In Year 6, we have had a very busy week back at school. We started the week of by looking at room 101,which is where you look at things people think should not exist. We have all done a retell on it, the examples we’ve looked at were written by other year 6 in different schools.

On Tuesday, we did a fun challenge called KNEX and we had to make our own bin lorries with some cool features like working doors and bin emptiers. The winners were Roxi and Rosie; they will now go onto the finals during school hours at Renishaw to compete against 50 other schools.

 All week we have been working on our Remembrance service, which will be on Monday 13th at 10.30am. We have made some thought provoking poems about war. We also made some hand wreaths with our reception buddies. All of the Year 6s have painted poppies for our silhouette.

For our extra PE session on Thursday, we had Mrs. Daly for line dancing where we danced to ‘Jingle Bell Rock’.
