Year 6 Aspire Trip

Yesterday, our Year 6’s went to a Aspire( a place to practice and enjoy gymnastics). During the day, these students learned to do multiple different tricks and use a variety of different equipment while also having an abundance of fun. The children also learned how to stay safe when do these fun tricks. Everybody had the time of their lives and would have loved to stay longer if they could. Everybody wishes they could go again some day.

Wilberforce House Sports Day

Although Blues didn’t win on sports day we had a superb time throughout the day. We were the best we could be and really tried hard in all events! We enjoyed cheering our teammates on in their races and had a fantastic team spirit!

Story Mapping

In Year 5’s English lesson, this morning, we started our brand new unit ‘The Lighthouse’. Within our new unit, we began to piece the story together by creating our own Story Map. Our creations focused on the characters, plot, opening, build up, dilemma, resolution and ending. We had so much fun putting our knowledge into practice!

Year 6 Production

In Year 6, the children have been working very hard on their production, The Amazing Adventures Of Super-Stan. They love this piece and have been putting a lot of effort into acting out their lines, choreographing dances to the different songs and making sure they are being the best they can be. Some of the children have even been practising in their playtimes and lunchtimes to make sure they know most or maybe all of their lines off by heart and don’t need to worry about saying something wrong in rehearsals. They have been amazing with handling the needed props at the right time and loved helping to make them. Everyone who wanted a specific role auditioned for the role they wanted and was given a role they suited best which they were very happy about. The production will be a very funny, comical show which has many jokes in. The children can’t wait to show this to the parents and to the school.

NSPCC – Speak Out, Stay Safe

Year 5 have been learning about different types of abuse and what we can do if we are victims of abuse. We learned that abuse is never the child’s fault, who we can talk to if we are a victim of abuse and how to contact Childline. We even learned the Childline number (0800 1111) off by heart.

The Jabberwocky

This week, Year 5 have started their English poetry unity on The Jabberwocky.

On Monday, we read the poem ‘The Jabberwocky’, which is a nonsense poem. We recapped poetic devices, such as rhyme, similes, metaphors, personification, imagery and alliteration. Then, we learned about a new poetic convention called portmanteau, which is were sounds from two words are blended together to form a new word. We identifies portmanteau words in The Jabberwocky poem and finally created our own portmanteau words.

 

On Wednesday, we reread the poem ‘The Jabberwocky’ which is a nonsense poem. In pairs, we then tried to decode the portmanteau and nonsense words so we could understand the storyline of the poem.

Prison Me? No way!

Year 5/6 have had an amazing day with the staff of Prison Me? No Way! The children had the experience of encountering a real life prison cell and how inmates spend their day in prison. We learnt a lot of brilliant information!

Mental Health Awareness Week

As part of Mental Health Week, Year 5 discussed loneliness and what we can do if we are ever feeling lonely. We came up with some fantastic ideas to combat loneliness.
