As part of science, in Year 6 we look at fossils and their role as evidence of evolution. Ruby has brought these lovely examples into class to share. Nature is beautiful.
In 6M we freed our butterflies on Friday. Big thank you to Mrs Horabin and Thomas for ordering our caterpillars. We hope they do their butterfly thing and pollinate lots of flowers and eat lots of pests. Good luck guys.
It's 'hoody time' in Year 6 and look how beautiful we all look. It is very hard to smile whilst looking into sunlight but we are sure you will agree that your children look amazing. We would like to say a huge thank you to the Friends of Shakespeare for paying for the Leavers' 2021 hoodies.
In Year 6 we have been taking a different approach to comprehension. We have been working as teams to discuss what we have read and collaborating to find answers. We feel that although we understand why we have had to distance, there is nothing like talking and debate to bring us together. See us in action in the slide show above.
Athletics Champions 2020 - 2021. Athletics Wyre and Fylde Champions. 5th place in Lancashire County.
Our amazing year 6 bubble has won the Fleetwood school's athletics competition which we completed as our P.E lesson back at the start of the school year. Not only was our score good enough to win the Wyre section, it was also good enough to finish 1st in the Wyre and Fylde competition (for the first time ever for our school!) - unbelievable! Not only that but it also gave us an incredible 5th place finish in the Lancashire county final standings. Thoroughly deserved after all your hard work and for continuing to push your personal bests.
A charitable donation
This year your fabulous and generous children have donated their gifts from the Year 6 staff to a local charity. Empowerment is a Blackpool based charity that helps families across Blackpool and the Fylde. Part of their work consists of supporting those children and their families who find themselves in crisis. In their role, the staff visit children in schools across the area and regularly visit Fleetwood schools. This time is vital for children as it gives them the opportunity to talk to someone who really has time to listen and support them. It always amazes us how kind and considerate the children of Shakespeare School are, they make us so very proud. Please enjoy Christmas and we look forward to welcoming your children back in 2021.
Best wishes and love from Year 6
