This afternoon, year 6 made a replica Chichen Itza out of cardboard and sugar cubes. The children enjoyed working in groups and showed great resilience! Well done, year 6!
This week our WOTW goes to Lily for writing an impressive diary entry as a character from a video. Well done, Lily!
Today we got the opportunity to watch the production at Hylands. It was a fantastic show put on by the pupils and our year 6’s were very respectful and have a wonderful afternoon!
I hope it has given some of our children the aspiration to want to be in our summer production!
This week in year 6 we have been giving out pen licences! Megan, Phoebe, Willow and Averie are the first ones to earn their pen licences based on their consistently, joined, neat handwriting! I look forward to handing out more pen licences over the next few weeks!
Friday in year 6, I gave Freddie and Alex the opportunity to show off their amazing Computing skills by teaching the class how to use transitions on Keynote. The boys really grasped the challenge and enjoyed leading the lesson. I am looking forward to giving the children in year 6 more opportunities to showcase their skills in class.
We have been sketching the Chichén Itzá, a famous Mayan structure in Mexico.
Today in year 6 we made our very own Pinata models. The children learnt that these are used in traditional Mexican celebrations as a way to entertain the family. The children have also written some key questions that they want to find out about our new topic!
Welcome back year 6! The WOW goes to Freddie for a detailed letter home from the main character of our new topic book ‘Holes’ detailing his feelings and experiences of the camp he has been sent to as a punishment.
Well done, Freddie.
Here is an extract:
Hey, how ya doin’? Hope you are ok. It already feels like I’ve been here for weeks! How am I going to survive here for 18 months?
Once I got off that dreaded bus, my hands slowly began to sweat from the blistering heat of the bus. I was incredibly bored sitting down, staring into space for four whole hours.
