Home spelling task

We have been speaking about how important it is to practise our spellings in different ways. 5 stars in a jar AND 5 merits to whoever can do some extra spelling practise at home (for 5 consecutive days) using these fun techniques.

Can you floss like a boss? Year 6 can! Read on to find out about our Advent charity challenge

In preparation for our charity ‘floss off’, for Cafod’s world gift aid, we have been writing instructions that will turn your floss from flat to fierce in no time! 

Our floss charity challenge will take place on the 10th December 2018 - please sponsor us! We hope to raise enough money to buy 3 birth certificates for children in deprived countries. 



It’s outdoor maths week!

During outdoor maths week, year 6 created co-ordinate grids and plotted themselves as points to create shapes. We will be learning about how to translate shapes across a four quadrant grid next week so this refresher activity made for a fun introduction to this topic.

A real WWII artefact! Thanks E.B for bringing it in for us to investigate

We love starting off a maths lesson with a super movers activity! This is something you could all give a go at at home too to secure your knowledge of multiples.

Terracotta Warriors - CHINA DAY

During our most recent China day, as a class, we made a traditional Terracotta Warrior out of clay. We learnt how to ‘score’ and ‘crosshatch’ to secure our pieces of clay together using ‘slip’.
