Autumn 2 – Week 4

Stars of the Week: Maia & Samuel

This week, we have been busy learning all about different time zones around the world. We looked at a world map which showed us all the lines of longitude and how the world is divided into many different time zones.

Did you know that when the bell rings at 8:45am, children in New York are still fast asleep as it’s 3:45am! And children in Hong Kong will soon be sitting down for dinner because it’s 4:45pm!

Autumn 2 – Week 2

Stars of the Week: Cecilia & Eayon

This week, we have been working hard on our figurative language in English lessons. We used The Last Bear to inspire our work and came up with some ambitious sentences.

The vast expanse of sea lapped at the shore, snatching a bottle and dragging it out into the unknown. – Canaan

The chilling wind slashed at her face, leaving her with red marks and gasping for breath. – Kyann

The fog stared menacingly, slowly creeping towards April… – Romeo

The mountains, who wore their crowns of ice, stood proudly in the distance and surveyed the land below. – Aden

The fog hung silently in the air around the mountains, like an invisible mantle resting on the shoulders of the sky. – Maia

This week, Class 6 have started our new text – The Last Bear. We have been writing in role as the main protagonist, April, who sets off to Bear Island. We have also been looking at figurative language and how this can enhance our descriptions and create imagery.

Autumn 1 Week 5

Stars of the Week: Tallulah & Fabian 

This week, we have been busy classifying the trees in the local area. We used identifying features – such as seeds, leaves and branches – to identify each tree and then created our own classification keys. We found sycamore, beech, cherry and London plane in the area.
