As part of Culture & Diversity fortnight, Milah from Redwood prepared a presentation on the Jewish faith. She visited both year 1 and year 6 classes. Well done Milah – we really enjoyed the presentation and appreciate the effort you put it. It was so interesting to learn about your culture and traditions. A special mention to Miss Lambert who helped Milah to make some traditional Jewish cookies called hamantaschen to share with the class.
What a half term it has been! Year 6 have worked so hard this half term with their SATs exams and also beginning to prepare for their leaver’s production: Love Me Tender.
Redwood decided to celebrate the by completing some ‘challenges’ in their class treat, including building marshmallow and spaghetti towers and moving malteasers with straws! Great team work! The winners were…the Hedgehogs! We then watched a film with popcorn.
Phew! What a great way to celebrate our achievements and relax.
In Year 6 we have been looking at ‘Fractured Fairytales’ based on the Grimm’s Brothers: Little Red Riding Hood. We chose this topic as part of our German day work, as the Grimm’s brothers were from Germany.
We wrote diary entries from the perspective of characters, formal letters as the wolf complaining to the local council about ‘grandma the brute’ and play-scripts with innovated dialogue.
Miss Giles then chose the ‘best’ scripts and those children acted as directors in small group to innovate a part of the traditional tale.
All groups did really well and two groups even went and performed their extracts to year 3. Well done year 6!
Just a reminder that we will be offering a FREE breakfast to all year 6 students from Mon-Thurs of SATs week from 8:15am. We will collect the children coming from the playground and they will be having their breakfast in the studio.
Please comment below if you are coming!
Why is breakfast thought to be the most important meal of the day?
