6BG's Blog

Friday 7th December

This week, 6BG have been creating Christmas decorations for the classroom. We made stained glassed windows, hand holly reefs and paper chains. This took us about the entire afternoon to do and now the classroom is full of decoration and everyone enjoyed making these.
Also on Tuesday we went to the pantomime to see Cinderella. We left at 11o’clock and got there at 11:35. We had a great time and got back to school at 4:30. We have written fan-mail to our favourite actor.

Friday 16th November

This week 6BG have been looking at anti bullying and recycling (the 3Rs; Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). In class we have written poems and songs about the importance of recycling. As well as this, we have watched clips from Blue Planet II and songs by Michael Jackson and Madonna that made us think about the impact us humans have on the Earth.
For anti-bullying we had odd socks day where everyone had to wear odd socks. Vinnie had worn thigh high socks and a normal sock! This week we had lots of fun and hope to have more fun next week too. See you then!

This week 6BG has had a wonderful amount of activities to do. In Literacy, we have had to write a diary entry as Jim Hawkins from ‘Treasure Island’.
Aswell as this we have had a trip to the Canterbury Cathedral where we visited different Prayer Stations. At the end of the day, we sat in the Nave for a Service. We loved getting the train!

Friday 2nd November

What a wonderful first week back. This week has been fabulous. We watched Treasure Island and read extracts from the book (by Robert Louis Stevenson) in Literacy and lots of other fun things.

On Thursday 30th the whole school went out for outdoor learning day. Unfortunately, it rained as soon as we got out both times so we didn’t get as much done as we had hoped! Two of the activities were a blindfolded challenge and a ‘Country Hunt’.

6BG made wonderful projects over the half term on WW2. Sasha and Dylan got a Shining Star award for theirs. Some did it on their family history; others made models.

On the morning of Thursday 18th October, 6BG went to the Ramsgate tunnels for an historical visit. This was a trip linked to our topic of WW2 and it was fantastic!

Down in the tunnels we heard the stories about people who had stayed there during air raids. One included a story where a father was reading his paper on the bottom bunk, while his young son slept above him on the top bunk. The boy wet himself and it dripped through onto the dad! He soon swapped bunks!

Some facts:

  • The tunnels were never meant to be built but A.B.C Kemp brought the idea to Parliament to get permission to build them.
  • They protected the town from Air Raids
  • It took £60,000 to build.
  • Richard Bremmel designed the tunnels.
  • 130 steps to enter.

We enjoyed a couple of biscuits by the beach before returning to school!

In science we built a circuit to see what effect it had on a bulb. This made us wonder what other effects it would have, other than changing variables like the brightness of the light.
On Friday night, a school disco was held in the school hall for all of the children. We really enjoyed the taste of music and the wonderful food on sale.
We are looking forward to the trip to the Ramsgate Tunnels this coming Thursday.

This week, our school held an Inter-House Poetry competition. Lots of people took part in this event and had put lots of hard work and effort into this, both inside and outside of school. In our class, both Clio and Els took part for Water House helping Water to win.

As well as this our House Captains have been elected and will take part in many House days in the future. Representing our class are: Sid (for Earth); Liam (for Water); Lily (for Fire) and Dylan and Ellie (for Air).

In addition, our School Councillors, Sid and Clio (for our class), will be attending a meeting soon to discuss their ideas.
