In science, we investigated Peppered Moths. They used to be with black dots, but as their environment became more dirty from pollution, they have adapted to become black so that birds cannot find them and eat them. We made some dotted moths and some black moths and hid them in an area of the playground for our partners to find.
In RSHE, we thought about how to promote positive self-esteem we played games thinking about what we are good at and then complimented each other. We all had much better self-esteem by the end of the lesson.
We used our measuring skills to solve real life problems in our playground. We learned we had to measure accurately to get the correct answers.
Jamie has very kindly set up and is running chess club on a Friday lunchtime for Diamond Class. The first one was all about the moves you can play and was a great success. Thank you Jamie.
We had great fun learning different techniques and methods of moving a ball around with a hockey stick. We competed in dribbling relay races to help increase our speed and control.
In RE this half term, we are thinking about ‘What is it like to follow God?’ We studied the Bible to see how it is organised and thought about any Bible stories we knew.
We had a celebration assembly for the Year 6 leavers and Diamond Class performed Bugsy Malone. We were very proud of all the Year 6 achievements and wish them well for high school.
Diamond Class were very lucky to receive their own individual copy of ‘Kiki Kallira breaks the kingdom’ signed by Sangu Mandanna. Thanks go to the ‘Friends of Fleggburgh’ for organising this. The class will be studying the novel over the next weeks – look out for their work related to it.
Diamond Class have a task of trying to learn the periods in British History this term. They are definitely getting better at remembering the order!
