Last week in upper phase was very exciting as we welcomed the new year 5 and the new year 6 children. The week got off to a great start with the Police Cadets coming in on Monday to give our phase a little snippet in to what they could expect if they joined up!
On Wednesday we had our introduction meetings to Y5 and Y6 and it was great to see so many adults - thank you so much for coming.
Thursday was a very exciting day as it was the launch of our new year 6 House Captains. The candidates had to stand up in front of the WHOLE school and deliver a speech, explaining why people should vote for them. The vote was held on Friday, so tune in next week to find out the results!!
We have had a fabulous start to the academic year and have been busy already!
Year 6 have settled well into their new roles in the school. As role models, they have already demonstrated our school values and have been following our school charter in the classroom and outside in the playground. Over the summer, the Year 6 playground has been updated (thanks to our pupils' suggestions) with a new dividing wall and water fountain. They are really enjoying this space. Year 6's have been working hard on their upcoming House Captain campaigns. These are important roles within our school community and will require dedication, patience and kindness. Good luck to all the candidates!
Year 5 have been getting stuck into their new topic of 'Adventures of Time and Space'. Friday they had an amazing topic launch to 'blast off' their learning. But it hasn't been all fun and games, the Year 5 pupils have been working hard in the classroom as well, refreshing their learning after a long summer holiday. They also spent some time in the edible garden this week to clear out beds to prepare for the winter planting.
Watch this space for more news next week!
