In English Year 6 have been looking at a book called the Atlas of Oddities. We have created an atlas of another country that we had visited. Emily has been to Russia so she did it on Russia.Our targets have been to use subordinate and relative clauses, noun phrases, impersonal and formal tone and brackets, commas and dashes for clarification.
We really enjoyed this sequence and presented our final in the GOAL style.
In English, we have been looking at the Atlas of Oddities. It is a fun book with unusual facts about the world. We are writing our own informative texts about London. We have found out some very interesting facts such as the traffic today moves at the same speed as the horse-drawn carriages a century ago. We are all excited to share our invent, that will be about our own topic, with the Year 5's.
Year 6 have been busy working on artwork to show how they think their heaven looks like. We looked at City of Gold which included words from John Plass and CS Lewis. The poems were illustrated with abstract art. From these examples we created our own pieces. These are some particularly nice poems and paintings. They were very motivated and engaged in all of our work.
On the 6th of October, we went up to the field with our rainbow friends and their teddy bears. We ate sandwiches, biscuits and vegetables.Then read some stories, that our rainbow friends enjoyed. We found it very fun.
On the 3rd of October we started to make a scrapbook for an educational game that will be available on the Google Play store for a limited time.We began to take pictures of the educational games from the Google Play store and uploaded them to our presentations, explaining why we liked them.We are making an educational APP for a Year 3 child and are going to add to our scrapbooks over the next few weeks. We will keep you updated with our progress.
Today we converted different measurements and used the equality signs. This is our first blog as digital leaders and we aim to blog every week so please keep checking this page.
Disco ready. Don't we look mighty fine. Apologies to the 4 children who were still getting ready and missed the photo!
Day two on the Year 6 Residential and it's a glorious day...well actually it's raining but that is not stopping us from having lots of fun. Everyone slept well and was up and raring to go for breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, hash browns, toast - deelish! Everyone ate well and we then headed off for archery and aerial adventures. Some of us faced our fears and did the 'Leap of Faith' which was very high up. We also tried the climbing wall and assault course. Archery was very competitive and the team names were very interesting- the children will let you know when they get back! After a yummy lunch of hot dogs or fish fingers and chips plus a pudding we are now undercover building rockets and trying some very tricky science challenges. Have a look at some photos of the day so far and check back later for an update. Stop press- room inspections later!
