In Redwood today, we finally managed to dissect hearts! We worked in groups of 3 or 4 and identified the features of the heart that we had been looking at so far this half term.
We then spent some time dissecting the heart using scissors and sharing what we could see. Some of us even put our fingers inside the aorta!
We had a great time and wrote detailed recounts about the experience as part of our literacy writing.
This week in year 6, the writer of the week goes to Harvey Rosa who has produced a detailed, descriptive shape poem based on the heart. He has really grasped the emotion behind the poem also. Well done, Harvey!
Today in Redwood, we wrote a Pobble based on Flight – our Science Week topic! This week’s writer of the week goes to Vienna for producing a detailed and descriptive piece of writing. Well done, Vienna!
Year 6 spent their Literacy lesson writing a newspaper report in pairs. They were given a video stimulus of a ‘villain’ stealing from various places around Lawford Mead. The children then enjoyed working with their partner to write their newspaper report. Here is the report voted for in Redwood.
Redwood enjoyed sharing stories with Sycamore class this morning. The children got to read to each other and spend some time talking about their favourite books. They also went on a ‘Where’s Wally?’ hunt around the school.
