Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

 

Year 6 trip to Alton Castle
On Wednesday 13th June, an excited Year 6 journeyed to the historic Alton Castle in Staffordshire for a two-night retreat filled full of faith and fun. While on retreat, the children had the opportunity to take part in some exciting, challenging outdoor activities, including mountain biking, archery, rock climbing and trekking, and strengthen their relationship with God through reverent prayer, silent meditation, joyful singing and the celebration of Mass. As always, the children were fantastic ambassadors for Christ the King with their outstanding behaviour and enthusiastic approach to every experience - they even managed to get some sleep! Thank you to Mrs Foley, Mr Keenan, Mrs Tierney and Mr Gutteridge for their organisation and efforts with making this memorable trip possible.

Year 6 trip to the Birmingham Buddhist Vihara, 20th and 21st June 2018
This week, as part of their learning about China and the religion of Buddhism, Year 6 had the opportunity to visit the Birmingham Buddhist Vihara. As part of the visit, the children discovered more about the origins of The Buddha and the significant symbols of Buddhism, discussed the five important rules which Buddhists live by, explored the many artefacts in the beautiful Peace Pagoda and even had the chance to practise meditation! Throughout the trip, the staff at the Vihara commented on how knowledgeable and reverent all of the children were and how much of a credit they are to Christ the King school. Well done to all in Year 6!

Trip to Enginuity Ironbridge Gorge Museum, 27th June 2018

On Wednesday, an excited Year 6 travelled to the idyllic Shropshire countryside to take part in a ‘Buggy Racer’ workshop at the fascinating Enginuity Ironbridge Gorge Museum. On arrival, the children had the opportunity to explore and learn from the many amazing hands-on scientific exhibits before working in teams to design and build their very own racing buggies. The challenge, to create the quickest and most aesthetically appealing buggy, required the children to call upon the wealth of scientific and design technology skills they have learnt this year. The visit culminated in a dramatic and enthralling race to determine which team had met the design brief most successfully. As always, the children proved to be fantastic ambassadors for Christ the King.
