Buddy Time - We enjoyed spending some time with our buddies and reading to them.

Year 6 have been learning about Classification. Using a tree diagram we classified different sweets.

In DT Year 6 have been learning about the best designs to build the strongest bridges. Using paper and art straws we had a go at building a few of our own and tested them with various weights to see how strong they were.

Neil, from the school's Coding Club, came to spend the afternoon with Year 6. We used a computer coding system to help create a working Lego bridge, base on Tower Bridge. It was great fun and we also learnt a lot more about bridges, as well as about computer coding.

Our topic this term is World War. We have been learning about World War I and II this term. Linking to our topic, we have been reading War Horse, by Michael Morpurgo, in our English lessons. Here are some of our amazing homework projects on the subject.

This term in Music, Year 6 are learning to create melodies with various instruments. They are using Pop Art to help them layer the instruments in the same way that Andy Warhol changes each picture slightly in his artwork.

Our Class Worship was taken by Amelia and Elsie this week. They read the Gospel according to Luke 9:12-17 and then asked questions about the reading. As a class, we then used our thumb prints to create a 'Tree of Togetherness'. Each week different children will be taking our class worship.

As part of our Chinese New Year celebrations, Year 6 have been learning how to write numbers 1-10 in Mandarin and finding out various facts about this special occasion. Some of us also enjoyed a delicious Chinese school lunch: "The chicken chow mien was really good, everyone especially liked the noodles" - Angele. "It was really tasty, I loved the noodles" - Ann-Christa
