Mrs McGhie: July 2016
Another busy week in Year 6! Not long left now for our year 6's but still lots going on!
In literacy we have been reading lots of our class novel 'The Weirdstone of Brisingamen' and have been writing newspaper reports about the Legend of Alderley. We used the description of the svarts to do some art work — we had some very gruesome looking creatures!
We have been busy practising our song for our Leaver's assembly. The children are sounding really good now. Homework this weekend is to make sure that we know all the words so that we can sing it without looking at the lyrics! Next week we are going to be putting some moves to it!
In music we have been learning about the pentatonic scale and the children made their own compositions using this scale, ending in a performance to the rest of the class. All children had the confidence to perform, which was fantastic!
In science we have been learning the proper names for the bones in the body. We looked at some x-rays and tried to guess which bones they were. I wonder how many bones you can remember year 6! I will be testing you on Monday!
In maths we have been completing puzzles and playing maths games which required us to use logic and think one (or two) steps ahead of our opponent. It was great to see some children taking the games home to play.
In French we have been practising for our French performance at Brine Leas School. Some great singing and dancing happening!
In History we have been learning about the Norman and Plantagenet Kings and putting them on a time line. The children were shocked to learn how horrible they were to one another! We will continue to work our way through history until we get to our current Queen, Elizabeth II.
A big thank you to Mrs Goodwin for organising our leaver's hoodies. We love them!
We have lots to look forward to next week including: sports day on Tuesday afternoon (make sure you all have black shorts and a red t-shirt), Olympic lunch on Wednesday, and our French performance at Brine Leas on Friday.
See you all on Monday!

What a lovely last week of term we have had- so much learning in only 3 days! We started our week with our science experiment- the children carried out the experiments that they had planned last week. They sieved, filtered and evaporated in the hope that they could retrieve a solid from mixtures and solutions. The children were really buzzing about what they were finding. The experiment gave...
