Year 6 visit to Crucial Crew
Crucial Crew gives Year 6 pupils life skills to deal with and avoid a range of potentially hazardous situations. It is supported by staff from Rotherham Road Safety, South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue.
On 12th March, Year 6 travelled to the Lifewise Centre, Rotherham as part of their Crucial Crew trip.
• The visit covered the following aspects:
• Road safety
• How to travel safely on a bus
• Internet safety
• First aid
• As part of the learning the children visited a replica pub, a shop, a playground and a courtroom. They learned about the consequences involved if you break the law. E.g. stealing from shops; buying/ drinking alcohol or other illegal substances.
The children felt they had gained a vast amount of knowledge and skills in how to deal with everyday experiences they may encounter in the future.
Celebrate writing in Year 6
Year 6 have published their own e-book on the iTunes/ Ibook store and we would be grateful if as many people as possible would buy it so they can raise money to adopt an orangutan – it’s only 49p!
Read a free sample or buy Save the Orangutans by Year 6, Kingfisher Primary. You can read this book with Apple Books on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac.
Y6 arrived safe and well at Walesby Forest earlier today. The children have enjoyed taking part in different activities including tackling the climbing wall. They are all looking forward to songs around the campfire later this evening.

On Tuesday war was declared in Year 6 so the children had to pack their suitcases and were evacuated to Wales (aka the school hall!) The evacuees boarded the train and arrived just after lunch at their destination, sitting like cattle in an auction, anxiously waiting to be chosen by a host family. Once all the children were housed they enjoyed taking part in a range of World War 2 themed activities: Clay medals, propaganda posters, model Lancaster bomber or spit fires, designing a victory garden and the afternoon’s favourite making an Anderson shelter. During the air raid there were a number of children who lost their limbs, one of our parents ended up on crutches and one family had to send their father to the hospital whilst mum remained and looked after her evacuees!! At the end of the day, there was an announcement on the wireless declaring war was over – the children could return home!
Welcome back after the summer holidays! We hope you had a lovely break and are looking forward to your final, exciting year at Kingfisher, where we hope to be the best we can be!
