Nil satis nisi optimum. Nothing but the best is good enough

On June 10th, Year 6 were visited by Worktree a charity who teach children about their future in the workplace. The children played a game of ‘guess the profession’ by asking closed questions to a mural artist, air-traffic controller, personal trainer and lawyer. The opportunity meant the children could get careers information directly from real workers and learn about a variety of professions.

The Yr 6 children had an exciting lesson which involved dissecting a sheep's heart.

This week the Yr 6 children honed their cutting and peeling skills 

Year 6 Fundraising

Thank you to our Year 6 Fundraising group who set up a stall on Wednesday 20th March and Thursday 21st March to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.  They worked really hard and their efforts were well rewarded. Thank you to all those who supported them; they managed to raise a fantastic £85.50 with more cakes to sell next week.

 

On Tuesday 20th March a group of Year 6 children took part in a creative writing experience at Stowe House . They were taken back in time to January 1845, the day before the royal visit from Queen Victoria to Stowe. They looked at objects collected by the Duke at that time. After tracing Queen Victoria’s steps around the grounds they made suggestions about how her visit should go. They explored the portraiture of the time before making one of their own.The children followed up their visit by writing journals that will be displayed at Stowe House. It was a great experience and the children thoroughly enjoyed it.

Spring Term 17/18 Our Year 6 children have worked very hard building models to represent WW2. The standard of these models was outstanding and the pictures show a selection of those submitted.
