Spring term 1 'Spotlight Awards'
Congratulations to Evie (6HA) who has won the 'Headteacher Spotlight Award' for the whole school! Evie's wonderful Mayan mask was chosen out of the finalists who won 'Spotlight Awards' within each of the year groups.
Congratulations to our four 'Spotlight Award' winners who were chosen by Miss Elliott for producing 'work of the half term' in Year 6. The decision was so hard for one winner to be chosen that four were selected due to the high standards of art. Well done to Jaron (6N), Jayce (6PR), Imogen (6H) and Evie (6HA).

Year 6 work and Events
Haynes Motor Museum
Our Topic this term has been 'Tansport'. To help with our topic, we took year 6 to Haynes Motor Museum to learn all about the history of transport.
A lot of our work this term has been inspired by Berlie Doherty's modern classic - Street Child. This gripping adventure is based on the true story of an orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children's refuge.
Year 6 studied 4 countries over the week. 6PR studied India, 6H looked at Australia, 6N focused on Germany and 6Ha were inspired by Spain. It was an amazing week packed with food tasting, research projects, art and music.
We have been learning how to plan fair tests. We have been coming up with our own questions, and then finding ways of investigating them. So far, we have used balloons, magnets, paper clips, newton meters, paper, metal, wood, tin foil, water, bottles and much more in our experiments. We've been very busy!
We have been improving our fitness through Boxercise, Street Dance and Boot Camp. Our teamwork and ball skills have been improved by learning how to play Tag Rugby.
