Happy Easter!

It has been such a wonderful term, full of new learning, fundraising, and many new experiences.

In History, we asked the question, ‘Who was to blame for the sinking of the Titanic?’  It was a great opportunity for us to use our awesome oracy skills and to interrogate pieces of evidence. After playing a game of ‘Diamond 9’ to help us organise our arguments, we presented our thoughts to the class.

In Maths, we learnt about circles. We learnt how to use the diameter and radius to solve problems about circles. We then had great fun using a compass to draw our own circles with different diameters to make beautiful patterns.

In our French lesson, we learnt about Easter traditions in France and used some of our existing French vocabulary to write French Easter poems. We then made beautiful French Easter cards Joyeuses Pâques!

This week’s highlights must include taking part in our whole school ‘Poetry by Heart’ celebration. We have really enjoyed learning T.S. Eliot’s ‘Macavity, The Mystery Cat’ and committing it to memory. A recording of our performance is available for you to enjoy on Seesaw. It was such fun to perform and we loved hearing the other classes share their love of poetry too.

Eyes down, starter for ten…Oh, we do love a quiz in Year 6! Our knowledge of this term’s learning was put to the test in the Key Stage 2 Humanities Quiz. Questions ranged from the water cycle to deserts in Antarctica! Thank you to Mrs Coutman-Stock for organising and being our quiz master. We had a great time!

Our Golden Morning on Thursday gave us the opportunity to experience new skills and activities including examining owl pellets, Computer Science and cooking (not forgetting a few fluffy chicks as well!). Thursday afternoon saw us competing in this term’s Key Stage 2 Humanities Quiz. This was a great way to check how ‘sticky’ our learning has been this term whilst working in mixed age teams. What a great way to bring the spring term to a close!

Have a wonderful Easter break! See you back in school on Monday 17th April.
