We have had a special week this week and 6 of our year 6s have been to visit their new secondary schools. Year 4 have come up to see their new classroom and year 5 have shown that they can be very responsible as the new year 6s.
Year 6 have also been to the donkey sanctuary to learn life skills.
As well as all that we are very busy rehearsing our end of term play - 'Alice in Wonderland' - phew!
Inference at Chudleigh Knighton.
This week, Alice, Ethan, Rebecca and Daniel attended a reading day at Chudleigh Knighton school. Here are their reports of the day:
Our day at Chudleigh Knighton
On Tuesday the 24th of April, Chudleigh Knighton held a large activity for four children from our school. Each year six got to take part in a range of fun and exciting activities. We read a short paragraph of the book Smith and learnt how to read between the lines to find out more information. We talked with other schools and worked together to find out more about Smith. I enjoyed reading the text and it was a great day. We wrote down words we didn’t understand and searched the meaning. We got to have biscuits too! The day was extremely fun as we got to learn more about different schools in our community and we also got to take home a copy of Smith. Thank you Chudleigh Knighton!!

On Tuesday 24th April 2018 four children from year six went to Chudly knighton for a deep reading day. At the deep reading day we looked at sections from a book called SMITH and we had to use inference to work out who or what SMITH is. In the end me and my group worked out that SMITH is a 12 year old boy who is also a pickpocket .The other year sixes and I enjoyed the deep reading day and leant a lot.
Yr5/6 were treated to a fantastic forensic science workshop where they measured the growth of maggots to deduce how long they had been at a crime scene, took and studied fingerprints and went on to investigate a crime with 32 suspects. A huge thank you to Mrs West for organising this for us.
Everyone turned up bright and early every day to partake in our now annual SAT's Breakfast for Year 6.
The children chose their menu: variety pack cereals, crumpets, mini pancakes, strawberry jam, honey apple and orange juice (no bits!).
By the end of the week the 14 Year 6's had consumed 62 boxes of mini cereals, 48 crumpets and 60 pancakes!! The breakfast enabled them to relax, eat heartily and prepare together for the tests ahead.
On Wednesday 24th May KS2 went to the science museum at Bristol. Year 5/6 took part in a theme day about forensic science where moulds were made of our fingers for finger printing, we investigated the science of DNA, looked at clues left at a crime scene and solved a crime using our newly gained forensic knowledge and skills. During our lunch break, we had time to explore the various interactive activities using our special barcoded wristbands.
