Year 6 Film Premiere and Oscars Evening

Last night, the families of children in Year 6 were out in their glad rags to celebrate films made by the children.  The brief given to the children was to create an informative film to show to people who are interested in visiting Shugborough Outdoor Education Centre.
There was a brilliant turn out on the night and everyone enjoyed themselves, especially walking down the red carpet!
I'm sure all those who attended the evening would agree that the children had worked extremely hard on the films and done themselves proud!
 The overall Best Film Award went to Team G (Naomi Robins, Katie Davies, Michaela Neal, Ben Grice and Ryan Quinn).  Well done to all of the children in Year 6!

Just a quick reminder that the year 6 SATs will take place on Monday 11th May and run through to Friday 15th May.  It is vital that all children in year 6 attend during this week. It is also vital that children get plenty of sleep during this time and also eat a good brekfast before coming to school that week. 


The Tudors Continue...

After a fantastic half term studying Henry VIII and his six wives, the Tudor topic will continue with Tudors Rich and Poor.  During this topic, we will be looking at the lives of both rich and poor people living during the Tudor period.  This will include houses, jobs and leisure.  As part of studying leisure activities of rich people, we will be finding out about William Shakespeare and Tudor theatres, which will link in well with our literacy work on playscripts.  Our design and technology project also links in well to the topic as we will be designing and making Tudor houses.  Fore more information about each of the subjects we will be studying this half term, please look at our curriculum map.  (Will be added early next week)

Year 5/6 Theatre Trip

I would like o take this opportunity to remind parents that we will be visiting the Grand Threatre on Thursday 5th March to watch Romeo and Juliet for kids.  If you have not returned your permission slip or the cost of £13.50, then please do so ASAP, as the theatre are now asking for payment. We are looking forward to this performance very much as we will be studying the play Romeo and Juliet in the weeks following this trip.

Performing Arts Success!

Well done to all of the children in year 6, who performed in the Cheslyn Hay High School performing arts show.  For the show the children performed their own version of the Haka, normally performed by the All Blacks, before international rugby games.  The performance was very different! (and absolutely fantastic!)  You were a credit to Whitgreave Primary School - well done!

Cooking up Success in Maths!

During this half term, children in year 6 have been learning about ratio and proportion.  As part of this work they did some cooking!  The recipe for our lovely biscuits was to make 20.  We looked at the recipe and halved the ingredients to make 10 and then doubled it to make 40! We really enjoyed the biscuits (some didn't even make it home for mums and dads!)
