School council take on healthy eating

Today, the wonderful Samanyu and Leo represented Broadford School Council in a meeting  at Brookside school. To begin, I was super proud of the boys, who kickstarted the meeting with a PowerPoint presentation (designed by Mr Handoo) on healthy eating. They discussed what our school has done to promote healthy eating, presented the children with valuable statistics and displayed what healthy and unhealthy foods looks like.

After the presentation, the children designed menus from across the world including a World Cup, Winter Olympics, and a Mexican menu etc. The children then had the opportunity to explore Brookside school, before finally heading back. 

I am super proud of our representatives today, I look forward to our next meeting. 

Miss Taylor.

Below are the Year 6 Spellings for this week. The weekly test will be on a Friday and children should hand their books in on this day too. 

Pupils are expected to practice their spellings for 15 minutes per day as well as practice their times tables and read at home. Children are encouraged to search for the definitions of the words and use them in sentences in order to gain merits for their trackers.

Willow class star writer

In Willow class, our star writer is the great Ayomade, after he produced an amazing story of his own based simply on an ambiguous picture of a boat. The children were presented with an awfully strange image, discussed their ideas and then developed their own stories around it. Ayomade titled his story the Elves and a Minotaur and showed he possesses natural authorial talents. He used a range of openers to vary his writing, included varied sentence structures and created vivid descriptions through the use of powerful adjectives. Keep up the great writing Ayomade.

Prometheus and Pandora

In Willow, our story, which we are studying this term, is Prometheus and Pandora. Yesterday, the children focused on retelling the story, ensuring they could recall every section in chronological order. Knowing the story inside and out will ensure the children are able to then produce an accurate retell of their own, from the perspective of Pandora.

In order to retell the story, the children worked in groups of 4, to reenact it. 

There were some amazing performances, which proved the children are now masters of the story. Keep it up Willow!

Archy Gore - Mathemagician

Archy Gore has had a phenomenal start to year 5 in Willow class and has proven to be a real asset to the maths world. He has been striving to ensure he achieves the best he possibly can, not only in class, but at home as well. Mr Gore aims to smash his Rockstars, so has challenged himself with his 12x tables at home, going all the way to 12 x 315. A true Mathemagician! Keep it up Archy, I am super impressed with you!
