Meditation

Home learning 8th February 2024:

This week we have continued our study of natural disasters, focusing on earthquakes. We have begun to produce our newspaper report on the Aberfan disaster and honed our critical thinking skills in science.  Just because we can, should we be allowed to cloud seed to create the weather? What do you think? We also have taken our first steps to receive an award for being a clever plastic school. This week are mission was a litter pick. However, because we are already amazing we had to ask Mr Vose to hide some litter for us to pick! Have a wonderful weekend I will see you all next week.

What a busy week, starting with our wonderful Christmas Carol concert and ending with our school Christmas fair. Next week we have our Christmas party on Monday and Pantomine on Thursday. Have a lovely weekend and I will see you all next week.

What a wonderful end to our productive week. The children used their Pupil voice to create a day where we celebrate our topic of 'Peace and Conflict'. This week the children created wonderful poems and on Friday we had a day of celebration of learning. The children asked if they could design their own Anderson shelters on minecraft, create their own playscripts, bring in artifacts from homes and share their families stories. After finding that many children had not tried spam I couldn't resist a little tasting session too! I am not sure it was a winner however the apple crumbles we made were. Have a fabulous weekend and we will see you next week for more fun.

This week in Blwyddyn 6 we have been completing lots of different assessments to track our learning. The class completed pupil voice and decided to record their next steps in learning in a grid at the back of their books. Please ask your child what their next steps are. 

We have also used our pupil voice to decide what type of activities they would like to complete during our immersion day next Friday. Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you all next week.

The children this week have been looking at poetry from World War Two. Inspiring them to get ready for next week where they will be challenged to create their own. We also had Airbus deliver their first lesson on aviation engineering which the children thoroughly enjoyed. Have a wonderful weekend!

A big thank you to Mr Vose and Mr Grey who came to talk to the children about the armed forces.
