8) Some spare carrier bags in which to put wet towels and dirty clothes will be useful.
See you all tomorrow morning at the normal time.
Year 6 have recently completed a research project. In their groups, they chose a particular mountian range and spent time reseraching all aspects about it.
They learnt about things like location, wildlife, recreation, people who have scaled the mountains and many other elements.
We set out all the projects in the hall and spent some time looking at all the other groups’ work. We left comments on a comment sheet to say what we thought about their projects.
Even with such a busy week we have managed to make and bake our bread! Designed and made entirely by the Year 6 pupils!
We have been doing some more research on the Aztecs this morning.
Leave a comment with at least one fact you have learnt and can remember !
We have started designing some Aztec masks. They are going to be made out of clay and then decorated the week after.
This links in with our History topic!
Here are some of our first efforts at writing using techniques to build suspense:
Take a look at this video – we’ll be using parts of it next week!
This morning, we have been generating ideas for making our own bread. Last week, we tasted lots of different types of bread and decided what we liked and what we didn’t like.
Here are some of our ideas.
Today, we did some work on converting a story into a script format. We used ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ as a stimulus. Here are some examples being read out.
We have been working on some Powerpoint presentations to show our research on The Aztecs. We will put the finished products online when they are done.
Can you give me some facts you have already learnt about The Aztecs? 1hp for each fact you leave as a comment!
Tomorrow, you will be starting a large group project on Mountain ranges. Here is a video to get you thinking and planning.
