Year 6 Letters – May 2021
8 Year 6 children wrote formal, persuasive letters to our local MP, MK councillors and local parish councillors to ask for more bins around Rusland Circus. They worked really hard, giving up 2 lunchtimes a week until the task was completed. Having viewed the problem, the children thought about the issues and why more bins were important. The letters were then handwritten onto school-headed paper, showing the need for a perfect end product. We are really proud of their work, please have a read and see what you think.
Survival Skills Workshop
On the 5th of November Year 6 students visited Hazeley Woods to experience the Survival Skills Workshop. We were met there by the Parks Trust members who led Year 6 through their activities. The Parks Trust guided us through these skills in groups: Fire lighting, shelter building and water filtering. With the fire lighting they partnered up to make the fire using only flint, steel, cotton wool and a small tray. The students were shown a brief demonstration before trying it themselves accompanied by the staff. If they were finding this too challenging, they would use steel wire and a battery to create the spark in an alternative form. In addition to this, they built shelters with the materials provided including tarpaulin, paracord and natural surroundings. The pupils parted into small groups of four to attach the tarpaulin to the trees only using reef knots and hoist knots which were demonstrated. The last activity the year sixes participated in was water filtering of which you needed nothing but a plastic bottle, two cups and our outdoor surroundings. They stuffed the bottle with leaves, moss, sticks and grass where they applied pressure to make sure it was compact. Our year sixes enjoyed this trip very much.

Year 6 visit to the Harry Potter Studios
The children of Year 6 recently visited the Harry Potter Studios in Watford as part of their unit of learning on Narrative-Adventure. This highly anticipated visit is always eagerly received by the children and staff and this year was no exception. Isabel W from 6DC wrote the following “When we first got into the building we watched the introduction. Suddenly, they lighted up the screen and revealed the Great Hall. Everyone rushed in. There were Christmas Trees decorated with Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin colours. There was a feast with fake food that looked so realistic. It was so exciting and I wish I could go again”
Honey B reported “My favourite part of the Harry Potter school trip was when we walked down Diagon Alley. We got to see all the different wizard s shops such as Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes and Olivanders. Also seeing the magical foot print move by themselves was amazing. The shop towered tall as we gazed at the giant Fred Weasley lift off his hat and replace it as if he was real!”
