    School Life


    Summer 1

    Storytelling is an ancient and valuable art that extends around the globe. In Year 6, we were able to develop storytelling talents, apply the techniques of storytelling and perform a story a Greek Myth for the Year 1 children.  




    On Friday 26thApril, we had our third and final visit from a local Safer School Officer. PC Carolyn McGuigan taught us about her role in secondary schools across Ealing and how she helps to reduce the risk of young people getting drawn into crime or antisocial behaviour.   Her visits covered a range topics but focused on peer pressure and personal safety.

    Spring 2


    Every fortnight, we are welcomed by our neighbouring secondary school, Cardinal Wiseman. We are invited to visit their library and explore the vast range of books on offer. The library is well placed to help children develop an interest in reading.  Children access a wide range of books for them to enjoy, and introduces them to the book borrowing habit. The students can keep the books for two weeks and then they will be back to swap them for something new and exciting.

    Spring 1

    On Tuesday the 5th of February, half of 6W’s class went to a care home called The Meadows. We met many people there. We listened to their stories and played some games with them. We a man called Ted who fought in WW2. We also met Jimmy and Phyllis (two lovely people from Ireland) they loved to talk to us. It was a nice atmosphere there, it was peaceful and quiet; everyone was happy.

    We had our class assembly this term based on our learning around the topic of Evolution and inheritance. We had great fun performing short scenes depicting the lives of Charles Darwin and Mary Anning. Everyone enjoyed doing the Fossil Rock too.

    Year 6 spent an enjoyable day at the natural history museum on 23rd January. We had a workshop booked where we learned about Charles Darwin's theory of evolution studing the beaks of different finches. We explored cabinets full of fossils uncovered by Mary Anning who we had been learning about in class. This really is an amazing museum and we all recommend you visit. 

    Autumn 2

    On 14th November 2018, Mrs Bell brought in a WW1 family heirloom to share with the class as we are currently studying the World War. The item was an original WW1 diary written by her husband’s grandfather which has since been published into a top-selling book across the world. The diary shares Edwin Campion Vaughan’s experiences during the war and we were able to read some of the original. A huge thank you to Mrs Bell.

    Heathrow coding challenge

    On Monday 1st October, Year 6 participated in the Heathrow Primary School Challenge.  The challenge has been established to inspire the next generation to consider a career at the airport.

    The challenge provided the children with an enjoyable way to develop their coding skills, apply social and personal skills and encouraged team work and communication skills.

    Osmington Bay

    Our Year 6 children and staff spent a wonderful five days at Osmington Bay PGL Activity Centre.  During their stay they took part in many exciting challenges.  The children had the opportunity to experience a wide range of sporting activities such as archery, rifle shooting, abseiling and the zip wire. 

    This was an opportunity for the children to participate in activities that promoted team work and helped to build confidence away from home. Staff and children thoroughly enjoyed working together in a different environment and allowed children to form positive bonds with their new teachers and peers. 

    A very rewarding and tiring week for everyone!

    Welcome back 

    Welcome back everyone to year 6 - we've got so many things to look forward to this term!

    We will all be learning so much - we have a great topic to start the year all about WW2 and will be visiting RAF Hendon in November. We also have a workshop booked for you all in September where you will learn new coding skills provided by a team from Heathrow airport.

    For those going to Osmington Bay, we are busy making preparations for your trip and I think we might be as excited as you are!

    Mrs Williams
