Year 6: Blog items

Summer 2 Week 7

Date: 21st Jul 2017 @ 3:05pm

I can only describe it as a pleasure and a privilege to have taught this incredible Year 6 class throughout this year. It has been an amazing year that has been full of hard work, determination and resilience and I am absolutely bursting with pride at the effort and focus of each and every member of this wonderful class.

It has also been a year of so many adventures and so many laughs too and I will miss teaching each and every one of you!

It has been an absolutely fantastic year and I feel so lucky to have taught 31 Year 6 children who have made themselves, their families and definitely their teachers incredibly, incredibly proud. Thank you so much for just being you and, once again, I wish you all of the luck of the world when you move onto your next adventure. Thank you!

A special additional thank you for the kindness and generosity in all cards and gifts; they really do mean an awful lot and I am very grateful.

Enjoy your summer holidays and stay safe!

Summer 2 Week 6

Date: 14th Jul 2017 @ 9:34am

Just wow! Year 6 stole the show and our hearts this week with their incredibly moving and comedic leaver’s performance. Every single child brought their role to life with their acting skills and we are absolutely bursting with pride. So many memories have been created from this performance and we certainly will not be forgetting this amazing class of children either. Nevertheless, there is still another week left to savour and enjoy…and we most certainly will! (Please see some pictures from one of our performance rehearsals above).

In our RE work this week, we took part in a vocabulary challenge! The children played Quiz Quiz Trade in order to boost their knowledge of various complex vocabulary relating to various beliefs in God. Following this, the children demonstrated just how much they had remembered in a vocabulary challenge with impressive results.

We have also taken part in our final KS2 "House Competition" in the sport of Rounders and we have also been considering our hopes and dreams as we now look ahead to our leaver’s service next Friday…

A thrilling week for all and a well-deserved weekend. See you all on Monday!

Summer 2 Week 5

Date: 7th Jul 2017 @ 3:47pm

Another week with the wonderful Year 6 has flown by in a flash and, as always, we have been so busy!

In RE, we have continued our unit on ‘Ideas about God’ and have started to look at a variety of descriptions that people use to describe God based on their varying beliefs and faiths. The level of vocabulary that the children are using is so impressive for their age and I can’t wait to see just how their interpretations and ideas further develop.

Other highlights have included our rehearsals for the end of year performance where the children have worked so hard to learn their lines and their acting skills are developing brilliantly. We have also had our music celebration assembly where the children had the opportunity to show off all that they have learned in their brass sessions throughout the year with Mr Asbridge from Sefton Music Service.

A particular highlight has been our amazing Scholastic book fair which we visited throughout this week to explore the range of books on offer and to really promote reading for pleasure amongst our Year 6. We had a great time browsing the books and making our “wish lists”.

A well-deserved weekend for all! Enjoy yourselves and we will see you on Monday…

Summer 2 Week 4

Date: 30th Jun 2017 @ 9:54pm

This half term is absolutely flying by! We are as busy as ever with so many highlights plus even more still to come.

In our RE learning we commenced our final unit of the year. This unit is titled ‘People of Faith’ and is a particularly apt unit to conclude Year 6’s RE learning at primary school. It allows the children to explore and reflect on different ideas about God and express what effect this has had on their own beliefs. Our introductory lesson was bursting with thoughtful insight as an abundance of personal thoughts and beliefs led to such deep, meaningful discussion.

Elsewhere we have been exploring deforestation linked to our Theme on the Amazon Rainforest. Year 6 have armed themselves with facts and information about the vast importance of the so-called “Lungs of the Earth”. We first created a flapbook which explained the various layers of a rainforest and the various forms of life that you would expect to find in each layer. They were then tasked with creating a piece of writing to describe and explain the effects of deforestation. This had impressive results and, as a matter of fact, every Year 6 child in the class is firmly against deforestation!

An excellent week once again and I hope you all have a brilliant weekend. See you on Monday!    

Summer 2 Week 3

Date: 23rd Jun 2017 @ 6:44pm

We have had yet another great week in Year 6 with lots of highlights to report!

The week started not only with glorious sunshine but Year 6 also had the chance to participate in a 'Cycle Transition Rides' day, courtesy of Sustrans. It was great to watch the children confidently perform safety checks on their bikes before taking off onto the roads of Formby where they demonstrated their cycling proficiency. We had lots of fun and this was followed up by an interactive presentation in class from Joe Morris about his experience and knowledge of keeping safe on the roads.

