Year 6 Week Ahead Information

28 October 2016

An overview of the week ahead in Year 6

  • Students plan and practice for their Project Week visit to Dengfeng Kungfu School

Information and Reminders

Students have been working in various different groups to prepare a lesson in English, art or PE to deliver to the children at Dengfeng Kungfu School in Shaolin. You could ask your child to show you their lesson as a rehearsal.

We were also very pleased to see their enjoyment and participation in the first STEAM activity day. The three activities were: pylon building, glider construction and group drawing. The students all seemed to enjoy the day and achieve great success.

It was also great to see so many applications for the MIT trip. The selection process will end with a presentation to judges in the week of 14th November.

You will have received much information about Project Week already. Please remember that students must be at school by 6.30am on Monday morning. Don’t forget their passport!
