Friday 13th October

This week was largely about separation: using sieves, filter paper, magnets and evaporation to separate the ingredients from a sample of witches' brew! We also planned our stories based on Macbeth and George's Marvellous Medicine - I'm looking forward to reading them! Corey's performance in Science this week earned him Star of the Week...well done!

Friday 6th October

We went all scientific this week, donned our goggles, picked up our tongs, and used our own homemade Bunsen Burners in order to find out about reversible changes. Kinsey has really shone since she has come back from the six-week break, and deserves the Star of the Week award!

Friday 29th September

We all went to Leicester this week to visit a variety of religious places of worship. A Sikh gurdwara, Hindu temple, Anglican Catholic church and a mosque were explored, and we also had a talk from a Buddhist! An excellent day, and well done to Sophie and Lillie, who pleased Mrs Burton with their levels of knowledge! Also a big 'Well done!' to Year 5, who all passed their Grade 2 Bikeability this week. Some incredibly good rhyming poetry was produced about earthquakes-Ellie and Giverny, in particular, produced stunning examples with great vocab as well as quality rhythm and rhyme. The homework so far this year has been fantastic, and Sophie produced one of the best poems I've seen-more than good enough to get her the Star of the Week award! Well done, Sophie!

Friday 22nd September

Owls class this week have been writing a free-verse poem about a volcano-I have never been so impressed! We even put them together in an anthology, and put them on display for all to see! We have also done exceptionally well in Maths, and are on track for the whole class being confident in all four operations...wow! Star of the Week was a hard-fought contest this week, with so many excellent performances, but Leo's awesome teaching skills got him the award. Well done!

Friday 15th September

Continuing on with our topic, we've been going very figurative this week: personification, similes and metaphors have been flying around the room like verbal darts...they were a nightmare to begin with for some, but by the end of the week we are poetic ninjas-figuratively speaking! The boys in Year Six continue their impressive form in the classroom, and Declan's attitude this week earns him the Star of the Week award. Well done!

Friday 8th September

Happy new year! It's great to see the new faces in Owls Class-already it looks like we've hit the ground running as we begin working hard on our Natural World Poetry topic. We've done some fantastic research on the make-up of the planet, and how volcanoes are formed-we even created our own tectonic plates and Ring of Fire! The first Star of the Week award goes to Radley-he's been keen to embrace his Year Six status, and has put in huge amounts of effort into everything this week. Well done!
