Friday 25th October

A big well done to our 'Stars of the Week'. Green certificates for respect were the theme this week. We are very proud of our children, not just for their hard work and great attitudes, but for regularly demonstrating our whole school RRS ethos.

Bun Sale

A big well done to Lilia, Kitty, Isabelle, Sophie and Miranda in Y6S/W, who had a bun sale for charity. On a very cold morning, they set up a stall to sell a great array of homemade cakes to the Y6 children. They raised just over £90.00 and were keen to thank all of the Y6 children who supported them in our Y6 assembly.

Woodland Talismans.

In Forest Schools last week, Y6NL started making some Woodland Talismans. We had to get two sticks about the same length and then get some wool. You tied the wool around one stick, then joined the other one on in a cross shape (or like X factor). Then you were ready. You tied the wool over two sticks then under one and kept doing this until you wanted to change the colour. Then you tied the colours together and carried on until you were ready. Some of us finished them off in class. Here is a picture of the display we have in our classroom. They make it look nice and colourful.


In Y6NL, we have been learning how to multiply 2 digit numbers (or more) by 2 digit numbers. We have also been multiplying decimals by whole numbers and other decimals. We found out different methods. Some of them are: grid method, expanded method and short method. We did lots of practice and decided which method we liked the best. Here is some of our work.

Flashback stories.

We have also been busy this week writing, editing and publishing our Kindertransport Flashback stories. They were inspired by our visit to the National Holocaust Centre and tell the story of a Jewish person escaping from the dangers of Germany in WW2. We had to write a flashback paragraph about Kristallnacht, which was a night when lots of Jewish shops were smashed, synagogues were set on fire and people were arrested. Here are two stories for you to read.

Chinese Lanterns

This week in Y6S/W and Y6HN, we have been learning about the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival.The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated notably by the Chinese and Vietnamese people. It relates to Chuseok and Tsukimi. The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with a full moon at night, corresponding to mid-September to early October of the Gregorian calendar. It is also known as the Moon Festival. One of the most common ways to celebrate is by eating mooncakes – a dense, sweet pastry that’s baked or steamed and typically enjoyed with tea. We decorated and constructed our own traditional Chinese lanterns.


HN have also been working really hard on our Kristallnacht Flashback Stories. We have spent a lot of time editing them and making them the best they can be!

We really concentrated on our description to make sure the reader was hooked into our stories.

Here are some for you to read.
