A glimpse of life in Year 6 

We had a visit from ‘Good News for Everyone!’ They kindly gave us each a Bible and a magazine. 

We all thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters for World Book Day!

We also dressed up in digits for the NSPCC Number Day!

All of the Year 6 children participated in the Primary Maths Challenge. We were so proud of all of their efforts.

In science, we completed the bird beak experiment, which helped us to understand the concept of evolution.

We learnt about the parts of a circle.

Prime number party time!
