Visitors in Year 6

We have been very lucky to have some special visitors in Year 6 this week. As part of our transition work to get ‘secondary ready’ we have been visited by Mr. Allman and Mrs. Mordey from Ponteland Community High School to complete some work around friendship and goal-setting.

We were also visited by Mrs. Crosby who came to talk to us about Candle Mass in our R.E. lesson and we made some (rather yummy) edible candles to take home! 😊




Nautical Non-Fiction…

In year 6, we have been familiarising ourselves with the tragedy of the Titanic, which is the historical setting for our new class novel, ‘Kaspar Prince of Cats’ by Michael Morpurgo. We have been researching the disaster using our non-fiction library books and as we’ve been so fascinated by this topic, we even created our own non-fiction booklets, complete with all the key features!

A Christmas Carol @ Northern Stage

Year 6 had a wonderful time at Northern Stage this week, watching an amazing adaptation of ‘A Christmas Carol.’ We were simply astounded by the set design, costume, choreography, singing and amazing acting! We are currently drafting our own theatre reviews of this enchanting performance – watch this space!

The performance was a fantastic treat after completing our book study on this classic  novel. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our study of Dickens and our Victorian unit of work.
