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.
In maths today, we deepened our understanding about fractions by exploring them using water and water bottles. Ask us to explain fractions to you.
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.
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!
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.
We did it! Without any help, we managed to plan, prepare and make pumpkin mash using just our rations allowance!
Thanks to Bristol Sport, we are perfecting our serving and forehand.
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!
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!
