Wake up to Shakespeare for year six!
Year six had the chance to extend their literacy and drama skills when Frances Horridge from the ‘Wake up to Drama’ academy came to work on Macbeth with them. Sessions included ‘How to die in an Elizabethan way’; ‘Sword Play’ in Shakespeare’s theatre; ‘The Three witches’ scene; ‘Banquo’s ghost’; ‘Freeze frames’ of Macbeth scenes. Frances is brilliant with the children and they have really enhanced their understanding of The Scottish Play!
First TOPIC assembly of the Spring term 2018!
Class 6H started this term’s round of class assemblies with an excerpt from their HEALTH topic- all about Microbes. They told everyone what microbes were, all about diseases and how your immune system can fight them. They also discussed useful microbes and how to keep yourself disease free. In class, they have also researched Edward Jenner and Louis Pasteur. We look forward to class 5G’s assembly next week, also on the theme of HEALTH, all about the sugar levels in different foods.
Spring 2018: during the first part of this term our school moves from designated National Curriculum planning to a more ‘child-centered’ model of planning, with topics chosen by each class. This term we have some exciting topics-Health and Fitness/ Planet Earth/ Rain Forests/ Food/ Chocolate/ Chocolate and sweets/ Blue Planet/Sport/ In the News/ Imaginary Worlds. Have a look at our sample planners below…..
Year six and VARJAK PAW…AUTUMN 2017!
As always, Power of Reading is providing a real buzz in all year groups. Year six are currently getting into characterisation and authors use of words through an all time favourite of ours…Varjak Paw by SF Said. This deep thinking and lengthy discussion is leading to some fabulous writing and display work in year six!
