Year 6 moments

In Year 6 we have been doing lots of really great things. An interesting person we learnt about was about Harris Burdick. He was an illustrator and writer who took his pictures to a publisher. He was asked to bring them back the following day but he never turned up and the publisher searched and searched for him but he was never ever found. We were asked to imagine the story behind one of his pictures and we wrote about it as one of our progress tasks. We really enjoyed this as it caught our imagination.

One of the highlights of the year was the school journey week. We visited many places including Salisbury Cathedral where we had fun making gargoyles from air dried clay and model spires from pipe cleaners, straws, paper and sticky tape.

We visited Brownsea Island where we made dens, practiced archery and walked along low ropes, which was awesome. We also visited the Oceanarium and went ten pin bowling. On the third day we went to Portsmouth and visited HMS Victory and took part in the Trafalgar experience. Then we went up Spinnaker Tower which was amazing although some of us found it a bit scary. We also played mini golf and croquet which we really enjoyed. We went on the beach at Studland Bay and played football and had a sand castle building competition which was so much fun.

Also on our school journey we visited Corfe Castle, a model village and Beaulieu. We also visited Monkey World where we played on a climbing frame and bought monkey teddies. When we came back to school we made models of where we had been. We were very sorry when the school journey was over.

In September we shall be moving on to our secondary schools. We are sad to leave St Paul’s but we are excited about the new chapter in our lives.
