We've had a very busy start to the Spring Term in 6SS and we've even been showing off our creative side in Art. We have been looking at different artists like Monet and Van Gogh and the techniques they use in their work. This includes studying how they draw and adapt backgrounds and foregrounds in their landscape painting. Have a look at some of the first sketches of landscapes that 6SS drew in the style of these artists!
7th January 2016
Today we all worked on solving different types of problems and puzzles. The children really enjoyed working with their peers and solving their challenges.

Please don't forget we will be holding our Christmas Fayre on:
Friday 11th December from 1.30pm.
You can collect your children from the classroom at 1.30pm and take them to the fayre. Any children that are
not collected will not be able to attend the fayre and will stay in their classes.
There will be a 50p charge for adults on entrance.
We look forward to seeing you all and taking part on the many stalls and games plus this year we are even having a Candy Floss Machine!!!!!

Children In Need

Thank you all for your kind donations!
This week we have been looking at the poem called 'I want to know' by John Drinkwater. We practised reciting each verse and then performed it in front of the class.
On Friday 18th September children looked at various safety aspects that they experience on a daily basis.
They had the opportunity to explore the use of QR readers on the iPads in order to complete a treasure hunt based on how to stay safe online.
We would like to welcome children and parents from 6SS to our class page!
We will regularly update this page with work and activities that have been completed in class or any information that needs to be shared with you.
Mrs Shan and Mrs Powell are looking forward to the year ahead!
