    Art Attack!

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    We have been developing our shading skills in Art. We followed a tutorial demonstrating how to create depth and tone. We know how to consider where the light bounces off objects and how to show this in our own representations.

    We Know How to Learn

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    One of the best ways to learn is to work with a peer; someone you can trust. Year 6 put this into action today, teaching each other new skills. Our problem solving in maths was much more fun when it was explained by a buddy. It also gave me a rest! Well done Year 6; you make brilliant teachers!

    Champions Do Extra

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Our topic for Term 3 is Champions Do Extra (Sport). We will be focussing on the following enquiry questions which the hildren have created: Why don't the main TV channels promote female sports? Why do footballers earn more than paramedics? What would be the ultimate sports kit? What effect does sky diving have on your body? Which sport is the healthiest? When did sports tournaments begin? What makes a sport extreme? What will sports be like in a 1,000 years time? Throughout this topic we will be considering what values successful sporting heroes display.

    Our Amazing Bodies

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    To link with our topic we are learning about the human body and how to live a healthy lifestyle. The children have been learning about our vital organs. They were set the challenge of drawing them in the correct place on an outline of a body. This was a brilliant session; lots of fun had by all!

    Thank You!

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Just a little note to thank you for your kindness. I was overwhelmed by the thoughtful cards, gifts and messages. My Christmas break was jammed back with visits to family and friends, eating lots of cheese and chocolate and enjoying several naps and lie ins. I hope that you all had special times too.
