Today in Forest School, we had a go at making our own dens! I gave the children the resources and allowed them to come up with their own ideas on how they could make a suitable den that would allow all of them to fit underneath. The children absolutely loved this session, and the dens that they made were great! 

Here are some pictures

Last day

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

Well Year 6, I can't believe we are at the end of our first full term together! You have all worked so hard throughout this last half term and you should all be so proud of yourselves. 

Today, we had a fun filled day with it being our last day together this term. We started the morning by meeting our buddies to read a Christmas story to them that we had written over the past week. All of our buddies loved the stories and loved seeing all of you! We then had our Christmas party (as a treat for winning KS2 TT Rockstars tournament!) which was so much fun - we played games, had a dance and even had some treats!

Overall, we have had a great last day. Here are some pictures of our day:
