  Reading information

In Year Six, we encourage independent readers and the expectation is that pupils read every day. It is your child's responsibility to choose either a book from home or the classroom to have in school. We recommend that they choose a variety of genre. They are required to record the details in a class reading folder which is periodically checked to ensure that their choices are both suitable and challenging. We will be assessing all of the children over the next few weeks to ensure that they are reading at a suitable level.

Distractions Workshop - Thursday 17th January

Many road traffic incidents are the result of a distraction. Often these distractions are brought about by the use of mobile phones or earphones when out near the roads. These dangers are simulated and demonstrated by walking around a set obstacle course whilst texting or using a portable music player to show how basic tasks can be made much more difficult by such distractions. Thank you to the ‘Safe and Sustainable Journeys in Schools Team’ for visiting our school to provide this valuable workshop for our Year 6 Children.

Year 6 Visit to RAF Hendon
On Wednesday Year Six dressed as evacuees and visited RAF Hendon where they travelled back in time to November 1940, when the Blitz was at its peak. They met a strict and knowledgeable Air Raid Warden, braved an air raid and dressed in authentic World War Two RAF uniforms. It was a fantastic trip and all the children came away with an enhanced understanding of Britain's role during this significant period of our history.
