Fruit is fantastic so we thought we would give the children the chance to try some in the form of fruit kebabs and smoothies.
You can find out important information about the beginning of the new term on our weekly newsletter here. Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and we will see you on Tuesday.
Our new topic this term is Let’s Get Digging so the children have been learning about where our food comes from and how it is grown.
The children have been planting seeds all week and they will be learning how to look after and care for them.
Thank you for all your kind donations of seeds, pots and other growing resources. We will be using more of them in the coming weeks.
Dear diary, I saw that Jessica got into my diary and I have appointed a guard… my pet ladybird Dave! Yazzy loves it but mum thinks I’m being silly Yaz wants to say something
Yah Dave the… ladyguard? No, sounds he’s a girl umm… guardbird, but he’s not a bird. Anyway Dave is an excellent guard, he once guarded my pencil for me and no one stole it
Yeah, but you chew your pencil…
Shush. Look, you’re making Dave sad.
Sorry Dave, you’re an excellent guard… oh we’ve got to go now, bye Dave
Volume I: The Prince and the Old Woman
In Italy 400 years ago, there lived a Prince Ferdinand. He lived in a large palace with his 19 brothers. Because he was the oldest, he was next in line to be king. One day, his father, King Alberto, decided that it was time for Ferdinand to get a wife. For the next 3 weeks, maidens from all throughout Italy came to prove why they would make a good wife to him. Unfortunately, Ferdinand didn’t like any of them. One day, an old woman entered the palace. She told Ferdinand that he wouldn’t find his ideal wife, but they would find him. Ferdinand thanked the old lady and asked the king to stop the search. For the next few days, Prince Ferdinand lived a normal life, certain that the old woman was right. One day, when he was out shopping in the market, he met a beautiful young woman buying fruit. The prince fell in love with her immediately. Her name was Isabella, and she was a poor young woman. Ferdinand decided that she was the correct woman to be his wife. He bought a wedding ring and the next time he saw her in the market, he proposed to her. She accepted the proposal straight away and they lived happily ever after.
Going into the rocket to get the powers back for all the ‘Super Heroes’
To kick off our new topic, Gosh and Wow, we had a Circus visit! We watched the circus performer demonstrate his amazing skills and then we had a go at lots of different circus activities. We can’t wait to show off the skills we learnt at our memorable event at the end of this term!
…. for a happy memorable event!
This afternoon, our oldest children combined with some of the youngest children in the school, to share Year 6’s work on habitats and adaptation.
Year 6 created clues and took the Year 1 children on a hunt around the school grounds.
We then shared some of our fantastic animals, that we had created in our English work.
The children worked really well together and cooperated beautifully.
Cheers – the Year 6 Team : )
