Our day of celebration

By Whitebeam, in Year 6 - Friday, 22 October 2021

We have had a spectatcular day celebrating today! We discussed what we feel makes us good and created some eye-catching posters full of our ideas. We have also taken part in a 'Press and Play' story session which involved us wearing headphones to hear a story for us to act out. Everyone enjoyed this and we all felt like we really were in Pompeii and experiencing a volvanic eruption. After this, we had our breaktime at the local park with the rest of the year group and this was received incredibly well by everyone. To end the day, we watched a film of the core text we have read this half term - Coming to England by Floella Benjamin. All in all, it was a day to remember and one we all deserved!

Times table fun

By Whitebeam, in Year 6 - Friday, 22 October 2021

TTRockstars day was a huge success in Whitebeam class yesterday. After practising on the iPads, we put our skills to the test by playing times table board games (which was accompanied with some very quick responses and much laughter).They were great fun and a super way to practise these core skills. Perhaps we could challenge you at home to a game of times table bingo? Who will be victorious in your household?

We are Rockstars!

By Year 6, in Year 6 - Friday, 22 October 2021

Timestables Rockstars Day was an absolute blast in Year 6! We spent some time competing with each other and trying to improve our scores. We are all aiming to be Rock Heroes! In the afternoon, we played new games that support our learning of times tables. These are definitely games that we will be using for the rest of the year to help us practise!

All About Light!

By Willow Class, in Year 6 - Wednesday, 20 October 2021

During today's Science lesson, we had so much fun documenting all our learning about light! We have thoroughly enjoyed our topic this half term and we have put so much effort into our presentations. 

Pyjamas and popcorn evening in BHM

By Year 6 team, in Year 6 - Tuesday, 19 October 2021

As part of our Black History Month learning, Year 6 returned to school last night once it was dark. We all wore our pyjamas and settled down with a comfy cushion from home to watch a film together. Popcorn and hot chocolate was enjoyed by all and we left feeling a little sleepy but with smiles on our faces. The film was incredibly aspirational and thought provoking. We are looking forward to sharing our thoughts in the classroom on how times and language has changed.

Peeking with periscopes!

By Willow Class, in Year 6 - Friday, 15 October 2021

This week, we had a brilliant time using our Science learning all about light to create our own periscopes during Design and Technology. Once making sure that our periscopes were well camouflaged, we went to test them out on the other classes. As sneaky as we were, it is safe to say that we were eventually caught!
