Outdoor Play Equipment
We are really lucky to have some fantastic new play equipment that we get a chance to play on when it is our turn in the various parts of the playground according to the bubble rota and rules. Here are some pictures of us when we are on the rota for the trim trail part of the playground.
October - The month when we especially remember to say the Rosary.
During October, we did some work on The Rosary and the beads are used to help us to pray. We have Rosary beads on our focus area to remind us of the prayers that we say.

Year 6 are working really hard on place value with numbers to 10,000,000 and their attitude to work has been excellent as you can see from the concentration shown by the children in this photo!

The Friendly Elephant
This is our ‘Friendly Elephant’. She is part of our wellbeing curriculum and sits with anyone who needs her. Children are developing skills of empathy by looking out for children who look as if they need a bit of TLC from the Friendly Elephant and asking them if they would like the elephant to sit with them.
On Friday we do RE. This week we have been learning about Mother Teresa and how her life was shaped by her beliefs. We had a lovely class act of worship and set out our focus area. We have finished our first RE topic of Year 6 and are now ready to start our next topic – Commitment and Vocations
First day back
The first day back after five and a half months off school could have been difficult but this lovely group of year sixes came back ready to work and with fabulous attitudes. Well done year six, we are very proud of you!

Problem solving in Maths
We worked in pairs to solve some problems involving the area of triangles. It was hard work but by using our talk partners we found the answers.
Lab Rascals came to teach us about polymers while we made slime as part of science week. We really enjoyed it and learned some exciting new skills and science facts!
Year six had a fabulous time on the football assault course that Mr. Allot set up for Cafod’s ‘What’s Your Goal?’ fundraising day. He even managed to organise some good weather!
Primary futures visitors
As part of our work on raising aspirations and inspiring others we have had two very special visitors to come and see us. Mr Hootten - a retired paramedic- come to see us and talk to us about the training and commitment needed to be a paramedic. We got to try some equipment and learnt some of the scientific terms for parts of the body including the largest organ in the body.
Linda came to see us who works in the Oil & Gas industry. She helped us to draw a diagram showing the process that is used for separating oil, gas and water when it comes out of the sea.
Year six now have standing desks which mean that if we want to stand up to do our work, we can. It’s great for those of us who find sitting down for long periods of time tricky or who like to stretch our legs!
