experience, led by world renowned singing leaders Ula Weber and Suzzie Vango, accompanied by a live band.
The theme for this year’s event was ‘Around the World’. Each song had been carefully chosen and was used to improve vocal technique as well as providing an opportunity for links to the National Curriculum.
Children and staff had a wonderful time and learnt lots! Thank you Mr Lister for booking this and for teaching the children all of the songs in their music lessons.
The children enjoyed learning more about coding this term, using Scratch to examine the code used in games and then changing elements of the code to design their own version of the game!
