Some great collaboration this morning in Year 6 working on understanding the literary devices in The Highwayman.
Year 6 started to look at the famous poem, ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes. They thought of some excellent questions inspired by reading the first two pages.
Some great poetry writing continues in year 6. After our poetry day we are now finalising our second poem. Watch this space for some great examples.
Year 6 have been crafting poems about the teachers in our school! We look forward to reading some of them!
Year 5 and 6 worked with Paul to write this great poem. That’s no place to put a pet!
We had a great day today at school with a visit from the poet, Paul Cookson. He worked with Year 1 to Year 6 writing some great poems.
Following our visit from Mr Shafiq last week, year 6 recapped the Muslim pilgrimage of Hajj and then reflected on way this happens.
Year 6 worked hard this morning writing biographies. They used the plans they had written on their iPads. Look out for some of these on Pobble.
Year 6 have been busy working on how to write good biographies. Over the last week we have honed our writing skills and we look forward to reading the final pieces!
Year 6 had a great day out at Westinghouse Springfield last week learning about electricity. The children made circuits and thought about electrical safety. The class then had a tour of the site where fuel is manufactured for nuclear power stations, which was very interesting.
