Theseus and the Minotaur Talking Textiles

This half term in Art we have been creating Talking Textiles linked to our Ancient Greek topic. We have each designed and made a textile to show part of the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, which will all be sewn together to tell the whole story. Our textiles are going to be shared with the Year 1 children to help them to learn the story too.

Our Reading Area

Our reading area in Year 6 is titled ‘Where Will Your Reading Take You?’ because we know that if you ‘get lost’ in a good book, reading can take you anywhere! We have a wide variety of texts in our reading area including fiction, non-fiction, newspapers and poetry. We also have book recommendations to look at and activities to carry out.

National Poetry Day

Today was National Poetry Day and to celebrate every class has learnt a poem to perform to each other. In Mrs Calland’s group we performed The Lion and Albert by Marriott Edgar. This was a really funny poem about Albert getting eaten by a lion at Blackpool Zoo! Each person in the group had a line to say or a part to perform.

Magic Maths

In maths we use our maths area to work on skills we have been using in our lessons. We have lots of number games to work on with our friends and can use the whiteboard to show our working out. There are lots of things on the walls to help us and we can even do the challenges that are there too! What do you like about our maths area?
