Year 6

Weekly Update of w/e 15th June 2018

The children have been working hard this week learning some new songs for the production and starting to work on some of the scenes for the first part of the play.  We have also begun to look at our Young Apprentice project this week.  We have put ourselves into groups and decided on our company name and have started to discuss our “products” and what our stalls might look like (more details to follow).

A letter was sent home this week about the costumes for the school production.  We would appreciate it if the children could bring in their £5 donations as soon as possible, so that we can make their costumes and props for the play. Thank you for your support with this.

Next week ……

Tues: Sycamore Distraction Training

Wed: Hornbeam Distraction Training

Thursday: Hazard Alley Trip (all day)

Friday: Sports Day (afternoon)

Hazard Alley Trip:

On Thursday we are taking the children to Milton Keynes to the Hazard Alley Safety Centre.  The children will need to be in school on time, the coach will leave promptly at 9am. They will need to wear their school uniform and bring a packed lunch (unless you have ordered one from the school kitchen). We still have some outstanding payments and consent that need to be given prior to us taking the children out on this trip.

Maths and English:

As part of our Young Apprentice project the children will be using their maths skills to create a business plan, which will need to include costings, pricing and predictions of profits.  In English they will be using their persuasive skills to convince the Bank Managers (the Year 6 teachers) to fund their projects.  They will need to develop a pitch and also create their own advertising materials to promote their stalls/products to the other children in the school.


The children need to be learning the songs and their lines for the school production.


Sycamore: Tuesday and Wednesday

Hornbeam: Tuesday and Friday
