…. 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 : )
Wow! Year 6 had a great day today at the Wide Horizons centre in Eltham.
We made a human timeline, spanning from the palaeolithic period to the present day…
Made cave paintings…
Met some of the local wildlife…
Used our bare hands (almost) to make fire…
And, finally, built our own shelters…
…all in the glorious spring sunshine. A really enjoyable day and the children were fantastic.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a peaceful Easter break.
Crumbs – something alarming is happening in the woods today…
Check back later to find out more!!
Year 4 are channeling their party spirit in preparation for tomorrow’s memorable event – it’s carnival time!?
Dancing, drama and steel pans… It’s going to be great. Starting at 14:15 – we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!
In Mr Absolom’s Maths group today, we started getting our heads around the idea of percentages and how to work out the percentage of any given number.
We used this giant 100 square to help visualise how to divide any number by 100.
Once we had that sorted, we could find pretty much any percentage of any number….. well, almost!
As part of our topic – the Cycle of Life – 6A have just spent the morning exploring the amazing collections at the Natural History Museum.
We really enjoyed looking at all the specimens on display and looked at the evidence for the evolution of mankind.
Keep checking back to see what we are up to next!
In 6A, we started preparing to make models of ourselves ‘in action’.
We used these wooden mannequins to help us get an idea of the proportions of the body and where the joints are. This will be crucial to the success of our final pieces.
Keep checking back to see how we are getting on.
Year 6 arrived to find their desks covered in masking tape!? They then had to decide which angles were acute, obtuse or right.
Next, they had to use a protractor to check whether they were correct and see if they could accurately measure the angles created by the tape!
Tomorrow, we will try and identify and classify the shapes we can see on the desks…
The cast of The Tempest are on stage, warming up and getting ready to bring the house down at Greenwich Theatre tonight.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Break a leg…
6A are preparing to create their own versions of Carvaggio’s Medusa. As part of their preparation they have had to learn to make any colour they need using just these powder paints:
We spent the afternoon trying to match colours to the swatches we were given.
A real challenge was to try and make black from the colours we were given…
Have a great half term.
