Walk for Water - Friday 7th July

Making our own model fossils

Half-Term Homework


This half term, your task is to choose ONE African country to make an eye-catching, informative, A3 presentation about. Make it in any style you like, just make sure it looks superb and contains well researched information (i.e. don't just visit one website).

Think about:

- population (languages, ages etc)

- culture (food, traditions)

- geographical points (landscape, landmarks, flag etc)


I can't wait to see what you come up with!


Food Explorers trip to Wagamama!

Arcade Game Mayhem


For our D&T project in our Fairgrounds topic, we were asked to make working models of arcade games, using levers or pulleys. Mayhem ensued, as you can imagine, but look at how brilliant our designs were - and they all work! We had a load of fun using different tools to complete our designs, especially when it was time to decorate.

Fairground-inspired Artworks



In Art, we had a great time creating our own fairground silhouettes. First, we chose a colour scheme for the wash background, then used some delicate brush work to paint fairgrounds rides in the foreground. Don't they look great!?

Making our own fairground rides!


We've been using K'nex to assemble models of different fairground rides. Although the k'nex was a little tricky to use, the hardest thing was probably showing good teamwork! Have a look at the pictures we took of our k'nex-perience (sorry).

Getting arty with Maths


We've been having fun in class learning about spirals - there's a lot more to them than you might think!

To draw Baravelle spirals, we needed to use a whole range of skills: geometry; calculation of fractions; measuring (and calculating decimals).

Who said life after SATs would be easy??

SATs week breakfast club


During SATs week, children in year 6 can come into school for 8:30am (please come to the Hall) for a pre-SATs breakfast, consisting of: juice, banana, waffles and toast. It's a great chance to get geared up for the day and make sure your brain is well fed!


Remember to get good sleep, too!



So far, only 3 children have been on Mathletics during the holidays - get on it!
