Once again we would like to thank you all for your fabulous contributions this week. There have been some fantastic talents on show and you should all be really proud of yourselves!

Baking

My goodness! When I set the children this challenge last week I never imagined we would have so many amazing entries! We have seen all sorts of brilliant bakes from cookies to cakes and scones to pastries! A huge well done to all involved and you have made it an extra tough decision for us to make.

Here are all of the wonderful creations entered.

The Star Baker from 6J is Olivia and the Star Baker from 6S is Aaminah!

Well done to both of you!

Musical talents

I was absolutely blow away this week with children’s responses to our musical talents assignment. We don’t always have the opportunity to see these talents in school and since the start of Covid we haven’t even been able to sing so it was lovely to see the children expressing themselves in a range of different ways. Sorry if your talent isn’t here. I couldn’t get them all to upload onto Youtube!

Science

In Science, the children were asked to be palaeontologists. They were given the very tricky task of trying to identify an animal from just its skeleton and they had to piece it together one bone at a time. The children did really well and were able to apply their previous knowledge of fossils to answer some tricky questions. We revealed later in the lesson which animal they had been digging up, a xenosmilus!

English poetry

In English, we started to learn about the subjunctive mood, which is a verb form used in more formal writing. It can be used to express wishes and demands or when thinking about conditions that are not true, for example, ‘If I were rich, I would buy a huge house.’ To help us remember how to use the subjunctive, we wrote our own poems, using the starting line, ‘If I were…’ As always, the children had some very imaginative ideas!

One more advert…

I would also like to share one more snow leopard advert from last week with you. Gabriella filmed this brilliant advert and then sent it to the WWF, who were very impressed with her work and sent her a lovely letter in reply! How fantastic to see children using their work to make a difference.

What a fabulous week we have had; a huge well done to everyone!

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

We’ve made it to the end of January! Well done to everyone for keeping motivated; we’ve been blown away again this week by the effort everyone is putting into their work at home (and at school). Here are some of the things we have been doing this week…

PE

This week the children were challenged with a Jedi workout followed by a relaxing Yoga session to improve their flexibility and strength. There were some lovely examples of work submitted. Please see below and don’t forget to keep sending them in – it is great to see you active!

Art

The children have continued to impress us with their artistic talents. This week, we wanted a little time away from the screen and opted to draw something from nature. The children were encourage to go for a walk, look outside their window or find an element of nature which inspired them. We had lots of lovely sketches and some pretty creative ideas too! Well done.

Amazing Adaptations!

In Science this week the children found out how some of their favourite animals are adapted to survive in their environments. We had some very informative and well-researched presentations!

The children were also given the task of designing their own animal that would be adapted to survive in an imaginary environment. We had some very creative designs that showed careful consideration of the characteristics that their animals would need in order to survive.

Adverts

Finally, in English, after reading the poem Snow Leopard by Philip Gross, the children created their own adverts to persuade people to help save these endangered animals. I am so impressed with the effort that went into this work! Warning: reading and listening to these adverts may make you want to donate your money!

By Olivia
By Kiera
By Iman
By Oliver
By Hannah (and I tried it with the music: it does sound good!)
By Nathan

Well done to everyone for a wonderful week of home learning. Particular well done to Gracie, Isaac, Olivia, Arthur and Esha who were all given special mention in today’s assembly.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
