Ball Games, Baking and Bread

Year 6 had an amazing day today and were  baking up a treat in the art room. It was amazing to see year 6 working together to create some amazing freshly baked bread. Everyone listened really well, they followed the instructions carefully and they left with some amazing treats they can be proud of! Well done team.

After break Sycamore (version 2) wrote up some amazing instructional texts about how they made the bread! Some people put in a lot of effort and wrote like crazy!

Our day ended with a bit of food tasting! We tasted a whole variety of bread to see what they tasted like, we compared different types of bread to each other to see which one was our favourite. We tried: Bagels, Seed Rolls, Croissants, Pita Bread and Brioche (I think this one was the favourite!)

Well done to Sycamore and Sugar Maple for having such a great day.

Building and Creating in Year 6

Whilst we may have lost half of year 6 to some thing called….Kingswood? The rest of us have been getting our hands dirty with a bit of arts and crafts.

In Sycamore (version 2) we started our day by trying to create some pretty cool 3D masks. Some of us decided to make animals, others decided to make scary horror-themed masks and some decided to make whimsical characters such as unicorns!

It was pretty messy, but we did a fantastic job of cleaning up after ourselves!! (Hi Miss O’Connor!)


After break we went on to bit of drama! First we had to write a script for our play – it had to have a beginning, a middle and an end, of course! We were given time to practice and learn our lines and then we had some fun performing our plays in front of the class.


Finally, after lunch, we were given a challenge: create a bridge which spanned 20cm and would be able to support 1.5kg. The trick? We were only allowed to use spaghetti and PVA glue. It was messy, but we were allowed to draw on the tables! (Ok, there was paper on the tables….)

We are having plenty of fun whilst simultaneously working on some of our team-building skills; the added bonus is we get to keep our feet on the ground!
