Brunswick Primary School

Enjoy, Exceed, Excel

A massive thank you to the following children for living our legacy and being such great role models this week: Falcon: Alina Osprey: Virag Kestrel: Owl:Maisey Eagle:Theo Kite: Nyomi

Welcome to the Year 6 website! We have kicked off the year by discussing what an honour it is to be at the top of the school and having so many young people looking up to us. This led us on to brainstorming how to enhance our 'legacy' that we will leave behind, both as an individual and as a year group team. This is based on a book I recently read called 'Legacy' about the All Blacks rugby team in New Zealand.

We are having a big push to make sure that we represent ourselves the best we can by: living the values; taking pride in our uniform; grasping all opportunities that come our way; and being the best that we can be. We are even 'sweeping the sheds' just like the All Blacks do at the end of every game "because no one should clean up after an All Black". Do feel free to continue this at home!!

The video below will give you a little more insight into this Legacy that we are aiming to achieve.

A brilliant science fair today! The children had worked hard throughout Eureka and we hope you enjoyed!

Quotes from the Brunswick Away Team

Sienna: "I'm loving Kingswood because I've conquered my fears by getting on high activities with my friends' support. I'm loving sharing a dorm with my friends too!"          Wilfie: 'I’m so glad I listened to my partner and went to the top of the 3G swing, the views were amazing and it was really fun!          Kalani: 'I loved the zip wire. I was disappointed I didn't do the 3g swing and the zip wire made me realise I had nothing to worry about.'          Kip: "My favourite thing was archery because it was something new that I have never done before."          Scarlet: 'I ignored the fact I felt scared and just went for it. I am so proud of myself. I want to challenge myself again because it's fun.'          Roel said: ”If it looks fun, I’m doing it!!”          Carter (to Theo): "You've inspired me to do the power fan!"          Mila: "My favourite activity was the 3G swing because I went on the highest level and I dropped down in shock!"          Yasmin: "Archery is hard, but it’s good because you get to shoot things!"          Ella (about Jacob's Ladder): "A great way to build up confidence and team work."          Winni: "[Jacobs ladder] is a challenge you need to get there! Once your fingers touch it you're determined to get on and climb up!"          Theo: "Mr Pannett, you'll never light the fluff we've tried so many times." Mr Pannett: *lit it first time*

Morning from the firelighters in the woodland at camp Kingswood!

Another chockablock day ahead of us: high equilibrium (a seesaw in the sky); learning to light fires in the woods; orienteering around the campus; archery by the lake and, of course, the teachers' favourite evening activity - the disco!!

Last night we had two options: scrapheap challenge - lots of creative children with cardboard and the film night for those who were needing a bit more rest! All enjoyed by all and everyone asleep by 11 after more hot chocolate and a biscuit.

Big high (and hyper from e-numbers) waves from all!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Rob the author of our text for this Dare to be Different topic and what an inspiration he was! Be sure to be curious and do things which aren't normally your cup of tea to discover more of what's out there!

Year 6 E Safety

Knowing about E Safety is so important for Year 6 children that we've added this section about what's good and bad about the internet and ways you can get yourself out of bad situations. The website we've chosen even has fun games you can play while learning E Safety. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
