    Geography

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Geography for this week has seen year six looking at America. They have had to carry out their own research into certain things from land use, climate and wildlife. Emily has done some great research into the snapping turtles that are native to North America and produced a great sketch. She has used the internet well to research all the important details about these animals.

    Literacy

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In Literacy this week, the class have taken on the role of being directors and producers of their own movies. First of all they had to create a script for their film. We had some great ideas such as a Wimbledon match, The Hidden Truth (about a crime involving Piers Morgan), a documentary about the life of children in lockdown and many more. Once they had their script, they needed to find some A list actors to play the main role. First, they researched actors that would suit the role and considered why before writing them a letter inviting them to auditions. Filming will begin soon on these exciting movies!

    Maths

    In maths this week, Year 6 are looking at properties of shapes and angles. They are pretty confident with this now as we have looked at it several times over the last two years. The biggest challenge might be finding the right equipment for some of the questions at home!

    Drama

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In Literacy this week, the class have been trying to convince people to have a ride on their new roller coaster. They also had to perform some drama as if they were actually on the roller coaster. Tom did this from the comfort of his own home although his face while on the roller coaster might suggest it wasn't so comfortable! It looks like a great ride though! Great performance Tom, well done!

    A brave activity this week was to carry out a spider Safari in back gardens. The children had to look for different spiders, draw them, add details and try and name them. They could also have a look for them online to find their scientific name. Annabel produced some wonderful sketches of spiders with sizes and names.

    Matilda has created this wonderful acrostic poem for Diversity Week. This was some extra learning that she has taken on herself and the choice of words are perfect.

    Today the class were tasked with imagining and writing about flying on a mythical/magical creature. We had dragons, hippogriffs, Pegasus and many more! Some wonderful description was used to describe their journey and how they weightlessly soared across the sky! Here is a part of Tara's work.

    Diversity

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    To celebrate Diversity Week the children have been set lots of activities to help them understand what Diversity is and what it looks like in the world. To help understand what diversity actually means, Lauren did some research and then put this information into a presentation all about diversity. It's great to see the time that has been taken to deepen her understanding about a very important topic.
