In Class Ocean we enjoy challenging ourselves and aim to be confident and independent learners.

We follow the Year 6 National Curriculum and each term enjoy school trips or invite visitors to class to compliment our topics. We really enjoy regular Forest School and Art and DT opportunities.

During our First weeks of Year 6 we visit the Isle of Wight for a week-long residential with our Year 6 friends from our GloWmATCH Cluster schools. We see the friends we make on this trip throughout the year at other events and when we move on to secondary school.

We take part in a lot of sports competitions including; netball, football, tag- rugby, cricket, gymnastics and bell boating.      

In Class Ocean we enjoy being role models and have many responsibilities around school; such as being buddies to reception children, completing duties during our daily worship and leading events as house captains and school councillors.

Goodbye and Good Luck Class of 2021

Wednesday 21st July was a very emotional day. We spent the day together playing games, signing t-shirts and remembering our funny moments through the year. We went round to look at our beautiful tiles on the wall before we got ready for our leavers’ service and an afternoon of watery and colourful fun. Good luck to all of our amazing young people who are about to begin a whole new adventure! We know that you will shine brightly in September and beyond!! We will miss you all!

Huntley’s Covid Time Capsule!

On Wednesday 21st July 2021, we buried our Covid Time Capsule. It was really exciting to see the things that were going into the capsule and to think that in many years, the future children at Huntley School will find out all about what life has been like for us over the last 18 months!

     

Our Visit to Huntley On Sea!

Classes Ocean and Stream had a wonderful time at Ocean on Sea this morning. We loved taking part in all of the activities and having fun with our friends and buddies! A huge thank you to the PTFA for all of their hard work in organising such a memorable and exciting event!!

Seaside Day!

We have been learning about the seaside this term. We have located seaside resorts on a map and found out what it was like to go the seaside in the past but the best event was ‘seaside day’ organised by the PTFA for the whole school. We had a great time on the field eating ice creams, playing games and going on the bouncy castle. We enjoyed having our photo taken in the beach huts and sitting on the giant deckchair. Then we wrote some fantastic postcards to our family. Thank you PTFA for all your hard work.

Belated Picnic with our Buddies!

We had a fun picnic with our Y6 buddies. We mad a sandwich, had lots of tasty treats and played parachute games.
