In our reading lesson today, we read about Gunnar (the protagonist of Viking Boy) and an interaction he had with a mysterious stranger. What began as a short response piece in perspective as Gunnar, turned into a full-on writing lesson as we couldn't stop writing! We hope you enjoy some of the fantastic work that came out of it.

Today we continued our gymnastic work, adding hoops to our routines. We needed to include a jump, balance and roll with elements of unison and cannon. We came up with some really creative ideas and next week will be working on polishing and refining what we came up with.

We were very lucky to have a visitor help us with our science learning today. Dr Billy Senington (Miss Senington's brother) helped us to use heart rate monitors to explore how exercise affects our heart rate. Billy was very impressed with how much the children already knew about the heart and blood as well as how curious and confident they were. What a fantastic afternoon!

We had our first introduction to long division, which always takes a great deal of time and resilience to master, but we showed real determination and are getting there much quicker than expected!

What a proud day! Year 6 welcomed our new reception class to the school in style. They spoke confidently, sang beautifully and looked after their buddies so very well - a wonderful end to the week.

Today during our Power Hour PE session, we were working on improving our passing and dribbling skills.
Here are are some of the things we said about our learning:
"It's fun - it doesn't matter who wins."
"Making small passes helps us to control the ball better."
"It was good fun and really good exercise."

Following on from last week's LORIC learning, today we learnt how important it is to listen to others if you want to make a great leader. We were tasked with following various seemingly simple instructions with a piece of string which became much more challenging when we weren't allowed to look at what we were doing!
Thursday 5th September
We made a great start to the year exploring our LORIC topic: leadership. We had to work with our groups and devise a plan to retrieve all the cups of water, one at a time, with one hand, without any spillages! We had lots of different ideas and not only displayed our leadership qualities but an awful lot of patience too!
