    Art

    An additional art activity. This was a tutorial video that I saw online and thought it looked like an amazing piece of art. I sent it to the class for the, to have a go at if they wanted. Lauren did have a go and produced this incredible piece of art showing a night/day visual picture of a lighthouse that fits perfectly with the theme of our class book.

    Science

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Year six carried out an experiment to how far an object would travel down a ramp using. The variable changed was the material on the ramp to see which would allow the greatest/least distance traveled. The focus was on how they would present their results. Annabel had a goo idea about which material would allow this toy car to travel furthest, she then went on to present a graph and write a paragraph presenting her results.

    Persuasive writing.

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Year 6 have been creating and advertising products that would sell well during World War 2. They have had to use persuassive writing techniques to convince people that they need this product! We had some wonderful and imaginative ideas! Here are a few of them. A backpack that stores everything you need for a night in the air raid shelter. It even comes with a pillow attached so you can get comfy for the night. Invisible blackout curtains that guarantee to let no light escape! Make those nights last longer without running the risk of giving the Luftwaffe a target. The Technomask. An advanced gas mask that dploys body armour, shield and alerts you to incoming bombs. Cirrian the robot: a robot that can do the house work and protect you from the enemy! Trouble Bubble: full protection from incoming dangers during a raid! New tasty cakes that have many nutritional benefits and lastly, the Handy Dandy shop. It sells anything you need at a very good price!

    Today's PE challenge was to get outside and do some sort of activity with water in the sun! We had slip and slides, water fights and sponge relay races with obstacles! It all looked great fun and allowed everyone to burn off some energy!

    Music

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Year 6 had a look at some videos of Stomp performing on stage. They use everyday objects to create music and perform with. The kids were then challenged with creating a beat using some objects they could find around the house (without breaking anything)! They used dice, squeaky toys, water in glasses, saucepans and brushes to perform for the camera. Some great videos were sent in and there is a lot of musical talent in that group!
