Bikeability - This week, the Year 6s have gained their levels 1 and 2 in cycling proficiency. The children learnt about how to stay safe on the roads and practised the safe and effective way of turning into and from major and minor roads. Well done children!
Future Cardiologists - The children have been planning for their explanation text on the heart and creating their own success criteria for the piece of writing. The future of our medical sector is in safe hands with our Year 5 and 6s. We have also been sketching pictures from various scenes in 'The Highwayman' using different types/shades of pencils.
As part of our work on the heart, we went into the hall this morning and carried out a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) session. We also watched a video from the 'Body Coach' - Joe Wicks - and discussed how this new craze is proving to be a popular form of exercise across the world and how it has Scientific research to suggest that it can support a healthy heart. Take a look at some of our pictures.
Our new topic has well and truly begun. The children have been reading the fantastic narrative poem 'The Highwayman'. They have responded creatively with story maps, summarising the story in 100 words and creating/performing some drama for the scene in which Bess was tied up (thinking from the perspectives of different characters). We have also started to look at the internal structure and the functions of the heart as part of our Science and topic work.
World Book Day - 6E were challenged to talk about their favourite book and give justifications for their choices. They could read or recite a significant part of their book, perform a piece of drama work based on it or try to persuade their friends to read their book. We shared our books with the people on our tables before presenting to the rest of the class. We had a range of responses which was so lovely to see: this was definitely one of my favourite days (so far) this year, as the children were all so enthusiastic and presented excellently. I think there could be a waiting list for some books in our class library very soon, as some of our children are very persuasive indeed!
