This term our value is Appreciation
This term, we are focusing on our 12 times tables. We are thoroughly enjoying practising using the songs and our very own dance moves.
Please help us at home by practising everyday.
We have started to explore electricity in science. We were able to create simple circuits using buzzers, motors and bulbs.
Have a look in our science books to see our knowledge of electricity symbols.
Our Unity week has been incredible so far. We have had an incredibly rare and exciting opportunity, where we were able to watch and join in with a performance from Osiligi Tribe of the Massai Warriors.
We have been reading 'Outlaw' by Michael Morpurgo. We have noticed how he tends to use short sentences packed with rich descriptive language.
We were introduced to Marcia Williams' comic version of Robin Hood and we have been making comparisons between writing and illustrative style.
In maths we have been recapping column addition and subtraction. Reece and Cobi has been modelling how to set out our sums.
We have had such an exciting start to the term! On September 11th, 54 year 6 pupils went to Kilvrough Manor in Wales for the whole week. We experienced body boarding in huge waves; caving in a 350 million yeeear old cave;scrambling over some extraordinary cliffs and gaining vital life and social skills by encouraging unity and responsibility.
The children who stayed at school were involved in a superhero project, where they had the freedom to choose, design and develop their own superhero logo.
