On Thursday 13th September, Year 6 visited Harry Potter Studios in London. The trip was linked to their learning in English where they had had the opportunity to write character descriptions, diary entries and newspaper reports about the different events in the book. The children thoroughly enjoyed the trip and said that they would definitely go again if they could.


On Tuesday 25th September, Philosophers were excited to present their assembly to the rest of the school and their parents. It focussed on the grammatical skills needed to ensure that the writing the children produce in year 6 is of the highest standard. We would like to thank those parents who came to watch and support the children.


This half term, every Thursday afternoon, we have welcomed members of the Leicester Riders' Basketball team in to school to coach both year six classes. The sessions have focussed on improving skills and team work. The children have benefited greatly from the expertise of the players and have improved their skills on the court.


The week (commencing 19th November) was the start of our Humanities week. Each class has focussed on a famous woman from history and year 6 have been studying Anne Frank. The children have been fascinated to learn all about the life of Anne and have presented their work in a variety of different ways, from writing about her to creating meaningful pieces of art work. The children have shown great empathy skills when discussing her life and we have been impressed with the thoughtful questions that the children have asked throughout the sessions.
