Once we approach the end of Year 6 and the amazing learning journey the children of Fielding have been on, it is a time to celebrate their successes and achievements through the various graduation events we hold. While there is currently a small team in place that are responsible for organising and arranging each of these, it would be fantastic if any other parents/carers could volunteer any spare time they have to help with organisation.
If you are interested in being involved, please contact Beth Waters at: email@example.com
The year 6, end of year disco theme this year will include neon lights with glow in the dark face paint. Permission slips will be available soon to allow children to have it administered - without permission they will not be allowed face paint. Please keep looking for more details soon.

Purplemash, a fantastic resource which can be accessed through this link: https://www.purplemash.com/sch/fielding Children each have an individual login. Please ask their teacher if they don't know it. Children now login through the purple login and password on the left of the screen. They have been creating amazing games in ICT, ask them to show you.
The English team in school have worked hard to identify 40 appropriately challenging books for the children in Year 6. The recommended reading lists contain 40 age-appropriate books that have been organised by lexile rating (how difficult the text is to read) and have been linked to the corresponding colour-bands. A description of the books has also been included so that children are able to 'cherry-pick' their favourites according to their book-band level and their personal interests.
While it is NOT compulsory there are school wide incentives - At the end of each half-term, teachers will award bronze, silver and gold certificates in reward assembly to pupils who have read a set number of books from their year group list AND completed a short reading response activity in their reading records (where possible).
Ideas for these short reading responses might be any one of the following;
- Describing settings and characters from the story
- Identifying possible alternative endings
- Predicting what might be in a sequel (the next book if the story was carried on)
- Summarising the story in 6 bullet points
- Writing a book review
- Creating a new character
If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Friday 12th January was a rather unusual day for Upper Phase as we had a special visit from Neal Zetter, a London based author and poet. The children were delighted to be a part of a special performance session by Neal who shared a range of his works, including a Year 6 favourite, 'Ba nana nana nana nana.'
Alongside the performances, Neal took the time to talk to the children about what inspired him to become a poet and how he selects his content. The children were quite surprised when he told them how old he was when he first began writing!
The day ended with a book signing in the school library. Children were given the opportunity to purchase one of Neal's poetry books and have it signed by the man himself.
What a weekend we have had here at Fielding Primary School; it was the Christmas Fair! Four hours of action packed fun celebrating the season. While many of the rooms were stuffed with fun-filled activities, a Santa's Grotto and fabulous food stalls, there was one room in particular that was really drawing in the crowds... the sports hall.
Why I hear you ask? The Year 6 'Dragon's Den' stalls.
Earlier in the half term, the year 6 children broke into groups and pitched their own stall ideas to raise money for the PTFA. 6 amazing winners were chosen (however it was very hard to decide fue to the standard of entries!) and their stalls came to life at the fair. Each stall was managed professionally and sensibly by all of our Year 6 children and we are so proud of what they achieved.
With our new Geography topic covering recycling and the water cycle, Year 6 have been intermittently visiting the Sky Academy in Osterley over the previous two weeks. While at the academy, each class were introduced to the world of film-making and news broadcasting. Their mission, if they chose to accept it, was to produce a breaking news story on the topic of 'making the world a better place.' After being split into four groups (with each being given their own private studio to work in!) each group produced sections using state of the art cameras and green screen technology. This all went toward a final news report focusing on elements such as renewable energy sources, climate change and recycling. The overall project was then fused together and the children were able to watch it back.
We can't wait for Sky to send over our USB wristbands so each child will have their own video to bring home! Watch this space...
