Year 6

Welcome to Year 6.  Please check here for latest updates.  This is the final year for our Year 6 children and we hope that we can build many memories before they go on to Secondary School.  

 

Easter Project Competition 

To conclude our butterfly-journey, we would like you to design a butterfly garden for our one remaining butterfly - Lil Totoro as he is unable to fly and live free due to his deformed wings. 

Here are your success criteria for the garden:

  • The base of your garden should not be smaller than A4 (you can use a cereal box for example).
  • Include a suitable environment for the butterfly e.g. source or water, flowers, shelter from predators and a feeding area for the sugary water and fruits.
  • You can use any material to make your garden, we are looking for the most creative and original idea.

Please have your butterfly garden ready with you on Monday 20th April for our Zoom topic lesson. We would like you to share and talk about the garden. As a group, we will decide which one is the best and would like to collect it that week (keeping our social distancing of course) and use it for Lil Totoro. We will also give out an Easter Egg as a reward.

Here are some ideas for your garden:
