We started our cooking and nutrition topic today by completing some market research. We were aiming to find out what are people’s favourite types of burger, and conducted surveys to ask about choices of patties, buns and sauces. We are going to use the results of our surveys to inform our product designs.
As part of our Remembrance Day activities, Year 6 spent time on Friday reflecting on the sacrifices made my many people and wrote poetry as their own tribute to the people who lost their lives. The children took turns to read their work aloud, and share their own reflections as a group.
We had a great turn out for our Halloween Disco the children all looked Great
Our Best dressed Winners
On this rainy afternoon, we came together with our buddies to share our favourite stories.
Some of us stayed in our own classroom.
Some of us went up to the Year 6 classroom. It was a lovely relaxing way to end our half term.
All classes have had a great History block over the last three weeks in school!
From the Stone Age to the Industrial Revolution, Ancient Greece, The Gunpowder Plot to name just a few, there has been lots and lots of learning about the past.
This block has also seen our very first ever ‘Young Historians’ recognised for going the extra mile and extending their knowledge with our Young Historian Challenges.
This week Year 6 have been learning about the classic poem – The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.
The children studied the metaphors used to create dramatic effects, and acted these out in freeze-frame dramas. Everyone had a lot of fun but it also helped us to understand how to create drama in our own work. The children finished the week off by writing their own free-verse style poetry on ‘The Stickman’, inspired by Alfred Noyes’ work.
