We have really enjoyed taking part in History Day today. We learned all about the Victorians and presented our work in a mood board. We used ICT to find out different things and used out technical skills to enhance the design of our mood board. We also looked at the work of William Morris and designed our own repeating pattern and printed it. We also loved dressing up - have a look at some of our costumes!

We have been really busy in year six this week - practising for our end of year production as well as having Lynda West-Mullen visit to each us about SRE. We have also visited our new secondary schools as part of transition day. We cannot believe there is only two more weeks after this one at Whitehouse Common School and are making sure that we make the most of every minute in our last few weeks together. It is time for a big change in our lives but we really feel ready for our new schools.

On Monday we were lucky enough to travel to Liverpool for the day to visit the Maritime Museum and find out more about the Titanic. We left really early in the morning and travelled up, arriving at the Albert Docks at 10.30am. We went into a Titanic workshop and learned lots of interesting facts as well as being able to investigate information about the Titanic ourselves in the museum. It was great fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.

This week we have had 'My Money Week' in which we have been learning about how to manage our money. We looked at the stock market and how investing can not only make money, but can also lose money. We also set up our own business using a pretend loan from the bank! We had to be very carefuly with what we bought to begin with so that we did not become bankrupt!
We have also been continuing to work really har don our writing - producing work linked to 'The Black Book of Secrets'. We have written amazing setting descriptions and very detailled recounts based on poor Ludlow's horrific experiences. Our teachers are really proud of the writing we have produced.

Year six have really enjoyed Healthy Lifestyles week this week. It began with a really enjoyable and informative trip to Safeside where we learned about how to stay safe in all sorts of different situations. We even had the opportunity to make a 999 emergency call! We have also enjoyed taking part in a special tennis lesson, writing linked to being healthy and listening to a local young gymnast, Hamish Carter. It has been a really super week!

Today in Guided Reading we were focusing on the text 'The Ghost Behind the Wall' written by Melvin Burgess. We looked at the atmosphere and tension that was created in extract one and how the author has done this. We then compared it to the second extract and discussed how it was very different. We then based our writing on the text, ensuring that we included tension in our own story.
We are all still continuing to work incredibly hard in the final week before our SATs tests and are very focused. Well done!

We have been having some Easter fun in school this week. Yesterday we went on an Easter Egg Hunt - there were 60 eggs hidden around the school grounds and we each had to find one for a prize. Bonus prizes were given for finding the golden egg! We also had an egg decorating competition. Look at some of our designs - they were all absolutely amazing! Can you spot the two winning entries?

In Miss Maltby's group we have been learning about ratio and proportion using practical equipment. This week we used some skittles for a yummy and engaging maths lesson! We talked about the ratio and proportion of colours and about how the ratios can be reduced down. We looked at how proportion related to fractions and solved different problems using the skittles. It was great fun!
