London Trip 2018
Year 6 took on the big city on Wednesday, 21st November, and had an amazing time! Although the coach trip there was long and arduous, they were so resilient and respectful. We had a whirl wind tour around The Natural History Museum, and then ate lunch on the coach as we headed to the Lyceum Theatre for an afternoon performance of The Lion King. The show was magnificent, and the children were enamoured with the songs, acting and costumes. It was a brilliant day and the children were amazing representatives of Reydon Primary School. Well done, Year Six!
Rationing in World War Two
Today the children took a very hands on approach to learning about rationing with a rationing game. We were all given different coupons and items, and we had to trade with each other in order to complete a task. The children learnt about the struggles to get an item you need, and about how the Black Market worked. They were brilliant and really rose to some difficult tasks, so well done to everyone!
Pumpkin Pie Tasting
Year 6 were really excited to try pumpkin pie for the first time to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving around Harvest. We compared pumpkin pie to foods we had eaten before, and looked at the differences and similarities between Canadian Thanksgiving and our Harvest Festival.
The Sweetness of Classification
In Science we are exploring the classification of living things, and one of our main focuses is how to separate things into groups, and creating classification keys. Today we worked in groups to classify sweets based on their appearance and ingredients, before moving on to classify living things. The children showed all of the Reydon Rs and worked amazingly well. I am so proud of them!
Today in Maths we were looking at place value, which we found quite easy at first. We soon realised the questions got a lot harder, and many of us began to work together to help each other and explain the reasoning behind our answers. Great mastery work today, Year Six! I am proud of you taking control of your own learning.
