After last years Year 6 completed their missions successfully, it now falls to you,  the new Year 6, to take over their tour of duty. 

2017 Mission: Your Mission 2018, Year 6, is to continue the fight led by your previous colleagues and to destroy the enemy we like to refer to as SATs - although in class, the codename , 'Fluffy Unicorns' will continue to be used to be used. 

Be brave, train hard and you will be victorious.

But before that, we've got some fun to have..

Class 4 Found Working in Silence !

A strange phenomenon has occurred this half term, with class 4 being found working in absolute silence.

A major cause of this odd event has been the determination to beat the infamous 'Mad Minute Multiplication Challenge'. 

As these pictures show, it's no surprise that we are flying through our times tables at breakneck speed.

Click on the Maths link below for copies of the Mad Minute test to try at home.

Are they asleep?  No , I think they're actually hard at work!

    

       

APART FROM THESE TWO OBVIOUSLY!

Titanic Poetry

(Quite Literally...)

We started the summer term by studying an amazing poem by Thomas Hardy , called 'The Convergence of the Twain', about the meeting of the Titanic and the iceberg which sealed it's fate.

Click to read some of our incredible poems

We really got to grips with this tricky but powerful poem, expanding our vocabulary and improving our poetry skills.  Have a look at the poem we created in class together below.  If you think this is good, come back soon when all our incredible Titanic poems will be online.

Here's our class poem which the children in Class 4 wrote as

a collaborative effort before creating their own individual poetry.

 


 

The debate has been raging in Class 4 as to whether graffiti is a terrible form of vandalism or a beautiful modern art.

In our literacy lessons we have honed our balanced argument skills and produced some fantastic writing, presenting both sides of the debate.  The general consensus was that if graffiti is put up in designated areas, and the artists are not breaking the law, it can be a fantastic, imaginative style of art.

 

In art, we have learnt the skills needed to design striking designs, using the features which graffiti artists employ. You can see these on our graffiti wall in Class 4 and in this gallery:

Class 4 have been working hard in literacy and with  the amazing opera and musical directors from The Theatre Royal Norwich to produce their own version of the opera Hansel and Gretel.

Click to visit our Opera Page

We wanted to put a real alternative twist on the original fairy story/traditional tale, and our ideas have really given the story into a new modern dimension, whilst still maintaining the theme of the original.

We will be working hard for next next five weeks with our theatre professionals to put on a fantastic show at the Theatre Royal on Sunday 10th November.  Before that, we will all be visiting the theatre first for a backstage tour, then to watch the Glyndebourne Opera version of Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck.

'The World Was Waiting' ...

and you didn't let them down !

You were FANTASTIC !!!

On Thursday July 18th, Class 4 gave the performance of their lives, wowing the audience with their professional, engaging and poignant performance of The Hunger Game. Thankyou so much for your hard work, dedication and limitless enthusiasm - it was a night not to be forgotten.

A Word about the Play

Our primary school version is based on the book by Susanne Collins, but will explore the some of the ideas and characters in the book,  and not necessarily all the events and themes.  Some children in class 4 have previously read the book, and even more have seen the film,  however we will not be reading the book or watching any of the film, and so will create our own unique twist on the story.
