On Friday we dressed up as a book character or a word. From Alice in Wonderland to Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, here are some of the outfits that were worn in Year 6. I particularly liked the ‘Holes’ themed costumes as we have read that book as part of our writing lessons

If— by Rudyard Kipling
Well done Eagles! A fabulous poetry performance.
Inferences with evidence
Year 6 have started making inferences in guided reading and have been practising backing up their inferences with evidence. Today we looked at the picture book ‘Small Things’ and made inferences about the characters and the way they were feeling. This book is a wordless picture book so it is really useful to make inferences in order to understand what is happening throughout the story.

The Highwayman Poem
Year 6 have recently finished their writing unit based on The Highwayman Poem. Throughout the unit, the children have been spending time learning the words of the poem. Here you can watch the children performing it.
After reading The Island this week in English, the children completed a conscience alley. A child walked down the alley and the other children on either side had to give reasons for and against letting the man stay on the island. Once they had walked through the alley, the children then had to share their final decision after hearing lots of different opinions.
