4 noble truths

This week, children in Lions class tackled assessments and I am so proud of how far they have come, they approached assessment week with a calm and methodic approach and this will really help them when they take on the actual assessments in May.

Y6 girls

Another fabulous week of learning in Lions this week! It has been really wonderful to see children plan and draft their ideas for their 'Suspense' stories this week and I am really looking forward to reading the finished stories. In Science, children began to analyse the 'gestation periods' of different mammals and next week will begin to look for scientific patterns in the data. In ICT children have started to add brand logos to their environmental posters and they look really super.

What an eventful week it has been! On Monday children quizzed some top athletes all about their experiences and journey in competitive swimming, they loved meeting coach Andy Sharp, Maisie Summers-Newton, Eliza Humphrey and Scarlett Humphrey. On Tuesday children had a great time at the church experiencing Harvest - it was lovely to see them making bird feeders and preparing infused oils. Lions class participated in the first assessment point of the year this week and they handled it brilliantly, this preparation supports the children to know what it feels like when they sit their SATs next year - so a huge well done! On Friday afternoon, GLK worked with Y6 girls to prepare for an up and coming football tournament and they played brilliantly, I am very much looking forward to seeing how they get on in October.

Saints

It has been an incredible start back this year because Lions class children have come back raring to go. They have already produced a high quality piece of writing in preparation for our new unit - Suspense. In Maths, children have started to explore 'Place Value - Numbers to 1000000 and in Science Lions class began to explore 'Life Cycles' specifically focussing on the relationship between lifespan and number of offspring of different animals and I am keen to see this research develop further. On Thursday, Freestyle Academy visited the school and the children had fun engaging in a Dodgeball taster session. Freestyle Academy are offering a range of afterschool clubs this year and letters have been sent home for Athletics, Dodgeball and Archery so if you are interested in booking a place you will need to return slips promptly. Finally, GLK have started working with the children, brushing up on their rugby skills ahead of rugby lessons with Northampton Saints who will be delivering lessons from next week. So much to look forward to for the year ahead and I know the children will have fun.

Children in Y5 and Y6 performed Jack and the Beanstalk to the children, parents and governors - they were superb and worked so hard to deliver a fun and engaging performance. Children in Lions had their last cricket lesson with Northants Cricket Coaching this week and have done a brilliant job this term, up-levelling their cricket skills. Children in Lions class also participated in discussions around puberty and changes, many children had quality questions to ask. A fantastic end to the year, well done everyone!

We have had a really busy week in Lions this week but the highlight of the week has to be the long awaited trip to the British Museum to enhance our knowledge of Ancient Greece. It was fabulous to explore the Parthenon frieze, ancient pots and everyday life in Ancient Greece. I have to mention what a pleasure it was to visit the museum with children from Lions and Panthers class, they were all so engaged with the artefacts on display and an absolute credit to Bozeat Primary school. The fact that they were still talking about it on the coach on the way back shows just how much they've enjoyed it.

Have a great Easter!

Children had a fabulous specialist led PSHE session where they were exploring 'decisions' and in Art children have begun to construct their Maya city landscape and it is looking fantastic. In Writing we have started to learn how to write a 'character flaw' and the children are focussing on Marisa Coulter for Phillip Pullman's Northern Lights. To top off a great week, Lions have experienced a number of Maya workshops and on Friday morning had a live Q&A with Dr Diane.

Children in Lions class have produced some fantastic Newspaper Reports this week and I am so proud of them all. They enjoyed planning their Mayan cities in DT for the clay city they will be constructing later this term. In RE children learned about charity (in Christianity) and specifically Christian Aid. In PSHE children learned about differences in people with a specific focus on why bullying might occur. We had an amazing Science lesson where children set up an experiment (over time) to see how different metals rust and how to prevent corrosion. The Northampton Saints visited and delivered a practical PE lesson in the classroom because it has been so rainy. Despite this, the children have coped brilliantly with the weather and many indoor breaks.

non reversible changes

Children in Lions have had a fabulous start back this term and they have really got stuck into preparing their Newspaper Reports - many children have chosen to write about the recent discovery of a secret Maya temple. In Science, Lions class have been considering various change processes and have already covered reversible and non-reversible changes like rusting and burning. We had a fabulous morning on Tuesday working with Northampton Saints on building character both on the field and in the classroom - I am looking forward to seeing their rugby skills develop over the next 4 weeks. We have also started reading an interesting new text called 'The Star' by Alasdair Grey. We have super term ahead of us!

