International Children’s Games

Recently our class has been learning about the International children’s games. We had to do posters in I.C.T about the games. We found out that over 1,500 competitors from over the world aged 12-15 will be taking part. The games will include discus, javelin, racing, long jump and many more.

It has been fun  learning about the international games and I hope that everyone taking part has fun and does well.

Here is the finished poster

Poem

I have written a poem and I want to share it with you.

Friends  by Shannon Geoghegan
Friends will never let you down,
You know they’ll always be around,
They see your life through thick and thin,
And even if you never win,
Friends will guide you through the dark ways,
And will always be with you through the bright ways,
You may fall out from time to time,
But you’ll be friends that I rhyme,
They know you like the back of their hand,
And will be with you all over the land.

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.
