The children in year 6 have worked so hard all week on completing their SATS assessments. It has been a long journey, but they have all shown determination and resilience to get to this point. Well done!

For our topic on Akhirah in RE, we analysed the importance of selflessness by identifying kind actions within stories. We reflected on how Muslims can affect others positively by performing selfless acts.

Flag of Spain

For Spanish this week, we created noun phrases to describe local landmarks. We used Spanish dictionaries to translate our own adjectives before putting them together into a phrase. There were lots of amazing descriptions of our very own primary school, One-stop shopping centre and even a local supermarket!

In Art this week, we were inspired by L.S. Lowry's use of perspective to make objects appear closer and further through use of line and proportion. Year 6 sketched their own industrial cityscapes based on his work.

For World Book Day 2024, Year 6 created their own food-themed stories! 6D's 'Fruit Salad' posed a question: which is the best fruit? 6Q's 'A Mash Made in Heaven: a Fish and Chip Story' confirms that fish and chips really do go superbly well together.

During SMSC, we discussed how change is a part of life and the many ways in which we can cope with changes in our lives by categorising things we can and can't control. We also highlighted how a growth mindset can allow us to bounce back from difficulties and become more resilient in and out of school.

For British Science Week, we really honed in on how data can be presented in science to in many different ways. We discussed the use of each type of table and graph and how they can each tell a story of how something may change over time. Our investigation was really simple: how does shoe size change over time? This allowed the children to focus on presenting their data on large posters using a variety of tables and charts! 

Rosary Beads in Prayer

26/02/24

This week we deeply explored Jesus Christ's journey to the cross during the Holy Week, remembered by Christians during Easter festivities. We interpreted, discussed and plotted the fourteen stations of Jesus' journey to the cross on Good Friday.

Refraction occurs when light travels from one medium to another. For example, from air to water. This week in year 6, we investigated the effects of refraction by exploring how light travels through different media. Some really fun observations were made!
