Week commencing 7th November
The children created a beautifully poignant display of poppy work, which was proudly displayed for all to see in the corridor along the side of the hall. Media including tissue paper, black and white photos and oil pastels were used, and the results were stunning.
Thank you so much to @AltrinchamBID and our artist, Steve who came in and helped children from our Year 6 classes create some spectacular lanterns. We can’t wait for the parade on the 19th November. See you there!
21.10.22 - Half-Term Sponsored Read
To celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we are running a sponsored read over half term 22/10/22-30/10/22.
The project is being organised in conjunction with our local Usborne Partner, and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school. In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will also donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school. So, for every £600 raised, we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books!
We always aim to beat our last year’s target which was £1000 in sponsor money with Usborne donating an additional £600 of books for free if our target is met. This will give us a total of £1600 to spend on new books and resources for our children.
Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read books, comics, magazines, newspapers, menus, websites, recipes, poems, leaflets, instructions – anything with words! For younger children in EYFS they can listen to the adult read their books and that still counts.
The class who have the most recorded minutes will win an extra free book and a small treat! All children will receive a certificate for taking part.
If you are able to support our sponsored read, please find on the reverse a sponsorship form and an extra reading log for your child if they wish to use it to record their reading. Please send any money in a named envelope with the class name and the amount raised alongside the forms by Friday 4th November.

Year 6 had a great week last week. We had a visit from Media Cubs and the children got to be creative and come up with their own broadcasts. Photos coming soon! This week we have lots more going on as well as our second Lacrosse session and more exploration of our local area in our mapping unit!

Please find attached in the 'Documents section' the Year 6 Homework Diary for each day. We are aware that some of the children may be prepping for 11+ exams and that they may not have time to complete the homework set. If this is the case for your child then we completely understand but please just let us know either by email or by writing a note. If there is also any other reason for your child not being able to complete their homework, again just please let us know by email or by writing a note. Please keep checking the homework each week diary as some activities may slightly change. My email is Year6SB@oldfield-brow,com
Week Beginning 12th September 2022
Today we have started our PE subject for the term - Yoga! What a lot of fun (and funny shapes) we had, and everyone enjoyed the calming meditation at the end.
It is also a time of celebration for some of our families. Mid-Autumn Festival, Zhongqiu Jie (中秋节) in Chinese, is also called the Moon Festival or the Mooncake Festival. It is the second most important festival in China after Chinese New Year. In China, Mid-Autumn Festival is a celebration of the rice harvest and many fruits. Ceremonies are held both to give thanks for the harvest and to encourage the harvest-giving light to return again in the coming year. It is also a reunion time for families, a little like Thanksgiving. Chinese people celebrate it by gathering for dinners, worshiping the moon, lighting paper lanterns, eating mooncakes, etc.
We have learnt a lot about figurative language in English, and created some extremely entertaining poems in the style of Ted Hughes.
In English, we are consolidating our knowledge of place value up to 1,000,000. On Friday, we had a real treat - MediaCubs came in to give us a taste of what it is like to be both behind and in-front of a camera, which a news report is going on. Hopefully an afterschool club to support the interest that was shown will be offered shortly - watch this space
Week Beginning 7th September 2022
Welcome everyone to the brand new class of 2022-23!
It has been a fabulous week already. A huge congratulations to all members of Year 6, you have come back to school with such a positive attitude, and are showing your eagerness to learn so clearly. We are very proud of you already!
A very exciting Art competition is already in place - the 'Oldfield Brow Crest Competition' is offering our children to chance to go down in history, as a designer of the new school House badges. The school is looking to place greater importance on our team houses and our values, both as part of each house and as part of our whole school. (Please see the powerpoint and templates in our Downloads section for further details).
Have a wonderful weekend all, see you on Monday :-)
The Year 6 team can't wait to get to know you all. We have so many exciting topics and subjects to cover in our curriculum, and some very exciting workshops along the way as well. We know you are going to really enjoy it!
Just think, you will not only be the top of the school in school years, but top of the school in floors as well - get ready for those stairs :-)
Enjoy the rest of the summer holidays, and we look forward to welcoming you back on Wednesday 7th September!
Mr Butler, Mrs Brownsell and Miss Burney
PE lessons will begin on the second week back, week beginning 12/9/22.
