Magnificent  Mould Investigation

During Science, Year 6 have been completing an experiment where they change the conditions of pieces of bread to see which makes the microorganism mould grow fastest. The changes included: making the bread damp, putting it in the dark and freezing the bread. One of the groups even toasted theirs a bit! Annabel even said, “ I liked it because we found out how mould can grow and constructed fun scientific experiments to help us develop our knowledge.”   By CTCN reporter Tom

Year 6 trips over to Birmingham City Centre!

On Tuesday 5th March, pupils from Year 6 journeyed on the train to Birmingham! They visited such interesting places like the Library, Cathedral, the Bullring shopping centre, and even the bronze bull statue. The experience was linked to their new topic– ‘Comparing South America to the UK’!

  

Year 6 Canvas Madness

Year 6 and Lynne, our guest artist, came together for their art topic (which was ‘Humanity’s Effect on Nature’). We sketched our design of window views on a piece of paper, ready to be put on a canvas. Mr Filby said, “I was never able to paint or write on a canvas, when I was in Year 6.” After that, we painted  our designs and improved them on the canvas. Some of the finished ‘masterpieces’, will hopefully be good enough to be appreciated by the public at Art in the Park.  By Tom and Sebi, CTCN Reporters

World War Two Day

On Tuesday 4th November Year 5 and Year 6 didn’t come to school…instead lots of children of a young age – evacuees, workers and even soldiers – from World War Two entered our school grounds! They did many different activity and the children had lot of fun, like baking rationing food, re-enacting a blitz, decoding and learning some songs. We would like to say big thank you to the parents and cares who helped get a costume and Mr Filby and Miss O’Kelly for helping organise it.  By CCTN Reporters: Fin and Jess

Science Trip to Campion School

Year 6 were invited to Campion School to dissect and observe a pig’s heart. This was linked to their Science topic of Animals including humans. It was a fascinating experience and something they had never done before!

  

Visit to the Coventry Transport Museum and Herbert Art Gallery and Museum

Year 6’s new topic is World War II and to launch it they visited Coventry. Kyle said, “I really enjoyed visiting the derelict cathedral and learning all about evacuees and air raid shelters at the museum.”

Equipment needed:

PE is on a Monday and Thursday:  PE kit should be left in school and can be taken home to be washed at the end of each half term.

Children should bring in a water bottle which they have access to in the classroom.

Children have been given a new reading folder and diary; this should be in school on a daily basis as volunteers may hear children read at any time.

Homework Days

In Year 6, it is essential that children complete homework tasks to support their learning in class and to prepare them for secondary school.

Monday – fortnightly home learning project in for the following Thursday.

Thursday – numeracy tasks will be set from the children’s own CPG books and will be marked in class on the following Thursday.

Friday – weekly SPaG Homework.

Friday – the children have a spelling test every Friday.  They MUST have their yellow books in school on a Friday to receive their new spelling for the following week.

Reading – children are expected to read at least 3 times a week with a parent/carer.
