Year 6 humanist visit

Year 6 had a Humanist to come in and talk to the class, which was really interesting. The children found out that there was a lot of similarities with the religions we have learned about in that Humanists believe and try and practise compassion. It was interesting to hear how humanists do not worship a god/have anywhere to meet and do not have a holy book to learn from. The children thought of some great questions – some even involving dinosaurs and aliens! 

Letter to local MP on vaping

Year 6 have been working hard in writing a letter to Mr Russell, their local MP, outlining the dangers of vaping and how in some cases, they would like to see these banned in Watford or certainly not marketed to children under 18. This also links with their PSHE curriculum. 

Water fight!

To celebrate their hard work and great resilience throughout the SATS and the build up towards them, year 6 had a water fight last Friday. Great fun was had by all! 

Year 6 have been working hard on their writing this Summer term. They have been writing about The Highwayman, Alma, a non-chronological report and a balanced argument. 

We are now have Year 6 work on display at school. They have been working on watercolours, portrait using the technique of reflection. They read Street Child by Bertie Doherty. After a drama activity, they wrote about the life that Emily and Lizzie might have had. 

Year 6 worked on their vanishing point, water colour skills, cross hatching and stippling to create a fantastic visual effect. 


We went into the museum and found out about Cassiobury House in Victorian times then went for a walk around the town. Learning about the Free School, the original train station (which Queen Victoria visited) and the legend of the fig tree as well as St Mary’s church. 

In year 6, the children are looking at the Victorians. They have had an immersion day, where the company ‘Off the Page’ came in and re-enacted what it would have been like to have attended school in the Victorian times. The children enjoyed dressing for the day and learning about what life would have been like. The children will also learn about what Watford would have been like in Victorian times and will go on a walk, lead by the museum, to find out what is still left from that period. The children have looked at sources in history and have had to work in groups to decide if the sources can be trusted! They have learnt about the British Empire and have thought about the similarities and differences of human rights (as well as women’s rights) when comparing now and then.
