Maths: In maths this week we’ve been designing a theme park, it was AWESOME!!  We could only spend up to £500,000! 

English: All the year 6 teachers were debating who should be who in our leavers performance Glint of Gold. 
We also started a slow write task based on the clip of a man finding a ‘remote’ that had hieroglyphics on it and when he clicked any of them something would happen to the pyramid. The task Miss Footitt set was to write a recount from the camel’s view and also challenged us to use inverted commas. 

Transition: We’ve done a couple of transition lessons with Mr Bell and we talked about what will happen at the Elizabethan academy and how everything works.  

Topic: In topic we’ve done some research on Egypt and we looked at different places and how many people visit Egypt; also which events happen each month. We were lucky enough to even have a visit from Mrs Litchfield.

ICT: In ICT we have been writing on KidBlog about our time at Carr Hill and about what our ambitions are.

In maths we have worked out questions about past elections. It was a good choice as the election was currently taking place. Some of the questions were harder than others but we all did quite well. We also took a small skills test in which we labelled red, yellow or green depending on how many we got right.

In English we have completed a spelling test that included 101 words. We found it difficult but we got some good scores.

In topic we have started to watch a film: The prince of Egypt. Our topic usually is based on a book but this time it is based on the film. We also made some comic strips about Ancient Egyptian gods.

Ancient Egypt Day 
On Tuesday we were having an ancient day and were learning about Egypt. We smelled spices and tried to identify  them. We took part in a drama which we had to dress up as a Ancient Egyptian. It was a  burial of a prince. We pretended to mummify a skeleton that once was actually alive. 

Rounders Tournament
On Thursday 8th June some of us went to a rounders tournament with some of the other year sixes and some year fours. We did quite well because we won all of our games except the play offs. This left us in second place over all but we only lost by 1 point!

In English we completed a murder mystery where we had to use our English skills to find out the murder, place and weapon.

In maths we have been creating a lunar mall on the moon. We have a budget of £5,000 and had to figure out how much money we had to spend and whether we made a profit. Most designs looked amazing.

There was a lot of crazy varieties of hair!

In maths this week we designed a lunar shopping centre - which means we made the first shopping centre on the moon. We had  £5,000 to spend and no more.

Fire service
This week firefighters from Retford fire station came in to teach us about fire safety. They showed us all around their fire engine, everything inside and also let us sit in it!

This week in topic we learnt some more about Egyptians and we also did some paintings, about what we would want in our tomb if we were an Egyptian.

Walk to school week!
The total amount of times our class walked to school was 70.

Handshakes: our amount this week was zero, but hopefully next week we will do better.
Attendance: this week was a whopping 99.6%
