In English we wrote a dialogue between two characters and made sure our speech punctuation was accurate and that we interwove narrative to make it more interesting. We were really impressed with Izzy’s writing.
In English we were using pathetic fallacy to build tension and create mood in our writing. We watched a film clip called ‘Wing’ and then wrote an opening to the story. Joseph and Elle were ‘super-proud’ of their opening.
Our first Empiribox science lesson of the year went with a bang and some impressive green fire! We were great at remembering how to spot a chemical reaction and there were lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aaahs’ when the reaction happened. We made an amazing discovery about hair gel too.
Elder class had a visit from Mr Walker and Mr Gower from King Edward VI Upper School to talk about transition. They listened really carefully to the information given and asked some really interesting questions. All of the pupils were invited to attend the open evening at King Edwards on 12th October from 6pm to 8pm and the ‘super science Saturday’ on 23rd September between 10am and 2pm.
In PE we are practising our rugby skills with Tom this half term.
In science we learnt about how light helps us to see objects. We used cooperation to plan and make a short educational film to explain the process.
Elder class had their first session as Circle Time Leaders on Friday afternoon. It was fantastic to see the year 6s taking on new responsibilities and interacting so positively with the younger pupils.
