Poetry - The Lost Words
This week, we've been learning all about 'The Lost Words', written by Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris.
In classes, we delved into individual spell songs (Adder, Willow & Bluebell) before creating our own, free-verse poems. After, we selected our individual favourite lines before collaborating them into a class poem to rehearse, next week we'll be performing these and our GarageBand accompaniments to parents!
Walesby Forest - Year 6 Residential!
Last week, we travelled to Walesby Forest for a two-night stay, taking part in LOADS of different activities!
From abseiling, right through to rifling and even a torch-lit walk, we conquered our fears, embraced new challenges and supported one another along the way. Staying in dormitories with our peers helped to develop our independence away from home, with strict room inspections keeping us in check!
We had a fantastic time & we will be writing up some reflections later in the year. Stay tuned for a photo-gallery!
Thank you Walesby Forest!
This week, we welcomed John back to Manor Leas Junior Academy to re-launch Curiosity Club!
In a world where cultural capital could take over and vocabulary could become challenging, we're re-starting our Curiosity journeys to learn more about history across the world, showing off our new knowledge in many different ways!
Here we go!
We've hit the ground running with our Effective Maths!
Using concrete resources & articulating them into problems, we built our confidence for ordering and comparing numbers ahead of our end of Unit Assessments next week!
