Gone in a flash!

Another week has flown by in a flash! On Monday, we enjoyed making our Pear and Almond Flapjack Tart to celebrate the harvest then used the recipe to apply our maths skills in a Real Life context: it was a challenge but Year 6 went for it! I wonder if any of you will make it again over the weekend….

In our Science work on the circulatory system, we were finding out more about pulse rates and Natalie and Amy from Bassetlaw Community Children’s Team helped us to listen to our heart beat and to measure some children’s blood pressure. We can’t wait for them to visit us again in a couple of weeks with even more equipment for us to try out!

Friday afternoon was very peaceful: we used our RE time to make an artistic representation of the creation of the universe. The artwork that we created was spectacular!

Perhaps the biggest highlight of the week has been our success on the Hit the Button game that we have been using to speed up our recall of the 8 times table. Sooooo many children beat their scores on the Learn Its Challenge because of the extra work that they have been putting in at home πŸ™‚ Year 6 have been very competitive and at the moment, Kendall is in the lead with a high score of 40!!!! Post your scores here over the weekend but be truthful…. because we might have a play off next week!

If there are a couple of niggly 8 x table facts that you need to master, why not try this link? It works out your target areas and trains you on them so you’ll be bossing the Hit the Button in no time at all! When you get on the site, set up ‘Multiply’ and ‘by12’ on the orange buttons at the top, workout time 2 minutes and ‘8x row’ on the blue buttons.

Have a busy weekend and I’ll see you all on Monday buzzing about your scores….

    1. I know you have been trying your best to be good in school – it feels great doesn’t t?! Your mum knows you can do it, I know you can do it and YOU know you can do it so go for it!!! πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Mrs Larkin sorry I didn’t make the pear and almond flapjack I was a bit busy with homework. I can’t wait for you to eat my Greek salad. When I made it with my aunty I tried it and it was really nice. The ingredients are simple Tomatoes, Red onion, Cucumber, Oregano, Olive oil, feta cheese and Kalamata Olives it was really good fun to make It!

  6. No I don’t really eat olives. But if you mix things up it is nice because you get the flavour in it. Oh by the way I have some olives in one pot, olive oil in another and some bread, and I have some pictures to show you tomorrow of me making it!
