    Welcome back!

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Welcome back Year 6! I hope you have all had a great break with your families. This term is a busy one for us, I'm not going to mention why, but we've got this guys! :-) Our new theme this term is 'Where is the Love?' and it is based around World War II. I know there are lots of you within the class that are interested in this so, I'm sure it will be a good one that the children will learn a lot about and hopefully enjoy too.

    Today year 6 looked at what it means to live a 'Good Life.' We discussed what we thought a good life meant and should people lead a good life because they want whatever reward is on offer or because they don’t want the consequence or because it is the right thing to do? We also discussed right and wrong and the beliefs that some people have in heaven and hell.

    English - Debate

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Today, year 6 took part in a debate. We set up the hall as a court room and they were split into 3 teams. As a team, they had to convince the judge that their character from Macbeth was guilty of all the tragedies that occurred in the story of Macbeth. They were all brilliant and took part in the court room exactly as they should have in a formal manner! Well done Year 6 - you were awesome! Special mention should go to the Macbeth team who were our overall winners as their counter arguments were immense!

    Can I explore the meaning of exploitation?

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    This afternoon year 6 explored the concept of exploitation. We looked at the meaning and what this might look like in different settings. The children made some really mature suggestions as to how exploitation might happen and what tricks people may use to lure vulnerable people into conforming.

    Orienteering

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Today, the children had to follow a map of the school playground to find numbers in order and stamp their cards just like they would in a real orienteering set up. The children were great, ran fast and worked really well in their pairs to be the first team back.

    Can I explain how light is reflected using mirrors?

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    This afternoon year 6 have been learning about how light travels in a straight line to hit an object, is then reflected into a mirror and then reflected from the mirror into our eyes in order to see the object. This object may be something behind a wall or even round a corner. We tested this knowledge by building a small assault course and completing it only using a mirror to see where we were going.

    STEAM Day!

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    What a fab day we all had today! The children made great things out of cardboard, learnt how to do some coding and made rockets! They did all this whilst working with their buddies from reception. Well done year 6 - you were amazing today!

    English - Drama

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Today, year 6 performed a news report, speaking to witnesses about King Duncan's murder while staying in Macbeth's castle. They were brilliant and we loved the way the groups moved seamlessly between reporters in a studio and witnesses.
