There's been a lot of illness in year 6 this week. We are so happy to have Keira and Eleanor back - who was ill for 6 days! We hope that those that are still ill are back soon!
We did our first piece of assessed writing this week. We wrote a letter to Alem's mum from the book Refugee Boy. "It was very good!" (Evie), "Some people enjoyed it; others didn't." (Ben).
We went to Egypt! (not..) In maths we measured ancient Egyptian artefacts and also the distances from different towns in Egypt. "We worked really well as a team!" (Jesse), "It was hard but I learned alot." (Emma).
We also did 'tuttuing' in dance this week - I'll try to get photos next week...!
Congratulations to the children who ran the fundraising stall on Friday - we look forward to hearing how much money you raised for EACH.
Welcome back to school! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are refreshed and ready for another hard working term.
Even though we've only been back for 2 days, it's been busy! In art, we started to study Henry Moore – a famous sculptor. Ivan was chosen to wear a stockinette and pose in a position for the class to mould out of clay. It was really fun!
Today Charlie was awarded the resourceful attitude ceritficate and Harriet shared her level 6 gymnastics award (well done Charlie and Harriet!). Today we also found out that our new topic is the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. They used hooks to pull out brains through the nose – it’s gross! We’re really looking forward to Monday because we have an Egyptologist coming in to talk to us.
This is us doing some Egyptian style dancing...
