Year 6 Owls
Owls, thank you for working super hard this term! I am very lucky to have such a brilliant class!
Thank you for all the lovely Christmas presents and cards. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year! I look forward to seeing you all back in school for the spring term on Monday 7th January 2019.
Christmas Shoebox Appeal
Thank you for all your generous donations that has helped to support our school shoebox appeal for the homeless. As a class, we put together our own Christmas box for the appeal. Thank you to a few of the Owl girls who stayed in at lunchtime to beautifully decorate the box and wrap the presents- you did a wonderful job!
In art, we have been learning about the life and artwork of William Morris. We took inspiration from his artwork to design and create our own nature-themed wallpaper using Styrofoam block printing.
In Literacy, we have been studying the novel ‘Trash’ by Andy Mulligan. In small groups, we acted out the beginning section of the book where Gardo and Raphael receive a visit from the police, asking if they’ve found a leather bag on the dumpsite.
Children In Need
On Friday 16th November, it was Children in Need. This year's theme was 'Do your Thing', which meant we were able to come to school wearing whatever we wanted in exchange for a small donation. The Owls' outfits were amazing so we just had to do a little class photo shoot- hope you like the pictures!
During poetry week, each morning group learnt a poem off by heart and performed them to parents on Friday afternoon. The Owls performed the poem 'Annie McClue' by Murray Lachlan Young.
Well done Owls- you were all fantastic!!!

In science, we have been learning about light and sight. We carried out an experiment to investigate how light travels and made our very own periscopes using card and mirrors.
During the second week of school, we held our annual democracy week. Many children campaigned throughout the week and delivered fantastic manifestos during Friday's elections. It was a very hard decision for the children who voted as all the candidates were fantastic! However, after all the votes were counted, the results were revealed: Oscar (School Council), Will (Eco Warrior) and Elliot (UNICEF Ambassador).
Team Building Games
During induction week, we played several red-cup team building games- it was really fun!
