Revision packs will be sent home with all Year 6 children over Easter. Children are to complete the packs as part of their homework and return them to school on the first day back.
Please ensure children are spending some time over the Easter holidays revising for their SATs! (Week beginning Monday 13th May.)
Children should be taking regular visits to the 'TTRockstars' and 'Spelling Shed' websites - they all have logins and codes, so no excuses!

Our Trip to the Lowry Art Gallery, Salford Quays.

‘What I enjoyed best about the Lowry Art Gallery was drawing some of the pictures there. My favourite drawing was the ‘At the Match’ painting.’ Daniel

 

‘My favourite thing was going to the Blue Peter garden, because we saw someone famous - it was a very good place that I drew.’ Riley

 

‘I enjoyed when we went to Media City and drew some of the famous places where TV shows were filmed.’ Louis

 

‘The thing that made the Lowry Art Gallery so good was the picture of a man on a wall; it was only simple but there was a lot of mystery about it.’ Ryan

Our class have really enjoyed making leek and potato soup from scratch  using fresh ingredients - and tasting the results (with a little help from some of our parents).
'We added chopped up potatoes, onions,celery,leek and garlic. Our parents peeled the potatoes and then we chopped them up and added them to a bowl with the rest. I enjoyed cutting up the vegetables because at first I didnt use the knife correctly and so it was hard, but then I learned the proper tequnique and it was easy.' Thomas
 
'I really liked the soup making. We had our parents helped us with some parts then we took over. We chopped up potatoes, leek, onions (that made us tear up) and celery. My group worked as a great team, making sure we all got a turn.The soup tasted fantastic - all the making was worth it!' Daniel
Our class were amazing with their dance routine to a Queen medley at the SJB dance competition!

'The main message from today is that everyone has rights to speak out and stay safe. We all have the right to say no.' Harley
