We've completed the first term.
A huge well done to all of 6SW who have worked their hardest and got straight back in the swing of it immediately when they returned in September.
This week has been super Christmassy - we've completed crafts, worn Christmas jumpers, had Christmas dinner, Been to a Christmas disco and even starred in and watched a whole collection of Christmas performances. We are certainly ready for a rest!
Merry Christmas to everyone, we look forward to being back in January for a fun Spring Term!
Week Commencing 7th December 2020
Piῆatas are coming along well this week, they've all taken shape and we are adding the frills and decorations for the finishing touches!
6SW have had such good fun planning, writing, preparing and performing their Christmas video for you all. We hope you all enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you!
Week Commencing 30th November 2020
We got festive in science this week and looked at how the bulbs were lit in a set of fairy lights. We considered what happened when one bulb broke and how the circuit could continue by comparing series and parallel circuits. Everyone displayed some fantastic investigational skills!
This week, we’ve also created our festive hoop for the hall - 12 drummers drumming!
Week Commencing 23rd November 2020
As part of our geography unit, we have been learning about Mexico. We have a good understanding of where it lies in the world and how its location compares with the UK so now we are identifying what the climate is like in both countries. Using data on temperature and rainfall, we have plotted line and bar graphs to display our findings.
Week Commencing 16th November 2020
After spending some time learning about piñatas, the time has come for us to plan creating our own. In class this week, we looked at existing piñatas then we dismantled them to see how they are made. From here we wrote instructions for how to create our own.
Thanks for everyone who has sent in cardboard – we definitely made use of it! Can’t wait to show everyone the finished pieces!
Week Commencing 9th November 2020
Thanks also to all the parents for taking time out of their evening to speak to me, it was lovely chatting about the children and well done to everyone who managed to access Teams for a video call!
Week Commencing 2nd November 2020
6SW had a well deserved half term rest but now they’re back and ready for action!
We’ve started our new geography topic, studying Mexico and we’ve been investigating piñatas in DT.
Our science topic for this half term is electricity so we started off by constructing simple circuits then made sure that our scientific diagrams used the symbols correctly.
Week Commencing 12th October 2020
It was assessments this week, all of the children tried incredibly hard and gave their best. There were lots of moments of pride as well as resilience and perseverance from those who want to do even better next time.
Out on the playground, the amount of equipment we can use has been reduced due to the virus so we have been finding other ways to stay active by trying out different activities and adapting some of these into new games. We’ve used a stopwatch and have taken out paper and clipboards to record our scores and then try to beat them!
Week Commencing 5th October 2020
6SW finished off another fantastic week by representing Hello Yellow, supporting YoungMinds.
