Sistema Concert. Saturday 9th July

Well done to our Sistema orchestra who braved torrential rain to rehearse and perform with children from Lakenham, Norwich Primary Academy and Catton Grove on Satuday. They rehearsed from 10 – 12pm and then the concert was from 1 – 2.30pm. There was fantastic support from our parents.  Most of the children had not picked up an instrument before September last year, let alone played in an orchestra! 10 months later and they are confidently performing in front of family, friends and strangers!  Well done to everyone involved.  Sistema has now finished for this academic year so we look forward to dusting off the instruments in September and welcoming new children from Year 3!

A big thank you to the parents and families who ferried, transported and supported with great joy and enthusiasm.

Thursday 30th June

Thursday 30th June was our first ever Romance Event.  Children spent the afternoon with their new teachers and took part in workshops based around the REAL science project themes for September. The aims were simple:  to excite the children about science and capture their ideas, thoughts, questions so that these could be used by their teachers when they meet this week to plan the projects.  The Year 3 team went down to Nelson to work with the Year 2’s who will be joining us in September.  Thanks to staff for their hard work and imagination in planning the sessions and to the children for their engagement and excitement as they explore and discovered.

Our activity day!

Today we had an activity day with Mrs Vallis and Mrs May. We were all split into four teams. My team included Tyrese, Kiki, Molly, Connor, Nouf, and Sienna. The winners of the day were the team with the most points. For each activity we started with 20 points; we could lose and gain some. You could gain points by showing our Wensum values!

This is what we got up to:

First of all, my group made a healthy eating poster – it was really fun to do. I made some fruit and vegetables to stick on the poster.

Next, we did cooking. It was so enjoyable. We made cornflake chocolate cakes they had marshmallows and raisins on top.

After that, we practised our maths skills on Sumdog. I played creeper mostly and I answered 100 questions – IN ONE GAME!

Finally, we designed a game that years below can play on the playground. We made a mini game which has loads of little games applied into one.

My favourite activity was making the healthy poster. We designed an excellent poster, which I was really proud of.

I think most of my group worked well as a team and contributed well. Also we didn’t lose too many points.

 

17th June – Olympic Presentations

As part of our maths work we have been learning how to budget and then creating a presentation to share our work with the rest of our class.

We had to plan an Olympic event and then share it with others.

We then presented it to some of Drake class.

Year 6 Courtroom!

Year 6 were pleased to welcome two magistrates this morning and role-play a real life court room scenario. We all learnt a lot about how a court works, who is involved and decisions that need to me made.
