Fundraising for CAFOD 
As part of our FAITH IN ACTION award, we wanted to support those around our world who are poor or sick. We watched the CAFOD harvest assembly and decided to do some fundraising. CAFOD stands for Catholic Agency for Overseas Development and is currently supporting communities in our world who are suffering because of the Coronavirus. We are collecting loose change and are trying to fill a large container with coins. We each decorated a jam jar which we will use as a money pot to collect coins. £3 will buy facemasks for those in poor countries. Extra money will buy hand sanistizer or taps for clean water. Thank you to our parents, other family members and friends who have contributed to the fund.

Monday 16th November marked the beginning of Anti-Bullying week and Year 6 wore odd socks to school. Odd Socks Day was started by the Anti-Bullying Alliance which is a group of organisations, charities and individuals who work together to try and stop bullying. During the week the children thought about what makes someone special and unique, and reflected on how we can celebrate our differences. 
The Day of the Dead is a feast that is celebrated in Mexico and the Americas. Families come together to celebrate and remember ancestors and loved ones who have passed away, and although it is a time for people to reflect and remember, it's also an explosion of colour and celebration. People build altars beautifully decorated with pictures of family members who have died. There are parades and parties, and people sing and dance often wearing brightly coloured costumes or skull masks. We created our own colourful masks decorated with patterns, beads and sequins.

Master Class 
 
On 24th January, pupils and staff from Clifton High school visited our classroom to lead a Master Class. They had come to share their knowledge of Science and Maths and to teach us a bit about Space. 
 
The title of the class was "Measuring the Universe" and using our measuring skills we worked out the size and weight of the earth. 
 
We enjoyed learning about shadows and different ways of measuring distances. 
Kite Making 
 
We have been helping our buddies to make Kites. 
 
First we designed the kites, then we copied the designs onto some parachute material. We helped our buddies to colour in the picture and decorate the kite. 
 
We are going to add some sticks to make a frame and attach some string and a tail. 
 
We are hoping for a good windy day so we can take our kites onto the school field and help our buddies to fly them.

Rainbow Wraps 
As part of our science work we took part in a Healthy Eating workshop where we found out about the importance of a balanced diet. We made Rainbow Wraps and sampled vegetables we had never tasted before such as beetroot and raw onion. We filled our wraps with lots of brightly coloured fillings including peppers, carrots, cucumber and cheese. They tasted delicious!

Have you ever seen anyone this happy to do the washing up?! 
Another unsuccessful crate stacking attempt! 
All aboard the Katakanu! 
 
We don't normally encourage playing with fire... 
During the last week of term 5, Year 6 went to the Brecon Beacons to visit the Acorn Adventure camp site at Tan Troed. We had a fun-filled and busy week doing many activities, including katakanuing, climbing, high ropes, bushcraft, raft building and more. Not all of these activities were easy! Just in case you thought we weren't busy enough, we even had evening activities to complete as well. The instructors did a great job of organising games, races, sing-songs and even a camp fire so we could toast marshmallows. At one point, some children were toasting multiple marshmallows at the same time and then eating them at once - it was quite messy! We all had a fantastic time on camp and learnt something new about ourselves, whether it was pushing yourself to achieve or realising that you could do something new. A great week with wonderful memories! 
 
Walking across tyres is easy! (Unless you're blindfolded.) 
No children were harmed in the taking of this photo. 
We were incredibly confident that the raft would float... honestly! 
What a week!

End of Year Production - Year 6 has got talent 
This years production took the form of a talent show, based on Britains Got Talent, with a good variety of acts including singing, dancing, magic tricks, tennis skills and a poetry recital. The hall had been beautifully decorated by Miss Parry and the Friends of St Francis, and parents, governors, friends and relatives came along to watch. The atmosphere was amazing and there was lots of cheering, clapping, laughter and smiles as each performer took to the stage. Freddie and Luca took the roles of Ant and Dec and introduced each act. The teachers were the judges and they were amazed by the range of talents that were demonstrated. One of them said that we all deserved the Golden Buzzer! Although we were a bit nervous beforehand by the time we were on the stage we felt so excited and made our parents extremely proud. We all agreed it was one of the best experiences of our lives because it was so much fun. At the end we got presented with our Leavers jumpers and we said Thank you to Miss Parry and everyone who helped.
