Y6 Election: The Final Result

The results are in; the ballot papers have been counted and the final results are in:

 

And the winning party is… Plan A!

Looks like Blaze will be their official opposition.

It is, however, a Hung Parliament (seems to be a trend here!).

Will Plan A form a coalition with one of the other parties to gain a majority Government?

Question Time – The Leaders’ Debate.

This afternoon Miss Down’s Class held a fantastic Leader’s Debate. Each party leader had an opportunity to put forward their party’s pledges and challenge the other leaders’ ideas.

A wide range of complex issues were discussed, in great detail with pupils demonstrating their mature, well-thought-out understanding.

Here were some of the fantastic quotes:

‘If you vote Transform – Britain will stand safely’

Defence ties in with policing’

We want to work towards create a model world’

Discrimination is a massive subject’

‘We want all young people to get on the right track for life’

‘We are different from all the other parties’

‘We think everyone should get a chance’

‘We are relying on the public’

‘Changing each day in the present and every day in the future’

Year 3NP angles

In Maths recently, we were learning about angles. We met the Angle family members and learnt about their likes (e.g. Mrs Angle loves squares because she’s a right angle and squares have 4 right angles).

We looked around the classroom and outside to find objects which had 90 degree angles.

Year 3NP on the hunt for lines

In Maths a few weeks ago, we went outside to hunt around the school for examples of lines. We were searching for parallel, horizontal, vertical and perpendicular.

One group noticed really quickly that our football goal posts gave us all 4 types of line.

Renaissance Art

In our Art lesson today, we looked at a number of pieces of Italian renaissance art; including Michelangelo’s famous frescoes. The children created a sketch in the Renaissance style. However, to give the children the chance to experience how it was commonly believed Michelangelo worked, they completed these upside down!

They all agreed that it was very challenging!

Poetry Performances in Miss Down's Class

On Thursday afternoon, the children in Miss Down’s class enjoyed taking part in a Poetry Café.  The focus of the session was on speaking and listening skills. Each pupil had to learn a poem (for homework) and perform it with expression and confidence. This followed on from our work on poetry in guided reading.

While the performances were happening, the  very attentive and encouraging audience enjoyed croissants and hot chocolate.

The performances were fantastic – well done Y6!

Power For Good Anti-bullying morning in Miss Partridge's class

In Miss Partridge’s Year 3 class this morning, the children have been off timetable. Instead of our usual English, Maths and Reading lessons, we have been focusing on an important issue: anti-bullying.

This week is anti-bullying week and the theme for this year is ‘Power For Good’. We have been talking about how to be a good friend to others because doing good deeds for others makes us feel good too.

We read a story all about bucket-fillers – people who say and do kind things to others, which makes them feel happy and special and loved.

We worked really hard to complete lots of different activities, such as: baking cakes to give to family members; making kindness flowers; writing postcards to adults in school to say thank you; colouring buckets with different ways of helping others and handing out biscuits to staff to give them a treat!

Year 3NP Treasure Hunt!

On Friday afternoon, we were sent out on to the playground and field for a treasure hunt.

What was our treasure? It was anything we wanted it to be! Some of us found interesting leaves. Some found little pebbles and stones. Others found sticks. And one person even found a polar bear (a toy one of course!).

All of this was to help us with our elicitation task for our new block. We have no idea what our next writing block will be about but it must involve some kind of adventure. Watch this space…
