Room 13

 Not only have we written fantastic chapters inspired by Robert Swindell's book Room 13, we have also written play scripts and acted them out. Below is an example of this.

Year 6 Media Team

 This half term, the Year 6 media team consists of Joe, Spencer, Lewis, Ricky and Noah. Their challenge is to create a newspaper article which will be shared with the class and parents. Here is the first edition of our Year 6 newspaper from the Newspaper team 'Read Our News'.

Very Victorian!

In year 6, we examined this photograph of Queen Victoria and her family as a source to discuss her life. This then inspired us to take our own family-style Victorian photo. We found it hard to be so serious!

Our World War One Remembrance Display

Year6pupil on: The Frog Blog

We have been making our own black out poetry in art/ English. We used a letter from a real World War 1 soldier and boxed the interesting words to make our own poem. Then we coloured the background and drew poppies, crosses and soldiers going to war to decorate them. 

In English, we have written letters as if we were a soldier sending a letter to our family or friends. When we had finished, everyone ripped corners and crumpled them up to look like they had been wrecked on the journey back to the UK, London.

Mouldy Montage

Year6pupil on: The Frog Blog

During our science with Mr Wilson, we have been working on a science experiment and we have decided to share it with you. We are investigating with bread to see what conditions mould grows faster on. Some of us used different breads. So far, we have recorded once how the bread is changing. We will keep you updated on our experiment. We hope you found this interesting.

Spooky Science

Year6pupil on: The Frog Blog

In our science lesson, we have been working with Mr Wilson. When it was Halloween we made a spooktastic scene. We used paper clips,plain black card,magnets and other stationary. Choosing who we were to work with, we got in to groups of 2 or 3. The class had options of different coloured card also gold and silver. We also got to use cells [batteries], wires,bulbs and buzzers. When we finished them we showed Mr Wilson and the rest of the class. Here are some of our finished creations.
