The Piano, Blood and Victorian Crime and Punishment

This fortnight, Year Six have finished their stories based on the video that they have been watching, called ‘The Piano’. They watched a small section every day, then wrote a descriptive paragraph using a different writing technique. The final product is expected to be outstanding – look out for it on a display board sometime soon!

In Science, Year Six have been learning about blood. They have researched, taken notes and written up fact booklets, posters or leaflets informing people about what blood is made up of, how it works and why it is needed.

In Maths, the children have been mastering fractions all the way from addition to mixed numbers, they have been working extremely hard and are looking forward to learning how to multiply and divide them next week!

This week, the school have had a special visit from the NSPCC. They told us about child cruelty and what to do if we are worried about something. We are going to take part in a fundraising sporty day, so please look out for them information packs and consider sponsoring your child - all of the money will go to the NSPCC. Make sure all sponsor money is handed in by the 9th of February.

Also, the children have been busy learning about crime and punishment in different periods. This week we have been learning about Victorian crimes and how they got handled. Some children are writing stories based on our knowledge of crime and punishment in the Victorian times; the rest are writing what it was like to be a child criminal in the Victorian times.

Please remember that all parents of Year Six children have been invited to a SATs evening on Wednesday 1st February 2017, at 6pm. Children are welcome to attend too.
