Year 6 news...
We finished the term in style today with a beautiful church service for Holy Week, a lovely attendance assembly and, to top it all off, our annual St. Pat’s Got Talent spectacular! Children in each class from Nursery to Year 6 have been auditioning in their classes and practising hard to make through to the finals. The standard was so high again; the talent in this school is truly incredible! We had singing, dancing, piano playing, comedy and even magic!
In the end, Thomas and Alfie from Year 1, and Viyan from Year 6 were this year’s St. Pat’s Got Talent winners with their superb performances, but all the performers were outstanding. It was great to see so many parents there to support the children too, as always.
Well done, everyone and have a lovely Easter. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the photos and videos below!

We we had a fabulous time listening to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra this afternoon. So many of our children told me how ‘lucky’ they felt on the way home. What a privilege!0 Comments
Congratulations to Year 6 who have won our attendance challenge! They are the first class to finish Mr. Potato Head because of good attendance over the weeks. They now get to choose their prize! Looks like Mr. Potato Head is also giving it some thought…
This morning, we finished the term off in style with a spectacular music assembly! Every child from Year 1 to Year 6 performed, all playing instruments and singing, and some even performing their own compositions!
Year 5 started us off with a rock classic; Livin’ On a Prayer by Bon Jovi! The children played their own compositions on the keyboards, flutes, clarinets and glockenspiels, playing 3 separate parts. We also had fantastic rock drumming from Sarah and Conner! What a great way to start the show!
Then Year 1 showed us their hip-hop skills, rapping a modified version of the Grandma Rap (we changed it to the Santa Rap!), including their very own Christmas-themed rhythmic phrases led by Anthony, Nouf, Aye and Kitty!
Year 2 and Year 3 performed together, Year 2 on the glockenspiels and Year 3 on the recorders. They sang and played This Little Light of Mine…and it was amazing!
Year 4 have started to learn the clarinets this term with Mrs Holland, and they already sound great, performing 2 pieces for us as a class. Well done!
The Year 5 flutes group performed next. This sounded lovely!
After that, it was the Year 6 flutes group’s turn, playing Away in a Manger beautifully!
Next, the Year 6 clarinets group played Silent Night. We all felt very Christmassy by this point!
The school choir performed after that, singing a song by Mr Larkin called This Christmastime, with solo singers (the incredible Erin, Lily, Jessie and Lily) and singing in 3 parts. It was fabulous!
Finally, Year 6 closed the show with an absolutely wonderful performance of I’ll Be There. We had a harmony section, solos from Erin, Lily, Viyan, Millie, Alexie, Ciennah, Kenzy, Jewan, Julio, Lily-Rae, Abby (not to mention Bader, Luke, Kieran and Brendan at the end), and children performing their compositions in 3 parts on the keyboards, glockenspiels, clarinets and flutes! It was a superb end to the assembly!3 Comments
We’ve definitely got some budding songwriters in Year 6! After learning about blues music during Black History Week, Julio decided to write his own blues song about the hardships of being in Year 6, such as being old enough to do the dishes, but not being old enough to vote!
I love it!7 Comments
We are looking forward to Advent and preparing to celebrate Christmas. Our Faith in Action group have written reflections to display around the Nativity scene, helping us to think about what is really important at Christmas time.0 Comments
Today we were joined by Stella who was a very relaxed Lurcher crossbreed. Yr 3 did so much reading that some of them read a whole book again!
Year 6 did some reading and also asked some good science questions including, do dogs get dandruff?! The answer is yes they do, their skin can get dry like ours, which is what causes dandruff.
We found out that Stella was found on her own in a field and was most likely abandoned by her family. She would really like to have a new family to live with. Some of us would have loved to have kept her! She was so friendly and calm and just loved being stroked, we hope she finds a home soon.One Comment
On Monday in class, we used iMovie to create an advert for the Infinity Park in Cosmic, a great book by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. We have used our art books to design our own Possibility Building and a map for Infinity Park. This work gave us great inspiration to make the adverts. An example of our fine work is below, we hope you enjoy!0 Comments