This week Lions have learned about the 'Good Samaritan' in RE and how this relates to modern day life, they planned and performed their own ideas about what it means to be a 'good neighbour' which was excellent. In Science, they have started to learn about 'Forces' and in particular planned their own experiments to test the force of gravity. In Topic this week, children were taught about poverty in the Victorian era and found out how poverty in the world has not really changed that much using extracts from Oliver Twist (1837-1839) and Street Child (1993). They have now completed their Balanced Argument writing all about Corporal Punishment and will soon be moving on to a new unit of writing. In PE, children have been tackling Athletic skills with GLK and in REAL PE lessons practicing their sending and receiving skills. Year 6 are becoming much more confident with their Shakespeare rehearsals and noticeably when they perform the songs. It great to see children from Y6 taking part in cycling and archery competitions this week.

We have had a really enjoyable week in Lions this week with plenty to do. Children have begun to plan their own Bauhaus posters in Art and they have got really good ideas about how to use colour, shape and typography. On Tuesday, we benefitted from a cricket enrichment session where the children got to try out a range of different skills associated with cricket - hopefully lots of them will be keen now to sign up with their local cricket team to build on this experience. In our History work this week, children investigated what artefacts found in the Indus Valley might tell us about life as a farmer. Lions class has some excellent questions about how various tools might be used. In Science, children enjoyed testing the viscosity of different liquids and thought carefully about how they might be present their findings - it got pretty sticky! It was really great to see Lions class internalise their new model text for writing  - a diary entry. I am very much looking forward to getting into the vocabulary and comprehension of the text next week.

This week the children in Lions class have produced some beautiful pieces of writing all about birds, it was excellent to see them independently researching and taking down the facts. In History, children learned about the hairstyles and clothing of the Indus Valley people and this tied in nicely with their artwork where they sculpted full figurines of busts of the Indus Valley people. In writing, children have planned many of their ideas for writing a 'finding tale' and I very much look forward to seeing them executing their final pieces after half term. Children in Lions class are really getting into the story of Bilbo Baggins this term and particularly enjoyed his encounter with Gollum - this week they have been writing their own retrieval questions based on Chapter 5. In music, we focused on Ravel's Bolero and the children were able to coordinate some mime movements to accompany the music - they worked collaboratively and the final performance was very impressive. They also found out about the role of the conductor and how they might be useful to keep performers in time.

What a lovely start to the year. Already children have started to learn about where to plot the Indus civilisation on a timeline and equally what other things were happening in the world at this time. Children have started to explore the pattern of a 'persuasive advert' and next week will begin to plan their own. Children in Y6 also had their first swimming lesson this week and it was great to see everyone showing what they already know. This term children will learn how to play basketball and netball with GLK and it will be great to see them building on their communication skills as they work together in teams.

CLASS BIODOME

It has been amazing to see Y6 children working so hard this week to construct their biodomes. In the end, Carwyn came up with idea of creating a landscape (a little bit like the Eden Project) and think they did a fabulous job - good thinking Carwyn! Lion class also worked extremely hard to complete their cross-curricular writing this week and have produced some excellent reports all about Amazonian tribes, biodomes and extinct animals. Children have also made some progress with their 'persuasive adverts' this week, thinking about the vocabulary and language you'd expect to find in an advert. It was great for the children to wind down this afternoon with GLK, playing basket football and basketball matches outside. As Y6 class teacher, I am very proud of what you have all achieved this term and am very much looking forward to getting stuck in next term. 

Have a great Christmas!

It has been a really fabulous week in Lions this week. As we draw closer to Christmas, there have been so many lovely things going on. Year 6 enjoyed a trip to the church where they learned lots and took part in lots of crafty activities. In RE this week, children looked at and discussed lots of depictions of Jesus and how these have changed over time. In Science we learned about adaptation and how different have had to adapt to survive and avoid extinction. It is really great to be starting a new unit of writing and Lions have really enjoyed learning about 'iSpecs' - eyewear of the future! They then presented the product in the way that you'd expect to see on a shopping channel and did a brilliant job of convincing the audience to pick up the phone and order. Children have now started to construct matchstick biodomes in DT but will need more time to perfect their models, can't wait to see the finished piece of work. We continued in Music this week to learn about journeys and how solo performance seem so much more intimate than ensemble performances. In PE, it was great to have a tournament of 'Scorpion Football' and many children now know and understand the rules.

