This week in Year 6 we are studying area and perimeter in maths. We have been working hard to prove our answers and explain our mathematical understanding using specific vocabulary.
Today in Year 6 we have been creating our own Christmas cards in our French lesson using watercolour paints. We experimented with colour and line.
In Year 6 today we have been learning about the 2019 General Election. We spent some time looking at the manifestos of different parties and then have applied our measuring skills to build our own rosettes to wear when we visit our own polling station here at school on Thursday. We had to measure out the size of the ribbons for our rosettes and also used a compass to accurately draw a circle to match a given criteria (a certain diameter).
Thank you so much to our Y6 pupils and their families for attending our Advent Pyjama Party Cafe! We read a Christmas story wore our pyjamas, had hot chocolate and made our own Christmas decorations from recycled paper.
Year 6 had an absolutely fantastic trip to Norwich International Aviation Centre to take part in an activity on Tuesday 19th November. We took part in a number of STEM sessions including: paper plane design, robot coding, team building and designing an ejector seat for an egg! It was fabulous to see so many children shine with their creativity and enthusiasm for science and engineering tasks. Thank you so much to all of the RAF volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to make the day happen for us.
Today we marked remembrance day with a whole school service led by our year 6 pupils. We were joined by members of the community, ex-servicemen who work in our school and our school governing body.
Friday 1st November Year 5 and 6 attended our school careers fair. This invent was well attended by local business and some parents in the profession of engineering, photography and hairdressing also supported the event. We had John Innes – science, Intel – computing, Norse – catering, Kerrison Toys – retail, Aviation Academy and Rotary Club members talking about management positions.
Photos from the event are on display in Aspiration Ally and the children wrote on leaves their future career aspirations which are on display on the Aspiration Tree outside at the visitors entrance.
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!
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.
