Don’t forget that every week, Mathletics homework is set - pupils need to log in to complete their homework before they can play any further Mathletics games.

Year 6 have made clay tiles depicting what they learnt during their India topic.

Maths Investigations

As part of their SCIENCE WEEK work, Year 6 found out about some Cutting-edge science research in Rainforests. Termites which make tunnels and decompose the leaf litter on the forest floor are helping the Rainforest be more resilient to global warming. We enjoyed investigating why termites are well adapted to droughts and tested tunnel strength in wet and dry conditions.

Fun in the Snow

Year 6 had fun making memories during their World War II themed day. They collaborated to develop their code cracking skills, loved learning about the Blitz from a special visitor ( via Zoom!) and shone as 1940s dance students in a Jitterbug dance workshop.

Diwali Day

     

 

SM10 have had a great week learning about Hazel Hill for our WW2 topic and learning all about Diwali for Diwali day. Mrs Awesti showed us how to make beautiful rangoli style pattern light catchers that look amazing when the sun shines through the window. These, along with our Hazel Hill spitfires make a great display on the classroom window.                       

Remembrance Day

In RE we used role play to show actions that we believed that God dislikes and then we corrected these to show forgiveness.

Christian Values

Our new Christian value for this half term is hope. At school, we would have been looking at what this means for Christians and therefore how they live their lives. The attached document has some information about this Christian value and some videos you can watch. Please make sure you ask an adult before clicking the links. It also contains some questions for you to reflect upon.

Spreading Happiness and Kindness During This Time 

We spend many opportunities at school, through collective worship and personal reflections, looking at how we can support others in line with our school's vision and our Christian values. This resource has a few more ideas that you may choose to do during school closure to bring a little bit of happiness to others, whilst keeping everyone safe. We know so many of you are already doing little things to help already. Please feel free to use this as your family would like to. The suggested activities are for those who live in your household. Just a reminder that this is not set home learning and children do not have to do any/all of the suggested activities but we are sure that the children will enjoy spreading kindness and happiness through these and other ways, as they always do.
