Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

As part of their work on Judaism Yr.6 have been looking at the Jewish festivals of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  They have written and performed news reports about these festivals showing both knowledge and understanding of this important time in the Jewish calendar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_Mm3mvzSkk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgPAT9LSAYw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiJCN3yzDK0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrFvMFz8xiw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Cpn4BaPW_4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wxw8nCt53Nk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKEYuqOZq5E      

Science and Art

Today we had a super visitor come into Eagles her name was Helen Sharp. Helen is working with Folkestone Academy Radio. She showed some amazing photographs of butterfly wings, frogs, butterfly tongues, chrysalises and cocoons. We drew our own pictures and then she interviewed us for the Radio.

Eagles Perform Poems

Today Mrs O’Callaghan’s English group performed poems. We really thought about rhymes, rhythms, alliteration, pauses for effect and actions. Mrs O thought we were amazing see what you think! https://youtu.be/ycodUWS17Cc https://youtu.be/GO1kVcPdUlA https://youtu.be/rlk8vzcumn4 https://youtu.be/cVM4fa7hBrc https://youtu.be/LXUJKybPCEo

Shapes

In Maths we have been revising 2D shapes, learning about open and closed shapes and beginning to learn about the perimeter of shapes as we discuss the length of shapes. To help us understand this we have been building shapes with decimetre sticks. We have even started to build “tricky” shapes that use more sticks than sides!
