As you are all aware, sadly schools will not be returning on June 1st 2020.
As a result, I’m really sorry to inform you that the Year 6 residential trip to Longtown has now been cancelled.
We are in the process of reclaiming the funds that have been paid and all families will receive a refund. It will take a few weeks for us to reclaim the money and make the refunds to families, but please be reassured that we are working on this.
For our topic this Summer half term, we will look at Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Recipes’ as a stimulus to our learning.
We will look at different recipes from Roald Dahl’s different texts and manipulate them to create our own Marvellous concoctions! We will be applying our accurate measuring skills, scaling up recipes and converting between metric and imperial units in Maths and Numeracy.
In Science and Technology, we will be looking at reversible and irreversible changes when making revolting recipes as well as looking at how we can sieve and filter solids and liquids. We will be presenting our findings using a Slideshow. Children will also be exploring bottle/wrapper designs, make their own for their revolting recipes and evaluate their designs and undertake some making at home in the kitchen! We will also be evaluating how good (or not!!) our revolting recipes taste and testing them out on the family!
In Languages, we will be writing a biography about Roald Dahl’s life and will be writing instructions to make a revolting recipe.We will be working on improving our sentence level work (complex sentences, fronted adverbials and imaginative vocabulary) We will also be continuing with our work on Gwyliau in Welsh and revising what we have learned this year.
In RE, we will look at creation and compare creation stories from other faiths. In Expressive Arts, we will be exploring the style of the illustrator Quentin Blake and will be designing out own characters in his style. We will also be designing our own revolting recipes! In Humanities, we will be looking at maps to source where all of our ingredients have come from and calculating the distances. In Health and Wellbeing - We will continue to complete our daily exercises and consider the impact of our recipes on our health.

Our school Christian Value for this term is Trust.
Trust is a really important value and must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.

Snack money is £1.50 per week, and should be paid via ParentPay before 8am on Monday mornings.
We are proud to be a Healthy School and children should only eat fresh fruit or fresh vegetables for their snack.
We provide a wide variety of choice including: apples, oranges, bananas, melon, pineapple, plums, peaches and carrots sticks when in season.
If you prefer, you may send in fresh fruit or fresh vegetables from home for their snack.

Children may bring a bottle of water to school to drink. We are happy to refill their bottles for them during the day.
