Year 6 - Mr Middleton

These year sixes were the children who achieved 100% attendance during the Autumn term.  What an amazing effort to not miss a second of school for a whole term. Well done Year 6!

‘Gimme, Gimme, Gimme’ was this year’s show and the children did an incredible job inputting o a performance to entertain and amaze.  The audience loved every second of the acting, singing and dancing! Merry Christmas everyone!

For our enterprise project, we decided to design, make and then sell some Sweetie Santas ready for the Christmas period.  They went down a storm with all of our customers and we managed to make over £500 profit for reinvestment in the Spring term.  Year 6 will keep you posted on how we decide to use the money.

We loved tucking into our festive dinners, pulling crackers with our friends and sharing plenty of laughter. We also sang along to some of our favourite Christmas tunes.

To try and give a little something back to the community, and to tie in with our WW2 topic, we organised a special WW2 inspired afternoon tea for residents of some local care homes.  We were the waiters and waitresses, as well as the cooks that created the sandwiches, biscuits and cakes for our visitors.  We treated them to an evacuee-inspired short play and sang some of the very best WW2 songs.  We learnt a great deal from the whole experience and realised how much a little company and conversation mean to others.

Welcome to the new Year 6: Mr Middleton class page.

The children have settled beautifully into their new surroundings and were very excited to share their news from the summer holidays.

We have had a super busy start to the autumn term. During the first week, we were learning about the importance of having a ‘growth mindset’ and using the ‘Birchgrove Supersaurs’ as inspirational role models in our daily learning.

Throughout the autumn term we will be learning all about WWII. If you have any family members who would like to share any stories or information about this period in history then please do not hesitate contact me and we could arrange a visit.

Alternatively, if you have any WWII relics to supplement the learning in class, these would be appreciated too.

The Pendine residential is fast approaching (Monday, October 15th). Please be aware that the full balance must be paid by September 28th.

I am very much looking forward to the term ahead. If you have any questions at any time then please do not hestitate to contact me via the school office or directly through ‘Class Dojo’.

Kind regards

Mr Middleton
