Eerie Events in Year 6…

Even though it’s only been a 4 day week for the children, it has been an action-packed few days.  Read on to find out more about the happenings of the week.

Events in our English lessons have taken a supernatural turn.  Following an ‘incident’ which took place over the weekend on school grounds, the children have been investigating the scene, filling out a police report and interviewing a witness.  On Friday, we had a visit from two extra-terrestrial specialists, Detective Inspector A.Leon and Spanish Specialist Inspectora Una Planeta.  They carried out an autopsy of an alien life form whilst children took notes.  Next week, we will be writing newspaper articles, reporting on these eerie occurences.

In maths, we have been revising multiplication and will continue to focus all the skills required to complete arithmetic calculations.  Each week we will try and beat the previous week’s scores in an end of week test.

We have really enjoyed starting our new geography based topic about Extreme Earth this week, which has left us marvelling at the awesomeness of nature.  This linked really well to our RE discussions in which we talked about where our world views come from.

Our new computing topic for this term is all about photo editing and what makes a good photo.

In art, Banksy will be our inspiration for this term as we delve into the increasingly popular world of Street Art.
