Mrs Bah and year 6 are working to tidy and organize the pond area outside the Key Stage 2 building. They are having to be really careful when they are working to avoid the tiny little frogs that have emerged from the pond. The area should eventually look really attractive with flowering plants to attract the bees, a rockery and a paved area near the benches for relaxing.
Huge thanks to Mrs Bah who is directing operations!
The Year 6 children attended a service at Leeds Minster last week. The theme of the service was thinking about moving on to High School and dealing with our worries and concerns. The children enjoyed the service and also enjoyed the ice cream on the way back to school!
We have continued our drama work from Macbeth this week. There are some extremely accomplished actors in the class and we look forward to seeing the auditions next week to see who will be starring in our production!
We continue our studies into the Shakespeare Macbeth. This is inspiring some brilliant writing from Year 6. Please find below Yusuf’s description of what he thinks Lady Macbeth would look like:
Her small, round face is full of malice, her eyes cold and dark without any sign of warmth. The rings on her fingers make her hand movements jerky and twitchy. There’s always a malevolent smile on her face, as though she was ready to strangle you! Her robes are black and grey, never any bright colour, as if she’s never seen the light of day. Nobody enjoys the prospect of seeing her. She seems barely alive, kept living because of the evil and spirits inside her.
Year 6 planted some runner beans this week, interestingly called “yard long” beans. We are going to have our own bean plants and see if they really do grow to a “yard long” and whose is the longest before the children have to leave our school to go to high school.
Thank you to John who took this fun picture of the Year 6 children, shortly after they completed their last SAT paper. All worked really hard and deserved this moment in the sun spelling out the initials of our school (some did complain a little about lying on the playground though).
Year 6 have proved this week that they really are ACE!
