After reading the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with Mr Boult, the Year 6 children were treated to an afternoon tea with Mr Tumnus to try all of the different food mentioned in the story. Have a look at the video below to see our adventure to Narnia.

As the weather is so glorious, how about taking your learning out into the garden. You could try to learn to juggle using 2 balls to start with and then move onto 3. If you don't have enough tennis balls, you could use pairs of socks or a couple of potatoes (make sure you ask your parents and practice outside). How about having a go at making a miniature garden; you could use an old tray or recycle a container - all the other items you can find in your garden. Finally why not take your pencil and paper outside and use your sketching techniques to create a fabulous piece of artwork. you could draw a flower, tree, a landscape or even part of a building. Choose something that inspires you. Enjoy and have a lovely Easter. 

The Topmarks link below has loads of great maths games to keep our brains active.

National Waterways Museum

As part of our topic on Rivers, Year 6 had a very successful trip to the National Waterways Museum in Gloucester to enrich their learning. They had a workshop on erosion and managing the ph of the water, a chance to look around the museum and also a boat trip along the canal. Many thanks to all the parent helpers for making this trip possible.
