John say: ” The reason why I enjoyed the memorial experience because we got to show to our parents all we have done in this term. It was nice to see the parents impressed with our work . It made me feel proud and made me want to continue with my learning and working very hard.”
Ismail says: “The reason why i enjoyed reading and watching Hugo Cabret is because it made me feel emotional and really understand how it would feel to be him.”
Our highlight of our topic, Designing for Life, was the LEGO workshop. We were visited by Derek Speed on Monday, who brought with him boxes and boxes of LEGO. He explained to us that we would be split into groups. Together, we would need to build a small village including: an area of water, roads, cluster of houses, a few taller houses, a train track and a bridge. Once a house had finished being built, Derek reminded us how wire a simple circuit, complete with a switch,and instructed us to put a circuit in each house so that once the city had finished being built, it looked like it had proper lights.

In year 5 we made Lego Cities /Towns we also had to make circuits to make the city light up. We were made up in group’s of 7 and the people who worked there taught us how to light up are houses and to make flats by sticking are houses together we also got train tracks and made the trains move to make sure the Lego people could travel. We had been given two cars to put on the train track because.
In our ‘Designing for Life’ topic, we remixed the ideas behind the game ‘Pac Man’ and the book, ‘The Iron Man’ to invent our very own games. Click on the link and leave a comment to let us know your thoughts on our programming skills.

…. 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 : )
