PE and Outdoor Games

For PE, children should wear black shorts or leggings, white tee-shirt, bare feet.

For outdoor games, children should wear their full PE kit with pumps or trainers.

Children are not allowed to wear jewellery for PE, dance or games lessons. Children with long hair should tie their hair back and head-scarfs should be tucked in.

Homework

Homework is given out on a Wednesday and should be returned to school the following Monday.

Arts Initiative

Every year the Year 6 classes take part in the Arts Project and this year the topic is Macbeth by William Shakespeare. As part of this project the children will research William Shakespeare, research the story of Macbeth, study the script and explore the language. They will also produce art work connected to Macbeth and will learn relevant dances and songs and finally they will take part in a drama production.

Previous work has included The Tempest, Richard III, WW1 - Life in the Trenches, Lead up to WW1, The Reformation, Titanic.

Educational Trips

Cheshire Show

As part of our enrichment activities, Year 6 recently visited the Cheshire Show which provided them with tremendous learning opportunities in a fun, interesting and interactive way.

In addition to seeing livestock, poultry, horses and learning about the rural way of life, including traditional country crafts and past times, the show enabled the children to understand the journey and economics of food from ‘Plough to Plate’. We visited the Sainsbury’s Agri-Centre which is designed to educate children on how our food is produced and shows the journey from producer to retailer.
