THE BUILD-UP TO SATs

In Year 6,we have been revising topics so that we are ready for our SAT s. We have been working extremely hard.  SAT s is something that sounds difficult  but the teacher’s support makes it easy and fun.

Every Year 6 child knows that they can achieve their goal and pass their test with success. SAT s is something that you should look forward to and not be scared off.  Are you going to pass ?

We do  some 10-minute tests every week to help us improve and it helps a lot.

Q: How do you get straight A’s?
A: By using a ruler!

Things we get here easily. I hope you learn more about  Fairtrade.

Polar Explorers!

This week the whole school have become polar explorers for STEAM Week.

Miss Thompson and Miss Hopkins organised activities to help us learn about the Arctic and support the polar explorers in their expedition.

It has been a really successful week and a great end to this half term!

The children have enjoyed being polar explorers and it has given them lots of motivation for future work!

Here are some photos of what the whole school got up too!

Fish and Squid Art!!😎😜

On Thursday 8th February 2018,we were doing an art lesson based on fish and squid. We started  by practising to draw a dead fish. Then we did blind drawing;we had to draw without looking at the paper.We drew the different scales and contrasts. After that, we drew a fish on a A3 piece of paper then painted it. We used different shades.😜

Then,Miss Bentley put out on each table a dead squid.It was not very pleasant. We drew a squid and painted it with lovely shades of colour.It was very enjoyable for everyone.

These are some quotes :

(Shivani,Maya,Ruwayda, Ruby)They thought it smelt bad so did other people. Thanks to Shyann’s mint tissues it smelt better.😷

(Darsh) It was nice to draw and see real dead creatures 😨

(Ruby) It was so exciting because we actually got to see real marine life, instead of seeing it off of the board.Our class (Jet class) are the only class who have ever done it in Beavers.😜😜😜😜😜😜

(Tashin) The creatures were small and smelly 😷 but he enjoyed it.😀

(Shivani) I could not believe that miss Bentely actually picked up the squid and fish in her bare hands!!!!😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Labeeb,Nathan,Farzan)Farzan found it fun Labeeb had never saw a squid before and never seen them with pink dots Nathan said it looked really weird and that it was a funny experience.

(Preety,kim) Even though the fish smelt bad , we enjoyed it so much and we were blending colours together and was very likeable.

(Ruwayda,samid,Muhammed)When you use dark colours you use water to make it lighter. I found it disgustingly fun\enjoyable. So basically ,so basically . I found it really really really really interesting.We got to see underwater creatures.😨😜😜😜😜😜😜😠😠😠😠😀😀😀😱😱😍😍😝😝😇😇☺👍

(Maya,Nisrine) Found it entertaining because we got to see something in real life then looking on the board😝😝😝😇😷😨👍😜.  I found it amusing to look at the creatures because it is not what I usually see around me .😍😆😊😀😁😝😜😋😛😗

Thank you for reading from your year six bloggers

Something fishy in Jet Class

 

On Thursday 8th February 2018, we were doing an art lesson linked to our STEM week. We drew squid and fish, which penguins eat. In today’s lesson,we started with drawing a fish with a pen on an A4 piece of paper. We did some blind drawing when we had to not look at the paper but at the dead fish. We also did some continuous line drawing where you are not allowed to take the pen off the paper. We used watercolours to add a bit of colour. Did you know squid are a bit pink?

Samid said: “I loved drawing something real,’

Darsh said, ‘I used backwards-forwards drawing to draw accurately,”

Muhammed said, “I found it interesting because we had something real in front of us,”
