We have had yet another brilliant week with our super Year 6 children! In PE, they have been enjoying gymnastics. So far, we have looked about travels, jumps and rolls and how to make these graceful and elegant. We have also continued our Science topic in which we are looking at Carl Linnaeus and his classification system. A highlight has been our study of the social impact of the Industrial Revolution where we looked at the creation of the police force – the ‘bobbies’ – who tackled rising crime rates, as well as health ramifications such as the rise of cholera.
We would love to share lots of photos of your children at school on the blog. Could we kindly ask you to ensure that you have completed the online form to give permission for your child to appear on the blog.
Harry Potter Writing
This week we have been continuing to explore our text: Harry Potter. Over the last few days, we have begun to write our own version of Chapter 1. Children have been working hard to uplevel their vocabulary looking at using interesting and powerful verbs and adverbs whilst also looking at sentence structure.
This is a small selection of the superb first drafts that we’ve had this week!
