Y6 Star of the week 21-1-22

Congratulations to our Y6 Stars this week.

Cameron really impressed me in his extra maths booster lesson after school this week. He confidently worked on dividing numbers representing his answers as a decimal- this is not easy but you made it look like it was!

Annabelle is a delightful young lady who contributes to all lessons with confidence and enthusiasm.

Our Good to be Green winners are Matilda and Laura. Well done for following our school values this week. 

Philosophy For Children in Y6

Year 6 have really impressed us this term in our Philosophy For Children (P4C) lessons. We have started the sessions looking at identity and what it means to be human. Over the next few weeks we will move on to look at extremism and terrorism. The children have been mature, respectful and sensitive in discussing such important topics. During the sessions, the children have had  the opportunity to choose their own lines of enquiry to discuss and debate.

Y6 Star of the week 14-1-22

Congratulations to our superstars Roban and Hannah who were awarded with a headteacher's certificate this week.

Roban is enjoying learning about the Vikings in history and produced some good research about Viking life.

Hannah has persevered with difficult work on fractions in maths- keep this up.

Our Good to be Green awards go to Darcy and Oliver- well done for staying on green all week!!

Freeze Frame

We played a game called Freeze Frame in English this week. The children had to re-create a frozen image depicting the Viking attack on the monastries at Lindisfarne. They had to then come alive and make inferences about what each character would say. We had some great actors during this who were very entertaining. Hopefully this will help us to get into character when writing quotes in our newspaper reports. 

Fractions in Y6

We have used online manipulatives this week to help us explore fractions. We used the fraction wall on to find equivalent fractions.
