A Wonderful Week!

You only need to read the newsletter yesterday to see why I entitled the Class 6 blog 'a wonderful week'. Mind you I could have selected so many alliterative titles, for so many things. I think it was because Class 6 have been working on creating descriptive writing and alliteration being a feature we could use.

Being in Class 6 has been great this week, (as it always is). I have seen quite a few, more than a few actually, really trying very hard.Great listening, is key to moving your learning on.

We are up to Chapter 12 with our book ' Skellig'. I've got to say we are getting the hang of creating writing with tension and suspense.I think Class 6 would have to agree with Michael Murpurgo now with his quote, that David Almond is 'a very special writer'. We have over the course of this week been working on ;writing a diary entry describing it from Michael's point of view;PEE answering of comprehension questions and embedding quotes as evidence and finally being set the challenge of writing a piece of descriptive writing, exploring Michael's dream in Chapter 10. Here is just one example of many, that the children created:

                          "I woke up with the thought of nightmares dancing in my head. Then my own thoughts flooded back into my head.I selected the one about my mission and sat up. Peeling the duvet off myself like a banana skin, I leapt out of bed stealthily. Unaware of what dangerous obstacles may lie ahead. I left my room."

I can't wait to read more of them over the weekend.

In Maths we were looking at something where a few of us still felt a little nervous...you have guessed it, LONG DIVISION. I am pleased to say though...we have cracked it! Where we are even dividng decimals too. We shall be moving onto volume, alongside area and perimeter recapping next week.

At the beginning of the week, we looked at computing and how to read and create our name using coding. This was followed up by a lesson in RE, where we were looking at extending our knowledge of the 'BIG FRIEZE'. The 'Big Frieze' is made up of 8 segments which show the journey through the Bible;from the Old Testament through to the New Testament. As an artist created these segments it is always interesting how we can interpret so many different things, if we look close enough. We had a really good collaborative lesson sharing and writing our views and oipnions.

In Geography Mrs Archer started to 'Investigate Coasts'. First the children had time to find out what coasts are and look at how they are formed. They went on to explain how the different coastal areas were formed. In Science we continued to look at the Circulatory System and in particular the heart, lungs, veins and arteries. The amount of scientific vocabulary that we discussed was huge. Let's hope a few science questions appear in next week's quiz night!

Our first Sam Learning club went well. Everyone turned up or should I say stayed for an extra hour but I made sure I had the fruit and biscuit at the ready.  

Finally, it had to be a massive well done! Everyone in school is still talking about our wonderful new award and trophies that have recently turned up. I would also like to wish those children in Class 6 and in other classes, good luck for the tournament this weekend. I'm sure they will have something to share on Monday.

Hope you all have a great weekend, whatever you have planned.

See you Monday!

Mrs Stewart
