All the Year 6 children are in our class, and some of the Year 5 children. Our teacher is Mr Amor and our teaching assistant is Mrs Heath. Although we have to work hard on test preparation to be ready for the SATS in this class, our teachers make sure that we still have lots of great activities and topics to do so that we enjoy our learning.
Our theme for the early part of the summer term will be on Newspapers – a very wide topic that we can shape as we work through it. We also lead worship in this term, and support groups of younger children as they learn how to lead worship for the whole school. There are plenty of end of term activities to take part in, sports activities, trips, Leavers events at the cathedral and other places and our end of year restaurant for our parents and the Leavers’ Assembly. We shall be very busy!
The theme for last term centred around Volcanoes – we learnt a lot about the geography and geology of our world as we studied this topic. We made hats suitable for sale in a tourist shop at the foot of a volcano, and completed lots of different texts on the topic – from adventure stories, through to information texts and reports on our design projects.

We are expected to set a really good example to the rest of the school since we are the oldest in school. We also have to carry out various responsibilities to help keep the school running efficiently. We help to organise Collective Worship, run stalls in the fayres, look after younger children when we walk to church, help with organisation of sports day, Wake and Shake and many other things. We also prepare ourselves to move to secondary school which is a great adventure.
