Year 6 Leavers’ Treat

FOSS arranged a super last treat for the Year 6 that involved a silly string battle, an ice-cream from the ice-cream van and a disco. The brilliant Mrs Sykes made a fab frame for their photo booth! What great fun we had and lasting memories were created!

Term 5


Day four completed! With full tummies from our two-course breakfast, our groups set off to take part in either rock climbing or caving. It was wonderful to witness our children pushing themselves to try new things whilst tackling their own challenges and goals. The children have taken teamwork to a new level this week, building their confidence to work collaboratively and stepping in to offer encouragement to aid others in overcoming hurdles.

Day three completed! Our busiest day yet full of caving, canoeing and a wet dingle descent! Now that all groups have completed canoeing, we can say that we were successful with no-one capsizing (but lots of jumping in at the end)! The caving groups were equally successful with many children facing their fears with the small spaces and darkness. The children are being brilliant and making themselves and us incredibly proud! We are excited for our final two days.

Day two completed! We started our day full of beans ready for breakfast. Two of ours groups embarked on a canoeing adventure whilst the other two challenging themselves with rock climbing. All groups were recognised for their determination and seizing opportunities to push themselves out of their comfort zones. The lack of sleep hit us on our return home, but not for long … Curry and pudding to the rescue!! This allowed us to complete the evening activity of orienteering around Plas Pencelli’s grounds with just as much energy as this morning. We hope you enjoy looking through our successes today.

Day one completed! We arrived in just over two hours with the sun shining the whole way. The sunshine stayed with us all day for our adventure walk where we got very muddy and very wet. After pizza for dinner and pancakes for pudding, we took part in some problem solving activities including a tense egg-drop competition. Here we are in action…

Term 4

What an excellent term we have had! We thoroughly enjoyed reading Beetle Boy and creating our own newspaper articles and a missing person narrative inspired by M.G.Leonard. In Science, there were lots of fun and interesting practicals such as dissecting flowers to study their parts in more details and using a range of different ‘beaks’ to work out how bird beaks have adapted over time. We developed our skills in PE where we were learning how to play seated volleyball! Take a look at the pictures of us below!

Term 3

We have had a busy term! Each class loved reading Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll and completing letters and writing a story based on this (and our World War 2 learning from History last term). We also enjoyed learning all about North and South America in Geography, learning how to use tactics in our realPE unit, composing our own piece of Music, taking part in activities linked to Children’s Mental Health Week and engaging with prayer spaces. See pictures of us below enjoying Term 3!
