Isle of Wight

Lots of memories made.

We’re here,

After a boiling journey down to Portsmouth, a trip up the Spinnaker tower, and a very steady ferry ride, we have arrived. The children are all settled and ‘sleeping’ in their rooms, ready for another busy day tomorrow finding fossils and grooming donkeys 😁⛴🗼

Chinese papercutting

This half term, our Chinese cultural topic is papercutting. Our Year 6s learned the origin of Chinese papercutting and how to cut basic patterns.

In China, people do papercutting not only to decorate their houses, but also for luck. Hope it brings good luck to Year 6s next half term for their SATs.

Our little visitors!

Over the last two weeks we have had some special visitors in school, they arrived as eggs and have already grown so much. Miss Barlow couldn’t resist smuggling them into our classroom for some sneaky cuddles.

Chinese New Year!

To enhance our Chinese culture lessons and mark the Chinese New Year we have enjoyed some workshops today including: cookery, calligraphy and origami! Year 6 all got involved and were very sensible throughout. ⭐️

Electricity! ⚡️

Our new topic in Science this term is electricity. We will be using scientific symbols for the components we use this term and we really enjoyed our first lesson getting to grips with the equipment and learning how to be safe with electric.

Tai Chi

Year Six had some special visitors today to teach us the art of Tai Chi as part of our Mandarin culture sessions.

Biographies

For the next two weeks Year Six will be building up towards writing their own biographies on Anne Frank. To get us started we explored the structure of a biography by piecing together the features from a WAGOLL!
