Hello we are Jessica and Georgia. Our grandparents owned a baby oak tree and kindly voluntered to plant it at our school.
Mr Smith, who helped us plant the tree, decided that it would go at the side of the year 5 and 6 block.
Did you know:
Oak trees take 20 years to grow (I would have left school by then).
They even last 200 years!!!!
The scientific name for an oak tree is Quercus
Oak trees can reach the brilliant size of 70 feet in height and 9 feet in width.
Thank you grandma and grandad, we'll make sure we look after the tree!
This week in 6S we went out in to the secret garden to collected a variety of leaves in science. Next week we're going to make branching diagrams to sort our leaves.
As it's 'Children in Need' we had a fundraising activity during playtime. We got the chance to play 'Guess the name of the bear' and Jess won coco the panda!
On Friday for art we made patterns inspired by Gustav Klimt. Here are some of our favourites:
This week we have been making leaflets,posters and we have created a new SPaG board! For those of you that don't know what SPaG is, it is spelling, punctuation and grammar.
We have also made leaflets (and some of us posters) this week. They are about encouraging mothers to evacuate their children to the countryside in World War 2. Our propaganda leaflets and posters persuade mothers that evacuation is the best solution.
GREAT NEWS! :
Ann Chadewick is coming to our school on Monday morning, as she lives in the neighbourhood. Those of you who don't know who Ann is, I'm sure your child can tell you!
Thank you for reading this blog.

Before half term, we worked very hard to create and organize the displays for our corridors - to make them more colorful and interesting! I think you'll agree they look great! We think our pop art war leaders are lovely paintings.
To continue our world war 2 topic, we have just started reading a book called Friend Or Foe. It is about a boy, who is called David, growing up in WW2 Britain. He gets evacuated from London to Devon and - according to the blurb - soon realises how dangerous the war really is.
We have been sent home with CPG revision maths books today! And have also now joined a maths website called Interactive Resources, which is optional, it is full of fun games!
You can do different amazing math games for you and your younger brothers or sisters.
We have also started a 'pick n mix' topic homework. This is optional again, so we can just choose one of the activities to do, like bake yummy carrot cookies or make a parachute for a paperclip.
Results on are science experiment:
Variable A (fridge): Not too bad! It had a little bit of mould and was a bit stale.
Variable B (radiator): Was wet, mouldy and really disgusting!
Control: The control slice was also very mouldy but not as bad as variable B.
