Y6 enjoyed a design and technology day creating “fashion” from recyclable items. The theme was “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” and they certainly did that. Working in small teams, they created a selection of weird and wonderful items of clothing and showed their designs off on the cat-walk.
Y6 kicked off the final half-term of the summer term with their first athletics lesson with Mrs Mason. They learnt how to bounce lightly on their toes and place their arms in the correct position to optimise their best possible running style and technique.
Y6 enjoyed a morning outdoors in the fresh air using the nature in our school-yard to help them create some fantastic and highly imaginative artistic creations! It was a great way to end Mental Health Awareness Week.
