The week beginning Monday 25 June we celebrated arts week. Haydn has become an associate school of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in a two year project and therefore we decided to base our work this year on two Shakespeare plays. Key stage 1 looked at A Midsummer Night’s Dream, while Key Stage 2 studied Macbeth.
Having read Macbeth in the autumn term, year 6 were familiar with the story so we watched a short version of the film and looked at famous quotes from the play and tried to guess which scene they were from. Then in pairs the children created a tableau of their favourite part of the play.
The children loved the experience and designed and made some impressive backdrops.
Take a look at class 6E too!
Year 6 had a fabulous time at Caythorpe. The weather was fantastic allowing us to enjoy a range of activities including kayaking, high ropes, buggy build, aeroball, trapeze and giant swing. We all had lots of fun and the children were brilliantly behaved. What a perfect end to year 6!
On Sunday 24th June, ten pupils from Haydn will be swimming to raise money for dementia. As part of a bigger team, the children will be swimming the combined distance of the English Channel - that's 34km! To support the event, the children in year 6 have designed some bags to give to the swimmers as a thank you for their time and efforts. Good luck to everyone involved.
HSBC Go Ride Cycling Sessions
Year 6 are currently taking part in a four-week cycling course provided by British Cycling and HSBC. The HSBC Go-Ride programme is a fun, progressive pathway for young people, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, active learning and physical literacy. The children are having lots of fun developing confidence and technical ability in balance and coordination.

The Year 6 Team
ESFA Girls' U18 Schools and Colleges - ALL GIRL NATIONAL FINALS 2018
A celebration of girls' football on International Women's Day
We watched South Gloucestershire and Stroud College beat Solihull College 3-2 in a thrilling game of football. Both teams not only displayed great skill but also fantastic sportsmanship and teamwork. An inspiration to us all.
On Monday 5 February year 6 were lucky enough to work with eco artist Sarah Turner. We used recycled materials to create an art installation which will be exhibited, along with 19 other schools, at St Mary's Church in the Lace Market on 23 February to celebrate Light Night.
"It was good to create art using materials that would normally be thrown away." Felicity
"It was great!" Seth
We have had a fabulous Autumn term and all the children have worked extremely hard. To celebrate the end of term, we have had a fun week visiting the cinema to watch 'Wonder' and ice-skating at Nottingham Winter Wonderland. It was great fun! Have a lovely Christmas break and Happy New Year to you all.
Year 6 Assembly - Thursday 30th November 2017
Our year 6 assembly was all about our love of reading. We have a year group challenge to read 100 books before we leave Haydn Primary School. These range from classics such as 'Alice in Wonderland' to current favourites such as 'Wonder' and 'The Goldfish Boy'. We scripted and acted out scenes from some of our favourite stories and identified which books were our personal favourites. It was great fun and we did a fabulous job.
This term as part of our computing topic and art and design topic, we made fairground rides. In groups and having considered our favourite rides at Goose Fair, we planned, designed and made a ride. We used our knowledge of a Crumble controller to connect and program our models so that they rotated, it was great fun.
As part of our half term geography homework project the children were asked to create something related to the topic ‘Extreme Earth’ and weather conditions.
It could be:
A picture, painting or collage
An information sheet on a case study or newspaper article
Something inspired by a particular artist
Look how creative they were.
