Times table of the week: 2s and 5s
This term, Year 6 will be using their skills as historians to find out about how the Vikings made decisions and settled disputes among their communities. We're going to find out who makes rules in the modern day and what our rights mean, focusing on 'change-makers' who have stood up for their rights. Linking this to our school community, we're going to consider the issues that we would like to change and create a campaign to raise awareness of what we feel passionate about. Alongside this, our writing will be based on the book 'Viking Boy' by Tony Bradman which tells the story of a boy who faces injustice and how he seeks revenge. Please check our page for updates on our fantastic learning!
What does it mean to be a Muslim in Britain today?: Article 2: No discrimination
This term, we have been researching about what it means to be a Muslim in Britain today. We have found out about the five pillars of Islam and from this created non-chronolgical reports to showcase our knowledge.
'The Hajj is fascinating! I can't believe how busy it is and how people from all over the world visit it.' Riley.
We have researched the importance of prayer and looked at a range of Mosques to see the fantastic art work inside. We had a go at creating some of our own. Each mossaic has a small flaw within it to demonstrate that nothing is perfect except for Allah.
Farmer's Week: Article 27: The right to nutritious food
In week 6, we took part in Farmer's Week. We started by exploring what was meant by 'Farmer's market' and the term, 'Field to Fork'. We used this to help us order the stages of food production - from cow to yogurt; sow to sausage and bee to honey.
Next, we split into groups. One group was led by our resident gardener - Mr Evans. He taught us about how our food waste at St. Stephen's actually helps us to grow new produce which is then cooked by the school kitchen! In the other session, we were joined by visitors from The Travelling Kitchen who taught us how to make flatbreads, beetroot cakes and a yummy date sauce.
At the end of the day we got to taste the things Year 6 had made and share them with our parents and carers. We've had a great week being farmers and look forward to tasting more of our school-grown produce!
National Poetry Day: Article 31 - Rest, play, culture, arts.
What a fantastic day we have had! It started by a visiting poet coming in and amazing us with his poetry. He taught us about action poetry which was great fun. We spent the day learning a poem off by heart to perform later in the day. We used actions to help us and thought carefully about how to use our oracy skills to help with the performance.
Staying Active. - Article 24: Health, water, food and environment.
We have been really enjoying out outdoor P.E lessons this term and making the most of the September sunshine. We have been building on our teamwork skills whilst playing football. It has made us think about how we communicate to one another in a healthy, supportive way.
Fostering a love of reading! - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts
We have had a lovely afternoon enjoying our school library. It was great to explore such thought-provoking books with our friends.
Playpod Fun! - Article 31: Rest, Play, Culture and Arts
After being locked away for ages, we were finally allowed to play with our wonderful playpod! The PTA had spent ages clearing it out and re-stocking it with new and exciting junk! Playpod helps us to develop our imaginations and release important energy. Have a look at what we've been doing today.
Being a reader
Article 29: The right to an education that explores our creativity.
In order to immerse ourselves in our new book - Viking Boy - we spent a couple of days exploring the first two pages which are all about the mysterious three sisters. We heard our teacher read it again and again as we sketched the ideas in our heads, we practised reading it aloud and we created freeze-frames in small groups. We don't want to give too much away - but have a look at what we've done to see if you can work out what these sisters are like.
