    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    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.

    Literacy

    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.

    A challenge this week was to create a marble run from objects around the house and a marble obviously. Matilda and Ted created this giant course and had clearly spent a while perfecting it judging by the cheers at the end! Great work you two.

    Art

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    This week's art activity is having a go at some comic art. Listening and following professional advice from a comic artist on Youtube, the children are drawing portraits of people. Lauren has had a go at the person in the video and is going to try drawing a family member later in the week as well. It looks great so far Lauren, keep it up!

    Literacy

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Today year 6 have been using their senses to describe things in the kitchen. They had to choose some foods from the kitchen and get people to use different senses to identify them. They had to record responses and note which sense was most reliable. After that, they had to use Purple Mash to do some writing tasks including a chef mash cam.

    Coding

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    This week's coding activity challenge the class to get a turtle crossing a road safely without being hit my oncoming traffic. They could change the speed and add commands so the turtle could be moved in different directions. They also had the chance to add their own sound effects to personalise it.

    Class Text

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    We have been making great progress in our class text finding out how Tally is coping with transitioning to secondary school with autism. Maisie has already read the book and could not recommend it enough to the rest of us. She has very kindly offered to help me read the book to the class and is doing a wonderful job so far!

    Maths

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Maths this week has been a recap of place value and number which we did way back in Term 1! Year six are pretty confident at this now but there are always some tricky problem solving questions that catch them out. I'm pleased to say that lots of them solved this problem with the extra step of only using the digits once.
