Here is our animation based on the narrative poem. 'The Highway Man' by Alfred Noyes. I'm sure you will agree that the artwork, reading and understanding shown of the themes is superb. The children have worked so hard and did brilliantly today to carry on with their assembly despite all the absences and technical difficulties! Hopefully we will be able to perform it in full next week.
Well done to all the children who brought in a photograph of themselves reading in weird and wonderful places. All the entries were fantastic but this photo was chosen as the winner because it made us all laugh and the sheep looks like he is loving the book too! Congratulations you have won a book of your choice. All the photos are displayed in our reading area so please send in a photograph if you haven't yet or if this isn't possible we'll take some around the school.

We've been studying 'The Highway Man' by Alfred Noyes and based our amazing artwork on the illustrations by Charles Keeping. We are attempting to make an animation of the narrative poem using stop motion photographs and will be sharing it in our class assembly on Friday at 10.00. In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of the artistic talents of year 6.

Congratulations to Caitlyn, Iestyn, Abigail and Molly who all got 10 out of 10 this week in their CLIC test. An extra special well done goes to Isabel, Thomas and Melissa who have had 10 out of 10 three times in a row and are moving up to the next level. Thomas is also the first child to move onto level 5. Keep up the hard work year 6! :-)
This term our topic is 'Gallery." We will be studying a range of artists, learning skills to work with different media and organising our own gallery to showcase our art work.
We are very excited as a real artist is coming into class on Tuesday to carry out a workshop with us. We will also be visiting a gallery on the 4th December before opening our own gallery.
Wow! What a fantastic first week back for year 6 with lots of improved scores.
The following children got full marks in their clic tests and their hard work has really paid off:
Kyan, Jordan, Iestyn, Isabel and Ella. Well done, keep it up!
A special mention also goes to Megan and Molly who both scored over 60 in their Big Maths scores. This is amazing and the whole class is capable of these high scores if they keep practising every night :-)
Congratulations to all the year 6 pupils who took part in the national cycling proficiency levels 1 and 2 this week. Everybody did very well and gained confidence off and on the road whilst learning lots of new skills. Nick, their instructor, praised their cycling skills and ability to listen and added that they were very well behaved and a 'credit to the school.' Well done everybody, we are all very proud of you.