Continuing this month’s value of Friendship, we have been looking specifically at the script for our end of year performance. Not to give too much away, the plot revolves around a class reunion many years after the children have flown the TSP nest. We discussed the special invisible thread that will always thread our Year 6’s together and how they should always support, nurture and look out for one another.

This week and this half term in particular is absolutely flying. Have a fantastic weekend and see you all on Monday!

Summer 2 Week 2

Date: 15th Jun 2017 @ 8:45pm

It just never stops in Year 6! From our ‘Engage for Africa’ charity project; to our amazing scone making as part os our DT Food project; to our magazine reviews on our theme parks with so much more too. There really has been so much exciting learning taking place that I simply don’t know where to begin!

On Thursday, we supported Save the Children UK which is a charity organisation committed to supporting the wellbeing of children both in the UK and around the world. We took part in ‘Den Day’ where we used our imagination, resilience and teamwork in order to build dens and to learn about the importance of shelter. In doing so we also raised money in order to help to change the lives of children much less fortunate than ourselves.

We also had the amazing opportunity this week to visit Chester Zoo as the stimulus for our new Theme, ‘What is life like in the Amazon?’ Whilst at the zoo, we observed a wealth of wildlife whose natural habitat would be that of the Amazon Rainforest. We had a great time and now we look forward to taking our learning back into the classroom by further exploring this amazing, rich habitat of thriving biodiversity.    

Another fantastic week and I’m already looking forward to the next. Enjoy your weekend!

Summer 2 Week 1

Date: 8th Jun 2017 @ 3:23pm

What a fantastic start to the final half term of the year as our amazing Year 6’s returned recharged and refreshed following a well-earned break!

In an eventful week in both the world of politics and entertainment, this was no different within Year 6 as we readied ourselves for the TSP General Election on Thursday as well as our TSP’s Got Talent performance on Friday.

It was astounding to be part of such rich and productive class discussions with 10 and 11-year-old children who were just so engaged with the political world that awaits them as they reach voting age. After exploring each of the manifestos of the main political parties, we formed our own opinions and decided what we wanted most for the world that we live in. Following our individual votes being cast and counted, the winner, with the overall Year 6 majority, was…Labour!

Our TSP’s Got Talent Performance was not one to be missed as the individual Y6 performers of Holly and Catarina performed with such courage and enjoyment with Holly singing ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ and Catarina with her musical theatre performance of ‘Naughty’ from Matilda the Musical. It was then time for the Y6 class performance which was executed with such style and swag. Adorned in custom made t-shirts, caps and sunglasses, the children performed a nostalgic rendition of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’. Well done Year 6 – you continue to make me so proud of your never-ending talent!

As part of our Collective Worship work, we asked the question ‘What is love?’ linked to the Manchester One Love at the weekend. After listening to the emotional, powerful and incredibly apt lyrics of ‘Where is the love?’, which the Black Eyed Peas performed at the concert, we explored this question and established that love is togetherness, unity, strength and coming together as one.  

An incredible week and I look forward to the next one already!

Summer 1 Week 6

Date: 25th May 2017 @ 10:42pm

What a brilliant week to bring to end an eventful, hardworking and fruitful half term that is also bursting with highlights!

This week was no different with so much to choose from including: the calculating of ticket prices and profit margins for our theme parks in Maths; our exploration of the various Maya gods and goddesses (with their many quirks) and also our “House” competition in Quadkids Athletics.

For our monthly value of Courage, we explored the courage of wolves in the way that they set up their “wolfpack”. We loved learning about how selfless the wolves are and how everything that they do is for the good of the pack. Each wolf is responsible for ensuring that the pack remains unified and on the same path. This taught us a lot about being a true leader!

In our Quadkids competition, we were greeted by an extremely warm and sunny Thursday afternoon as we took to our school field. The four events of: sprinting, long distance running, throwing and jumping allowed us to achieve an overall score which contributed towards our House Team total score. There was some truly impressive Athletics on show and a big thank you to Mr Hunt from Formby High School and his Young Leaders who helped to organise and run the event.

The perfect end to our half term!

I hope you all have a wonderful week off and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday 5th June. Have fun!

Summer 1 Week 5

Date: 19th May 2017 @ 7:18pm

What an absolutely fantastic week in Year 6!

