It's great to be back after a week off to recharge our battteries! Everyone has seemed really happy to be back at school this week. As the weather has been mostly dry we have been able to have some fun at breaktimes playing a new game introduced to us all by Jaden. We also completed our next Commando Joe Mission which involved building shelters out on the playground. This linked closely to our history and DT work. We have displayed many great examples of creativity and teamwork this week, and supported each other both in lessons and during our social time.

This week Shakespeare class have been busy researching the different air-raid shelters used during WWII. They designed their own Anderson shelters and 'Dig for Victory' gardens. They used a range of materials and were extremely creative with their designs - take a look at some of their finished shelters.

Steve, a practising Buddhist, visited Shakespeare Class today. Not only did he explain many of the Buddhist values and beliefs, but he also led a meditation session. We all found this very calming and relaxing.

"When I was actually meditating, I found it very easy to just chill out." - Jenson

"Today, we met Steve and he taught us how to meditate. I almost fell asleep, because it made me feel so calm inside." - Hebe

This week Y6 had great fun during their science lesson. they were tested different ways to prove that light travels in straight lines. Mr butler was extremely impressed with their ability to use scientific vocabulary to explain their findings.

Year 6 also impressed Mr Butler and Mrs Smith this week showing excellent communication skills when working on our new Talk for Writing topic. We are looking at information texts and the features that they include to enable us to be able to write our own. Mr Butler fooled many of us (including Mrs Smith) with some photographs and news reports of dragons out on the rampage! Today we worked enthusiastically on our Cold Writes, about one of the dragons from Harry Potter - next week we will work on our new targets to improve our writing further.
