ARCTIC FOX: Class 6
To view the New Curriculum, which will come into effect from September 2019, for the Upper School (Years 5 and 6), please take a look at the Curriculum Information page which can be found under School Information - Key Information from the Home Page.
Wow! What an amazing Arctic Fox ‘Chill Out’ Exhibition
The children put together a thoughtful and innovative ‘Together & Wellbeing’ theme with children excitedly sitting with family members to share their exhibition experience.
The children kicked off the exhibition with a musical singing rendition of ‘Happy’ and then showcased their artistic talents of dance, artwork, pom pom and badge making demonstrations. They also showed off their presentation and entrepreneurial skills and finally a chill out guide of meditation for the adults.
After, the children organised refreshments of tea, coffee and yummy homemade biscuits. It was a wonderful atmosphere where they chatted and presented family members with their current school work.
Thank you to everyone who came, we hope you enjoyed our ‘Chill Out’ Exhibition!

As part of this terms Learning Unit Theme 'Harmonious Habitats & Mysterious Mayans' we decided to make some well known dishes that originated from the ancient Mayans, including guacamole, black bean, tomato and chili salsa and pineapple salsa accompanied with corn tortillas.
"The Mayans invented many foods that are still eaten on a regular basis. They were the first civilization to make corn tortillas, and they used their avocado crops to make an ancient form of guacamole. The four staple foods in Mayan cuisine were squash, beans, maize and chili peppers, and they were often combined with meat or seafood. Squash, beans, and maize are often referred to as the "three sisters" because they provide all the necessary nutrients when eaten together."

Fletcher was selected for a place at an Olympic Training Camp as he was recognised as a 'top swimmer' in a recent gala. The training camp was held over two days where he did land and pool based training run by two Olympic swimmers. Liam Tancock in the photo held a backstroke World Record for 8 years, so certainly knows all about swimming. Fletcher had great fun and was inspired by the Olympics.
