On shuffle up day we found out what our new Year 6 pupils were made of by giving them a challenge! 
 
The focus was TEAMWORK!
 
Check out these photos to see how they got on.
 
As part of our Geography topic on comparing localities in the UK and France, Year 6 have been learning to read grid references and work out distances using map scales. 
 
We had a great day in Glastonbury as part of our Geography topic.  The sky was clear and the views were fantastic from Glastonbury Tor. We used out ordnance survey maps to identify human and physical features of the land and learnt lots about medieval times at Glastonbury Abbey. 
Art trip to Clifton Downs
 
As part of our studies on the artist Andy Goldsworthy, who creates art from the things he finds in nature,  we visited Clifton Downs to recreate out own 'art in nature'. 
 
The children produced some fantastic art work as a group and then worked in smaller groups to create their own. 
 
Check out some of their fantastic work below. 
Aspirations Day
 
We had great fun on Aspirations Day finding out about the children's aspirations for the future. 
 
We had gamers, vets. doctors, teachers, cooks and footballers to name a few. 
 
Great 'job' everyone! : )
