We've had another fantastic week! I didn't get to teach all of the classes this week but...


It's been another busy week in Year 5. In Math this week, we have continued learning about...

I cannot believe how much we get through in a week Y6. You have worked so hard and your dedication...

Dramatic diaries and classification keys Y6

Home » News » Dramatic diaries and classification keys Y6

We began with dramatic diary entries this week.

We had selected a very moving but tragic series of events from the story, Exodus, to chronicle. My goodness, Year 6, your writing is powerful! Those which were read aloud caused goose bumps, and brought a tear to our eyes. Mrs Casserley and Mrs Chesters said how much empathy was evident in your writing this week. Well done, everyone. Your hard work and creativity shone through. I can't wait to read them all and know I'll be impressed by your skills. We will spend some time at the start of next week editing this work more thoroughly; just to be sure we have corrected the finer points.

After all our hard work with writing, in Science we had fun designing classification keys...for sweets! The photos show how we achieved this. We realised that we needed to ask specific questions which would 'sort' the sweets so that they could be identified. We were asked to give the sweets 'scientific' names. The results were hilarious! Cherry lips were given the name 'smoochious maximus'...and there were many more to make us giggle! There was an important learning objective too. We realised that, if we all named the same sweets differently, it wasn't very scientific and that, for scientists, a universal classification system is needed.

This afternoon, we used a technique called 'Blackout Poetry'. We took a page from our class novel and only selected specific words and phrases to create a piece of poetry. Once we'd done that, we built designs around those key words. The results are fabulous. It was a task we really enjoyed. We also worked on a sketch which represents the effects of global warming. Both of these pieces will be included in our study work books.

It has been a pleasure to share the start of the week with you, Year 6. There is a great atmosphere in the classroom; a lovely balance between hard work and fun.

Enjoy the rest of the week.
