Well done to Lola for some fantastic figurative language in English this week.
Holly has continued to work hard with her reading.
Edward is always polite and demonstrates good manners.
Douglas has been working really hard with his writing, persevering with writing longer pieces.
Sophie has been reading consistently at home and has performed very well in our reading assessments.
Katy has been very respectful to staff and children, and she has been very kind to others when they needed it.
Year 6 have been learning about the function of the heart. The week started by dissecting a lamb’s heart and looking at the parts. We also used a balloon to replicate how the heart pumps blood around the body.
We then carried out an investigation to explore the impact of different activities on our heart rate.
The children also investigated what blood is made up of and the function of each component. We used syrup, to represent the plasma; red sweets, to represent the red blood cells; marshmallows, to show the white blood cells, and cereal for the platelets. The children also investigated how blood clots.
Year 6 have been learning about what attracts bees. We explored the school grounds and discovered that there are lots of plants and flowers that would attract bees but we could be a little bit more ‘bee friendly. The children have put their suggestions to Mr Dale and Mrs Turner, with lots of good ideas for our new reflection area.
