Spotty, Dotty and Watching Stars.

What a busy week and I'm sure you will be at home getting ready to see all the amazing things that people do to support Children in Need. As you can see from the photo gallery we had such fun in school today and great excitment of having the Rickshaw Challenge pass through St Ippolyts. Luckily, the weather was kind and keystage 2 went to show their support by cheering Matt Baker and his crew on. In class we thought it would be a great opportunity to become journalists for the day and set about gathering info, comments and writing reports about Children in Need.

We quickly re-wrote lyrics to 'I'm still standing' to 'You're still cycling' and no doubt your child may will sing it to you. We also took part in the Joe Wicks Big Move which was great fun.

Whilst some of the children were here in school the rest of the class were taking part in a Herts Small School football tournament in Watford. They arrived back just before the end of the day, with the A team celebrating with medals,coming 2nd overall. The B team also played exceptionally well and did an amazing job, being true sports ambassadors.

This was all of course at the end of the week and after a full week of assessments as well. I am very proud of year 6 who all participated and tried their hardest during this week. Everyone seemed calm and took it all in their stride, which is super.

On Monday, Young Worship led a beautiful service to the whole school for rememberance. The reflections and prayers that were read were so thoughtful. I was extremely proud of them. As a class we took time to write our own thoughts and looked at how it is important to not forget the past and have displayed our feelings in our reflection area in class.

In RE this week we started to explore our ideas of whether it is best to express religion in art and architecture or charity and generosity. With so much charity work taking place and our half terms value- generosity, you would think this is fairly easy but a lot of children have various views on this which lead to great discussions. This week we looked at some art, thought about why places are known as sacred, what does it mean - a sacred place. This is giving us the chance to prepare our learning for when we visit St Albans Cathedral on Friday 29th Novemeber 2019.

We also managed to squeeze in some science, mainly the write up of our skittle experiment from Friday last week. We have also planned a further investigation which we will have to put into next week as we couldn't fit it in.

Next week we shall be having normal homework and spellings but in the meantime make sure you are keeping up with things such as reading , Rockstars, Sam Learning and getting started on some of your grid learning pieces.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and keep an eye out to see if we were spotted during the Rickshaw.

Well done year 6 for another super week.
