In science this term Kite Class have been learning about electricity, they have learnt how electrical components are represented in diagrams. Using their current guided reading book, ‘The Explorer’, the children used their knowledge and skills to construct a ‘sensor’ circuit to detect if any dangerous wild animals enter the camp. Year 6 have also researched and created a booklet on Allessandro Volta,the Italian physicist who invented the electric battery.
This term year 6 have read the narrative poem ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes. They wrote letters in role to either the Highwayman or Bess and also wrote their own alternative ending to the poem. Kite class particularly enjoyed the final stanza where we find out that the ghosts of the Highwayman and Bess meet over and over again on winter nights.

In dance, Owl class has been learning the Haka. Inspired by watching clips of this performed at rugby matches, this week, the children have been creating their own Hakas. They look pretty scary to me!
In the run up to Christmas, Owl class turned their hand to baking. Pastry was rolled out and mince pies made, along with different shaped Christmas cookies. These were all enjoyed at the Christmas carol concert. The children also made individual Christmas cakes which they expertly decorated before taking home to (hopefully) share with their families.
