Reading-The Queens Nose

In reading today the authors(my reading group) were writing about the Queens nose. Mr. Clark put two Questions on the board and we had two write a paraghraph answring the questions in our language jotter. The two questions were Do you think Harmony is selfish and Do you think it was a satisfactory ending. . We had to put lots of detail in our paraghraph and I wrote two pages. Then we had to stick our censory image into our jotter. We had been working on the censory image for a while. We used A4 paper and I done mine like a tree.  I used three pens for beggining, middle and end. It was really fun reading The Queens Nose and i enjoyed doing reading today.

Making Victorian Bread

As part of our Interdisciplinary topic on The Victorians, P6B made traditional Victorian bread.  We started the morning using our maths skills to measure and weigh the ingredients, then using the clock we timed how long each part of the process would take. We also used our language skills to write about our experience of making bread in the traditional way.

The class had a fantastic time baking but now realise the hard work that went into making just one loaf of bread, I doubt any of the boys or girls would like to be a Victorian kitchen maid and get up at 4am to start cooking.  please look at our pictures below and leave some comments for the class.

The Queen’s Nose Debate

The children in Bay 19’s Authors reading group have been reading the Queen’s Nose by Dick King-Smith.  They have been debating the suggestion that the main character,  Harmony, acts selfishly throughout the book.  They looked for quotes and references to support their opinion.  They used the class dictaphone to record their excellent debate.

Red Nose Day!

Today was Red Nose Day. All the pupils had to pay a pound to dress down and have crazy hair. Primary 7’s were coming round the classes with cookies for 35p each. The cookies had white sugar icing with raisins for eyes, a cherry for the nose and melted chocolate for the mouth! We did a sponsored shout out in which we shouted RED NOSE DAY, COMIC RELIEF, HELP and HAVE FUN. Although it was a special event we still had to do our normal work. At the assembly evryone learned a new song and we did the Hokey Cokey! At the end of the day it was Golden Time. Everyone was sent to their activities including paper crafts, arts and crafts, mask making, baking, outdoor games, dancing, pampering, own games, infant helpers and much,much more.

Nursery p6

Every Friday primary 6s are allowed to go to the nursery to play with the children in morning and afternoons.  Two children get to go in the morning and two get to go in the afternoon its really great fun. The staff really like our help.

On a Friday morning they decide who is star of the week . They have a little flower shop that they pretend  that they sell flowers to people. There is a little quiet  corner were  they can just relax, they can also read books. There is also the sand pit that three people can play with it at a time. The staff are very kind and they make sure everything is okay.

Dictaphone Day!