This week in Lions class children have enjoyed learning how to play Scorpion Handball in PE. This is particularly because the children can only move in certain ways. In computing children extended their knowledge of 3D modelling by learning to rotate and duplicate objects, this week started to design keyrings. In PSHE children talked about why friendship is so important and have begun to designs posters to help spread the word. Lions class have been really focussed on their writing this week and have produced some fabulous non-chronological reports this week, I am so proud them all!

This week in Year 6 children have been thinking how environmental variables effect the way things grow. It will be interesting to see whether the seeds need water and light. In DT children have planned their biodomes and started to construct their ideas, we are really looking forward to taking this to level and using wood for the final design. In writing this week, Lions have started to draft their final versions of their non-chronological reports - I can't wait to read their 'hot writes' about animals from the Amazon. Children were keen to learn more about Jesus in their studies of Christianity this week.

yanomami

It was brilliant to see Lions children performing their class assembly this week with so much confidence,  it just goes to show how much they have learned about the Amazon Rainforest this term. In writing, children enjoyed looking at some alternative versions of non-chronological reports in preparation for their own writing. They have learned about 'selective breeding' in Science and can discuss the benefits and disadvantages with confidence. In reading, we have started an new book and the children are clear enjoying finding out about Alex Rider's action packed adventure. In topic this week, Lions class found out the Yanomami tribe of the Amazon and how their lives differ so greatly to our own.

Lions class have had an incredible start back to the term. They have started a new unit in PSHE all about ‘Valuing Difference’ particularly thinking about how they would respond in various situations surrounding bullying - I was very impressed with their responses and reasoning around this subject. In PE this week, children have been learning the rules of how to play seated volleyball focusing specifically on working as a team and equally maintaining balance whilst seated. In Science, Lions class have started to consider ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ and this week have thought about how animals of the same type can be different. Children enjoyed collecting the types of words which might be used in a non-chronological report and I know many have ready thought about how they might use them in their own writing. We are looking forward to a fabulous term ahead in the run up to Christmas!

This week in Lions we were excited to see that an Arctic Frost Dragon visited the classroom, this has been helping children to map out non-chronological reports which we will be learning more about after half term. In Science this week, it was interesting to compare the life cycles of humans with other mammals. Children in Lions enjoyed discussing different types of relationships with Mrs Parker in PSHE and it was great to see players being selected for certificates by the cricket coach this week.

 

Have a wonderful half term and stay safe!

Children in Year 6 had an amazing time dancing and singing the 'World Unite Song' in the church this week for Harvest - I was so proud of them all because it took lots of courage! The children have written some excellent stories this week in writing and should be very pleased with their first Hot Write this year. In PSHE, we discussed how our moods can effect how well our days go and children enjoyed thinking about Dan could have improved his day. In RE, Lions class listened to a range of different hymns and learned about how Christians use singing as a form of worship. Children have drawn detailed diagrams of the inside of a fertilised egg in Science and labelled all of the parts accordingly - This triggered some thoughtful conversations about birds and eggs.

Lions Class Update (08/10/21)

drawing cats

This week, children in Lions class enjoyed developing their Henry Rousseau studies by learning how to draw cats. This will look wonderful when they add them to their final piece over the next few weeks. Children have been drafting their final versions of their suspense stories ready to 'Hot Write' next week and many of them are using lots of the features found in a suspense story. Children in Lions class enjoyed learning about the different types of animals you'd expect to find at various layers of the Amazon rainforest. In PSHE, we talked about how to handle challenging situations in peer groups and lots of children showed that they know how to stand strong and confidently choose between wrong and right. A group of children learned to ride their bikes safely using the roads around Bozeat this week and it was great to see many children confidently cycling home from school.

Lion Class Update (23/09/21)

HR 1

Year 6 children have had an excellent week. They have been learning how to write a tale of fear and many children have been able to identify words and phrases used in similar texts which they could build into their own independent writing later on in the term. They have been learning about the Henry Rousseau and his paintings and were surprised to find out that he had never even visited a rainforest. In computing, children have been learning how information is stored and retrieved, making it easier to search for something specific. Children in Lions class this week have enjoyed finding out about 'The Lord's Prayer' and what it means  as part of their study of Christianity this term.
