Proud of their work
Here are some of the best pieces of work from the children and detail about what they have been learning in this academic block.
Today, Redwood and Chestnut were writing a descriptive story and did an amazing job. As a whole class, we wrote about the lost forest. It was all on pobble365. Pobble365 is some pitcuresthaat are dating all of the days of the years. We were all very excited to do our own. We had a great time and we thank Miss Kelly and Mrs Andrews for letting us pick our own.

For the past couple of days Redwood and Chestnut have been helping out with sports day. We all enjoyed doing the races with all the years. Unfortantly, when it came to ours it rained but we had a great time and I think we did a wonderful job.
Today, Redwood and Chestnut were at Birches Valley, and we had a great time. We had Miss Kelly, Mrs Andrews and Mrs Scanlan sitting on these big, medium and small chairs it was realy funny. We made these realy good dens and we had a ice lolly while we was sitting on the wide open space feild every one had a great time.
Now you may think that year 6 would hate to come to school on a Sunday… well, you would be wrong! This Sunday, 37 fresh-faced, eager children arrived at school ready to revise and play team games to help them relax and be ready for their challenge ahead. In the morning, Redwood and Chestnut children completed spelling rules, ‘The Great Grammar Challenge!’, maths revision and comprehension challenges and then we all had lunch together…curry: a year 6 favourite! In the afternoon, we played an exciting game of ultimate Frisbee where the staff were definitely more competitive than the children. It was great fun! Year 6 are currently taking their tests and are persevering even when they feel it is a little hard. Good luck everyone!
Super SATs revision
For the last two weeks, Redwood have been revising for their SATs tests – scary! Fortunately, the whole class have been really focussed and determined to do their best. In order for us to succeed, Miss Kelly has encouraged us to learn key facts through singing silly songs!
See below for our fabulous video and the YouTube links so you can sing along.

In sports week, Redwood & Chestnut were given roles to help out with the other year's sports day. Some people were measuring the shotput,discus and long jump distances others were helping set up the track and equipment ready for the races but all the parents and participants were impressed and somewhat thankful for our helping out. Itwas fun in the end although the weather dropped to the end of the week but we did a good deed.
In year 6, we were writing about our topic (deforestation). It's where trees are being chopped down to make products such as: shampoo, palm oil and chocolate. All of year 6, were doing a big write and everyone did extremely well trying to include subordinating conjunctions, adverbials and hyperboles. Miss Kelly and Miss Andrews wanted to put them all up, however 38 big writes will not fit onto one wall. The whole of year 6 were so excited, especially Demi and Hannah, to aim to get their work celebrated on the wall.
In Chestnut and Redwood last week we were rewarded for working thoroughly for the whole day.
Due to this for the last 15 mins of the day we were able to have a snack which included tea and biscuits.
All of the students enjoyed this and hope that this could happen again sometime.
In year six Redwood and Chestnut because it wasn't easy and we all tried to make everyone understand.
Children in year 6 help each other and Mrs Andrews and Miss Kelly try to get everyone involved in their learning so no one is left out.
