Spring Term 2019:

In the Spring term the topic wass:  Let the Battle Begin! Invaders and Settlers

Year 6 learned about the Viking invasions, The Lindesfarne attack, Danegold and Alfred the Great whilst reading Beowulf as a class.  Their art work focussed on Viking long boats and making Norse gods from clay.  Children used Powerpoint and Word for topic-related work and presentations alongside Keeping Safe in Cyberspace in P.S.H.E.



Young Voices Concert at the O2 Arena, London

On Monday Year 6 pupils attended the annual Young Voices concert at the O2 Arena in London.   With children from other schools from around the country, they formed a choir of over eight thousand voices to perform songs which they had all learnt at their respective schools. During the afternoon, the children rehearsed all the songs with singers Tony Hadley, Beau Dermott & Sharlene Hector before the evening performance to parents.  From their seats in the highest tier in the arena, Hungerford Primary children absolutely sang their hearts out!  They returned to school very late that evening, tired but very happy after a fabulous day


Autumn term 2018 - Topic: The Ivory Trade

During the autumn term our topic involved learning about the Ivory Trade to raise money for the Kids' Tusk Force charity.  The children enjoyed making clay 'remember' beads and then painted them to sell (see the Elephant Sale article below).  The children spent time researching the history of the ivory trade and the impact on the elephant population.  In Geography, the children learned the location of African countries with focus on Kenya and in Science, they worked scientifically and systematically to create a 'poacher' alarm using switches.

Elephant Sale

Year 6 organised a very successful 'Elephant Sale' on October 18th.  the children had painted 'Remember Beads' to sell; each string was tagged with the name of an elephant who has been orphaned as a result of ivory poaching in Kenya.  The purpose of the sale was to raise enough money to 'adopht' an elephant calf for the school that has been rescued and taken to the DSWT Elephant Orphanage which is near Nairobi.  An amazing £545 was raised for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust from the sale of the elephant beads and other items such as homemade cakes and a raffle.  This now means the school is able to adopt an orphan elephant claf for the next 10 years and all the children can 'get to know' the elephant and hear about its progress.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get the children talking about a common cause and develop their sense of global citizenship!  A huge thank you to Year 6 and their parents for making a real difference!
