Year 6 had a great day out at Westinghouse Springfield last week learning about electricity. The children made circuits and thought about electrical safety. The class then had a tour of the site where fuel is manufactured for nuclear power stations, which was very interesting.

We are getting excited about books 

Year 6 were getting excited about books this morning. We set goals for our reading over the year. 

Super sharing

Showbie shows us the way for feedback! 

The year six children enjoyed finding out their feedback via the showbie app today on their ipad. 

Hooray! We are back! 

Year 6 were delighted to be back at school today. We really enjoyed looking at how we are going to improve over the year and what we want our classroom to be like.
