Class News – 30.6.23

Another busy week of rehearsals, your children are working extremely hard to perfect their roles ready for your performance next week. Thank you to all those who have brought in their costumes already; just another reminder a dress rehearsal is going ahead on Monday so please make sure if you haven’t already your costume is in school Monday 3rd July.  It’s going to be a brilliant show – make sure you’re there!

Our performances are at 10am and 2pm on Thursday 6th July – so grab your allocated pair of tickets now to avoid disappointment. From next week, any spares will be opened up for Y6 families who would like another relative to attend.

In Maths, we have continued to look at our future and the aspirations we have. All children have begun to research their top three ideal jobs; they have identified their hourly pay or annual salary, identified their taxable pay and the amount of tax paid. These are tricky calculations, but each child has remembered their steps to success and have loved discovering what their future could hold for them in terms of a wage. Next week, we will be tackling bills. If you are able to please discuss what possible bills the children may face in adulthood e.g. utility bills, transport costs, childcare, food etc.

In English, we wrote poems about our individual identity and performed them. Then, we created groups to produce a shared identity poem with peers we have things in common with. Each group performed in a Poetry Slam and were amazing – actions, dictation and passion. Well done Year 6 😀

We have continued to study Pop Art and the children were given the task to identify one thing which showed their identity – we wonder if you can figure out the thing your child has chosen…

In science, we continued our work on understanding light. This week we focussed on understanding shadows and tried to investigate if there is a pattern in the size of a shadow and how close an object is to a light source. We used torches, rulers and paper to check how big a shadow was, when  light was shone onto an opaque object.

Our PE lesson this week saw us enjoy a game of rounders with our friends in year 5.  We showed great team spirit and really tried our best for our team mates. 

This is the last reminder for nursery/reception photographs. We have had a lot emailed in already but for those who haven’t yet, please could we have these next week. We really want each child to be a part of our special project.


We would like to wish Sophie a lovely weekend celebrating her birthday 🙂


Fleur for improved self-belief and confidence in her role in the production and Harry C for setting a wonderful example in class and in rehearsals. We’re very proud of you both!
