Year 6 Maths Investigation

We have had great fun completing an investigation in maths today in Year 6. We were given five pieces of a 3D jigsaw puzzle and had to work out what the missing piece could be. There were lots of possibilities and we had to work systematically to find all of the possible answers!

Pizza Express Recognition Trip

Today a group of Year 6 pupils went to Pizza Express. As part of the morning, the children worked alongside one of the chefs to learn how to make pizza  and also developed their understanding of food hygiene. These children were selected to go on the trip as they have gone ‘over and above’ in their learning both at home and at school throughout the Spring Term. Well done and we hope you enjoyed eating the pizzas!

The Arrival

In English today we started our new unit in English studying the book The Arrival. We had to think about who the characters in the image were and write questions that we would ask them. Mrs White and Mrs Andrews then went ‘in to role’ and we had a chance to ask them these questions.

Art in Year 6

Following our trip to the Sainsbury’s Centre, Year 6 have been printing patterns inspired by African art onto paper. We will use this paper to build up an image of African clothing. – Maison

We have been inspired by looking at traditional African clothing and cloths. We have created our own stamps. – Nadia

Book Recommendations from our Year 6 Pupils 

This book is great to read. It is called The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart. I love how there are so many mysteries in the book. The main character, Ruben, can have 15 minutes of invisibility whenever he likes! The book involves some great escapes, traps and dangerous characters. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read so get to our school library to have a look for yourself. It is one of our brand new books!

Norwich Science Festival

Year 6 went on a trip today to the Norwich Science Festival. They attended a session called, ‘Fireworks: real science or just big bangs?’ They learnt all about the job of a pyrotechnic and how science is used to make fireworks. They had a brilliant time and returned to school so excited to continue with their learning in science!
