W/E 20th September

It has been a busy week this week as we juggled normal lessons around the year six cycling! With only a few hiccups (like forgotten bikes!) I am pleased to report that all of the children passed level one and some even passed their level two cycling tests. Certificates will be presented in assembly in the near future. Well done year six I hope to see many of you continuing to cycle into school daily.

In maths we have been securing our methods for addition (including decimals) – and learning new ones. Several children have moved on with their methods.

We began studying Shakespeare this week and the children enjoyed acting out scenes from a Midsummer Nights Dream. Next week we move onto the scottish play – Macbeth – and in preparation for this the children have been reading the witches spell. Their homework this weekend is to write their own spell in the style of Shakespeare. They were shown an example of one and i have included it here to help them –

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble

Snot taken from a snail
Mixed together with lizard’s tail
Toe of leper and eye of dog
Stuffed with the entrails of a frog
Hair from a sweaty man’s back
Added to a torturer’s rack
Tears from a girl in lots of trouble
Make our cauldron boil and bubble

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble

Shark’s teeth and pirate’s head
Dipped in sticky blood from the dead
Poison berries from a tree
Wizard’s teeth and old hag’s knee
Elephant’s trunk and camel’s hump
Mashed potato in a lump
Throw it in at the double
To make our cauldron boil and bubble

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble

Dolphin’s chuckle and pint of cider
Breath of cat and roar of tiger
Mix together all and stew
To prepare this deadly brew
Donkey’s bite and hedgehog’s heart
Prince’s lips and warthog’s fart
Then chant together in our huddle
To make our cauldron boil and bubble

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble

I look forward to reading them and will share the best ones on the blog.

We were fortunate to have a visit from Jodie Hill on Friday. She is a member of the GB sitting volleyball team and participated in the Paralympics last year in London. She talked to the class about her involvement in the sport and her disability. All of the class had an opportunity to hold her prosthetic legs! Jodie Hill 004
