Year 6

Woodrow High House Residential Trip Presentation


On day one we:

*Arrived at Woodrow and were taken on a tour around the house.

*Took part in a scavenger hunt to get to know the site (before it started to rain!)

*Had lunch in our very own lounge (Oak room).

*Tried some new activities - archery, challenge course and wacky races. Learnt a new skill of archery, conquered fears (dark, small tunnels and heights) during the challenge course and went inside for some shelter from the rain during wacky races.

*Settled into our rooms and put making our own beds into action!

*Ate a hearty dinner: beef/tofu Chinese noodles and salad and chocolate cake with chocolate sauce.

*Showered, put PJs on and had hot chocolate before playing a couple of quick games before bed 🙂


On day two, we have waffles with a variety of toppings, cooked breakfast, fruit (all optional) for breakfast. Then we get to tackle the high ropes, crate stack and attempt a traverse challenge before our disco in the evening! 


We are hoping for some better weather ☀️☀️ Can we all do a sun dance please?! 

Fun in the rain!

Knowledge Organisers


At the beginning of each half term, every child is given a  pack of Knowledge Organisers. These are documents which outline the main elements of the topics being learnt during the half term. Please do keep them in a safe place and use them regularly to support learning. Use the mini quiz to test knowledge at the start and then again at the end of the term. Learning the key vocabulary is essential.

Carousel Learn


We are embarking on a new and exciting journey with our home learning.

As you know knowledge organisers are a fantastic way to learn key information and vocabulary about topics learnt in schools. Carousel is a way to support learning using quizzing online. It is easy, click on the link and log in using your first name and surname and give it a go.

See the 'how to' video link below.

We use Carousel for homework as well as other websites such as My Maths and Purple Mash.  Click on the links below.

Activity Passports


Each year group has its own list of around twenty activities, which works out at about seven per term. They can be done in any order. The majority of these activities will cost little or nothing to complete. When your child has completed an activity, then please let the class teacher know by showing a photograph, ticket or postcard etc. At the end of the year, we will award bronze, silver or gold certificates according to the number of activities each child has completed.
