Mrs Boothroyd, Mrs Townson and Mrs Dobson would like to welcome you to Year 6 Foxes

Here’s a little insight into what’s to come this half term:
During the last week of half term, I revealed parts of our new book. Children made predictions in their own time about what they think it might be about.
Here is our new book:
It’s History this half term, something this class seem to love!
Here is our new topic:
In Year 6, we love to read! Our Reading Championship is well under-way, with some of our children already achieving their bronze award!
During the holidays, I set a reading challenge, with many of our children reading all three books, giving them a brilliant head start on the Reading Championship. Some children went the extra mile and created these amazing projects based on their reading.
Storytime happens daily, it is one of our favourite times of day. We are currently reading Once by Morris Gleitzman and are thoroughly enjoying it.
Our reading corner has been popular this year, all of books are focused on the author Louis Sachar.
We enjoyed Once so much, we asked Miss Lodge for the series; we can’t wait to read more
This half term we are focusing on Holes by Lewis Sachar.
We have written a diary from Stanley’s point of view, here is a sample of some of our work:
We have created some information posters to encourage people to come to Camp Green Lake
We helped Stanley to plan his escape! We had some great ideas and used the knowledge we already had of the book to create our final pieces.
Our Science topic this half term is all about the heart! We’ve created some diagrams to show the key vocabulary we have learnt.
We are looking at our local environment within this term’s geography lessons. We have been for a walk around our local community to identify the dangers that are around. We also looked at the amenities that are on offer.
We completed a whole school survey to see how children commuted to school. Here are our results:
At Worth Valley Primary School, safeguarding is of paramount importance. We are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children and staff in school.