We have had such fun with so much new learning taking place that has included: our new Theme on the Maya civilisation, our Maths project work where we are theme park designers, some particularly relevant newspaper writing centred around the presence of fidget spinners in our classrooms and so much more. We have loved it!

To top off a brilliant week, Year 6 took part in the ‘Race for Life’, adorned in blue and pink attire, to raise money for the most worthwhile of causes – Cancer Research. Year 6 had the chance to run the race with their Reception “buddies” and it was so humbling to see children at the top age of the school supporting, nurturing and encouraging our younger classes. Thank you to all who participated and supported this important event!

I look forward to an equally brilliant week after a well-deserved weekend break. Enjoy it everyone!

Summer 1 Week 4

Date: 12th May 2017 @ 5:03pm

Wow! We truly are blessed to have such an amazing class of children with all the amazing resilience, courage and focus which they have displayed in abundance throughout this week. Every single child should feel incredibly proud of themselves and we simply couldn’t have asked any more from them. They are a credit to themselves, their families and our school.

Need I mention that our monthly value for May is Courage?

On Friday, we went on a well-deserved trip to Formby Pinewoods and Beach to celebrate all of our hard work and to enjoy some time together as a class in the great outdoors. Despite the temperamental weather, we had a brilliant time through various different games including rounders and various “sand art”.

A proud week in the life of Year 6 and we look forward to the next one already. Enjoy a well-deserved weekend break and see you all on Monday!

Summer 1 Week 3

Date: 5th May 2017 @ 4:33pm

We are so proud of Year 6! Every single child has worked so hard, so resiliently and we simply couldn’t ask any more from them.

Throughout this busy week we have started our new monthly value of Courage which was particularly apt for this time of year. The children watched a thought provoking video stimulus that connected courage and resilience and explored the deeper meaning of how we actually display these qualities every single day. Courage is certainly something that the children understand well within Year 6 but, following our discussions, it was clear that understanding had become much deeper, more relevant and much more meaningful.

In our Maths work we took part in some “Graffiti Maths” as an opportunity to revisit various Maths concepts at the end of our working week. The children absolutely loved having the opportunity to show off their vast mathematical knowledge and vocabulary in such a creative and exciting way. The final piece is undoubtedly a masterpiece in its own right and we had such fun in creating it from start to finish!

An incredible week with an incredible class of individuals. Have a wonderful weekend everybody, enjoy the sunshine and we look forward to seeing you fresh and relaxed on Monday morning!

Summer 1 Week 2

Date: 28th Apr 2017 @ 7:58pm

Year 6 are amazing! What a class of wonderful, imaginative, hardworking children we have. They are a credit to themselves and we are so proud of their resilience, focus and positive outlook.

Linked to our monthly value of Trust, we continued our Peer Massage led by therapy company ‘Listening Hands’. We then applied our newly developed skills in a separate session accompanied by soothing music which led to an extremely relaxed and mellow aura thereafter within the Year 6 classroom.   

This week we have participated in a particularly deep and insightful lesson related to our PSHE work. After watching a thought provoking stimulus, which explored the discrimination of race, disability and sexuality, we discussed hate crime and how this can be present in society and also what we can do to help minimise it. We connected our learning to our British Values in terms of tolerance, respect and how the rule of law protects such potentially vulnerable groups of people.

Following this, we had the opportunity to explore a range of reading books which delve into similar issues such as ‘And Tango Makes Three’ by Justin Richardson and ‘Azzi in Between’ by Sarah Garland. The children LOVED exploring these stories and they could accurately and sensitively summarise the messages within them to the rest of their classmates.

A fantastic week and a well-deserved bank holiday weekend for a wonderful class. Enjoy it everyone!     

Summer 1 Week 1

Date: 21st Apr 2017 @ 5:30pm

Year 6 returned recharged and refreshed on Tuesday after a well-deserved Easter break. It was great to see them all and to hear about their various holidays, trips, visits and adventures during the time off!

In a busy and ever productive week, we certainly hit the ground running with so much learning and curiosity filling our classroom.

Our Theme focus this week was centred around our Universal Human Rights as summarised in the picturebook – ‘We Are All Born Free’. This amazing picturebook was developed for the purpose of enabling younger children to understand the rights in the Declaration and it really did spark our curiosity and critical thinking. Following this amazing stimulus, we were given a problem solving task where we had to find examples of each article in action which prompted lots of discussion and debate.

