Welcome little minions!

Christmas 2020 - a sprinkling of magic on the last day of term! 🌨 Have a lovely Christmas holiday Class 6! 🀢

Well done Class 6 on raising a fantastic Β£25 after our movie and popcorn afternoon! We’ve been able to buy a special gift 🎁 for our child in need! ❣

This year, Alumwell are joining forces with the charity 'Family Action' to help bring some Christmas Magic heart to a child in need.  Read the letter written by our school council representative, Romaysa Zaman, to find out what Class 6 are planning to do in order to raise money to buy a special Christmas gift.

Meet our very first 99 Club Champion of the year. A very BIG well done on your excellent achievement! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ†

It’s Design & Technology week in Year 4 and we’re creating torches from scratch! How on earth are we doing that you might be thinking!? Well, just check out our photos below and all will be revealed! πŸ˜‰ 

Step 1 - Make the circuit which includes a battery, bulb, wires and a homemade switch!

Step 2 - Cut off the top of a plastic bottle and place the circuit into the main body of the bottle. Attach the switch to the outside of the bottle. Turn the bottle top upside down and insert the bulb into the mouthpiece and this becomes the torch head.

Step 3 - Time to decorate the housing of the torch!

After a week of great teamwork and super problem solving, here are our working torches!

Class 6 designed stamps especially for Anti-Bullying Week. Take a πŸ‘€ at some of our creations!

 

We're currently reading The Great Kapok Tree in English. It's about a man who is ordered to chop down a kapok tree but dozes off while resting from the hard labor. Each creature, from a tiny insect to a mighty jaguar, explains the importance of the tree, including holding the soil in place during heavy rains, providing food and shelter, and producing oxygen.

 

Read our letters below to find out how the animals used many persuasive devices to convince the man not to chop down the kapok tree.

The Lost Thing

We have been reading this humorous story about a boy who discovers a bizarre-looking creature whilst out collecting bottle-tops at the beach. Take a look below at our Utopian creatures which we designed and wrote non-chronological reports about.

Take a look at the work below from our Nature week when Class 6 became nature explorers, taking part in art, science, maths and English tasks.  Do you know your birch trees from your maple trees? We do! πŸ˜›
