De Porres Class

We are a Year 6 class and the adults working with us are Mrs Tilling, Mrs West, Mrs Caiger, Mrs Clack and Mrs Anand 



17th June 2022

We have had a busy start to the Summer term and we have lots to look forward to, not least our residential on 27th June.

We have now started our Civil Rights topic in History lessons and have learned about how the  ‘ American Dream’ was not achievable for all of society in 1950’s America.

In Science, we have finished our Light topic by finding out what happens to a ray of light if it is refracted. We were fascinated to discover how using lenses can refract light and correct our vision if we need glasses.

In Literacy, we have finished our brilliant suspense tales. What wonderful imaginations Year 6 have! We are looking forward to reading Macbeth later on in the term.

In Religious Education, we have started the Pentecost topic and are finding out why the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are important in the lives of Christians.

The Year 6 have embarked upon their fundraising mission for Mary’s Meals and have been sharing games that they have designed and made at breaktimes with children across the school. They have made a fantastic start and have already raised £100.00.

We had a fantastic end to the week with a visit to Douai Abbey for the Leavers’ Mass. We joined children from other Catholic schools to mark the end of our primary school education and  to celebrate the exciting times ahead.

Of course, our mind is on transition into the next stage of our education and, in the coming weeks, the Year 6 children will visit their new secondary schools. We hope they enjoy these exciting events.
