Tatton Park Visit -
Both Year 5 and Year 6 had the opportunity to visit Tatton Park this term, in which we learned a lot more about the life of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. The children were really well behaved and got involved in a good number of tasks - finding out all about raw materials and making clay pots, learning the skills needed for battle by looking at Anglo-Saxon weapons, and making bread.
Coming up this half term...
Circulatory System: Learning about the importance of blood, blood vessels, and the heart.
Vikings: Who were the Vikings? Where did they travel? When did they invade?
E-Safety: Staying safe on online games.
Worship: Focusing on aspects of worship across different faiths through music, art and objects.
Paul Sleem, an old friend of Aldwyn, came in on Monday to deliver his 'RESPECT' workshops with the Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. Everybody loved his sessions. We all laughed and learned a lot from him about how we can treat each other with more respect and kindness - and how that makes everyone so much more happier. This was ideal in helping us understand more 'grown-up' relationships as we move to Year 7. Many thanks to Daisy and her family who suggested this to us.
A very warm welcome to Year 5 and 6. We are really excited about the new school year and we hope you are too. We sent an information sheet home at the end of the last year with details of school meals and PE kits etc. If you have lost this, please ask for another. But anything that you are puzzled about, please let us know either by email, a message on the door or via a note in the planner.
The year has started off at a fast pace already - English and Maths lessons started on the first day and homework and spellings will be on the way soon too. We are sorting out 2 trips too: one to Daisy Nook and one to Tatton Park so letters will be sent home about these. We really enjoy the Anglo-Saxon and Viking and science topics we do this year.
Specifically for the Year 6 pupils, an information sheet about moving to Year 7, with details of your individual log in, will be sent in the next few weeks. Yes - already! Keep a look-out for the dates of open evening at schools you may be interested in.
And a letter with more details of the residential trip to Clitheroe will be on its way soon.
Please check checking the web site and the newsletters for current events etc.
And - as always - many thanks for your support. We really appreciate it.
