This week we finally got to perform our show ‘A Night At The Movies’. Because we had missed some rehearsal time due to transition week, we were a little worried about how it would look. However, when we got a real audience for the dress rehearsal on Wednesday afternoon, we ‘pulled it out of the bag’ and ended with our best performance of them all on Thursday night! We hope you all came to see it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Also, this week has been ‘Aspirations Week’. Lots of parents and members of the community have given up their time to come and talk about their jobs and hopefully inspire the our futures.

What another busy week we have had! This week even included some special visitors from Ofsted. We showed them what we could do and how we could behave in school. The teachers are incredibly proud of us. 

English consisted of solving a murder mystery, so that we could fill any of the gaps we may have had within our year 6 writing standards.

In maths, we were completing some work on statistics, which even included using Smarties. Another day, we had to use our knowledge to reason and justify what we thought the following graph was representing and why.

What do you think?

Potions – we got to start our new topic Potions. We watched a clip from Harry Potter and then made a variety of mixtures to find out which materials dissolved and which didn’t. This is all in preparation for an experiment about saturation points.

Finally, to end the week, we even managed to squeeze in a rehearsal for the production. 

Good luck for next week everyone who are on transition visits to your new schools. Remember to keep practising your lines and dances though please.

It’s production time! This year’s production is called A Night At the Movies and it is a little different from the usual ones we do. We have written our own scripts and have even helped to create our dances.

Here’s a sneak preview of us beginning our rehearsals this week. You will have to come and watch on Thursday 12th July if you want to find out which scenes from which movies we are attempting to recreate.

Year 6 have been hard at work thinking about road safety this week. 

We went out into the car park to measure the stopping distances for a car travelling at 30 and 50 mph. Whilst doing this, we realised that at those distances a car was about the same size as our thumbs. So, ‘thumbs up to road safety’, also gave us a guide for whether it is safe to cross the road. 

We also measured and walked the distances that are suggested as drop of points in the ‘Stop and Go’ leaflet. Even walking 200m, only takes approximately 2 minutes (at the most).

The blue and red flashing highlight of the week was all the different emergency service vehicles which visited (and also flew by) on Monday. We enjoyed talking to the police and fire offices about the different things that they do each day.
