Year 6 have so much to pack into the next few weeks, we're not
sure how we can do it all, but we will try our hardest.
This week we have had a teacher visiting us from the Lebanon as part of our "connecting classrooms" program. For more information please see our web page.
Many of year 6 took part in Bromley's "Bikeability" and learnt how to ride on our roads safely.
We also took the whole of year 6 to a citizenship exhibition which was excellent. The children were split into groups and had interactive talks prepared for them by members of our police force, transport police, the RNLI, Battersea dog's home, the parks department and the fire service.
Each speaker was informative and the children learnt lots. As a test, if your child is in year 6, please ask them what they should do in the event of a fire and get them to check your fire alarms.
Welcome to Year 6!
After all the hard work that year six had put into their National Curriculum Tests many of them chose to relax and let off steam with a five day trip in France, at Chateau Broutel in Rue. The Chateau has a range of activities which all the children (and adults) took part in, favourites being the climbing, abseiling and, of course, the very wet and cold ones in the lake.
The "Blind Trial" was also interesting, as they had to rely on each other to avoid obstacles.
Many children really rose to the challenge with the abseiling and climbing, despite being scared of heights. It was great to hear the "team" shouting out encouragement to their friends as they made their way up (or down) the walls.
We also learnt about Rue itself, and used our French to order bread and hot chocolate from the cafe. The blue tongues from the sweets were an optional extra!
On the last night we had a camp fire, melted marshmallows and a sing along... as well as a talent show. Mr Finch did his bit too
To help us during our World War II learning we have enjoyed looking at real aretfacts, visiting the Imperial War Museum and HMS Belfast, along with using many other fantastic resources both online and in school. We have been lucky to receive and use Historical newspapers to aid our learning , these were kindly provided by http://www.historic-newspapers.co.uk/
