November 2018

Year 6 went on a magical exploration of all things poetry at the National Poetry Library at the Southbank Centre. Activities that we took part in were a word scavenger hunt- finding vocabulary in books that inspired us, looking at poetry on paving slabs (the words of William Wordsworth are carved into the promenade next to the Thames) and creating our own description of the view from inside the building looking at the London skyline as well as outside the building as we stood next to the Golden Jubilee Bridge. We used all of the language that we collected to create our own poems which we then had the chance to perform to one another. Not only did we get the chance to write, we also got the chance to explore the books of poetry housed by the library and listen to recordings of poems being performed. All in all it was a truly inspiring day.

September 2018 - Year 6 Team Building

Year 6 took part in a very exciting Team Building afternoon on 13.09.18. They were put into teams and started on 7 different activities. When the time was up for the first activity they moved onto the next activity until they had completed all 7 of them. They had to discuss, plan and complete each activity with their team, and then they evaluated what they could have done better and what went well. They all had a very enjoyable, fun afternoon together.

The aim was to build better communication and to develop planning and problem solving with their peers. Through activities like these the children have a better understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses, which will help them to work even better together in the future and support each other. It is important for them to continue building and developing these skills as they continue their journey into becoming young adults.
