Important information for Year 6s 

Walking Home

If you intend to allow your child to walk home on their own or leave the classroom on their own to meet you at the gate, we must have written permission. Forms are outside the School Office.


Mobile Phones

I understand that as children get older and more independent they are more likely to keep a mobile phone on their person for safety and security. Phones should be taken to the School Office at the start of the day and collected at the end. If children keep their phone in their bag, it is their responsibility if it gets damaged or lost. If I hear a phone going off or see it in class, it will be taken from them and kept til the end of the day.  For more information and a permission slip, please see our Mobile Phone policy

We've been to the Globe Theatre to learn more about Shakespeare and his plays


Highgate Woods

Year 6 went to Highgate Woods and created some landscape art based on a school value.  Their artwork was inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy who only works in natural landscapes and with natural materials.   Like the artist, the children had to adapt their ideas and efforts depending on the materials they found in the woods.  The finished products were quite stunning!  However, what was even more impressive was their ability to work in teams, listen and support each other and eloquently reflect on their efforts.  As Lucas said’ We have all been able to pull together as one great team!’   Here are some of the images and accompanying comments!   Mrs P Brady.  For more information take a look here.
