Class News – 26.05.2023

This week we finished our White Rose Bakery Project – all children have created their own packaging and cake for their business. They have been studying costs, profits, losses, cooking times and packaging dimensions to achieve a successful bake and business outcome. I think you will agree their cakes look rather tasty and their packaging is appealing 🙂 

During our Forest School session on Tuesday, the children were able to forage safe plants and grind them up to make a flavoured juice.  We needed to whittle down some maple branches in order to create a pestle, with which we could mash our plants and liquid together.  We used a very sharp knife, carefully and showed control and skill in handling it. We were also able to use sharp sticks to roast marshmallows over the fire, as well as perfect our den building technique.

PE saw us finish our unit of learning in golf by participating in a matchplay competition across a five hole course on the field.  We used all the skills we had built up over the previous weeks, to try and play a round on the course in as few shots as possible.

In science, we completed our work on electricity by thinking carefully about the reasons our measurements of light readings changed depending on the number of bulbs in the circuit.  We were able to make connections between the amount of resistance in the circuit and the amount of light emitted by a bulb.

We have published a procedural piece of writing related to a Victorian Banquet and the children have discovered some of the strict rules about etiquette. They furthered their knowledge about the British Empire and reflected on the positives and the negatives of this period in history before discovering the crimes and punishments which occurred for adults and children and comparing these to today. We ended the week completing our William Morris inspired wallpaper in art. 

Finally, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the parents and carers that attended the year 6 Open Afternoon, your children really enjoyed showing off their learning journey and we hope you agree they have been working extremely hard in school.

After half term, please could your children return with an image of them starting school or a picture of them younger for a special activity we are completing in year 6. 

We hope you all have a lovely week off relaxing and enjoying time together as it has been a jam-packed half term for all.

Pupil of Week:

Harley – for his enthusiasm and independence in writing this week.

Hunter – wonderful effort in independent writing this week.  Always wanting to check that his work is appropriate for the audience and purpose.
