We had an exciting morning yesterday when visiting the synagogue in Shadwell. The children were extremely well behaved and acted very maturely. It was very interesting to see the features we have been learning about in real life and we learnt some fascinating facts. The staff at the synagogue were very impressed with how much information the children could remember and the questions they asked. Thank you again to those of you who gave up your time to come with us!
In our Science lesson today, we investigated why shadows change when the distance between the object and the light source changes.
We worked in small groups and each chose our own object to use in our investigation.
We found out that the closer we moved the torch to the object, the larger the shadow was.
This week, we are developing our ‘reflective’ learning muscle.
We kicked off by editing our writing with our partner’s help.
In pairs, we took it in turns to read each other’s work, allowing us to hear any grammatical mistakes we had made. We then used our green pens to edit where necessary and improve our vocabulary choices where we could. As well as this, we helped each other to spot any spelling mistakes.
We have worked our socks off today writing a description of the setting from the character’s perspective.
These three boys have worked particularly hard and have produced an excellent piece of writing.
In Haroon’s words, “Not only Year 6 do fantastic writing!”
Well done boys!
Well done to Mehuli who is our writer of the week!
We have been developing our Relationships Learning Muscle this week.
We have been working together (collaborating with each other)…
We have been sharing our own ideas…
We have been supporting one another and explaining steps clearly when problem solving…
We enjoyed Mrs Whiteley’s book and character quiz in our library session this afternoon. We were very competitive but the winners were: Mehuli, Sophie, Nafisa and Gia.
