We did it! Now for Film Week!

Year 6 had an introductory assembly about their new exciting venture. Film week plans are beginning, with story mapping and script writing taking place next week.

The children really enjoyed meeting Paul and Ashley who will be leading them through their story telling journey.

Suffolk Folk Tales

Over the last two weeks, Year 6 have been reading, exploring and interpreting folk tale stories passed down through many generations. Their aim is to unpick these tales and rewrite them in their own unique style to use as stimuli for their films.

Film week will begin the second week after half term, and the children are well on their way to immersing themselves in creative ideas to begin the process.

Into the Dragons’ Den

What a sensational way to end our term’s learning! Year 6 were outstanding! They pitched their ideas, presented well-thought out adverts, answered tricky question linked to finance and eco-values, and shared their absolute enthusiasm for their innovative products that could revolutionise someone’s life. 

Many thanks to all the parents who supported us this morning, making this a real-life learning experience for all.
Happy Easter everyone.

Gorilla Fitness

This afternoon, Year 6 were put through their paces with a circuit training session. There was a fantastic effort given all round – lots of fun was had too!Happy weekend everyone! Don’t forget that next Friday is our Dragons’ Den event. We look forward to seeing you then!

6A get busy making their inventions.

I can’t wait to see the outcome of their hard work – 6A have been extremely industrious this afternoon, putting their Dragons’ Den products together. A few more hours of learning time remain until their deadline. You can do it 6A – keep working together and supporting each other!

Seeing into the Future!

Today, Year 6 were given the chance of a lifetime – to see into the new technologies currently being developed within the walls of Adastral Park. It was an excellent interactive event, engaging our young people with inspiring technologies, such as: virtual reality; hologram programming; 3D printing for the medical world; videoing tracking, customer profiling; robotic programming and more. As the children explored these technologies, they took part in challenges to trial the areas of interest. Two of our Gorseland teams even won prizes for robot programming and the space race.A fantastic time was experienced by all, and the children were a credit to the school, showing exemplary behaviour and maturity. 

Sensational Year 6 Fundraising event

As very proud teachers, we just wish to send out a massive thank you to everyone that has run, baked, helped prep tombola prizes, bagged sweets, found sponsors (or been a sponsor!) and worked passionately to raise funds for film week. We have been overwhelmed by everyone’s commitment and generosity and have enjoyed seeing the children so keen to get involved.

Well done one and all!Miss Lambert and Mrs Orrin

Celebrating books

World Book Day has been a roaring success. Year 6 came dressed in some inspirational costumes, linked to their favourite texts – I thought I had arrived in Hogwarts! The book blether and willingness to share their book loves was superb.What a motivated group of youngsters! Thank you everyone!

Year 6 Fencing Taster Session

Year 6 enjoyed an active session in which they learned the art of fencing. It was a fun-packed thirty minutes and the children felt very motivated afterwards. Anyone who particularly enjoyed the taster would be welcome to attend the fencing club starting soon.
