In year six we made mini biomes in plastic bottles.we created the biome out of stones, soil and put little seeds in the small holes we made. Then we put the biomes into the places we have chose which were freezing cold freezer, the warm radiator(by the windowsill,outside(quite windy)girls changing rooms. The biomes were the desert, tundra, taiga,Savannah ,rainforest,Decidious forest. The rainforest and the Decidious forest thrived. After that we put them in the places we put them in places we thought they would grow the best.

We worked with other year 6’s from other schools to teach them some fun playground games to years 1 and 2.
A couple of weeks ago, three year six pupils, and 2 year 5 pupils went St Anthony’s primary school to do a science workshop. We learnt about the science behind superheroes. Firstly, we learnt about Spider-Man, and how his webs work like pendulum. We also found out about a rubber ball man. The man told us how footballs that hit the cross bar usually bounce out the goal.⚽️ We found a formula to find how high the bouncy ball we were given bounced after dropped from a certain height. We had a great time.😃🔭🔬
Last Tuesday, a group of children from key stage two went to clement Danes school to perform in a music concert consisting of a choir, orchestra and a brass band. It was great fun and everybody enjoyed it massively!
First up was the orchestra , which performed Jupiter from the planets suite and radestky March. It sounded great.
The brass band walked on next . They played many excellent pieces consisting of,
- La Bamba
- I wanna hold your hand,
- And best of all, imperial march.
The choir performed last. They were fabulous. The theme was happiness and wellbeing. We performed pop, gospel, and folk songs.
It was an entertaining evening and the audience loved it!
In year six we have been writing parodies of well known fairy tales. We read a book called ‘Eco Wolf and the Three Pigs’ ,which was a parody of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ ,which inspired us to write our own. We used stories, such as: ‘Little Red Riding’ and ‘Cinderella’, which we renamed ‘Little Red Riding Wolf’ and ‘Cindersmella’. Our parodies could go up to 7 pages of writing and some people are still carrying on with them. We also made a back cover with a blurb and Illustrated it by far everyone thought this was the best bit and some people were awarded merits!
Congratulations! What an amazing class effort! Has anyone seen Wally???
