Spring Newsletter

Welcome to Orangutans


Mrs Astbury is your class teacher for this year and we also have Mrs Beaumont supporting our learning in class in the mornings. 

We have lots of exciting things planned over the course of this school year, please check our termly newsletter for updates. 


The Autumn term in 6O was very busy and we learned a lot! We did some pond dipping, worked with Wayne from Military School, looked at Christian beliefs in RE and learnt all about how the Tudors expanded their world through exploration among other things! We had a brilliant week in the run up to Christmas. At our Carol Service, the children sung beautifully. We enjoyed Christmas Lunch together, had a fabulous party day and even got to go and watch 'The Lion King' in Manchester!


Before we knew it, the Spring term was over. In the first half of the Spring term, we visited the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, learned about electricity in Science, how the Industrial Revolution shaped Lancashire, about Islam and the Five Pillars of Islam and our French learning was based on daily routines. Following February half term, we learnt about the circulatory system in Science, Christian beliefs about Easter in RE. We started designing bridges to build in DT and about rivers in Geography. 


In the first half of the Summer term, we learnt about World War Two in History, including how Leyland and our local area played an important role. In Art, we created WWII inspired medals by casting them with plaster. We celebrated the coronation of King Charles III as well as learning all about how Christians give and seek forgiveness in RE. 


For the final half term of the year, we will be completing Geography fieldwork on our local area, learning about Buddhism and working on programming in DT and Computing. We will also be preparing for our end of year play 'We'll Meet Again' and working on our transition to high school ready for September. 


If you would like to speak to Mrs Astbury or have any questions, please contact the school office.

We would like to thank all our Parents and Carers for their support.
