We came to school with crazy hair and wearing something spotty today for BBC Children in Need. We had lots of fun and most importantly, raised lots of money for a very worthwhile charity.

Some Place Value fun in Year 6 🎲

World Mental Health Day 2021

We supported World Mental Health Day by coming to school wearing something yellow and by donating money to Reach Mentoring. Throughout the day, we took part in lots of activities that we like to do to keep a positive mindset. We practised some yoga and breathing techniques, we listened to some meditation stories, we talked, we played with our friends, we exercised and we completed some mindfulness colouring. We know that it is as important to look after our mental health as it is to look after our physical health.

We enjoyed taking part in the ‘Our World’ Young Enterprise programme. We learned which countries of the world rely on each other for resources. We were introduced to the steps needed in setting up a business and trading internationally, as well as broadening our understanding of import and export.

Our class novel is The Cuckoo Child by Dick-King Smith. In the story, Jack steals an ostrich egg to try to hatch it at his farm. We were delighted to see and handle a real ostrich egg today. They’re gigantic! The largest egg of any bird.

Learning all about the importance of resilience during our B.O.U.N.C.E workshop.

We really enjoyed our bicycle skills session which was taken by Dave from Sustrans. We also learned about the different parts of a bicycle, as well as talking about the importance of road safety.

Year 6 children thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Book Fair 📖📚

We have been learning to identify the features of a good story opening. We enjoyed sifting through a variety of books in order to determine the opening lines that made us want to read on, as well as opening lines that we found quite dull.

We have been using our map skills to locate European countries as part of our WAU topic on Europe.

We have been learning about effective Story Openings. We watched a short film called ‘Alma’, discussed the setting and wrote our own openings. Have a look at our lovely display ❄️

We have been learning about instructions. We made some yummy muffin pizzas and wrote a clear set of instructions. We had great fun! 🍕🍕🍕
