I gave you the challenge and boy did you guys rise to it!
Very well done!
You created a lovely atmosphere in the Elder Tree Classroom this evening and at the same time raised a fantastic amount for charity.
Your efforts were appreciated by so many people...and I received so many positive comments about your attitudes and friendliness. Everything that was on offer was superb: from interactive games to art work to photographs to nail painting to sweet stalls to book sales and more... it all raised just over £345 for the RNLI!!! This is an amazing achievement, Year 6!
Have a great weekend; a well deserved rest is certainly in order!
See you on Monday!
Today we used equipment and pictures to show understanding of what needs to happen when we add fractions together. We talked about finding equivalence; once the denominators are the same, the process is quite straight forward...
Try having a practise of this skill at home if you have the time; can you add fractions greater than a whole?
During our science lesson we created a simple circuit to light a light bulb.
We then thought about how the brightness of the light might change if the amount of wires we used increased.
We ended up using 30 wires in one giant circuit to see the result!
Were you surprised by what happened?
We have a bit of an odd situation for the prompt this week. I’m sure it will get your writers really delving into their imaginations! It is:
… we seemed to be on the television…
This morning we attended the final day of the 3-week-long ‘Into Film Festival’, which is a nationwide event for showcasing the best of film and cinema to children. The film had many different themes running through it but it was all based around life on the International Space Station. Prior to the film starting there was a Question and Answer session from a lady who worked in telecommunications for the British Space Agency; the pupils from our class asked some great questions! There were so many positive learning points that the children talked about afterwards too, which included: the amazing amount of light pollution between capital cities and international borders such as North and South Korea; the visible effects of deforestation; the case for once Mars being a place where life could have existed; the challenges of completing a spacewalk; seeing different weather patterns from space; a huge amount of environmental issues and we even learnt about washing your hair in space!
It was a fantastic morning that hopefully inspired lots of our children in many different ways from film making to considering a career in the space industry.
What did you find most fascinating about the whole film experience?
There has been some wonderful tessellation work going on with Ms. Voller over the past few weeks - you are creating some great pieces!
Some children (particularly in Y6) are arriving at school before the gate opens at 08:40, unsupervised on the school premises.
Although a few minutes before 8:40 is acceptable, there are some children who are waiting in the staff car park from not long after 08:00 and are then occupying themselves by playing games in the staff car park.
Please can we ensure that any children arriving on the premises before 08:40 are going to breakfast club and are not unsupervised in the staff car park.
Thanks for your support,
There was some wonderful learning on display this afternoon in Elder Class as we applied our knowledge of ROYGBIV (the colour spectrum) into a colour wheel.
When the colours are 'spun' together, we see white.
To lead on to some writing work about setting and character, we looked at things we really disliked... some of the writing contained some really good skills including personification, alliteration and metaphors.
You could try writing about something you really dislike on here too... remember to pick your words carefully to create the biggest impact on the reader.
