What have we been learning?

UK Parliament week
This was held during the week Nov1-7 and the children responded with enthusiasm (They do so like to have their say!). We held a class debate ‘Are footballers good role models?’-the consensus was yes. We tuned into live debate from the House of Commons to watch our M.P Andrew Selous in action. Following this, we were lucky enough to have a Zoom lesson with Mr Selous, who was certainly well-quizzed by the class.

 
Anne Frank
As our class name is Anne Frank and Anti-bullying week was approaching, a workshop with the Anne Frank Foundation was organised. We now have 7 Anne Frank ambassadors in the class.

 
Science Plants
To learn about variation in plants we went for a walk in our school environment and sorted and identified plants.
 
Science Micro-organisms
Year 6 were very interested in Microbiology and enjoyed a Zoom lesson from the Francis Crick Research center in central London. Yasmin, who is Mrs Ingham’s niece) told us all about her job and showed us around the laboratory.
Some excellent explanations were written in English the following day.
 
Art Trip
After studying the work of landscape photographer and naturalist Ansel Adams, we went to take photographs of our own with ipads on a trip to Dunstable Downs-it was a beautiful, crip morning-perfect.

Children in Need-This was celebrated with the usual enthusiasm and generous giving.

 
Design Technology
As part of their learning in food technology on ‘Great British Dishes’, children enjoyed designing, making, eating and evaluating their own Ploughman’s lunches.

 
Decoration Day
A relaxed day of creativity with a stained glass theme;children enjoyed making lanterns, candle holders and cards.

 

Friday 16th October. A celebration as the Stars of the week for Big Maths receive their certificates. Well done everybody!

We are reading The Spiderwick Chronicles and did some ‘Boggarty role play’ to help us write a diary in the style of a Boggart-such mischievous creatures!

Have a look at what else we have been up to.
