13th-16th May 2019 Year 6 SATs Week
Year 6 First Aid Training: Each Year 6 class had a visit from St John Ambulance to give them First Aid training at the end of Term 4. In a day of practical sessions and information, the pupils were given the opportunity to learn how to treat a range of situations they might come across including the primary survey (DRABC), contacting the emergency services, recovery position, bleeding, asthma, shock and head injuries. The children practised their skills on each other so that they will be prepared if they ever need to help others. Well done to all of the children involved who picked up these useful skills quickly.
14th March 2019 - Year 6 classes visit to Lifeskills Centre Bristol: 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.
Term 3 Year 6 Art Work to inspire their writing - clay and sketched dragon eyes and oil pastel dragon tails, scales and feathers. These magical creatures will be making an appearance in the books they are going to be writing this term!
Year 5 and 6 Author Visit:
Thank you to Joffre White - Author, a UK Patron of Reading & Reading & Writing Motivator for his fantastic visit in January. After an assembly with the Year 5 & 6 classes, he did creative writing workshops with our Year 6 pupils to inspire their story writing. At lunchtime he did a Questions and Answers session in the Library - lots of children came to meet him including a huge number of boys who were very inspired by Joffre.

Year 6 Morfa Bay Residential Camp October 2018:
Many of our Year 6 pupils attended Morfa Bay on Camp. They had a fantastic time and were able to participate in a wide range of adventurous activities from abseiling and climbing to sea activities and mountain biking. It was great to see so many children overcoming fears and developing a new passion for some activities.
Thank you to all of the staff who helped make the week a success – without them these experiences wouldn’t happen. Thank you also to those who worked with the pupils who remained at school. These pupils took part in a wide range of activities linked to our current theme.
You can visit our St Martins Facebook page to view Year 6 Morfa Bay updates and uploads from the week's residential camp >> https://www.facebook.com/stmartinsschoolworle/
Tuesday 2nd October Sand Point Visit: Year 6 classes all enjoyed their visit to Sand Point where they found lots of little fossils on the beach at Middle Hope Beach as part of their geography work. The children participated in a variety of activities to develop team building and had an opportunity to apply their recently learnt Geography skills in field sketching, map work and classification.

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 Science Visit March 2018: Year 6 children carried our a heart dissection at the NSETC and really enjoyed the opportunity to see and handle a real life pigs heart and looked at samples under microscopes. The children behaved amazingly and represented the school really well. We would like to thank Mr Philips from NSETC for his support in enabling us to do this activity.
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.
