Year 6 Visit to RAF Hendon
On Thursday 26th September Year Six dressed as evacuees and visited RAF Hendon where they travelled back in time to November 1940, when the Blitz was at its peak. They met a strict and knowledgeable School Master, braved an air raid by sheltering under school desks and used pen and ink successfully. It was a fantastic trip and all the children came away with an enhanced understanding of Britain's role during this significant period of our history.

General message - On Monday 27th the children will be creating their shelters as part of a DT project. We have spoken to the children about this in class and they have had time to plan. Could they please remember to bring in any extra resources that they will need to build it on this day.  For clarity, we have lots of resources at school such as cardboard, clay, Mod Roc, pieces of wood, card, tools (including glue guns) and some textiles. Many thanks.

 Reading information

In Year Six, we encourage independent readers and the expectation is that pupils read every day. It is your child's responsibility to choose either a book from home or the classroom to have in school. We recommend that they choose a variety of genre. They are required to record the details in a class reading folder which is periodically checked to ensure that their choices are both suitable and challenging. We will be assessing all of the children over the next few weeks to ensure that they are reading at a suitable level.
