Our superstar this week is William Pickston who wrote an amazing poem about his experience of the National Nutcracker competition.
We entered a competition at school
to perform and film a dance,
Lots of other children entered,
I didn't think we stood a chance.
We waited to see if we had won,
Mrs Mills told us what we wanted to hear,
She came into our class one day,
Year 6 let out a great big cheer!
The coach came to school on a Sunday,
It was a very early start.
All the class were so excited,
And we all looked really smart!
Mums and my dad got to come along,
to share our special day,
We set off to the Opera House,
It seemed a very long way.
The Nutcracker ballet was amazing,
It was colourful and bright,
The music, costumes and the dancing
Were such a terrific sight!
We got to have a photograph
I would very much like to say
Thank you for your help Mrs Dickson
I will always remember that day!

A busy week revising in maths and writing about Rose Blanche in English. We are perfecting our answers for SATs papers in Guided Reading and have continued with our study of Evolution in Forest School. As we are getting closer to May 8th we are taking steps to close gaps in our learning and identifiying where we need to do more work independently. We have had great fun dressing up for Comic Relief and raising money at the same time. Everyone is working hard, however one person has shone this week by helping others, attending Maths Workshop and tackling the fraction, decimal and % time challenge and persevering with 15mins of fitness. Well done Harry :)

Only one more test left-BRING IT ON!
We have all attended breakfast club where we have tucked into toast, crumpets, muffins, cereal, croissants and yougurts.

Our fantastic trip to The Royal London Opera House on 19th December...it was amazing!
Our first star of 2016 is...Nathan D. A great start to the New Year he has put his head down and is determined to work hard as we head towards SATs in May. In Science he really 'shone' with his enthusiasm to learn about Carl Linnaeus and his classification system.

This week's Star is Jacob, he was poorly last week but showed great respect on our trip and asked some really thought provoking questions. He always contributes well in class discussions too! He has also had a good week this week too-representing the school in the netball tournament and helping his team to secure 2nd place.
Mr G was so impressed with Luke this week when he spent time in the Year 5 class with him whilst I was away with the netballers that he asked if he could have him as a Star this week too! I was so proud to hear about his enthusiasm for learning when finding the fraction of a large shape that he had constructed.
Brandon is our first star of the new term. A 'Mr Always'. He has a great sense of humour and a great attitude towards all of his learning.

We then had a visit from Mr Richardson with his tractor. On Thursday we had an amazing interactive food lesson with Darren from Roots to Food where we learnt so much about different food groups and also encouraged two teams in a 'Ready, Steady, Cook' style challenge. Our Star this Week is the lovely Freya who is a Little Miss Always.
A 'different' week this week. I wasn't in for 3 days so Mrs Willis held the fort! A balanced argument has been written on the topic of attending school on Saturday mornings-not a popular choice! A good time had by all at the disco too.
2 Stars this week, Alex and Liam. Well deserved Stars. I'm really proud of both boys for hard work, maturity and a great attitude towards their individual learning too.
Nearly two thirds of the way through our final year! How time flies! SATs are approaching and we are working very hard. This week we have written a biased argument in English on the topic of dancing bears. We have completed comprehension exercises and looked at the book Coolies in Guided Reading, scale factor in Maths along with Big Art, Forest School, RE and a mini football tournament in PE. The week ended with Sport Relief where we all tried to run the mile circuit that School Council marked out and supervised with Mrs Oakley.
Our Star this week is Luke-a great week, working hard across the curriculum and putting in that little bit extra at writing workshop after school on Thursday :)
I can't believe we only have two terms left; this year has flown by-as usual for Year 6! Another great week in Asia, a netball tournament, Forest School, Easter Service and finally our brilliant Year 6's organised the annual 'egg hunt' for the whole school. Splitting into groups of 3 or 4 the children devised questions, clues, maps for children to have fun answering or finding, in order to be rewarded with an Easter lollipop provided by the PTA.
Our last 'Star' of the term is Charlotte H, a real Little Miss Always. An absolute delight to have in class, Charlotte is a real asset for us all at Baston.

A brilliant start to the term for Nathan C-really focused and studious-keep it up!
Lots of preparation underway for SATs, we are nearly there now! All of the children are working really hard so choosing a star is really difficult! However, Katie has been 'on fire' this week in all subjects!
Celebrations in the 'Williams' household as Marcus scooped 3rd prize in the Rotary Club Art Competition.
Another tiring week practising for our SATs which are now only 4 school days away!

Also this week we have been gathering evidence for our final writing moderation, another week in the life of Year 6!
Our Star this week is Thomas who really is a superstar. Thomas doesn't always realise how brilliant he actually is. A true 'gentleman', polite and hard-working Thomas is a real asset to have in our class.

Just when you think you can't possibly achieve anymore...Year 6 pull another ACE!!!! A superb performance for their Leaver's Production. Everyone was 'wowed' by their acting, singing and dancing: tears flowed and emotions ran high!
A very secreative mission was pulled off too-how naughty, pulling such a successful surprise on their class teacher! Video to follow.
Although an extremely decision to make Mrs Willis and I chose Jacob as our final Star of the Week. Jacob has worked hard throughout the year; he has been a valuable member of the class and constantly keeps us all updated on current affairs (be it his own or worldwide!). We'll miss you Jacob!
The start of our final week; we spent the morning looking closely at the first part of Macbeth, then we acted it out with our own interpretations-interesting! Tomorrow we will be making pomegranate ice-cream and pond-dipping, no time to waste, we're cramming our learning in still!
