Spring 2019

Happy Easter!


Boys and girls, you have worked your socks off this term - thank you from all of team 6. Have a wonderful break; enjoy eating chocolate and have a rest.


Please keep your brain ticking over by working through some of your revision guides - we advise you spend 15-20 minutes per day.


Take a look below at some photographs from the Easter hunt from today...

Week beginning 1st April 2019

Another wonderful week in year 6, we had our first visit from the local police force, teaching the children all about community safety and on Friday, we had the pleasure of Key Strings, which took us on a swashbuckling adventure with music.


Also a massive well done to all the children during assessment week. You all tried extremely hard and each and everyone of you should be proud of yourself. Please have a good look over the papers that were sent home and think about how you can improve. Not long till SATs are all over!


Next week, we will be continuing our work on Trash, writing an exciting chase scene. We will also be finishing off our British Monarchy history topic. On Friday, we also have the annual 'Fernwood Easter Egg Hunt.' Plenty to look forward to.


Have a great weekend, team! :-)


Week beginning 18th March 2019

Another fantastic week in the kitchen with 6RN and 6CN baking their scrumptious cakes! Take a look at the photos below.


Next week The Nottinghamshire Police will be joining us for our PSHE lessons to talk to our children about being 'street aware'. They will discuss how to keep yourself safe and what to do in tricky real life situations.


It is also assessment week. Every child will complete past SATs papers in maths, reading and SPaG. These will be sent home marked in the final week.


Have a great weekend, team! :-)

Week Beginning 11th March 2019

Another great week in year 6.

6HC and 6SC had  great fun in their baking sessions- what imaginative designs you had: beaches, melting ice-creams, waterfalls and popcorn explosions to name a few. They all looked and smelt delicious! Perhaps some Bake-Off stars of the future. 6RN and 6CN make sure you remember your ingredients next week!

In History we looked at Henry VIII and his many wives. In P.E we have been working on our tennis skills, practising our forehand and backhand and trying to maintain a rally.

Comic Relief on Friday was a great success and the talent show was great fun! What a talented bunch we have at Fernwood.
