We have reached the end of yet another half term, and this week in Year 6 we have been busy writing, drawing, dancing, role playing and visiting a Hindu temple.
Their writing has involved designing a magical creature and writing a non-chronological report on it, full of examples of hyphenation, passive voice, multi-clausal sentences and multi-syllabic words. Their finished writing is fantastic, and they have accompanied it with drawings of their creatures, for which the focus has been shading. This will be compiled to produce our very own Y6’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You!
Today concluded our dance unit in PE, and the class put together and performed Charleston dances in groups. The dances were impressive – full of swivels, toe taps and straight arms. Good work!
As part of Computing Week, Y6 spent Monday afternoon participating in an e-safety workshop, where they got the opportunity to act out lots of difference scenarios linked to online gaming.
This week has also been Other Faiths Week, during which time we have been learning about Hinduism. It was amazing to go to BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (Neasden Temple) on Wednesday, where we were all awestruck by the beautifully intricate and ornate marble building. We were able to witness an Arti ceremony – the Hindu ceremony of light, which was a very special experience. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed to be taken at the temple.
We ended the half term by making the most of the sun and they spent Golden Time reading with their Learning Partners under the dappled light in the Reception outdoor area.
Have a lovely half term break 🙂
