Our rehearsals for the Year 6 production are going well. We have been able to run through both Act 1 and Act 2 together and the props are looking fantastic!

Fiver Challenge

A massive well done to all our Year 6s for their enthusiasm and determination during our Fiver Challenge. You all came up with some great ideas and managed to work well in your groups to sell your products. We will be announcing the total amount made in the coming week.

Topic

We have been continuing with our new topic ‘Body Works’ and looking at the effects that different substances have on the body.

Talk Bus

The Croydon Talk Bus came to visit Year 6 this week to talk to them about current issues and transitions from primary to secondary. Everyone participated well and enjoyed the talks and activities.

Topic

Our topic about the Mystical Mayas has come to a finish this week, concluding with our short adventure stories set in the Maya period.

Fiver Challenge

We have all begun the fiver challenge. Everyone in the year group has been given £5 to start a business with. We then got into groups of 3 or 4 to pool all our money together and began researching a product to make. Once we have all our materials, we will be making our product which we intend to sell on our own stalls around the school. More details about dates and times for this to come. We’re all very excited to see how much profit we can raise!

Our Production

Rehearsals for our Year 6 production of ‘The Jungle Book’ are well underway. Props are being made, dances are being learned and we are practising on the stage as well. Date and time on final performance to follow.

Swimming

Swimming has also come to a finish now and many of our students have received certificates for achieving 5, 10, 25 or 50 metres! We’re really proud of what everyone has achieved during these 2 weeks.
