This term Year 6 have been very busy from day one! The children have been thinking about the exploits of the detective mouse, Hermelin, in their writing. The have written wonderful diary entries that cleverly shift verb tenses whilst showing how the little mouse’s feelings changed over the course of the story.
In maths, we have been exploring 2-d shapes and today they used string to measure circumference. We are looking to diving into this in more detail soon.
In line with our Catholic Social Teaching principle for this half term – Peace and Solidarity – the children created some wonderful watercolours depicting peaceful landscapes. Their skills with watercolour are improving and we hope that Mrs Barras will be sufficiently impressed to put some on display in the art frames on the upper and lower sites.
Finally, I thought I would include here a couple of pictures of our Christmas dinner from last term. We had such fun making our peppermint creams that I forgot to post them! However, let me take the opportunity now to thank all our Year 6 families for their generous gifts to all the staff.
We wish you all a restful weekend!
