Things to Remember:
Thank you! :-)
This week (WB 22nd May) is International Week. We spent Monday and Tuesday morning with our family groups learning about India and Italy. We completed lots of arty activities, tasted some traditional foods and even had a go at learning some languages. We enjoyed a visit from a Bangla dancer on Tuesday and on Wednesday had the chance to play some African drums during an afternoon workshop. We have also been practising hard for our Brazilian dance which we will be performing, wearing colourful costumes and carnival masks, during the International Dance Festival on Friday.
The beginning of summer term was very busy for us in year 6, we worked incredibly hard in the few weeks before SATs. Mrs Koller was very impressed with our attitude and hard work during SATs week and we were rewarded with a pyjama party afternoon on Friday 12th May where we enjoyed snacks and drinks whilst watching Flushed Away.
We are learning all about Extreme Earth. We have been finding out about some of the most extreme places to live on our planet. We have learnt about tsunamis, volcanoes and earthquakes. In the next few weeks, we will be making our own errupting volcanoes - keep an eye on our class page to see what we create!
During healthy eating week, we started each morning with a 5 minute workout video in our classrooms to wake us up - we discussed how important it is to complete at least an hour of physical activity a day and this was a great way to start our mornings.
In literacy we wrote about having a balanced diet by eaching from the 5 food groups and debated the importance of being allowed free time outside during a school day.
In maths we used ratio and proportion to create recipes for healthy fruit smoothies, we then had the chance to prepare these and try them. Some of them were very tasty!!
We are learning all about World War 2. We started off our topic this week by thinking about how children who were evacuated during the war might have felt, we found out what caused World War 2 to begin and celebrated Remembrance Day on Friday by producing some incredible artwork!
Here is the link for this half term's home learning project based on our topic World War 2.
There are lots of exciting activities to complete and it is due in on Friday 16th December.
