The story so far

It’s been a very busy few weeks but the boys on the house have been earning excellent token scores so we went to one of our favourite places last week; the trampoline park! We are looking forward to the lighter evenings and getting back on the mountain bikes again. We will be working on making some videos very soon. We enjoyed making our last music video and are pleased with the results, and will soon be working on animating one of Josh’s stories with modelling clay. The year 6 boys are determined to make the most out of their last two terms at school and are trying hard to help each other achieve this.We have enjoyed some great activities in the past few months.

One of our favourite activities has been going to a trampoline park. Some of us are now able to do a front flip and land on our feet. We had a campfire in December that we helped to build and then cooked our dinner over it. We then roasted marshmallows and made S’mores!

In the evenings we love to watch anything Star Wars related, so we were very excited to go and watch the new film in 3D! We have really enjoyed the new Lego Star Wars series ‘The Freemaker Adventures’…it was VERY funny!

We went to a World Buffet restaurant at the 02 and tried all kinds of new foods…including octopus!

We have been going bowling regularly and many of us are now breaking 100 points.

Learning together

This term we have been learning about a variety of subjects. We do this through group discussions, quizzes, videos and books. We have learnt about how the Earth and Solar System was formed, the various planets and their differences, and have compared the size and distances of the planets in relation to earth. We have also studied the Milky Way and other galaxies, light speed and black holes. We have learnt about the evolution of life on Earth with the help of the television series ‘The Journey of Life’ and especially enjoyed the sections on birds and apes. In Geography we have been learning about the continents, countries and the formation of mountains. We now have a lot of knowledge about plate tectonics, earthquakes and tsunamis.

Celebrations and achievements

Beau joined the house recently and has made huge progress with his behaviour on the house and in school. He is learning to play the guitar too.
