Well done to everyone who participated in the elections for the different roles, there were some very impressive speeches!
Year 6 had a fantastic time at PGL which was full of exciting and challenging activities. The adults would like to take this opportunity to commend the children on their behaviour and attitude during the trip as they worked together throughout the week and developed a strong bond. There will be an assembly shortly to share the childrens’ experiences with parents and the school.

The children worked with enthusiasm throughout the morning and their designs showed much creativity.
Congratulations to Matthew L and Isobel who won the Year 6 challenge. The winning design was chosen on the pair’s ability to work together, solve problems, produce a working model and communicate ideas to each other and the judge. Their design was fantastic and was a true reflection of their hard work and determination. A photo of the winning pair’s construction will be entered with other schools into a final round to be judged later in the year.
Take a look at the photos of their finished designs

We visited the Natural History Museum as part of our work on evolution. During our visit we explored the fossils gallery (where we enjoyed seeing lots of fossils discovered by Mary Anning); discovered the story of the Earth and how life on it has evolved over millions of years; took part in an evolution workshop and visited the Human Evolution gallery. As usual, it was a pleasure to take the children out for the day, they were a credit to themselves and the school.
On return to school, the children wrote a report about the trip. Here is what Archie and Lacey had to say:
To support our learning, Year 6 went to the Natural History Museum to learn more about evolution and inheritance. We were so excited because everyone said it was truly amazing.
The first room we visited was the mammals gallery with the blue whale! It was massive! I wondered how something so colossal could fit in the ocean. It was as large as the school times five!
Next, we went straight to the fossil gallery to look at Mary Anning's work. They were amazing! My favourite was the ichthyosaur which was around 300 million years old. 300 million! Its skull was massive and the eyes were about the size of my head! WOW! Then Aiden and I went around trying to find Mary's other discoveries.
Climbing frantically towards the centre of the Earth, which was like a red-hot sphere, it portrayed itself as terrifying. I was surrounded by people murmuring and whispering about how they felt.
After that, we met someone called Simon. He split us into five groups and we were given a yellow sheet with questions we had to answer.
We had lots of fun there.
Leaving at 8:30am, Year 6 could barely contain our excitement as we piled on the coach. It was a cold, crisp Thursday morning - January 26th. As we were learning about fossils, we figured a trip to the Natural History Museum would allow us to collect more knowledge about these ancient things...
When we arrived there, we all clambered along to the fossils gallery. This amazing section had fossils from over 4 million years ago. The ichthyosaur impressed me most as it had fossils inside it - ammonite fossils! It was wonderful how they had put Mary and Joseph Annings' finds together.
Once we had finished exploring all the ancient finds, we found an escalator leading to the centre of the Earth. Travelling up the escalator was a bit nerve-wracking but, as we got higher, all those nerves just washed away as I took in all my surroundings...
Turning the corner, we were all gob-smacked as we learnt facts about the Earth and space. We spiralled round and round until we were at the end. We were greeted by Simon who then ran a workshop for us, asking us to find animals, their habitats and plants. To finish it all off, we played a game.
After a trip to the shop and lunch, we all clambered back onto the coach and thought about our amazing day!

London in the Blitz - Newspaper reports
In Year 6 this week we have tackled a week of inspirational maths. This week of activities has challenged our brains and how we think about maths. We have learnt that mistakes help our brains to grow and that thinking deeply is more important than thinking quickly. We have learnt from each other by talking and developed our reasoning skills.
