What a wonderful start to year 6, 2017-2018!
During these last two weeks Doves & Bullfinches have been exploring Oracy, Roald Dahl, place value, Wild and testing, testing, testing!
Our first big focus was Wild by Emily Hughes. Wild is a wonderful little girl who lives in the WILD and heaven help anyone who says she has to live somewhere. She doesn’t want to live in a house, the animals in that house are strange and don’t play like she does, she learnt to play with foxes and eat like the bears and those strange animals who walk on two legs don’t eat like she does.
The children loved WILD and enjoyed exploring who she was and her crazy hair and feisty personality, one of the things they loved the most was making their own versions of Wild. They explored the outside for leaves, flowers and branches so she could look as wild as possible! It was a lot of fun to use as many media platforms as possible to create our ‘Wild’.
Another thing the year 6 have enjoyed is exploring the new Media Merge room, they’ve loved having a relaxing place to sit and read, with friends or alone. It’s also been a great place for the children to do research and discover new ways to extend their learning.
We had the pleasure of celebrating Roald Dahl day and what fun it was. We explored new candy and chocolate, held taste, look, feel tests and wrote some lovely sentences about our new and interesting sweets. We tested ourselves to see if we could write in the style of Roald Dahl and describe one of the characters in less than 100 words, it’s not as easy as it sounds!
Overall it’s been a wonderful start to the year and if this is any indication of what is to come, Miss Carr and Miss O’Connor can’t wait!
