TERM 4 ALMA

ALMA  (Article 29)
 

To inspire our spooky story-telling, we are exploring ‘Alma’, a short story of a young girl who ventures into town in the snow. She is drawn to a shop window by a familiar looking doll. From there, the story takes a sinister turn…

WOW!

 

We were tricked! We signed a contract and drew a doll version of us!  Then we watched the clip! Will we now turn into a doll?  Good job Mrs Williams put our mind at rest! 

Sublime Science Workshop (Article 13 - the right to find out things)

Week 3 was 'Science Week' and we were excited to find out that we would be taking part in a workshop where we would learn about science related to the climate. After meeting Mad Mark, he showed us some truly impressive experiments that had us wowed! He was shocked by how much we already knew but we really enjoyed building on that knowledge too with lots of new vocabulary and technical terms. 

World Book Day! (Article 29: The right to an education that helps us use and develop our talents and abilities)

Road Safety

We had a workshop on road safety where we played games to help us stay on the roads.

SAFER INTERNET DAY

 

Article 36: We have the right to stay protected.

We loved exploring # free to be me.  We enjoyed playing ‘ Interland’ Tower of Treasure, making bunting and having lots of ‘internet safe’ discussions. 

Play pod fun!

Playpod creativity! (Article 31 - the right to play)

This week we had lots of creative fun with the items in the Playpod! Firstly, we made sure that we knew the rules when using the junk, such as being sensible while getting the equipment out and putting it away. Once we were sure, we were ready to begin! We had lots of fun burning off our extra energy and making new friends across our year group! 

Rugby with Bristol sport

Tag Rugby Skills! (Article 24 - the right to information to help you stay well)

This week we built on our tag rugby skills. Having already learnt about passing the ball and the need to find adequate space, we started to find out about moving forwards in rugby so that we could get as close to our try line as possible (instead of moving backwards towards the opposition's). It was tricky not to move once we'd been tagged but we soon got the hang of it and lots of tries were scored. Although it was cold outside, we knew it was important to get some exercise so that our bodies stay fit and healthy. 

Becoming a Clan (article 15 - the right to choose our own friends) 
We really enjoyed putting our clans together.  We drew on each other’s strengths to make sure our clam was fearless and as powerful as it could be.  We had fun designing costumes to link us as one.  

WOW day

 

We’ve been transported back over 6000 years to The Stone-age! Feeling lucky to have several layers of clothes and shoes on, we braved the cold to learn how to survive in the forest! We built shelters, made traps and tools and learnt how to start a fire. We can’t wait to now get started on our book and learn about Torak’s  life in the forest! 

Article 27 - the right to a safe place to live  

Term 2

Outdoor PE will be on a Thursday with indoor PE being on a Tuesday in Term 2

How can science help homelessness?

This term, we are very excited to start learning all about the sustainable goals and how we can use them to keep our planet alive for generations to come. This term we will be focusing on the goal 'No poverty'. 6CW will use scientific methods to help the homeless locally. These methods will include; generating electricity for the homeless, designing appropriate material for sleeping bags, creating long lasting food and finding affordable ways to provide clean water. 

 

We will be also using the text 'Garbage King' to link our enquiry to our writing. 

Christmas treat time!

As we have worked so hard this term, our teachers thought we deserved a Christmas party. We enjoyed playing some party games and eating some yummy food. Merry Christmas everyone!

PE

During PE this term,  we have been learning new skills needed to play netball. We enjoyed developing these skills to be confident enough to play a match against each other.

Our class assembly

Here is a small section of the song we performed in our class assembly.

We enjoyed coding our very own Microbits
Christmas jumper day to raise money for those less fortunate than us. 
How do our homeless friends stay hydrated? We tried collecting clean water today but struggled. Back in the classroom, we explored how we could clean it ourselves! We questioned if our water would be safe to drink.  Because none of us risked drinking it, we have now decided to research further to discover how our homeless friends could clean their water sources. 

Exploring fractions

In maths today, we deepened our understanding about fractions by exploring them using water and water bottles. Ask us to explain fractions to you.

Lifeskills

 

What a great school trip.  Today we really did learn life skills.  We were able to dial the emergency services, practise first aid, go shopping, refresh our road safety knowledge, role play what to do in a real fire etc.  Thank you to all the volunteers who made this possible. 

WOW Day

 

To kick start our enquiry we spent the day investigating Ethiopia. We located it on a map, found the mountains, lakes and rivers, researched time zones, currency, flight times, climate, government, schooling etc etc.  With this information some of us produced google slides, PowerPoints, board games, mini books etc to present our findings.  We also enjoyed sampling Ethiopian cuisine.  It was extremely tasty! 

Term 1

Outdoor PE will take place on Monday and indoor PE will be on a Wednesday. 

This term, we are excited to be learning about World War 1. We will be exploring how it all began and who was involved as well as ways that the war affected every day life. We already have so many questions which we can't wait to get answered! Additionally, we are also very much looking forward to planning, preparing and cooking a war time feast made only from rations. 

 

We are also very excited to begin our learning on the Sustainable Development Goals for the world. Our goal for Term 1 is to understand more about the goals and start to plan ways in which we can help make our future brighter.

 

Alongside our enquiry, we will be reading Michael Morpurgo's wartime novel 'Private Peaceful'.

New class library

 

We love our new books - thank you!

Class assembly - developing our oracy

 

Mrs Williams and Mr B were so proud of our performance today.  Thank you to all of our parents and carers who came in.  An important message was delivered with so much passion.

Prove it

We did it! Without any help, we managed to plan, prepare and make pumpkin mash using just our rations allowance! 

Wow what a morning.  We really enjoyed dancing along with Bristol Reggae Orchestra.

Badminton

 

Thanks to Bristol Sport, we are perfecting our serving and forehand.

Enquiry
This afternoon we practised many real life skills to prepare us for our future. We designed recipes using food that we would have had during the war. Some of us picked apples and blackberries form our gardens while others rummaged in our cupboards for food. After putting it all together we realised we could make a vegetable soup followed by stewed apple with blackberries and dark chocolate. We peeled, chopped and boiled our vegetables and fruit with only one cut finger! Some of us enjoyed the tasting part more than others. After evaluating our creations, we now know how we can make our recipes even tastier. Next week we will investigate different herbs, spices and seasonings ready to plan, prepare and cook a feast suitable for soldiers. 
Beam house
WOW

Well- what can we say, Sergeant Evans really showed us the WW1 way.  We have completed drills, dug trenches, made trench cake etc. So much fun yet so informative. 

WOW day 2

 

Another amazing day today because Jim visited us in his war  jeep.  He has fought in more recent wars and was able to share his experiences with us. He has a real passion for WW2 and helped us compare life in WW1 to that in WW2. We loved hearing all of his stories, especially about the parachuting dog and the beer drinking bear!  Thank you Jim! 

Purple Learning

 

We have had a great first day back and have definitely started as we mean to go on. We looked at Growth Mindset today and figured out ways we can overcome a fixed mindset. Mrs Williams gave us a tricky task of copying a section of the front cover  of our class book in just 10 minutes. Up scaling it and making it fit with our groups was a challenge but we overcame problems and kept each other positive.  Instead of saying ‘We can’t’, we said, ‘We are not quite there ........ YET!’ Perseverance, patience and positivity really paid off. 

.....More Purple Learning

 

We made a human knot then used all of our Purple Powers to untie ourselves by not letting go!
