Wow what a week that was! Children and adults alike have learnt about new cultures in Asia this week with a slight break in continent for a quick trip to the steel drum workshop kindly hosted by Roundwood Primary School- many thanks to those parents who accompanied the classes on this trip. For those parents who were able to join their children for the celebratory picnic or for the look around the school at all the work afterwards we hope that you enjoyed seeing the outcomes of the activities that the children had worked so hard on all week. We were really proud of the work that the children had produced to such a good quality in the short time they had available. Amongst the items on display were sculptures in the making, printing, willow pattern plate designs, Japanese fans and informative posters showing that it hasn’t just been a week of art. Moving on to the work we will be doing after half term- we will be launching our new topic of climates and habitats alongside preparing for our end of year concert and school journey, not forgetting cycling proficiency and those long anticipated days at the new secondary schools. Next half term, we will also be reverting to our normal pace with regards to homework so as to prepare the children for their transition to Secondary school. As part of the preparation for school journey would like the children to design their own T Shirt for the day we leave. For this they will need either a plain white t shirt or some other pale colour on which to produce their design. Many thanks for your support, The year 6 team.
