Portraits

On Thursday, Year 6 spent the morning developing their skills in portrait sketches. They finished the lesson by drawing a portrait of a character from Lord of the Flies. Because Year 6 worked so hard on these portraits, their final pieces are going to be displayed in school for everyone to enjoy!

Year group assembly

Last Wednesday, all of Year 6 performed an exceptional assembly to a packed out hall! Y6 displayed their drama skills, demonstrated a Socratic Seminar and even treated other pupils and parents to a song! Mr Plowman and Mrs McCaffrey were extremely proud of Y6 as they presented clearly and and showed great knowledge and understanding of their learning so far.

Borrowbox

Today, we had a visit from the School's Library Service. They helped us to log on to Borrowbox... a new app for our ipads. With Borrowbox, we will be able to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from the library. We were all very excited and can't wait to get borrowing.

Have you ever read an ebook? How is it different to reading a normal book?

Class reading book

Mr Plowman (plowmanmike@pikes-lane.bolton.sch.uk) on: Mr Plowman 2017-18

In 6MP, we have started reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding. It has some really challenging vocabulary in it but we are really enjoying the story so far. We are busy trying to decide who will lead the group... Jack, Ralph or Piggy.

Have you read any books that include survival against the odds? Perhaps you have watched a film or television programme that is about people having to survive in extreme circumstances. Comment on this post and tell us about it!
