Welcome back to our Web Page. With SATs now finished and the results keenly anticipated, we are now working hard to meet the Writing Assessment Targets for Yr 6.
To this end we've been busily writing our instructions for how to have the perfect day. The children learned about the need to release specific hormones in order to achieve happiness. We then thought hard about what we could do to release Dopamine, Seretonin, Oxytocin and Endorphins.

Immediately prior to the Half Term Holiday, the children took part in a Careers Week Initiative. They learned how an employer will be looking for particular skills and attitudes which are specific to each job. They then thought hard about their future ambitions.
Following some research, the children then wrote a CV for themselves. There target was, once they had chosen a career path they would like to follow, to write a persuasive CV for where they need to be in 9 years time. They now fully understand what they will have to do in order to get their dream job and how they can realise their dream.
We would particularly like to thank the army of volunteers who gave up their time to visit the children and tell them about their fascinating careers. We started the week with a large number of footballers, pop stars and 'Youtubers' but I am delighted to be able to report that we can now boast doctors, robotics engineers, civil engineers, airline pilots, animal trainers, design engineers, avionics technicians and even a deep sea diver. A huge thank you to all of you who gave up your time.
