Year 6 Leavers Performances: The Year 6 children and staff have had a busy and fun packed few weeks to end their time at St Martin’s School. They performed ‘Porridge’ in front of a range of audiences including pupils and parents. The children were brilliant and showed amazing talent with their singing, dancing and acting skills. At the end of the performances a collection was made for CLIC Sargent.
We had some lovely comments from our parents/carers and here are a few; “What a fantastic show it was enjoyed by all, thank you for the hard work the pupils and teachers have put in. Well done Year 6 you should all be very proud of yourselves… Well done everyone I’m such a proud parent it was fantastic… Just fabulous, well done everyone involved.”
At the end of term, the Year 6 pupils raised a fantastic amount of over £653 for their chosen charities through fundraising activities, games and stalls during School. This amount will be split equally between Headway (improving life for those suffering brain injury) and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Year 6 Lifeskills Educational Visit: The Year 6 classes enjoyed their visit to the Lifeskills Centre, Bristol during Term 4, where they had a fantastic opportunity to experience real life scenarios. They learnt about road awareness, hazards in the home, safety in the garden and at the beach and worked with trained experts.
Year 6 Visit to the Woods November 2017: In their theme 'Could you be the next Bear Grylls?', Year 6 have been learning about survival and conditions in different biomes. As part of their survival training they have been learning about what equipment and skills are needed to survive in different locations with varied climate and wildlife. The children walked up to Worlebury Woods where they practiced First Aid training and shelter building. The children were able to treat each others fake wounds really well with the new skills they had learned during a St John's Ambulance School Workshop.
Year 6 Residential Camp Morfa Bay September 2017: All of the children and staff who went to Morfa Bay had a fantastic time. They enjoyed a week of adventure, fun and excitement.

Highlights of the week included the muddy assault course, the sea activities, zipwire, climbing activities, not to mention the WW1 experience, orienteering, archery and evening activities.
