Acts of kindness

As part of Anti-Bullying Week this week, Year 6 were set the challenge to complete secret acts of kindness towards a chosen person. Each child had to be extra kind to one person all week so that by the end of the week that child could guess who it was!
It was really nice to hear how the children were showing kindness to each other throughout the week.

Here are some of the ways they were kind to one another:

• Helping a friend in lessons.
• Choosing to play with somebody every day.
• Paying compliments to their chosen person.
• Asking if they have had a nice day.

Using dictionaries

Year 6 have been using dictionaries this morning in their spelling lesson. The children have been working with a partner to discuss the meanings of different words before checking their ideas against a dictionary and finding the definitions.

The words are words from the Year 5 and 6 spelling list and we will be working on them throughout the week.

Anti-Bullying Week

This week is Anti-Bullying week and we are ready to start the week wearing our very own badges that we designed and created ourselves!

Today we have introduced the random acts of kindness activity. The children must demonstrate random acts of kindness throughout the week to a chosen person. At the end of the week we will have a circle time where we will try to guess who was being extra kind to who!

Exploring light and reflection

Year 6 have started their science unit this week – light and electricity.

So far the children have explored light and reflection. During the first lesson the children discussed what light is, different types of light sources and how light helps us to see things. The chidden have demonstrated their understanding of how light enables us to see things through drawing some brilliant diagrams and writing explanations.

In the second lesson, the children explored reflection. They had an opportunity to investigate reflection using a torch, irrelevant and a target piece of paper. After they had spent time exploring, the children were introduced to a periscope. This is a device that enables people to see around, under and above different objects/obstructions. Again, the children did a fantastic job of demonstrating their understanding of what they had learnt with some fantastic work.

As we currently can’t provide children with the opportunity to share their excellent work in assemblies like we usually would, I thought I would share some of the excellent work below.