We also started our new PE unit this week with FHS which was focused on Athletics. Our aim this week was to master our sprinting technique with an effective sprint start. We worked so hard throughout the session and it’s onto long distance next week!

In our Collective Worship work, we began our monthly value of Trust. To do so, we participated in some peer message which was led by therapy company ‘Listening Hands’. Our value was evident throughout this session as the children trusted one another to perform these massage techniques and did so with care and attention to their partner.

A great start to our Summer term and I wish you a brilliant weekend!

Spring 2 Week 6

Date: 30th Mar 2017 @ 9:25pm

In this final week of an extremely hard working Spring term, Year 6 have achieved so much and have had so much fun!

We really have been as busy as ever as we have taken part in a range of sporting opportunities alongside all of our other work. This array of opportunities has included:

  • The chance to use the Cyber Coach Dance Mats to improve our Maths skills.

  • An interform PE competition led by Formby High School where we participated against our “House” teams in the sport of Dodgeball.

  • Our final Hockey session with Formby Hockey Club where we showcased our much developed skills and applied them to round robin matches at the end.

In addition to all of this, a further thrilling opportunity came our way when Joe “Lean in 15” Hicks led a live schools’ workout via his YouTube channel. We joined the fitness revolution along with hundreds of other schools and we absolutely loved it. What a fantastic and novel way to exercise and Year 6 certainly did feel the effects afterwards! Thank you to “the body coach” for putting us through our paces!

In RE, we completed our unit on ‘Who is Jesus?’ by evaluating our learning and reflecting on our understanding and new thinking. We also recorded our final, individual responses to the question ‘Does it matter what Jesus actually looked like?’ which were well considered and fascinating to read.

This really has been an absolutely amazing term for a class of children who have worked so hard and are well deserving of this two week break. I wish you all a happy and holy Easter and I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 18th April and hearing about all your adventures. Thank you everyone – keep on shining!

Spring 2 Week 5

Date: 24th Mar 2017 @ 3:57pm

What a busy week in Year 6 which ended with a fantastic Friday to celebrate Red Nose Day!

Our Red Nose Day events involved each “house” team in KS2 taking part in different activities in different classes with the theme being red art. The activities included making red pom-poms, collaging photographs of red items into a combined banner and much, much more. We had a brilliant time whilst also learning about the important work of Comic Relief and the positive difference that they are trying to make in the world. We capped off an excellent day with a “nose and spoon” relay race in the sunshine!

Our RE unit on ‘Who is Jesus?’ allowed us to delve into further discussions about how Jesus is represented in different cultures around the world. We explored a variety of artwork and depictions of him – both modern and historical – in order to gain a full picture of other’s perceptions of Jesus. Our main discussion question of ‘Does it matter what Jesus actually looked like?’ prompted such deep, insightful thinking from the children with a range of viewpoints argued from both sides.

Such an eventful week which has absolutely flown by. Enjoy your weekend Year 6 and see you Monday!

Spring 2 Week 4

Date: 16th Mar 2017 @ 10:46pm

We returned to school on Monday fresh from our Lakeside residential from the previous week. We had such a memorable and exciting experience in what was a brilliant, fun-filled time spent with an amazing class of children.

With this return, Year 6 have shown such resilience and positivity towards their learning with each child just striving to give their very best.

We have produced some tremendous narrative writing based on our theme of 'What is unique about The Alps?' which showcased just what creative writers we have in Year 6. Our writing stemmed from our stimulus of an extreme mountain skier who gets caught in an avalanche as well as our Skype call with Alex Stanisforth who witnessed the effects of a real avalanche first-hand. Writing in the first person, the children really brought their stories to life and the descriptions of both the mountain itself as well as their descriptions of experiencing an avalanche were just phenomenal.

In Collective Worship, we are building our understanding of our monthly value of Forgiveness which is our focus for the rest of March.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and an enjoyable St. Patrick's Day - “Céad Mile Fáilte”.    

Spring 2 Week 2

Date: 2nd Mar 2017 @ 10:17pm

Another week in Year 6, another week full of learning opportunities and highlights!

