Class 6 Learning

We decided to spend Friday at the end of SATs week enjoying some fresh air and appreciating being outside!
We drew, wrote poems, took photos, played hide and seek and spent time listening to bird song!
Sometimes it’s good to just spend time outdoors!




Congratulation Year 6! You have completed all your SATs papers.

Bacon buttie breakfasts, sweets and ice creams got us through!

Well done all of you.  Out into the country tomorrow to celebrate!

Year 6 had a great day cycling from Riccall to York. We picnicked at Rowntree Park and played on the equipment before coming home for the end of the day. We cycled 20km in total and everyone was great!

Well done to all of Year 5 and 6 for their amazing work today showing the rest of school and visiting Parents, Grandparents and Governors their Viking Museum. We learned so much from each other and ate loads of viking bread. Thank you for making it so interactive and fun!


At Dig, we learned how to use Viking weapons and how they protected themselves with their shields.
Some of us learned how to use axes!
The Vikings were desperate to find new land, new belongings and slaves! Their boats were so well designed they could even go up rivers. At Jorvik , we learned that the Vikings made York their capital city. Jorvik is built on the site of an archaeological discovery.



We celebrated the Chinese New Year by sampling different teas, writing our names in Chinese script using Chinese paint brushes and ink made from coal. We also made  wheels showing how each year celebrates a different animal. 2019 is the year of the pig
Congratulations to Isaac and Joe for winning their tournament in the Hambleton Team to be the North Yorkshire Winners!
Our football team were runners up in the North Yorkshire Small School Tournament. Well done all of you!
One of our “past”pupils-Toby Price-came in to talk about his experience as a Pentathlon Olympic Team Member for the Youth Olympics. He took part in the Games in Argentina earlier this year, and is now 17th in the world! He is an inspiration to the children and showed them a great Power Point of life in the Olympic Village and his results after each event.
We had a lovely day Skating on Thursday as a way to celebrate getting our Bronze “Duke of Alne” Award. We had a well-earned Hot Chocolate afterwards and were joined by a surprise visitor-Mr Platt! It was lovely to see him again!
Great end to a busy week ! Santa Jumpers to raise money for a good cause! We have had a busy week of Panto watching and Panto performing!


Well done to all of Years 4,5,and 6 for putting on a brilliant panto at the Galtres Centre and for the children at school in our hall. Especial “Well Dones” to the Year 6 children who took on all the parts and performed so well!

It’s always a busy time of year at school at this time of year so I’m so pleased with how well they are all coping with the different activities.

Everybody in school has had some Judo practice with Dan.The children learned how to throw their opponent and land safely!

If they are interested in taking up Judo, then Dan is going to run a group at the Scout Hut in Easingwold on Saturday mornings starting in a few weeks. Flyers have been sent out.

Year 6 have shared their Science projects with the whole school when they did a Science Assembly on Tuesday. This month’s value is confidence and I’m so pleased that some children have grown so much in confidence recently-singing in assembly and talking in front of the school.

The whole class recited “Dulce et Decorum Est” in Assembly on Friday .


We had such fun at Magna in Sheffield on Wednesday!
We found out about Earth, Wind, Fire and Water-and had fun doing so!
SCIENCE FAIR YEAR 5 and 6-what a great afternoon and how much we learned from each other!
Look at our new hoodies! Everyone really deserves these for working so hard as Young Leaders! We have had dance classes, ICT Club, DIY Club, Reception Disco Club, Drama and lots of sport!

This Year have really been great at thinking of others and giving up their free time to run these clubs during their break times! Well done!

Well done to all our Sports Teams this week! The boys’ football never lost a match over the 3 nights they played at the Easingwold Cluster and our Girls’ Netball and Football teams also played extremely well. Thank you to Mr. Easton for the lovely new kits from Premier Football!




Harvest Festival-After our Harvest Festival in School,Year 6 helped to load all the food into cars to be distributed  by the Salvation Army in York.
We’ve had a busy week this week working on our “Wonder” story and making papier mache masks.
What a great start to the year! The Buddy bags were a great success and Reception loved listening to the stories. 
All of Year 6 have started the year so keen and enthusiastic-lots of Young Leader’s Clubs have started already and Librarians and House Captains are taking their roles very seriously indeed!
