Miss Prindible and Mrs. Coleman
On Tuesday, 17th May, Year 6 were lucky enough to have Matthew and Flora, who are part of the team working on the Jubilee Celebrations in Southwold, in to do a workshop surrounding The Tempest, which they will be studying next half-term.
Flora and Matthew were brilliant teachers, and the children produced an amazing scene, with everyone having an integral role from the sound to miming to actually speaking. The Year 6 pupils showed all the 5 Rs and were particularly brilliant risk-takers. We hope to see some of them on stage on 1st June for the Jubilee celebrations in Southwold!
Year 6 have been looking at Graffiti in Art, and have created some great artwork inspired by Banksy. They worked in groups to paint their backgrounds, choose an image and then scale it to their background. They are now working on their own graffiti tags, so that they can claim their work. Great relationship work, Year 6!
Exploring Ancient Egypt- Virtually!
On Monday, 10th January, Year 6 had a virtual visit from the British Museum to consolidate their learning from Year 5 about Ancient Egypt. The children assumed the role of myth busters, and investigated artefacts presented by the museum and dispelled rumours and myths about Ancient Egypt. The children had a great time, interacting well with the host and sharing their ideas. They were brilliant Reydon representatives. Well done, Year 6!
This half-term, we have been looking at warning tales, and we are using Pie Corbett's The Caravan for inspiration. The children worked collaboratively on a shared writing piece where they developed their own characters and storyline, and came up with all of the figurative language, while using the original story as a guideline for the structure. They did an amazing job showing great relationships and reflection, and have written a brilliant story! Great job, Year 6!
World War II- Evacuation
In History, we are studying WWII and the effects it had on relationships around the world and in the UK. We read four different stories written by evacuees, recounting their experiences. We then acted these experiences out, using freeze frames and challenging vocabulary to summarise each scene. Finally, we have used this drama to help us put ourselves in an evacuee's shoes, and are writing our own diary entries from the perspective of an evacuee. We are using such amazing vocabulary, and really demonstrating empathy, as well as all of our 5 Rs.
