Life in Year 6!

Take a look at all of the wonderful things that have been happening in the classroom...

I-Rock Assembly 

We had an AMAZING assembly to end the half term from the I-Rock Company. They came in to teach us about music and as a school we made our own band! We also sang and got involved in some songs that they sang for us which was like a fantastic concert! We had a great time! 


We had a visit from the Eco-Workshop which focused on how we can recycle and reuse materials. We made notebooks using cardboard, reused maps and recycled paper. The children really enjoyed this and also liked looking at the recycled/reused objects that had been created from items such as recycled drinks cartons, sweet wrappers and can lids. 


SATs are over! Let's celebrate!

The SATs are done and the children worked SO hard! We had a little celebration of Crazy Bingo and some party snacks to help us celebrate! You worked so hard Year 6, well done! 


SATs have started!

The children have blown us away already with their maturity, hardwork and drive! This morning started with a SATs breakfast for some of the children and then after some revision, we did our SPAG and spelling papers. All grammar is out of the way now, how amazing! The children then had a rest break and the squash and biscuits were brought out, we had a good debrief about the paper and the children were all very happy. What a result, roll on the next one and let's smash it!

Library Time 

Year 6 went to the library, as they do every Monday, and enjoyed some peace and quiet with a good book for half an hour. This was a lovely time to get lost in a good book!

Year 6 Assembly on Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policy 


Year 6 did an amazing assembly on the school's behaviour and anti-bullying policy and they did an amazing job of sharing the contents of the policies and teaching the rest of the school about these important topics! Well done Year 6, you did us very proud!

PE - GYMNASTICS - Using the apparatus


The children explored flight and dismounting from the apparatus in our PE lesson. We were so impressed with the children's skills so see for yourself all of the amazing work they showed!


WOW! What a day Year 6 have had for their very last World Book Day at St Rose!!!!

We started with an amazing assembly and costume parade where Year 6 rocked their costumes and dance moves as the moved down the catwalk!

We then read with our reading buddies from Year 2 which was so lovely as the children got to share their favourite stories with eachother and they love this! 


We got creative and made some paper origami bookmarks based on our favourite characters and creative designs! 


As we were problem solvers for the day (our theme for World Book Day), we had a crime to solve: 'The world famous and mega expensive quill belonging to Robert Burns, a famous poet, was stolen from the National Library of Scotland'. 

Lots of clues and problems needed solving to complete this escape room task so Year 6 were the best people for the job! 


Throughout the day, the children completed little scavenger hunts about authors and books and they had to find out a fact about them for their name to be entered into a raffle! The person chosen from the raffle got a WORLD BOOK DAY prize: a exciting book and a big bar of chocolate to enjoy while reading their new book!! Our winner was Emmanuella!


To top off the day, we had a lovely cup of scrumptious hot chocolate and cookie with a good book! 


Online Safety Workshop


During online safety week, the children participated in an online workshop which looked at keeping things safe online and how we can conduct ourselves when being online. The children had to pretend to be an avatar and use freeze frames for this. This was good fun!

Theatre Trip to see The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe


We went on a very special trip to the REP to see The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. This was a lot of fun and the children absolutely loved the show! What a great day!

PE - Dance 

During our PE lesson, we focused on two different jumps: a stag leap and a rebound jump. The children learnt these really well and incorporated them into their dance routine! They did really well! 

Christmas performance 

The children did their very last Christmas performance at St Rose and did they smash it...YES they did! They absolutely sang their hearts out and did amazing with their own section in the Born in the Hay song! Well done Year 6, you also made me cry, it was so wonderful!

Going to see Santa

We had a wonderful treat before we broke up where we saw Santa and all of the children received a present off him. This was a lovely way to end the half term and start the festivities!

Lenten Retreat Day

The children had an amazing day with Dan and Emily where they came to speak to us about Jesus being the light and how we can share his light with others! It was a really lovely day! 



Forest School Wk 5

The children really enjoyed forest school this week especially when they were helping to build the fire and try and strike the flint and steel to light the fire. 

The children also got musical and created this wonderful performance about forest school!

Forest School Wk4

This week the children really enjoyed getting creative during forest school. They started making a pine cone wreath for our outdoor prayer space, worked as a team to build an obstacle course and starting building a large den! Some children even used the tools to help to repair the benches around the fire circle!

Forest School Wk 3

In our session this week, the children explored the different ways they could make a den and used their team work skills to do this. They also did some bug hunting and some of the children created nail art using tools such as a hammer and nails!
