Spring Term Newsletter

How do disasters change our world?
If something is unplanned, can it be managed?
Are science and religion conflicting or complementary?
How does CAD aid the development of a prototype?
Can we apply features of teamwork to orienteering?
What aspirations can you have when performing a routine?
World Book Day
The children thoroughly enjoyed their time in the library choosing a book to read for pleasure. Great discussion was had about their selections whilst enjoying being dressed up for the day!
Wow what a fantastic book this! Chapter one and two read and the class are hooked! We cannot wait to see what Bilbo gets up to and where he ends up.
The children have been building upon previous orienteering learning in Year 4 and have understood how to use maps to locate numbers. These numbers then correspond to a letter. Then in small groups the children worked together to solve the word. It was great to see the core values in action.
Science - Effects of Alcohol and Smoking
After learning about the effects of smoking and drinking alcohol, the children created their own non- chronological report about it. They have discussed the symptoms and effects that humans may end up with. The children were very clear about this.
RE - Digging deeper
Year 6 have been thinking and reflecting extremely hard about the creation story and other explanations and theories. The children have drawn on previous learning and made connections with other religions too.
DT - Trialling pulley systems
As part of DT, the children have used the equipment to create their own systems after researching products that use them.
English - Published Work
Computing - Coding
The children have completed their Computing unit of coding and are now able to ensure the character moves including jumps, changes outfit and varies the speed. The children worked hard to embed their knowledge before ensuring it all worked with their algorithms they created. Great team work shown too. One pupil completed extra work at home and became a lead learner after his character performed many other tricks.
