Year 6- Shakespeare

Welcome to Shakespeare Class- Year Six

Mrs Lloyd -Class Teacher

Miss Cattan- Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Shakespeare Class.  We are the oldest children in school and take our responsibilities as role models very seriously. Many of us have important jobs around school which help daily activities run smoothly. You may meet some of us if you choose to come and look around our school- we look forward to giving you a warm welcome!


Please remember that PE takes place on Mondays and Fridays.  All children must have their kit in school and appropriate footwear. 

Homework is set on Monday and due in on Friday.  Please help your child at home by encouraging them to read at least 5 times a week, as well as practise their times tables, including related division facts. 

Dojo points will be awarded to children who record reading at least 5 times a week. 

All children should bring a water bottle to school.

Day 5 our final day.  We finished off the week with archery and vertical challenge, before building a burger for lunch and then coming home.


By the time I post this and Year 6 children and parents read this, we will all have been home now for a day.  The suitcases should have been unpacked and the washing machines will have been working overtime!  I know that the children all enjoyed the week, and every single one of them challenged themselves with something through the week; whether it was an activity, trying a new food or just making sure that they were ready for the day. 


Thank you parents for allowing me to take your children away for the week so that they could enjoy the end of their Year 6 journey and make lasting memories to take away from Yewdale.


Thank you children for rising to the challenges, making me (and Mrs Oakley and Mr Jackson) laugh, smile and cry.  You are amazing.

:) Mrs Lloyd


Day 4 - today had a theme - can you guess?  It was wet!  Mainly from the very grey sky, but it didn't stop all day.  It didn't dampen our spirits but it did make our clothes wet and muddy!  We had a super fun day with our activities however.  Giant swing, orienteering, sensory trail and the BIG tree climb - all 75 feet of it!  Our evening was rounded off with a disco, where we showed off our best dance moves and that was just Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Oakley and Mr Jackson! :)
Day 3 - it's Wednesday and it has stopped raining!  It's Wednesday and it's the middle of the week!  It's Wednesday and we have climbed, abseiled, built a raft and learned some basic survival skills.  Everyone is having a great time.  We have all faced challenges by choice (they can explain this when they get home) and we have really had to work together in our activities today.  Roll the photos...
Day 2 at PGL Dalguise has seen the rain rain and continue raining!  However, it hasn't dampened our spirits and we got stuck into problem solving, zip wire, canoeing and cat walk.  Please look at the slideshow below to see what we have challenged ourselves to do today.  We are definitley creating memories!

Everyone arrived safely at PGL Dalguise yesterday afternoon.  We all enjoyed a number of silly activities in the afternoon and evening.  'Wacky races' saw us dress up and do impressions of chickens laying eggs, amongst other things!  We had a lot of fun.


On day 2 we will all be problem solving, flying down the zip wire, canoeing and completing a cat walk.
