Last week, we went on a shadow hunt around the school. When the children spotted a shadow they had to make a note of the light source and the object blocking that light source.
Look out for shadows outside school too, what is…
There is a new writing star in Year 6. In the last few months this developing author has experienced a new level of confidence. He puts the progress down to doing 15 minutes of English homework every school night.
We have been learning about decimal points during our maths lessons. During P.E we used metre rulers to measure in a standing jump. We wrote down our scores on a whiteboard using decimal points.
We jumped three times. We added all our scores together and divided by three to get our average. We…

Today we learnt about how genes are passed on from our parents. We started the lesson with Mr Weir putting a picture of a pair of jeans on the whiteboard, however above it he wrote the word genes and we discussed this using the clue. He then taught us that we have millions of cells in our body and…
I hope you enjoyed my article! My 5 top tips for writing an awesome news report are;
1 - Include quotes
2 - Make your headline short and snappy. Using aliteration in a headline is a good technique.
3 - Include a split clause... Yesterday Zoe, a twenty year old blogger, had a disaster at STCD.
Year 6 have been fossil hunting. We excavated the rock carefully using a brush and a chisel. It took a lot longer than we expected and some of us got really messy! Dexter and Yahya found a dinosaur!

I’ve packed my clothes my Sunday best,
There is no room for all the rest.
I’ve packed my memories in my head,
At night ill share them with my ted.
I’ve left my home, my own bedroom,
I’ve left the smell of mum’s perfume.
I’ve left my mum she had to stay,
I wish she had come with me today.
