Here are some of the spooky stories we have been writing. Enjoy!
This year, we shared a book called 'Tidy', written by Emily Gravett. It follows the story of Pete the Badger who tidys his forest to the point of no return. It highlighted the issue of responsible waste disposal, and wider issues relating to the environment. We enjoyed a range of activities that included re-writing the text, and trying to predict what the story was about. We discussed climate change and how we can have a positive impact on our own local area, making pledges to form a whole school display. A number of different pieces of art were also created to celebrate the day. Take a look at some of our work below...
Last week, 6E had lots of discussions about anti-bullying week. The theme, this year, was to focus on making small changes that can have a big impact around school. All the children made a pledge at the start of the week, and then asked themselves on Friday if they had achieved this. We also wrote some anti-bullying poetry to inspire others to make a change. Some of the best examples are below.
This year for Black History, year 6 focused on Political Figures: Martin Luther King and Barack Obama. 6E researched these influential people and created their own portraits. Additionally, in celebration of black history all of year 6 have been dancing with Miss Ringwood to African music - we even had a little dance off to end the week! Here is 6E dancing to 'Shosholoza'
Here are next weeks spellings! Testing an adult is a great way to remember!
Today, in year 6 we have been learning about beliefs, faiths and non faiths.
We learnt three new words: theist, agnostic and atheist.
We are carrying out research and need your help. Can you answer these three questions for us so we can gain a greater understanding of the wider community's views?
1. What do you think when you think of the word God?
2. When would you (if ever) turn to God?
3. What does God mean to you?
