This week Class 8 have been working on Romeo and Juliet. The children have been really interested in the tragic love story where we have looked at the different characters and retold the story in our own words.

In maths we have been using our tests from last week to build on and fill any gaps in our learning. This has included proportion, compound area and percentages. During our 'Click' tests in the morning we have been listening to The Cardigans 'Love Fool'. The lyrics in this are linked to Romeo and Juliet.

We have also been extending our learning on Golapagos tortoise and how they have adapted to their environment. This science work has extended into a PLO to make our own dough which we will use for an ICT animation. This will tell the story of their evolution and hopefully we will share some on the website soon.

The Year 6 pupils have been practicing some first aid during SkillsForce. We now know what to do if a serious blood accident should occur. In the picture we have learnt how to raise our limbs to help reduce the flow of blood.
