Welcome to Year 6!
During the first half of the Summer Term, the Year 6 children will be focusing upon the following learning challenge question:
Will you ever see the water you drink again?
Read our Summer Term newsletter to find out more about what we are going to be learning about as part of this learning challenge.
During the week beginning 18th June, Year Six held their own enterprise event to raise money to buy props for our Key Stage Two production. We sold ice lollies at the end of the school day. The enterprise event showed that we have many budding entrepreneurs in our class. We are delighted to announce that we raised £116.00 for props for the production. Thank you to everyone who came to buy ice lollies.
During the week beginning Monday 4th June we held Aspiration's Week. The children thoroughly enjoyed visits from a number of companies. These included Angie Dean and Kaefer who talked to us all about the process of applying for jobs and the skills that we might need to do different jobs. We learnt a lot from each visit and it really encouraged us to think about our future careers.
Our Lesson with Trudy Harrison, MP
On Friday 18th May 2018, we enjoyed a visit from our local MP Trudy Harrison. One of our pupils wrote to Mrs Harrison asking her to come into school to deliver a politics lesson to our class. Mrs Harrison was really impressed so a date was quickly arranged. Mrs Harrison told us more about how a session in Parliament is ran and we held a discussion about the issues within Cleator Moor that are important to us. After identifying the issues that we wanted to focus upon the children worked together to create a speech to convince others about how these issues could be resolved. The children thoroughly enjoyed Mrs Harrison's visit and are looking forward to working with her to include their ideas in a plan.
Celebrating the end of our SATs!!
The children have shown great courage this week when sitting their assessments. The children have worked extremely hard - not only this week but in the months leading up to the assessments. We are very proud of each and everyone of them. We had a mini celebration outside and we finished with a game of kick rounders.
