Remembrance Day 11.11.20
P6M enjoyed analysing the poem entitled In Flanders Fields. We learned a lot about why it was written and what it means. We observed a two minute silence to remember and give thanks.
P6M have been working very hard this week in class. Today we enjoyed our much deserved Golden Time. We hope that we are allowed to have Golden Time outside again soon. Look at the photos to see how much fun we had!
This week some pupils were awarded with their pen licence. Well done on your beautiful handwriting!
We have been reading lots and taking quizzes to try and reach our AR targets for our first quizzing period in P6. Those who achieved their targets were rewarded with a homework pass and a special certificate. Well done!
Guy Fawkes Literacy activities.
This week we enjoyed learning about the story of Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. We used storyboards to sequence and recount this historical story. We then worked in groups to prepare a freeze frame for part of the story. A freeze frame is like pressing the pause button on your remote. Can you guess what is happening (from the story of Guy Fawkes) in each of our freeze frames?
PTA Barn dance.
On our last day at school before half term, the PTA arranged a Barn dance for us. We all had great fun.
Our WAU topic this term is Amazing Africa. We have been enjoying finding out lots of fun facts and information about this wonderful continent.
This week in Literacy we were investigating story openings. We took part in some shared writing, and we composed an opening as a class. After this, we worked with partners to write some imaginative story openings.
This week we have been learning about quadrilaterals and their properties. Today we were learning outside in the sunshine. We were amazed at how many parallel lines and quadrilaterals we found in the environment around us.
This week we have been investigating perimeter. Mrs Saulters challenged our class to find a suitable place for our new marquee. We worked in groups to measure the perimeter of the marquee, and then we marked out suitable places on the playground. We had a great morning measuring and learning outdoors. We have given Mrs Saulters plenty of ideas, and we have been reminded of just how useful Mathematics is in everyday life.
