Term 6 2019




What a fantastic start to Term 6!  3 days away challenging ourselves, taking ourselves out of our comfort zones and trying new things - for some it started with the challenge of making their own beds!  We also had an exploding bathroom tap which caused the girls some excitement on the first night!  Thank goodness for Mr Moon, plenty of towels and a corkscrew!  Oh and Mrs Simmonds with a mop!


The children were a delight to be with and behaved brilliantly.  Well done Year 6!

A very interesting visit from magistrates, Alvin Shaw and Mary Winder.  The children listened very well, participated well in discussions and role play.

Check out some of our writing from Term 3 !

Great narrative writing based on Wolf Brother.  Continued from the point that Torak has been been captured by the leader of the Raven Clan who has just given the order for Torak to be taken downstream and killed!

Marvellous Music

Still image for this video
During this term, we looked at music that accompanies film. We listened to clips and guessed what might be happening in the films at this point -- fight scenes, magic or suspense.
We then watched a clip from the film Coraline but without sound. We talked about how the musical elements might change throughout the clip and the instruments we might hear.
Our next task was to work in groups to create a soundtrack to the clip. This took a few weeks to record, rehearse and then finally perform.
Here are our masterpieces - each one different but wonderful. Enjoy!
