Welcome to Year 6
Introducing our Ladbrooke Christmas Gonks!
Year 6 have worked super hard on their Christmas crafts today. They have made some delightful Christmas Gonks, which, I know, you will be really pleased with and will go perfectly on your Christmas tree, on the mantle piece or as part of your Christmas decorations.
If you would like to purchase your child's Ladbrooke Gonk, they are £1.50 and you can pay via the school gateway.
Welcome back - Year 6, 2019-20
If you were unable to attend our parent's meeting yesterday (Monday 16th September), click here to see the powerpoint I shared.
I also shared some ways in which you can support your child at home, aside from homework. I hope you find it useful. Please click here to view this resource.
Welcome back to Year 6 and to a new year at Ladbrooke.
Things are a little different but we are trying to be as 'normal' as possible, whatever that is these days!
Year 6 have settled excellently back into school life. I have been very impressed with how well they have just got on. It's actually hard to believe that they have not been in school since March. They are working so hard.
A visit from Spirit of the Wild – Wednesday 15th January 2020
Today, year 5 and 6 were lucky to receive a visit from Spirit of the Wild. As part of our topic, The Rainforests, the children were introduced to animals from this type of environment. Ben gave us lots of information about these animals, lots of which will come in very useful in future topic lessons.
Some of the children were picked to handle some of the exhibited animals, which included: The Amazonian yellow-thighed parrot, The hissing cockroach, A millipede, The Brazilian black spider, An African bullfrog, The red foot tortoise, A crested gecko, A boa constrictor, A fruit bat and a python.
All of the children were excellently behaved throughout the two hour session and learned lots about the rainforests and the animals that inhabit these parts of the world.
On Wednesday 4th December, Year 5 and 6 visited the British Museum as part of our grand finale for our autumn topic - ancient Egypt.
We thoroughly enjoyed this visit as we were able to see so many Egyptian artefacts, including the Rosetta Stone, Mummies and examples of Hieroglyphics.
The children were all very well behaved throughout the day and were able to consolidate their learning from this very interesting topic.
Please read the following recounts from some of the children.
