Today was our annual Ravensbury bake off. Well done to all the children who took part. I was very impressed with the effort you all put in (both adults and pupils). 

I spend the morning break sampling them all and some were delicious! Miss Gallery had to come and assist me with my decision as it was difficult to choose the first, second and third places. 

Congratulations to the three winners and well done once more to all the others for entering.

Air Raid Drill

Date: 14th Sep 2022 @ 11:51am

Yesterday the children had to squash themselves under the tables and pretent we were having an air raid drill. They thought it was very exciting and enjoyed chatting with their friends and making up games to keep themselves occupied. I'm sure if they had to stay there all night, like they had to during World War 2, then they would soon get very fed up and bored. 

Learning the Lindy Hop Dance

Date: 14th Sep 2022 @ 11:33am

This week we launched our new topic about life during The Second World War. We started with a dance, where the children all had to learn an old fashioned dance called the 'Lindy Hop'. They did very well and had a chance to practise. As you can see from the photographs below, they all had a great time.

A Peaceful protest for Climate Change

Date: 17th May 2022 @ 2:59pm

Year 6 took part in a peaceful protest to raise awareness of Global Warming and Climate Change. They made amazing banners to use when marching around the school grounds. They attracted a lot of attention because they made the decision to hold their protest at the same time as the school cake sale. This had a big impact as there were a lot of people around. We are so proud of the children in both year 6 classes for showing so much passion and dedication to 'making a change' for the better. 

Year 6 Connected Curriculum Launch-Traffic Survey

Date: 24th Mar 2022 @ 12:56pm

Year 6 have been conducting a traffic survey to find out the volume of traffic passing the school during the school day. We will be using this information to help us to monitor the air pollution in the area and explore ways to reduce the amount of traffic. This links to our topic on Climate Change and the children will be exploring ways in which they can help to reduce Global Warming and make a difference. 

Cross Curricular Orienteering Lesson

Date: 7th Mar 2022 @ 5:12pm

On Friday we had our first PE orienteering lesson. We had so much fun working in teams to create 'Silly Faces'. The objective was to work in teams using the equipment given to create the silly face card accurately using the information on the map. The children had such fun tranferring the information from the diagram into reality using the equipment. They worked brilliantly in teams and were very energetic. I know they cannot wait until the next lesson to take on another new challenge. Well done 6JT!

World Book Day 2022

Date: 3rd Mar 2022 @ 4:46pm

Today we had enjoyed World Book Day! We had lots of fun dressing up as our favourite book characters and taking part in a parade around the playground. We read our class book 'Holes' and met the Warden today. We also launced our class author- Onjali q Rauf and researched facts about her and looked at some of the books she has written. We had an opportunity to link to a live zoom with with Z-arts and Emma Jackson from the 'Story Drawing Club and explore ways to use our new free book. We ended the day with a look at the Masked Reader clips and guess who the teachers were. Everyone got a book token to take home too. 

Capacity in Maths

Date: 11th Feb 2022 @ 4:15pm

In maths today, we were measuring capacity using a variety of measuring jugs and cylinders. We used skills such as estimating, accurate measuring and reasoning. It was great fun and really helped us when we came to complete our independent work of converting millilitres to litres and litres to millilitres and solving word problems involving capacity. 


Art-Cherry Blossom

Date: 10th Feb 2022 @ 4:24pm

Today we have been drawing Cherry Blossom in our art sketch books. Our inspiration came from our reading book 'Kensuke's Kingdom'.  The character Kensuke painted a Cherry Blossom tree on a shell he found on the beach. The children really enjoyed creating their pictures and produced some lovely work.
