Mrs Charlesworth: September 2018
Year 6- it has been a pleasure to have worked with you this week , I am one lucky teacher! It has been lovely to see you all catch up with each other and really embrace Year 6. You have all come back to school with a very mature attitude and have been very engaged in your learning. This week we have been super busy, being very creative! We have been introduced to our new topic and our new school book, Gorilla Dawn, which left us all gripped.
We have been discovering more about Africa, learning about continents and the countries within Africa itself. As well as this we have been learning new art techniques- the maps that you have created are beautiful.
Our big project has been based on the sculptor Dale Chihuly; we have created our own chandelier using recycled plastic which, after a lot of work, looks superb- well done Year 6.
Year 6 have also taken their very first assembly, leading the whole school in the achievements of the week. I think they were a little nervous but it didn't take long for them to settle in to the role. On top of this you have been wonderful buddies to our new starters, helping them to play and settle in to their very first week of school.
Well done year 6, you really have had a super week. Enjoy your weekend, I look forward to seeing you on Monday.

The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
