Firstly, a huge well done needs to go out to all of our Year 6 pupils, not only for working extremely hard in the lead up to SATs, but also for showing enthusiasm and commitment for the rest of the Summer Term. Following the SATs tests, we had a final last push on our writing to ensure our writing portfolios were complete and the children worked very hard during this time as well.
As part of our Science topic, we visited the Natural History Museum to take part in a workshop on evolution. We took part in some practical activities exploring what evolution is, and why and how it happens. We had a chance to find evidence of evolution within the galleries and also explored the Volcanoes and Earthquakes section, which links to our learning in Geography.
As a reward for our hard work, the children have enjoyed a number of trips to Chessington, Stratford Picturehouse, Nando’s and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis centre to watch the Great Britain vs Germany hockey match. They also participated in two weeks of swimming lessons and made immense progress. We have further developed our performing arts skills when preparing for our performance Shakespeare Rocks, which was extremely successful! The Year 6 Prom was a brilliant celebration of the end of their Curwen journey.
