Week Commencing 14th December 2020

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

6SW have been working so hard this week, not just in school but at home, getting to grips with online learning. The school have invested in new learning platforms so that if another full lockdown occured, the children will be prepared to continue their learning at home. The children were doing extra tasks throughout their evenings to check their log in details worked and to familiarise themselves with the new websites. I was very proud of them all for putting in the extra effort. Another well done for all the children who took an active part in the recent TTR battle! We're in the lead at the moment so fingers crossed we stay the highest class in the school!
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

This week, we have been writing the biography of Anne Frank in literacy and in science, we have been explaining how the heart works, naming each part and how it functions. We've been getting competitive on Spelling Shed and Scholastic Reading Pro as well as fitting in time to improve our times tables on TimesTable Rockstars.
6SW finished off another fantastic week by representing Hello Yellow, supporting YoungMinds.

Week Commencing 28th September 2020

6SW have been busy this week. We’ve learnt about the six wives of Henry viii and how his many marriages impacted on his reign. We also had a go at making our own blood - using sweet related alternatives of course! Can you guess which part of the blood is represented by which?

Week commencing 14th September 2020

6SW have come back to school with an inspirational attitude and instantly got back to working hard and showing what fantastic things they can achieve. We've created our class rules collaboratively; started our history work on the Tudors and have been learning all about the circulatory system.
