On Monday 2nd July 2018, there will be a year 6 residential meeting at 3:30pm in Mrs Hickling’s classroom. This short meeting will provide key information regarding our exiting trip to Ambleside in May 2019. It would be fantastic to see as many year 5 pupils and families as possible so if you are free then please come along.
Today Class 4 visited Conkers. We enjoyed a fantastic day exploring the Fairy Labyrinth, playing in the amazing playground and hunting for mini-beasts such as spiders, slugs and ladybirds. We also got to experience a 4D cinema, which lots of us thought was really cool! We kept safe in the sun by wearing our sun-cream and sunhats and Mrs Atamaniuk was impressed with our behaviour throughout the day.
Looking for bugs!

Dear parents and carers,
As the year 6 pupils will be transitioning to their secondary schools next week, we have decided to give the children less homework. As this will be a busy time for them we don’t want to put any undue stress on them and therefore they are only required to complete three pieces of work for next week. The homework will be handed out on Friday 29th June 2018 and is to be completed by next Friday 6th July 2018.
Incy Wincy Spider is one of our favourite rhymes. We have linked many of our activities to it this week.
It’s been exciting and scary to have found lots of different bugs and creatures.
Spiders can walk on walls. We walked on wallpaper. “It was a bit slippy and slidy”.
We had to wash the paint off. “It was cold and splashy”.
We learned how to use a magnifying glass and spotted a real spider!
We found a caterpillar, a ladybird, bees, beetles, a snail and three frogs in the wildlife area.
There were bugs hiding in the compost.
We used brushes to paint pictures of bugs and spiders.
It was tricky to blow the paint to create a spider but we all managed to do it.
We created a swamp for our insects by mixing compost with water. “It is messy!”
Can you help the children to search for bugs in you gardens? There is so much knowledge and language involved. Your children can tell you lots about small creatures and are very caring towards them.
