Excellent Enrichment!

We have had a very enriched week this week! On Monday, we threw ourselves into our British Values enrichment day and were unpicking our opinions on Respect and Rule of Law. On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to be invited to the library to watch the WWI play, ‘The First’. We came back buzzing about the performance and were very grateful that every single one of us had been given an actual book of the play. Friday was our Art enrichment day and we developed our Sketching, Painting and Modelling skills: it was a lot of fun and we all thoroughly enjoyed showing off our creative talents!

As well as all of this, we finished our Chicken writes (which earned us a class credit as they were all so fabulous) and on Thursday, we enjoyed a whole day of topic based on the Battle of Marathon. This led very nicely into our Homework Project Showcase where we shared the work with our friends and were able to taste some delicious Greek dishes. Thank you to everyone that took part 🙂

Next week, we’ll be back into the routine and our Learn Its will be:

6 x 9 = 54

7 x 9 = 63

9 x 9 = 81

Keep your eyes peeled for a new exit passcode…..

Remember, remember

Y6 have had a week of remembering all sorts of things and it feels like we’ve packed a fortnight’s worth of learning in this week 😅

Today, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Year 5 on the BBC Live Remembrance lesson. Alongside thousands of other children across the country, we wrote our own Remembrance Haikus. Post yours here for everyone to see or maybe you would like to compose a new one. Remember: 5,7,5

Have a look at this link to see a short video about the stunning  Remembrance flames surrounding the Tower of London to mark the centenary of the end of WWI.

We continued with our work on Multiplication in Maths and are now all working on the last step of the Multiplication Progress Drive. Can you remember what the Remember Tos are when multiplying a two place decimal number by TU?

In English, we have been writing and punctuating bulleted lists. What were the Remember Tos for this?

We continued with our Science work and measured our resting pulse rates. Can you remember the pulse rates of any other living creatures?

Answer all of these challenges and I promise I’ll remember to add a stamp on the blog log!
