Courage

We started the term thinking about bravery and courage. This artwork and poetry is on display outside our classroom.

Heart Home Learning

Here is a selection of our incredible home learning on The Heart:

Dissecting a Pig's Heart

We were lucky enough to dissect a real pig's heart to help our science topic. It was useful to really see the different areas and features we had been learning about. Enjoy our slightly gory photos...if you dare!

HAPPY

For Open Day, we made a video of us signing - that's right, signing, to Happy by Pharell Williams.

A fantastic effort from all in Year 6

Peace Doves

Peace is the new Value of the Month. As part of our thinking about peace, we discussed how we could bring peace to our school, our homes and our world. These peace doves were inspired by a quote from Hiroshima survivor Sadako Sasaki: "I will write "peace" on your wings, and you will fly all over the world"

Peace Spirals

Take a look at our Peace Spirals. Writing spirals like this is a wellbeing activity which is soothing and peaceful. After useful discussion, we decided on which words to include. The end result is beautiful!

Peace Doves

In Year 6, we discussed how we could bring peace to our class, our homes and our world. We made promised to ourselves and wrote them on these doves which symbolize peace.

French Song - Quelle heure est-il?

As part of learning about how to tell the time in French, we have learned this song. Due to Covid, only half the class are able to sing at one time. With that in mind, we recorded it twice with each half of the class having chance to sing both verses. Nous espérons que vous apprécierez notre chanson!

Percussion
In music lessons, we have been learning more about body percussion and pattern. We learned a pattern and then came up with one together. These are the 'instructions' we used and links to the songs:

Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin 
Think by Aretha Franklin

Enjoy trying these at home. Choose a song and make up your own rythmn pattern. I would LOVE to see them!
