Year 6

Houses of Parliament Visit

On Wednesday, 8th November Year 6 went on a trip to The Houses of Parliament in Westminster.  Our day began very early (6:30 am) as we set off full of excitement and wonder at what we would see.  We arrived at 10:30, ate a quick snack and then waited to enter into the Houses of Parliament’s Education Centre.

Group 1 entered the building first and went to watch a film about how the Houses of Parliament was first formed and how it has adapted over the years.  While Group 1 watched the film, Group 2 began their tour.  After the film, Group 1 also toured the Palace of Westminster.

Musical Medley Afternoon

On Thursday 14th September, year four, five and six were treated to an exciting percussion performance by talented musician Tony Parkinson who has also performed six times for HRH Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Variety Performance.

Children and staff were treated to performance on a range of instruments including and electric drum kit which sounded just like a real one. Everyone was enthralled by the 'guess the intro' game and enjoyed perfromances which pupils could take part in.

Children said:

"It was so fun to watch."

"I liked taking part."

Natural History Museum

On Friday 19th May, a large group of Year 5 and 6 children, along with many staff and parents, had an amazing day at The Natural History Museum in London.

Just seeing the skyscrapers, London Eye, Big Ben and The Thames from the bus windows was enough to set off squeals of excitement before we even arrived.

During the day, the children were fascinated by various galleries including a life size blue whale, dinosaur skeletons, an earthquake simulator, various gems, volcanoes, biology games and of course the shop!
