Harvest Festival

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The KS2 Harvest festival was fantastic this afternoon. The Year 6 children were great role models during the service and while they were walking to and from the church. It was lovely to see so many children signing and reading poems in front of all the parents.

Thank you to all the parents who came to watch and walk with us to the church.

Prove it!

October 10th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We are really enjoying the ‘Prove it’ style questions in our maths area.

The children in Willow came up with their own questions today.

‘Ben says that 252 divided by 9 is 29. Is he correct? Prove it.’

The Piano

We watched ‘The Piano’ today, a short animation about a man playing the piano. As he plays the song, he is reminded of certain memories such as being a soldier in the war. Do you have a song that reminds you of a happy memory?

These moments are called flashbacks. Year 6 will be writing stories based around the events of the Holocaust that include flashbacks.

Holocaust Centre

October 6th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Year 6 have had a fantastic trip today. We visited the Holocaust Centre and learned about the events that happened before, during and after World War 2 as well as the impact that these events had on the Jewish people living in Germany. We had the amazing opportunity to listen to a survivor and even had the chance to ask him questions. We were then taken on a tour around ‘The Journey’ and saw what life would have been like for a 10 year old boy called Leo.

The children were exceptionally well behaved and I am incredibly proud of all of them. Hopefully, they will remember this trip for a vary long time.

Maths on the MUGA

October 2nd, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We have had lots of fun in maths this morning. Our reasoning questions had been hidden all over the MUGA so we worked in small groups to locate them and then answer each question.

This is one of the questions that we had to answer. Which operation did we use? Can you solve it?
