St Matthew’s Got Talent

This week, the Year 6 children have started their “intense” rehearsals for our end of year play. On such a hot, sweaty week, they have worked really hard to put all of their rehearsal pieces together on stage. Other children in the school have been wondering what’s been going on with the all the different noises that have been coming from the hall. They will have to wait for our dress rehearsal to find out more…


Over the past couple of weeks we have learnt a lot about our topic.

In English, we are currently reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. We have written lots of about text so far: poems, letters and diary entries.

We are totally loving our end of the day reads and can’t wait to find our what happens next.

Did you know that technology has changed loads over the past 50 years? The way we travel, communicate and shop have all changed. So have our home comforts, appliances and entertainment. Just think about it! Toys have also changed dramatically over the past 50 years just take a look below.


We have been learning an interesting song called ‘I’m a friendly robot’.

Dragons Den in Year 6

The Year 6 class are now well underway with their business projects for the Enterprise project. They had a “Dragon’s Den” experience with a real-life bank manager where they had to pitch their products and business plan to see if they were approved a loan. Although some groups had a rocky start with this, they all ended up with some money to start up their business in the end. They have started to produce adverts and logos to create a brand for their businesses. Their next step is to start buying and making their products. Miss Szarko is a very enthusiastic taste tester to make sure the quality of the product is up to scratch!
