Year Six Synopses

Those students who didn’t participate in the whole school performance of the Tempest have recorded their synopses. These have been written and spoken by students in groups. All students endeavoured to learn their lines and only in a few places were any needed to be (briefly) read. It’s been great filming them over the last two days; you’ve put a lot of effort into them and you should be proud of them.

If you check your emails on Office365, you should have got an email from me (Mr Prosser) that will send you to your video to share at home. You will need to let the videos buffer otherwise you won’t really enjoy them!

Sadly, only the videos of Henry’s, Will’s, Chloe F’s and Nicanor’s groups were available when I got home so these have been shared – the rest will have to come after half-term. Technology!

Have a great half-term.

Key Skills

Hi All

Just a reminder that all of the key skills from now on is using the revision books.  The coloured timetable we gave you directs you to which tasks to do when, and you need to bring the books in every Wednesday to go over the work.

Another copy of the timetable is attached here.Homework Revision Timetable

If drawing helps you relax, then you could have a look at the World Book Day competition and put your art skills to good use. http://www.worldbookday.com/ideas/oodles-of-doodles/

Have a wonderful half term.

The Tempest

A fabulous day learning about the Tempest!

– What did you recognise in the play from the learning that we had done in the class?
– What did you enjoy about the play?
– Did seeing the play benefit your understanding of the story?
– What questions have you now got about the Tempest?

Those of you who didn’t make the play, how was your day? What did you learn? What are your next steps?

Gurdwara Trip & Key Skills

If the above hasn’t worked, which it may not have, please see this link:

Above is a Sway of the pictures from our trip to the Gurdwara yesterday. A fascinating morning learning all about the Sikh religion and other aspects of our lives – very interesting.The Year Six children were a credit to the school: great listening, engagement and behaviour from all.

English – please comment about our trip to the Sikh Gurdwara. Think about what you learned, something that surprised you, what you think life is like for Sikhs in Britain today and anything you will add to your presentation as a result of the visit.

Year Six Day of Art

On Wednesday 2nd November we were fortunate to have two students from the University of Northampton come in: Mrs Wade and Miss Malpas. The two introduced the day and we started by choosing 4 different pieces of art and creating an art gallery which we entitled and described to everyone in the room. Following on from this, the children were given the task of creating any sort of expressive art with the materials and technology provided. We had materials such as Plasticine, wire, mannequins, printing equipment, paints, fabrics and more. The technology came with a green screen and a dark tent; East Hunsbury Primary School lent us some iPads that we used to create and manipulate some art with.
The students of Churchill and Mandela were extremely focused and collaborative all day long and the art students were impressed! The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and were great at not only sharing their art and their ideas on Friday but listening to one another and asking great questions.

Here is a Sway of the outcomes and students working towards them:
