Christmas is here at last! We've had a lovely week, with some drawing, crafts, and the Christmas party (as well as some fractions and poetry, of course!). Photos of the party are included below. It was a brilliant event, with lots of fun and laughter all round. Happy Christmas everyone - enjoy the break. See you next year!
We've had a truly vintage Christmas Crafts Day in Year 6 today, with some beautiful cards, calendars and crafty creations arising from the children's hard work. Everyone has enjoyed the day thoroughly! It's clear from the gallery how much individual thought and care has gone into each project. Happy Christmas, everyone!
We had the privilege of joining in with a live lesson from the amazing astronomers at Kielder Observatory this week! Year 6 had an array of fascinating questions and loved the session. A great afternoon that really tied up our Solar System work from last half-term beautifully!
We've had a terrific morning in Year 6, with Mr Hughes paying a visit to teach us about the potential of the green-screen technology on our school iPads. We've drawn together our computing, art and history knowledge, along with our deep understanding of the 'Beowulf' text, to produce some impressive digital creations. I am sure Grendel would have been terrified into submission!
Year 6's focus on painting techniques in art has produced some remarkable pieces of work, not least their homages to Picasso's 'The Weeping Woman'. Here, the process of pencil drafting, adding watercolours, and adding definition with a drawing pen has turned out beautifully!
The lights were definitely on in Year 6 this week, as the class returned to the science topic of electricity. In no time at all, they were designing and recording series circuits, turning electrical energy into sound, light and movement.
