To grow daily in God's love, blossoming in His will

Summer Term



We kicked off this term with Holy Week, where we spent time in prayer, sat as a class family for our Seder meal (remembering Jesus' last supper on Maundy Thursday), and made Easter baskets for our local community. Our class delivered the baskets to spread some Easter goodwill and blessings.





We also finished our rainforests topic with a rainforest day. As we were unable to visit the Amazon rainforest for a school trip, we decided to bring the rainforest to our school. We dressed as explorers, set up a camp in our classroom and set off in search of treasures. We used the day as a creative writing workshop before writing our own Amazon adventures.

At the end of the day, we were lucky enough to meet some snakes - some of our classmates brought their pet snakes into our class, which helped us feel a little more like we were in the Amazon.

We have also been creative, making some rainforest inspired models. We made mod rock creatures, which we added to our classroom jungle.

At long last, we reached SATs week. Our Year 6 pupils worked so hard in preparation for these and long last they are done. To celebrate their hard work, we had a small fire where the children 'disposed' of their past practice papers before toasting marshmallows and making s/mores.


As 'well done' for all their hard work, they also had a party. The children enjoyed some cake and party games, received their leavers' hoodies, and spent some time together relaxing! Upon their return to class, they were greeted by Year 5, who hosted further celebrations, congratulating their peers with some songs, dances and poems.

In our summer term, our next topics will be 'Up, Up and Away' and 'Ancient Greeks'. In 'Up, Up and Away', our topic will encompass human geography, observing land-use management and map work, and our science unit, where will work scientifically to test various forces.


Our history topic of 'Ancient Greeks' will allow us to dive into the past, investigating how the Greeks influenced modern, western society.
