Crucial Crew.

 On Friday 16th November, all year 6 pupils took part in an event aimed to raise awareness of safety.

The scheme, ran by Hertfordshire County,  has been a favourite with year 6 children for many years. 

During the morning, children took part in many scenarios which challenged their ideas of safety and risk taking. 

The session was run by members from all sectors of the emergency services.

The sessions included fire safety at home, initial first aid along with rail,water and internet safety.

On 23rd October, we visited Hatfield House. Henry VIII owned Hatfield House and used it as a nursery for his three children (Mary, Elizabeth and Edward). We were able to find out about life their in Tudor times and meet Henry VIII himself! 

Spelling and Grammar.

As a key aspect of the Year 6 curriculum, it is very important that your children are practising both in school as well as at home.

Below is access to Espresso Learning, a website which has in depth focus on many aspects of your child's curriculum.  

We are including the spelling and grammar resources from years 2-5 as this will help build and establish a strong understanding required for the year 6 text. 

Although not a year 6 requirement, we highly recommend that all children read through this website regularly and take part in the games. 

By re visiting and practising the information from all year groups your children will be in a better position when learning new year 6 grammar goals.

Team Building

On Friday 7th September, the whole of year 6 took part in various team building events. We had a lot of fun and lots of laughs as well as learning more about 6P!
