Two children in Year 6 were lucky enough to spend the afternoon with Beverley Naidoo and write poems!#
Year 6 had the best time on their end-of-year trip to Chessington World Of Adventures Resort. The sun was shining, the rides were stomach-churning and the laughter was never-ending. Next day, we also wrote some pretty thrilling recounts of the Vampire Ride. What a treat for all the hard work this year! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
For World of Work week, Year 6 had a visit from a Management Consultant and a Pharmacist. They both gave us an insight about their profession and how they manage their workload. They spoke about the challenges they faced and how they persevered. The children took part in a small activity to match the name of the medicine to its function. They asked relevant questions to find out more information about our visitors and their job roles.
Year 6 attended a workshop in Pizza Express. We learnt about the origins and the ingredients of Pizza Margherita and then turned into pizzaiolos and prepared our very own, delicious pizzas! On our way home, we stopped at Brick Lane to admire the lamp posts that we helped to design earlier this year. What a fantastic trip!
Year 6 had a creative writing workshop with the poet Adisa, who came to inspire them and guide them in writing their own poems on this year’s creative writing competition theme ‘We need to make some changes around here’.
Ten of our Year 6 children participated in the Tower Hamlets Book Award this term and enjoyed the challenge of reading the six titles shortlisted for this year’s award. They attended the finale at Canary Wharf on the 24th November together with pupils from 33 other schools , where they had the chance to meet two of the winning authors, Jo Cotterill and Philip Reeve and to get books signed. Two of our pupils won prizes for their artwork in response to the winning book, Jo Cotterill’s ‘A Library of Lemons’.
