Hello Year Six,
So our first summer half term has come to the end and you weren't even in school. Our second summer half term will be different again, with hopefully some of you returning to school and others continuing to be at home. Whichever one you are, your final half term of Y6 should have been very different to the one that you will experience. However, it will certainly be one that you will never forget.
So this half term break is a real break. There will be no home learning activities or learning challenge for you to complete, therefore I want you to do lots of fun things with your family. You should be really proud of yourselves for working so hard during lockdown. I can't wait to hear all about your half term antics in just over a weeks time.
Until then, stay safe and alert. I'll see you very soon.
Take care, Miss D

Hi Year 6! I'm thinking of you, as always and hope you are well.
Methuselah - The World's Oldest Loving Tree
I love trees - I hope you do too. I read a book called ‘The Overstory’ by Richard Powers and it opened my mind to thinking about ancient trees and forests. They help us think about time in a different way and I wanted to share this with you.
Did you know, the oldest living tree in the world is more than 4,800 years old! This means it was alive during Ancient Egyptian times! The tree is called “Methuselah” an ancient Bristlecone Pine, found living in California’s White Mountains in the USA. It’s exact location is top secret to keep it safe.
The oldest tree in the UK is believed to be the Fortingall Yew in Perthshire, thought to be between 2,000 and 3,000 years old! This means it was living during the Bronze Age, before the Romans invaded Britain! The Ankerwycke Yew in Berkshire is over 1,000 years old and Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn are thought to have met there!
My favourite tree is much younger. We think it is 30 years old. It's a Japanese Maple - Acer Senkaki is it's botanical name. I love it and it is in my garden.
Do you have a favourite tree? If so, we would love to hear from you.
Missing you Year 6 - keep smiling! Mrs Pak
