This week for visual literacy we have been doing work around The Nutcracker. On Monday we "went to the ballet" and watched the performance. We all got dressed up and enjoyed the interval snacks. 

We then drew comic strips to retell a scene from the performance before making our own puppets and stage to recreate a scene. 

We have all ready enjoyed our learning this week and here are a few pictures of what we have done.

The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly 2020

Watch with us as over a million students across the UK come together for The Big Anti-Bullying Assembly 2020.

We started off Anti Bullying week by sharing compliments with each other. We wanted to make everyone feel special and know that they are not alone if they are a victim of bullying. Children were made aware of who they can go to for help and support.

Today we had portals to the past visit us for our Victorian Day.

Here are a few photos and what we learnt from the day, which was very informative.


We learnt that schools and school uniform were invented during the Victorian Era. Here is a hat from Eaton, a very prestigious school where people have to pay to attend.


If you made a mistake at school during Victorian Times, children were made to wear the dunce hat and stand in the corner. You would have to face the wall all day, including missing your lunchtime.


We then had to recite our arithmetic, if we got it wrong for the school inspector, then our teacher would not get paid for that term.



If you missed behaved, you would get hit. (No child was hit or hurt during today’s session, we were just acting.)



We learnt how the Victorians sent messages through wires and they could send messages to America, India and Australia. The messages were a series of beeps which translated to letters. A messenger would then write the note and take it to the recipient who would then pay them. 

Another job which Victorian children may have had were being a chimney sweep. Children would be squeezed up the chimney to clean it and they would light the fire beneath them so they did not fall down.


We then acted out stories putting movement to the words of the story.





This afternoon we looked at a range of artefacts and played with some Victorian toys.

On Friday it is Big Write. This week we will be writing a non-chronological report on the Great White Shark. You may want to start thinking about this in advance and researching some interesting facts.

For the lesson we will be watching the following two videos which will also provide some information and facts.

In Year 6 we have been reading holes as our class novel and using this as our writing stimulus in English as well. We have also been working really hard to follow our new handwriting scheme of letterjoin. Here is our display of some of our final published pieces of description writing all about the yellow spotted lizard as well as some focused art work on some of its distinguishable features.  We are all really proud of our work!

Thursday 1st October 2020

Today is ‘National Poetry Day’. We will be exploring a poem titled, ‘The Kingfisher’ from the book ‘ The Lost Words’. We will post some photos of our work linked with this.

Today we had a special letter delivered into class.

First we read the poem before acting out the poem, bring the words alive. Then we recreated the Kingfisher picture using a range of art techniques.

We had a go at using feathers and ink to write our poems.

Here are some examples of our finished artwork.

Take a look at some of our fantastic pieces of artwork. We used tea bags to create the background and used water colours to paint the kingfisher.

Wednesday 30th September 2020

Instead of Miss ORourke giving us our ‘normal questions’ in guided understanding, we got to work with our partner to make our own retrieval questions. We used question stems to support us and then we answered each other’s questions. It was lots of fun!

Wednesday 30th September 2020

Today in English we used 2B and 4H pencils to draw and shade our own pictures of the Yellow-Spotted Lizard from our class novel ‘holes’. We were bringing the words from the text to life!
