Expressive Dance

User Rating:  / 1

This half term we have started to create expressive dances in P.E. We are basing our dances on our knowledge of World War Two events and are thinking carefully about what life would have been like for children during the war.

We have also started our new topic - Australia and are excited to be finding out new things about this amazing country.

Tomorrow we have our Inspire Workshop and are looking forward to sharing how we learn in Literacy lessons with you.


Spooky Writing in Year 6

User Rating:  / 1

We are reading Room 13 by Robert Swindells - it is realy spooky!  We don't know what lies hidden in Room 13 however this has not stopped our imaginations running wild and coming up with lots of ideas of what it could be...

We have used suspense in our writing and described things without actually telling the reader what it is!

We cannot wait to find out what happens, or what is behind that door!

The year six children have continued to work hard this week on various Christmas projects including making peppermint creams and creating artisitc calendars. The phase also enjoyed performing their Christmas Carol Concert . We were extremely proud of the childrens fantastic singing and confidence in the church and are looking forward to sharing this with the rest of the school tomorrow.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support this term and also for the generous Christmas presents that we have received from you. We hope that you have a wonderful Christmas (if you are celebrating) and a Happy New Year!

D&T Bird Houses

User Rating:  / 1

We have really enjoyed making Bird Houses this week in D&T.  We first had to saw some wood to specific measurements, then used the glue gun safely to fix everything together before putting on a cover, painting them and making a bird to go inside!  We are so proud of them and how carefully we worked with the equipment.

Advent Reflection

User Rating:  / 0

We have been reflecting about advent in Year 6 and thinking about what it means to Christians across the world.  While we do this an advent candle has been lit.  We have thought about the traditional story of Christmas according to the Bible.  We have also discussed the symbolism within this festival.  Year 5 and 6 are looking forward to our traditional carol service next Tuesday following our rehearsal today.  We are looking forward to seeing you at the church at 6.15pm.


The Snowman

This week in literacy Year 6 are writing newspaper articles.  We have written newspapers based on 'The Snowman' and how a variety of different people from around the world have spotted a young boy and a snowman flying in the air!  We have used all of the features of a newspaper and ensured that we uplevelled our writing afterwards.

Science Fun

This week in science year six have been learning about adaptation and Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. The children did some fantastic research on the special features that animals have to survive in their habitats.

We have also been completing mock SATs test and will continue with these next week. The year six teaching team are delighted with the progress that you have made so far this year. Well done and keep up the great work :)march of the penguins-12130

Autobiographies and Henri Rousseau

User Rating:  / 0

This week in writing we have each created an autobiography, but imagining that we are fifty years old! It's been great fun to elaborate on future events - but to write them in past tense. We've enjoyed looking at the teachers' autobiographies for ideas as well as Michael McIntyre's, Usain Bolt's, Jacqueline Wilson's and Roald Dahl's. We used these examples to make our writing interesting and to 'hook' the reader in.

We have also been learning about the artist Henri Rousseau in our topic lessons. We studied his style of painting and have started to draw our own animal designs in Rousseau's style.

Henry Rousseau Inspired Art

User Rating:  / 2

This week we are looking at some of the art produced by the artist Henry Rousseau and how he used a 'layering' technique to create perspective.  We are using his art as a stimulus for our own drawings in response to our topic 'The Weird World of Animals'
