Summer 2

Friday 23rd July

 

What a terrific bunch of kids. We've had a brilliant year, it's been a pleasure to work with them, and I wish them all the very best for high school. Well done, Year 6 - you should be very proud of yourselves. We even won the final Circle of Fitness! :-D

 

Watch the video below for when Miss Cowling and Mr Burke bring the element of surprise...

Friday 16th July

 

We've had a tremendous week in Year 6, with Forest School, Circle of Fitness, the poetry of Robert Frost, pentomino investigation in maths, leaf identification - even rainbows in the classroom! The end of the school year is approaching, the sun is out, and we're getting the most out of every day - we have even achieved international fame, gaining recognition for our maths work on the Nrich website! :-)

Friday 2nd July

 

It's been a brilliantly active week in Year 6, with the Circle of Fitness, an 'Olympics' competition, and some highly committed dodgeball. Just look at the determination from the competitors!

It's been an assessment week this week, and Year 6 have absolutely excelled themselves - truly, a terrific end to Key Stage 2 for this wonderful group of children. We have also been out on Forest School with Miss Cowling building dens!

Friday 18th June

 

It's the end of the Waverley Literature Festival, and what a week we've had! Amongst other things, the children have:

 

  • Written and illustrated stories
  • Performed with a trained actor in a Shakespeare scene
  • Adapted Shakespearean verse for a modern setting
  • Created original graphic novels from doodles
  • Composed and performed original scripts based on the class novel
  • Written and performed raps with Rappaman Donavan Christopher
  • Read a published novel by a local author and written questions for him
  • Played writing and spelling games, and competed in a book quiz
  • Researched writing as a career
  • Written about their own lives in poetry, prose and comic book format

 

What the children have composed and performed this week has been astonishing, and every single one of them has created pieces to be proud of. A superb event for Year 6!

It's been great welcoming everyone back this week after a half-term break filled with sunshine. Year 6 have begun their last-ever half-term at Waverley in style, with their 'Leaver 2021' hoodies arriving at just the right time! The class were delighted, and the hoodies look terrific!
