On Monday, Year 6 students got a chance to interact with the Year 7 students, to see what maths is like in Senior School. They did a range of activities involving different math units. The activities were: How fast you can run, Jurassic Park, World cup and Construction Building. Most of the students favorite activity was the Construction Building because they said it was very fun and intense. Here is a video of us interviewing the students and some picture of Marvelous Maths Day.

In 6SW, we have been writing a setting description for our Shakespearean play scripts. Many of us have came up with brilliant ideas such as using the poetic devices that we have learned over the past few weeks such as antithesis, oxymoron, irony, puns and other devices. We all had fun expressing our ideas on that piece of writing. Most of them were FABULOUS and they were really enjoyable to read.

Do you think you would be able to bring amazing ideas just like these two and how?

We all know that the year 6’s are going to move into Senior School soon, so we decided to ask some of the year 6’s what they are most looking forward to and their worries. We also decided to ask some year 7’s honest opinions, tips and what’s great about going into the Senior School!

Recently, in Literacy 6JN have been planning to write a play in Shakespearean language. Here is how we did it :
- first we thought of which Shakespearean themes we wanted our play to have (revenge, murder, romance etc…)
- then we came up with a setting that would help us develop our themes
- after that we created some characters that could be in our setting
- at the end we made a story map to show what we wanted our story to be
Here are 2 examples from Jenna and Ethan:
For the past few weeks, 6DL have been making Anderson Shelters for our last topic, WW2 in DT. Using different materials such as steel wires, wooden sticks, chopsticks, and rubber bands (to secure the chopsticks to the wire) we got a chance to make our own DIY Shelters! We also learned new words like foundation, shell, and wooden frame. We are currently making the shell; the finished piece looked really cool and realistic. Here are some of the examples.
