Use your powers of persuasion

Image result for visit derbyshireThis website is worth a look to see how you can persuade visitors that they can’t afford to miss out. If you wanted to look at the towns and villages link on there, you can also find more information about your group’s town. When you’ve done that, perhaps you could write a little post (in your own words) persuading us about an attraction we’d be bonkers to miss…

Papier Mache Homework Project

Here are some useful links if you’re looking for ideas on how to get started:

How to make a papier mache mountain

Some super images on Pinterest

You might want to create your topic group mountain or another famous mountain from around the world. Maybe you’ll add some supporting research about the mountain you’ve created. Try to keep it manageable and allow yourself enough time for it to dry and be decorated. Remember – big isn’t necessarily better and don’t forget you’ll be taking it home at the end of term!


Back into the swing of things

We’ve had a busy week in Year 6 after all the excitement of snow days and World Book Day! On Wednesday, some of us had an excellent visit to the Apple store at Meadowhall with Mr Cawkill and Mrs Abbott where we had an amazing time working with the staff there on Garage Band.

On Thursday, we enjoyed showcasing our Victorian homework projects and a record breaking 16 Y6s were in the hall having completed 5 or more projects. Alex F even completed 10!!!!!!! I wonder what you will all choose as your reward for all of your hard work.

Our maths assessments are complete now and have earned us a class credit for our fabulous understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages 🙂

We’re back into our Read Theory quizzes and have completed 403 between us earning another class credit! We are starting to see now that hard work really does pay!

Completed quizzes: Elisha 46 and Jack C 97 – you two can both have 3 signatures.

Your target for next week is 250 as a class – I wonder if you will remember to keep going on at home…
