# Quote me on that!!

Following our work today on sources for an article, can you post a source suitable for a newspaper report about an eruption of Mount Vesuvius? It can be anyone you want, but remember to make it more fact than story based.

# This week, I have been…

Why don’t you let us know what you’ve been up to during the holidays? Have you met up with friends or family? Been somewhere special? Send a quick post to tell us all.

# Somone’s getting comfy!!

Josh is not giving that throne up!! For the third week in a row he is our King of the City. Well  done, Josh, for completing the most activities and for redoing activities to improve on your original score 🙂 Special mention to Finlay for your efforts – you were only four activities behind Josh. Is anyone going to become our Queen or will it be Josh and Finlay battling it out again next week ..?

# What are you doing???!!!

If you could ask this man any question, what would it be?

# The King retains his crown!

I’m afraid you’re in for a disappointment girls: Josh remains King of the City for another week! Once again, he was the most accurate and the most prolific (look it up!) player. Well done Josh. How about you try for three weeks in a row? Special mentions to Finlay for some super spelling work and Lily for working on her maths. You’ve got lots of time this week to try to steal that crown so get playing!

# This week in Year 6

This week, we’ve been busy learning about different types of average in Numeracy and we’ve rounded off our learning with Miss Cocker and Miss Earl by playing some great maths games today. Earlier in the week, we completed our newspaper reports about a volcanic eruption and wrote similes and metaphors in SPAG. We’ve learnt how to create links within PowerPoint and continued our Science investigations into forces. We’ve learnt another couple of songs to help our learning this week: can you remember the words to the averages song and the 5 Ks song?

Have a great holiday and keep checking in on the blog to reply to the new posts 🙂

# Which volcano am I? #5

I am an active, composite volcano. I am most famous for my eruption on 18th May 1980. Volcanic ash and pyroclastic flows made me the deadliest and most economically destructive volcano in the history of the United States. The cost to repair the damage done was over 3 billion dollars! Which volcano am I?

I’ll award two signatures for identifying the correct volcano before I reveal the answer and then further signatures for anyone posting facts. Good luck!

Well done to Josh, Jessica and Nikola, it is Mount St Helens. Can anyone post any good facts now..?

# King of the City#2

We have a King of the City again! Well done to Josh for completing the most activities this week – he won by a mile!! Special mentions to Jonathan and Finlay, Josh’s nearest rivals. There are new activities loaded into our ‘My City’: why not have a go this week and try to steal Josh’s crown?

# Which volcano am I? #4

I am a volcano in Indonesia; I share the same name as the island on which I am found. In 1883, my eruption caused the island to explode: it was one of the most powerful explosions ever. It could be heard 3000 miles away and was four times more powerful than the biggest atomic bomb ever detonated. Which volcano am I?

I’ll award two signatures for identifying the correct volcano before I reveal the answer and then further signatures for anyone posting facts. Good luck 🙂

Well done to Josh, Nikola, Tamzin and Emilian for posting the correct answer: I’ll put two signatures each on the chart for you all 🙂 Now that we know it’s Krakatoa, who can post some CAREFULLY SELECTED facts about this volcano?

# Volcano formation

This afternoon, we continued our work on how a volcano is formed by creating edible models (mmm 🙂 ). Using geographical language, can you name the main parts that you represented?
