Year 6 - Orcas 2017 - 2018

Mr Nodder

Welcome to Orcas 2017-18

Happy New Year and a huge thank you for all the gifts... they will certainly keep me going for a few months! 

The children have come back focused and ready to go. Its a very important term and with the Spelling Championship starting this week, the children are in revision mode already. 


Chester Zoo. 

We had a fantastic day at the zoo! Although it was cold, my group (Big Cat Group) made the most of our time there and visited all we needed to for our literacy research.  Big Cat Group. 

 We went straight to the Sumatran Tiger.  

 The cheetahs - I named them, Reuben, Kacper and Charlie 


World Book Day - 

The snow didn't stop World Book Day as we had it this week. Have you ever seen the Big Bad Wolf deliver a boosters session to Willy Wonka? 


This week we have been writing, writing, writing! The children have bee writing diary entries for Holy Week. They will be in charge of Open the Book and Easter Service next week. Watch this space! 

A huge congratulations to our Spelling Champion 2018 - Yoann Bentley. He saw off tough competition in the final against Amber Harvey and Hollie French. 

Bekah Iddon was the Consolation Cup winner and battled through Spell offs against some very good spellers! Well done Bekah.
