    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Year 6 had a very special visitor this morning. PC Mark Weedon came in to chat to them all about healthy vs unhealthy relationships online. Year 6 had the chance to impress PC Weedon with their online safety knowledge and they did not disappoint! They are excited to have PC Weedon come back in during their final term for some more engaging and important sessions.

    Year 6 have been thinking all about challenging stereotypes through understanding different Muslim interpretations of Jihad. We have been looking at different perceptions through optical illusions to careers and finding examples of misinterpreting something/seeing things in different ways. We have also been looking at stereotyping from the media and the impact this.

    Year 6 have been working hard leading up to today's project. They have planned, designed and have now been making their ideas come to life. When reading our class text (The Graveyard Riddle) we discovered that the pet dog, Frankie, was in need of a cushion in the graveyard hang out. We decided to put our skills to the test and design, following a criteria, somewhere for him to sit. Today, Year 6 have been measuring, creating the template, cutting, pining and sewing their cushions leaving for a seam allowance in order to fill them. They have been using their sewing skills prior to choose the appropriate stitch for their cushions.

    Literacy

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Year 6 have been learning the importance of writing explicit and cohesive instructions. They have been learning a dance, reading the transcript then turning these into a step by step guide. To test whether these were cohesive and clear they then paired up and read the instructions aloud for the group to act out. We found that in some steps we needed some more clarity, we edited and ironed them out then read aloud for the class to act out!
