We used atlases to draw the continents and oceans on our balloons. Then we used the atlases to consider if we needed to leave Syria, what route would we choose to reach the UK and what problems we might face on our journey.
With the sun beating down, two year 6 teams took to the rounders' fields at KHS. Competing against teams from four other schools, they showed great sportsmanship, bowling improved, catches became more common and some surprising rounders were earned.
Well done to everyone for a great afternoon of sport!
Having tried to use chopsticks to eat rice earlier in the year, the class were assessed as needing further practise.
A youtube film has supported our learning in this endeavour.
Many of us are now able to eat noodles using chopsticks without feeling awkward and had no soya sauce dripping down our chins either.
Our first task was to design an advert for our theme park with snappy slogans and eye-catching pictures: the winner won an extra £50,000 to spend on building their theme park. Our second task was to spend our £500,000 (for most of us) on planning our theme park. We could choose from different category rides, but had to keep a running total to ensure that we did not go over budget. Finally, we swapped plans with another group who evaluated our theme park and decided which ticket price our theme park qualified for.
Year 6 have been gathering everyday this week before their tests to stock up on energy with toast and juice. Many have exceeded expected level of toast consumption. The atmosphere has been wonderful each day in the hall.
After breakfast, circle time has given the children the chance to come together as a class and support each other. We are incredibly proud of how hard the children have worked and how focused they have been during this week.
