Y6 have been learning about notation this week and looking at a stave by playing some practical games. Through different activities this week, we have found out that where notes on a stave sit show which note that equals . We have been creating our own mnemonic phrases to remember note names and had fun being very creative with this. To really test our knowledge, we used giant staves to spell out different words and had to stand correctly on the stave to represent the notes. We have also investigated rhythms and beats and played a game of bingo.
As part of Maths Week England, Y3 demonstrated reasoning and problem solving skills through the logic games they played. They worked well as part of a team to solve a range of problems.
On Friday, 6C watched a video about DIWALI which is the five-day Hindu Festival of Lights and the children took notes. As a class, we talked about respect and celebrating differences.
The whole school enjoyed Maths Week England last week (WB 09.11.20) to celebrate Maths in a variety of different ways. Each class completed Maths Mission tasks using their Maths skills, lots of which showed us how valuable Maths is to everyday life. Some wonderful examples include work which focused on the children creating posters about themselves using number facts, playing a game focusing on factors of a number and completing a jigsaw puzzle using numbers in a different language. Resilience, determination and focus were needed throughout the week. It has been great to see all children working on puzzles and questions with such positive attitudes.
All we had to do was wear odd socks! It was a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week! It was held on Monday 16th November, the first day of Anti-Bullying Week. Some great socks were worn to support this, well done 6H.
Feeding Families is a local charity that we, CHJS, support. This promotes the wellbeing and mental health for those who give and receive aid. Hampers are provided to families in our community. Families and staff are donating food items in order for these hampers to be distributed. Please support us in order to support Feeding Families. All donations need to be in school by 30th November.
Today, we learned about people who died in the wars. We found out that brothers from the same family were stopped from serving together. Why poppies? They were the first flower to grow in the fields after WWI ended so this is the flower to represent all those who died. Lest we forget. Each one of us designed a medal to show bravery.

Dylan M, Ashelee D and Lilly S daily, and very enthusiastically, are sweeping and collecting leaves from the back yard in order for year 6 to have a clear play area. They show fabulous teamwork and resilience and are taking so much pride in what they are achieving. Well done!
This week the children enjoyed watching a short clip from a book by Ruth Brown called The Dark, Dark Tale and then answered questions linked to the book.
