A Packed Hall for the Year 6 Leavers Play

Year 6 put on a polished performance of their musical production which brought us reminders of the life of a Year 6 child - trips, PE lessons, SATs tests, registration, Kingswood... Here are some photos from their dress rehearsal.

Year 6 Trip

Year 6 had a funpacked trip to Wardown Park at the end of the July term.  They participated in numerous activities including badminton, tennis, rugby and a tug of war - the staff won!  Bubbles and noise were much in evidence throughout the day and a water fight resulted in some very wet staff......

Drumming Performance

Year 6 put on an impressive performance to show how their percussion skills had developed this year. Billy, their drumming teacher, lead the children as they played their various different percussion instruments. The noise was deafening as they skilfully pounded out a complex rhythm built of different parts. The result was a fantastic display of their musical prowess.

Year 6 Kingswood Residential Trip

From June 15 to June 18, fifty of our Year 6 took part in an activity based residential trip at Dearne Valley, near Doncaster. They had a very full time taking part in a number of challenging and exciting activities. Our staff team of Mrs Buckley, Mr Hunt, Mrs Barton, Miss Smith and Mrs Cox were proud of how positively the children approached the challenges and supported each other to overcome their fears - putting their Growth Mindset to good use!

Kingswood Trip - fire making and campfire

One of the activities was "bush-craft" where children learned how to start a fire from a spark using kindling and wood they created. This was much harder than it looked - especially after a thunderstorm left the ground and wood rather damp!

On the last night we had a group campfire where Rob, our lead instructor, lead us in some songs about buttons and bananas and where some of the children shared their worst jokes.

Kingswood Trip - rafting

Each team had to assemble a raft capable of carrying all members of the teams. They applied the cross-lashing rope techniques that they had learned in buggy-building to tie together their set of logs and barrels. Each team managed to make a craft that could carry them - but they all seemed to end up in the water anyway!

Kingswood Trip - high ropes, leap of faith and zipwire

Many children worked hard to overcome their anxiety and fear of heights to go higher and higher up the high rope equipment! Enoucrage 

Kingswood Trip - around the site

This site was an improve on previous sites - and worth the journey to get to it! Set in the beautiful Dearne Valley, the site was large enough to provide pleny of space for accommodation and activities.

Stockwood Park Trip

The Year 6 children who were not on the Kingswood trip had their own trip to Stockwood Park. There they played in the park, visited the transport museum and enjoyed an ice lolly in the sunshine!

The Year 6 hoodies have arrived!
