Monteney Mail Look what we’ve been up to! This half term has been an extremely busy one with many events and trips taking place. Our Year 4 children visited Eyam as their Creative Curriculum topic has been “The Plague”. As part of their visit the children visited the Plague cottages and the church and graveyard.

They also visited the Eyam Museum which

tells the story of the village. The children had a great time and the visit then led to some excellent descriptive writing. Children in Key Stage 2 have also had the opportunity to work with an artist as part of the Sheffield Children’s Festival. Our Year 3 and Year 6 children worked on large scale artwork, inspired by Jackson Pollock, called “100 metres Print”. This will be displayed in the arena during the Youth Sports Games when they are held in Sheffield, later this

year. The Year 4 and Year 5 children worked with a poet. They produced short poems, called Haikus about Sheffield in the past and in the present. These were recorded and will be available to listen to city-wide. We have more to celebrate in that we also have had 15 children’s work displayed as part of the Sheffield Young Artist competition. Well done to all of you that took part.

Well Done Y6! Last week our Year 6 children took their National End of Key Stage Tests (SATs). They took tests in Reading and Maths and for the first

children. We have been super impressed by their amazing attitudes during the We would like to take this opportunity week and their entire time in Year 6. They to say a huge WELL DONE to our Year 6 are SUPERSTARS!! time they also took a Grammar and Punctuation test.
