Carnival Dance Workshop
6H have had a very busy and successful few weeks! We have thoroughly enjoyed finding out all about the principles of a healthy diet as well as investigating where our food is sourced from – near and far! The children also learned about seasonality and enjoyed creating a menu using only seasonal fruits and vegetables found in the UK. Following on from this, we have had great fun investigating and analysing a range of smoothie products, including having the opportunity to taste test a range of delicious mass produced smoothie products. Then, the children designed their own nutritional smoothie, creating a name, brand and design for the packaging and targeting their chosen consumer. Future candidates for ‘The Young Apprentice’ for sure! Alan Sugar would be very impressed.
In maths, the children have enjoyed learning about drawing angles and finding missing angles as well as constructing 2D shapes. They have also been finding the perimeter, area and volume of shapes. They have used this knowledge to carry out a range of challenges and extensions and their resilience has been impressive!
The children have finished their second whole class reader, Street Child, and were able to make many interesting links with their History topic on the Victorians. They are now fully engrossed in our next class reader ‘Holes’ and are all enjoying the daily opportunity to read aloud to the class.
Fantastic work 6H
The children in each class have the opportunity to write acts of kindness on a piece of paper and place it in the class ‘Friendship Box’. During Friday assembly the teacher draws one out and reads it out to the whole school via our Teams Assembly.
