Debate

Debate against and for deforestation was very heated this morning. We were split into 2 teams and we argue our views on a subject. Which side would you take?

Athletics

Class 6 is getting ready for our school’s Sports day. This term we will practice athletics. We have learnt how to pass the baton in a relay as well as running techniques.

Do you know how to pass the baton?

Cricket tournament

KS 2 took part in a quick cricket house tournament. Despite the weather, the children displayed great team work and sportsmanship. Well done everyone.

Using coding in maths

This week, class 6 has been learning about shapes. We used Spheros to consolidate our knowledge of shapes properties. The children draw 2D shapes and made codes for the Sphero to drive in a given shape.

Coding

The last day of term was wrapped around coding. We explored Spheros, robots that you can program using codes. Class 6 used their skills to make their Spheros to move in a circle, a square and then decode and make a rectangle. We were excited to see our work in action.

Have you code a robot?

Rhyming Poems

Today in literacy we wrote a rhyming poem about our favourite jungle animals! We made sure to include metaphors, personification and similes in our poems.

What is your favourite jungle animal?

Working like historians.

Class 6 has been learning how to work like a historian. We were archaeologists when digging for artefacts from Vikings past and scientist when we measured our discoveries. Can you work like a historian?

Learning fractions

Today we linked fractions with decimals. We used multi links to help us understand fractions. Can you convert fractions to decimals?

Shropshire salumi

Class 6 had the opportunity to work with Will, local entrepreneur who makes cured meats and created his successful own recipes. Today, he worked with our class designing pork patties. The children chose their own combinations of spices. They weight the ingredients and mixed mince pork with spices. Making patties was a fun activity discovering different textures, taste, smell and learning about job opportunities. We designed our own logo and advertisement for the food we created.

Have you ever experiment with different spices?

PGCE

Class 6 has been planting vegetables in our class gardens. Our peas are growing beautifully and making our soil better for other plants to grow. Today we harvested radishes. We were able pick 22 new radishes and share with the whole school. We handed them over to our chefs so we all can try them in a salad.

What vegetables do you grow?
