What a fabulous afternoon! The Holiday Show was a huge success and everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you to everyone who came to watch the performances and enjoy the food and drink on offer, the children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their learning with you.

Today, we have taken part in a variety of Maths Day activities, including writing our own 'maths calculations' into well-know songs. The day ended with a Maths Factor quiz, which everyone took part in, with the winning group going up against winning groups from other classes.

Continuing with anti-bullying week activities, 6BR wrote and performed a short musical or dramatic piece to the rest of the class. The message in each performance was powerful. Take a look at one example below.

6BR have created a 'hand of friendship' wreath and completed a class jigsaw, demonstrating how different yet equal we all are. They both look fantastic and are proudly displayed in the classroom.

As part of Anti-Bullying Week, Judo Educain worked with year 6 children to help with personal safety. Following a discussion on bullying, children were given the opportunity to learn and try out (in a safe and controlled way) break away techniques to help them feel safer and more confident particularly during these darker, winter nights. The workshop was a fantastic experience and hopefully something the children will remember.
If you look closely, you may be able to spot some odd socks in support of everyone of us being different.

Year 6 have been visited today by the Fire Safety team to talk about safety in general and specifically this time of year. We have talked about how to protect ourselves if our clothes happened to catch fire (Stop, Drop & Roll). We also discussed safety around fireworks - did you know fireworks can get up to 2000 degrees and sparklers can reach 1200 degrees! It is imperative to take care and keep safe at this time of year!

Our current art topic is a local study, looking at photographers who are either from the local area or use it in their photography. Yesterday, 6BR set out as photographers, finding interesting features in and around school, putting their own stamp on it. Take a look at a small selection of the art work produced, we clearly have some budding photographers in this class.

This morning, year 6 were given the task of creating a short, silent piece of drama. In groups of 4, children acted out a scene in which some friends entered a haunted house, using a piece of music, their expressions and body language to tell the story. Each group performed brilliantly and showed off their fantastic acting skills.
