W.B. 16.05.22 - Maths - Escape rooms


This week, the children took part in a Maths Escape Room and then created their own in pairs for their classmates to try to escape! The clues were multi-step questions relating to number and place value, the four operations, fractions, decimals, percentages and measure. Well done to all those that successfully escaped showing excellent teamwork and perseverance skills!

After completing the SATs, a party was very much deserved for the Year 6s.

Every single pupil rose to the challenge of the tests with courage, resilience and perseverance and we are super proud of their efforts not only this week, but also in the build up during revision lessons and for those who also participated in the booster groups.

It has been lovely to see everyone arriving at school with a positive attitude and we have been impressed by their calmness and smiles throughout the week.

Well done Year 6! Great job!


PGL March 2022

Day 5 at PGL

Please see below the photos from our last day at PGL. The pupils have enjoyed: orienteering, challenge course, climbing, abseiling, zipwire and a coastal walk. We finished our trip with group photos outside Bawdsey Manor and a delightful lunch ready for our coach journey home. The adults and children have thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We are so proud of all the skills they have developed and life-long memories they have made!

Day 4 at PGL

Please see below the photos from our last full day at PGL. The pupils have enjoyed: problem solving, the giant swing, sensory trail, climbing, buggy building and the zip wire. We have also enjoyed a visit to the shop to buy some souvenirs and treats, and the weather has stayed lovely! We are now looking forward to some songs and stories around the campfire to enjoy our final evening activity. 

Day 3 at PGL

Below are some of the photos of the children completing a range of today's activities including buggy building, challenge course, trapeze, abseiling, orienteering and sensory trail. The groups continued to apply learnt skills to today's activities and many challenged themselves to go out of their comfort zones. The evening finished with a game of 'real-life' Cluedo after discovering that the manor's dragon had disappeared! Having located the dragon, we are now resting for another fun-filled day. 

Day 2 at PGL

Below are some photographs from the activities we completed today including: archery, climbing, coastal walk, abseiling, buggy building and the giant swing. The groups have worked really well in their teams and lots have faced their fears successfully. The weather today has been stunning but chilly, and we are now in our rooms warming up before we get ready for Ambush! 

Day 1 at PGL

After arriving safely at Bawdsey Manor, we settled into our rooms (see photos below), before the fun began! We had a tour of the grounds before taking part in some outdoor games. The children enjoyed the selection of food on offer for dinner, including dessert, and now we're in our dorms getting ready for Wacky Races this evening! 

'Biome in a Bag'

On Tuesday 16th, the children experienced life during WW2. During the day, they took part in a number of activities which included: building an air-raid shelter, looking at artefacts and building a plane. The children learnt a lot from the day and we will be using this knowledge to inspire our future Topic lessons. 

Anderson Shelters

We have been super busy this half term in Year 6! Mr Little and I would like to say a big well done to all pupils in completing their first round of mock SATs. Below are some photographs of the art we have been working on. We have learnt how to draw a face and practised different facial expressions. Come back soon to see photos of our model Anderson shelters!
