Year 6: Swifts

 

Welcome to Swifts Class

Here you will find lots of useful information about our class and our curriculum. Please feel free to browse all of the different links and enjoy all of the exciting moments from our year captured on camera!

Be sure to return soon as we update our pages on a regular basis.

Spring term is short but busy!

 

We've already had lots going on as well as learning about the Ancient Greeks in school.  Our trip to LECA was a great success and gave the children a chance to find out more about life at college.  We took part in problem solving lessons, wrote sonnets and some of the children got to try photography.  More transition work will take place during the summer term.

 

We've also visited Anglia Ruskin University as part of their 'Reach for the Stars' work on raising aspirations.  We had a wonderful day finding out more about life as a student by carrying out interviews and touring the campus.  The new science block was particularly impressive and inspired lots of people to think about a career in forensic science.  In the afternoon, we worked in groups to design our own universities before presenting our ideas in a real lecture theatre!  The children were, as always, a real credit to the school: polite, thoughtful and enthusiastic.

 

A nice surprise after doing some assessments, was a visit from the folk group, The Young'Uns.  They sang and told stories - with some help from us!  We also had a go at rapping which they recorded and played bac to us.  It was lots of fun!

 

There will be lots more exciting things happening in the spring term and a good way to stay more up-to-date is by looking at our twitter account: @LCPS07

Useful Information:

Our PE days are:

  • Thursday (gymnastics)
  • Friday (hockey)

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on these days.  Please ensure that ear-rings are removed and that long hair is tied up on these days.  It would be very helpful if all items of clothing could be named.

Cooking Club

It was lovely to join Swifts Class for their final session of Cooking Club. They were making bread and butter pudding and it was great to see them working together, following the recipe and navigating the kitchen.  We are very lucky to have been able to use the fantastic facilities at LECA.  I'm sure the children will agree that it was much easier than dashing between the classroom and the kitchen and trying to do the washing up for 20 in one sink!  A huge thank you to Mrs Cameron and Mrs Wicker for giving up their time and running such a successful club.  I do hope the children have enjoyed it and that they continue to cook at home - I am always happy to try some of their work!