During World Book Day, we explored a different culture by reading ‘Rickshaw Girl’ by Mitali Perkins. This book, set in the vastly different culture of Bangladesh, allowed us to draw contrasts and comparisons between different values and living standards from our own. We created our own alpana patterns (which Bangladeshi women and girls paint on their houses for special celebrations) which were beautifully and carefully designed by the children. We also used both ‘Rickshaw Girl’ and the stimulus of ‘Fairtrade Fortnight’ to write a critical discussion based around Fairtrade and whether or not it is worthwhile. The children’s answers were deep, meaningful and so well considered for children of their age. Well done boys and girls for really delving into our British values and for applying your understanding throughout your World Book Day learning.  

In our RE work, we used the results gathered from our questionnaire last week where we asked teachers for their views on ‘Who is Jesus?’ We compared each response and wrote our personal opinion comparing whose best matched our own.

There is almost too much to mention in our blog this week but we also had the most amazing Skype session with Alex Staniforth who is an adventurer, inspirational speaker and an author all by the age of 21. Alex attempted to climb Mount Everest in 2014 and 2015 and was part of the Nepal earthquake in April 2015 when he witnessed the effects of an avalanche first hand. Alex certainly was an inspiration to us all for all he has achieved in his life so far and we will take lots of ideas from his personal experiences in order to inform our writing.

What a week! Have a brilliant weekend everyone!

Spring 2 Week 1

Date: 24th Feb 2017 @ 3:56pm

Year 6 returned this week refreshed and recharged after a well-deserved half term break! It was great to see them all and to hear all about their adventures and stories from the week off.

We have worked as hard as ever this week and have maintained resilience and a growth mindset across all of our learning. This was evident in PE where we took part in a fitness circuit which pushed us to our limits. After deciding as a class on the ten exercises that would form our circuit, we paired up and moved around the circuit whilst battling to beat the other person’s score. The activities were wide ranging moving right from burpees through to mountain climbers and onto the dreaded “plank”. The red faces and sweaty brows were evidence of the effort put in and the smiles and friendly competitiveness alongside them were even better. Well done boys and girls for really stretching yourselves!

In our ‘Who was Jesus?’ RE unit, we carried out a questionnaire around school which attempted to gather people’s answers to this overarching question. By asking various staff members we compiled this information and noticed that lots of people share similar opinions of Jesus and their experiences of him within our school are all relatable. We are going to delve further into this as the unit continues!

A brilliant week with the wonderful Year 6 and we will see you all on Monday!

Spring 1 Week 6

Date: 10th Feb 2017 @ 11:25am

What a week we have had! There have been so many highlights and experiences to remember in our final week before the half term break.

We commenced our new monthly value of ‘Love’ which we have connected closely to our school value of Nurture which refers to being kind to ourselves and others. We discussed how Love means to show empathy, compassion and respect towards ourselves as well as the needs and feelings of others.

We have also had an array of sporting opportunities throughout this week as we have participated in a speed swimming session at Formby Pool, a sponsored fitness circuit with wheelchair rugby player, Stuart Robinson and a Speed Stacking “house” competition with the help of Formby High School. Congratulations to Mark for winning the second “house” competition of the year!

A fantastic half term where Year 6 have worked so hard and have had so many opportunities along the way. Well done everyone for all of your efforts and enjoy your very well deserved week off!

Spring 1 Week 5

Date: 3rd Feb 2017 @ 3:53pm

Another fantastic week with the lovely Year 6! We have been extremely busy with all of our curriculum opportunities and have enjoyed and embraced our learning journeys along the way.

A particular highlight has been our Brass instrument sessions where the children have shown immense progress since the start of the year. In these sessions, the children have been using the pentatonic scale and (with a focus on the style of Blues music) all the children have even attempted a four bar solo each as well as some twelve bar solos too!

Alongside these Brass sessions we have also been learning ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ rap using Charanga which has been a treat for both children and teachers alike!

Our RE work has allowed us to reflect upon and evaluate our unit of ‘Celebrating the Eucharist’. We unpicked the terminology related to the Last Supper meal and the Eucharist service itself in order to assess our own understanding and our ability to articulate our own opinions on this unit.

Well done Year 6 for another brilliant and fruitful week and we will continue onwards and upwards in our final week before the half term break!   

Spring 1 Week 4

Date: 26th Jan 2017 @ 11:00pm

What a busy and eventful week we have had in Year 6!

In our RE work we completed our unit on ‘Celebrating the Eucharist’ where we applied our knowledge of Eucharist services and its symbolism to create an advertisement for a Eucharist service itself. We had to outline exactly why Christians should attend this service as a central part of their faith and the children’s deep understanding of the service, and the particular aspects of our faith that it refers to, was staggering and led to some brilliant outcomes!

