Year 6 – 01/12/17

Our English this week has been based on the short film ‘Francis’. The creepy story line depicts the final hours of teenage Francis Brandywine as she mysteriously vanishes during the night. The children have been busy speculating on the cause of her disappearance. Today, we hot-seated certain individuals who might be able to add insight into the suspicious event. We heard from a witness to the event, Mr Guerin. Other information was given by Detective Inspector Baffa who has been assigned to the investigation, local expert Mr White and  Francis’ parents, Mr and Mrs Brandywine. Next week, I look forward to reading the newspaper articles that they will be publishing about this curious incident.

In recognition of National Tree Week, the children investigated what trees we have in the school grounds by taking leaf samples from outside and then matching them with tree identification cards back in the classroom. We also thought about why holly and ivy were about the only plants not to have dropped any of their leaves and we examined the different kinds of bark and leaf structures.IMG_0393 IMG_0395 IMG_0396 IMG_0397 IMG_0399 IMG_0400 IMG_0401 IMG_0405 IMG_0407

On Thursday afternoon, we were treated to a concert showcasing the musical talent we have in Year 5 and 6. I was very  impressed with not just the standard of playing and singing, but also the confidence with which you performed in front of an audience.

There is no home learning this week, as the emphasis needs to be on learning the words for the songs in our Advent Service next Friday. The words  can be found here.
