Class 14

ACADEMIC YEAR 2018-2019

Year 6 Prom

Our year 6 leavers prom was held during the last week of term, where the children dressed in their finest outfits and danced the night away to celebrate their last few days at school.  We wish them the best of luck at their secondary schools in September.

BBC's Orchestra

Year 6 went to the Octagon to see the BBC’s Orchestra on the 18th June. The music was fantastic and the presenter made it all really fun and exciting.

Careers Talk

Class 13 & 14 were really lucky to have Lt Cdr Hollingsworth explain the different roles of the Royal Navy. She explained that her role is like the headteacher of a school, but that her students are the fighter pilots who fly all of the noisy jets around Yeovil.

Ellie told us about the exciting career opportunities that can be found within the Navy. She explained that when onboard a ship everyone is on duty all of the time, but that they get good holidays when they return. Life onboard a ship is like being in a village - lots of different people are needed to provide all that the sailors need during their time (chefs, doctors, chaplains, mechanics, engineers, postal workers, to name but a few).

Homework

We had fun sharing our California pick and mix homework!

'Inspiring Futures'

As part of our 'Inspiring Futures Programme' Y6 had a visit from Vicki Cotter who explained what her career as a barrister involves.

Road Safety visit

Class 14 had a visit from the Road Safety team and were reminded how to keep safe when crossing the roads. Stop, Look, Listen and Think!

Visit from Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Science

In science, Class 14 have been investigating 'Light' and this week they have used a light box and prisms to refract light and make rainbows. They also created coloured spinners to create 'white light'.

Red Nose Day fun!

Otter Watercolours - Inspired by Pete the Poet

World Book Day and Pete The Poet’s visit

To help us celebrate World Book Day, we investigated the brilliant book, ‘The Lost Words’ by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris.

The book contains poems about nature and consists of words that are fading from the English language as children are spending less time outdoors discovering the wonders of nature around them.

The children explored the nature that is around the school grounds, collected word banks, listened to and performed poetry throughout the week. Furthermore, they made observational sketches, used pastels and watercolours of some of our British endangered species.

Over two days, each year group spent time with Pete The Poet who discussed the beauty of ‘The Lost Words’ and reassured them that it is ok not to understand every part of a poem, but to enjoy it for the way it makes you feel.

Sharing assemblies were held to celebrate the work and achievements created over the week.
