Crummock Water - Y6

In Crummock Water we are: Scientists, Authors, Leaders, Thinkers, Explorers, Creators, Readers, Mathematicians, Important, Respected and Valued.


We are a community of learners and support each other to ensure that we all move forwards in one direction – to achieve the best we can possibly be!


Underpinning all of our work, we focus on developing the 5 R’s- relationships, resourcefulness, reflecting, resilience and risk taking. It is important that we push ourselves and try new things. Our teacher, Mrs Brady, encourages us to have a go - even if it takes us out of our comfort zone. Often, this is where the optimum learning takes place and we discover new talents.


This term we are thoroughly enjoying reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell, we love following the story of Fred, Con, Lila and Max and have had many discussions on their survival skills. One of our reading questions in class (based on The Explorer) is, “Which character makes the best leader?”! 


Our topics this term are Rainforests and The Mayans. We are having lots of fun using atlases and maps to locate the rainforests across the World. We have started to research facts about The Ancient Maya and are thoroughly enjoying finding out about how they lived, especially the games they played like Pok-a-tok.


We have a variety of fun lessons, one of them being music! We are lucky enough to be taught to play a musical instrument with Mrs Tuffin, at the moment, it is 'Boom Whackers'. We have been practising our Sing Up song (Unstoppable) with Mrs Brady, ready for Sing Up day in June. We love to sing and work really well as a team during our music lessons!


Our School Councillors are Leoni and Alfie with Abi and Matthew as Shadows. Cameron and Abi are our Eco Councillors and they all attend regular meetings to help us make our school more eco-friendly. On Thursday's we are taught by Mr Pincombe and Mrs Sewell for PE and Maths. Mrs Evans helps us in class throughout the week. All of our adults help us learn and achieve our very best.


Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your School Councillor or your teacher know!