Other highlights included our Science work where we recapped our understanding of the heart and circulatory system which we have been exploring throughout this half term. We loved getting up and about by using “Quiz Quiz Trade” as a way to revise this vocabulary and to cement its meaning by coaching our classmates!

A fantastic week in Year 6 which was topped off by Chinese New Year celebrations on Friday. Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Year 6 Spring 1 Week 3

Date: 19th Jan 2017 @ 10:27pm

Such a busy week in Year 6 – we have worked our socks off!

Our RE focus on Celebrating the Eucharist led to such deep and insightful thinking from members of the class. We extracted parts of the story and explained its symbolism connecting our learning to our understanding of the Bible and the Eucharist service itself. Very impressive stuff!

Elsewhere we have improved our PE skills in not just Tag Rugby but also Hockey with the help of Formby Hockey Club too. It is such a joy to see Year 6’s Hockey skills developing each week just as they have throughout their time at Trinity St. Peter’s! Our particular focus was on ball control, dribbling and shielding the ball effectively. We improved our skillset through a variety of drills that included woggles which attempted to sweep the ball away (as seen in the above picture).

Well done for the hard work that has taken place in Year 6 throughout this week! Have an incredible and relaxing weekend and see you all Monday as we continue to be the best that we can possibly be.

Spring 1 Week 2

Date: 12th Jan 2017 @ 9:40pm

Our first school week of 2017 was full of amazing learning throughout Year 6. We are improving all the time and it is great to have such curious minds and conscientious workers within the class!

This week signalled the start of our new RE unit for this term which is focused around the celebration of the Eucharist. We have already attended a Eucharist Service at St. Peter’s church where we had the opportunity to ask Reverend Anne any questions that we had. So this week was a chance to really delve into the story of the Last Supper and to connect the story itself to the symbolic nature of the Eucharist service. We analysed the video stimulus expertly with lots of great insight and this led to a brilliant class discussion on sacrifice and humility.

In PE, we had a fantastic opportunity for three student coaches from KGV college to come in to support our PE lessons focused on Tag Rugby. We loved our reintroduction to this sport and we focused particularly on both handling the ball and passing before then moving on to short, competitive mini games. This certainly had our hearts racing and we are already looking forward to the next session next week.

A brilliant week yet again and I wish you all a fulfilling weekend!

Spring 1 Week 1

Date: 6th Jan 2017 @ 12:46pm

                                                                

Happy New Year everyone - we wish you all the best for a successful 2017!  

On Wednesday, we were absolutely delighted to welcome back Year 6 and to hear all about how they spent Christmas and New Year with loved ones and, of course, new things.

During this shorter week we have had the opportunity to focus on another religion: Sikhism. We began by exploring the origins of this faith and how it came to exist. After exploring the history of Guru Nanak in particular, we then made comparisons between our religion of Christianity and how Sikhs observe their faith. Year 6 were tasked with exploring the “5 K’s” which are physical symbols worn by Sikhs who have been initiated into the Khalsa (their devout followers). To do so we used our research and note taking to create a mini-book that carefully explains their importance of each of these symbols. We really did learn a lot about this religion and developed our appreciation and respect for other cultures and faiths.

In our Collective Worship sessions we have commemorated the Christian celebration of Epiphany by learning about the Three Wise Men and the symbolism and relevance of the gifts that they brought following their long, arduous journey to Bethlehem. Our Collective Worship Committee then led a lovely Collective Worship session to really explain the importance of this event within the Christian calendar. Thank you to them!

A wonderful (albeit short) return to TSP and now onwards and upwards to next week. Enjoy your weekends!    

Autumn 2 Week 7

Date: 16th Dec 2016 @ 1:54pm

                                                                        

This week has absolutely flown by, bringing our first term to a close!

In PE, Year 6 participated in an interform competition with children from KS2 competing against each other in the sport of "Wazball". It was the first half termly competition of its kind in Trinity St Peter's and we are looking forward to many more opportunities for the children to work within their house teams in physical activity with a friendly competitive nature. They thoroughly enjoyed it and well done to Matthew who are our first winners!

In RE, we learnt about Christmas around the world. Fitting in with our Theme of World War 2, we discovered how Christmas is celebrated in Germany and the many traditions that they share with us in the United Kingdom. 

Have a wonderful Christmas everybody and Happy New Year!
