Well done to the Kingfishers and Hedgehogs for an AMAZING leavers assembly. You have made not just the Year 6 staff proud, but also the whole school extremely proud of your achievements you have accomplished this year. Well done to the award winners of 2021, you have all shown how much you deserve those awards, and remember from those achievements that you have now left behind your legacy at Forest Park.
You have all SPARKLED this year and throughout your time at Forest Park, and have shown us that you are ready to embark on your new chapter at High School.
We all wish you all the best and remember to follow the Forest Park ethos of SPARKLE! We will miss you all, and remember to keep in touch and let us know where your future has taken you.

Year 6 - our memories of Forest ParkClick here for our memories of Forest Park
This half term, during our science learning Year 6 have been studying evolution and inheritance. As part of this, we have looked at the work of Charles Darwin and read the book On the Origin of species. We used this to research animals and create a non-chronological report comparing two animals from the same species.
During our science learning, we experienced a ‘virtual Chester Zoo’ day. During this day, we took part in a task to conduct an experiment in the style of Darwin; we experimented with different beaks and different food items to see how bird’s beaks have adapted. We also took part in activities to see how animals have adapted to suit their environment. We explored how animals use their different senses. We put our hand in different boxes to guess what we could feel. We also directed a partner that was bind folded through an obstacle course to test our sense of hearing.
Year 6 have also had the exciting opportunity to meet the author Jules Pottle over zoom. Jules Pottle is the author of the book Mollie bird, a book that we have read as part of our science learning. She read us her new story about a spider and answered many of our questions. When asked one piece of advice she said ‘believe in yourself’. Jules Pottle has inspired lots of us to work hard, persevere and even become an author in the future!
