"Gods and Warriors" - Spring Term 


We will be exploring why Ancient Greece has had such a long and dramatic legacy as well as working as history detectives to piece together the fragments from the past.  We are focusing on the  Ideas, beliefs, attitudes (esp. the role of women); Way of life (contrasting Athens with Sparta and grasping that ideas flourished in a society where there were so many slaves to do the hard work!); Achievements in a range of disciplines so that pupils are aware of the heights they scaled compared to other societies at the time; Legacy more than just influence on today but on other periods as well (e.g. Victorians and Tudors).  We hope to go on a walk through Cheltenham looking at the architectural influences the Greeks had throughout history.

Waitrose Supermarket Sweep


During our visit to Waitrose, pupils explored the aisles looking for products that originate in South America.  Most of the tropical fruits were grown in Brazil with all the melons were grown in Brazil, blueberries from Chile and Brazil Nuts from Bolivia. 

We looked closely for logos for FairTrade products including chocolate/coffee/fruit and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) logos on many paper, tissue and card products. 

We also found Rainforest Alliance products and many of Cadbury's chocolate bars had Cocoa Life logos on them, telling us that the areas produce has been taken from is sustainably grown. 

The most worrying find was the use of Palm Oil in hundreds of products and we only found 2 examples of sustainable palm oil (Whole Food Peanut Butter and Kingsmill Bread.

The Year 6 Non-linear Quest 2018

Year 6 Class Quest


The children in Year 6 have been working hard on a piece of collaborative writing.


They have worked in pairs to write chapters for a non-linear quest. A non-linear story gives the reader options at the end of each chapter.


The children had a lot of fun coming up with exciting ideas and sharing them with their writing buddy.


Please read the finished quest, which is in the form of a Microsoft Powerpoint Presentation - this allows you to click on hyperlinked choices to take you to the correct chapters.



We do hope you will be able to join us on Thursday 25th January at 9:15am in the school hall.


Year 6 will be leading service for the other Junior children and parents are invited.


The school value for this term is TRUTHFULNESS, so expect this to feature prominently.
