We loved our outdoor learning lesson this week. After a unit learning about perimeter, area and volume, the children in year 6 dazzled us with their knowledge, teamwork and creativity by completing challenges in teams!



Within school we are using an online platform called ‘Class Dojo’. It can be accessed via any smart phone/tablet/computer.

I have sent out email log ons and paper copies of a link to ‘Class Dojo’ that was mentioned in the ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting. I hope that you are able to access this to see how many points your children are receiving at school.
Also, you can see all the fantastic learning we have been doing as I upload pictures and posts.



English
We have used a video called ‘Trapped’ to inspire our writing this half term.
We have learnt about different language techniques that allow us to build suspense in our narratives.
We wrote our own piece of suspense narrative, and look forward to sharing these with you at our class assembly (Wednesday 16th October).

Design and Technology
As part of our Alma focus, we have been designing and making our own Alma dolls.
We discussed our target audience and researched dolls that are already available to buy.
