Maples

Bugsy Malone by BB and EF

admin on: Maples

This week we have been doing lots and lots of rehearsing for Bugsy Malone, our end of year production. 

There are lots of songs and lines to learn and we need to know where we need to be on stage.

We have been writing up work in our best books.

In Maths we have been having fun solving murder mystery problems.  We had to solve clues to work out who the murderer was.

Our Residential by JC and JC

admin on: Maples

We all got on the minibus to get to Doncaster.  Our instructor, Brad, showed us around the centre and we put our bags in a room until we could get in the bedrooms.

Our first activity was Bushcraft.  We made fires with hay and dead twigs.  We used flint and steel to get the fire going.  JC had brought marshmallows and we toasted them on the fire.

In the evening our activity was Laserquest and it was extremely enjoyable!

The day after we did orienteering and nobody enjoyed it!

The nightline meant we had to wear a blindfold and hold onto a rope. We went over obstacles and had to tell other people about them.  Mr Clegg kept saying buzz in people's ears to make them jump.

We had a very busy day as there were 5 activities to do including fencing, high ropes and a quiz.  Mr Clegg had to do a T-Rex impression before he was allowed down from the high ropes.

This week in Maples

admin on: Maples

In Literacy this week we have been planning and writing our own African tales about why animals look the way they do. Some of our ideas were: Why the snake has no legs, How the lion became King of the Savannah, How the hyena found its laugh and How the crocodile got its sharp teeth.

In Numeracy we have been solving some very tricky multi-step problems using our addition and subtraction skills. We have been learning about how to use bar models to help us solve these problems.

In our topic we have wrote some excellent reports on deserts from all the research we have done. In ICT we have been writing instructions about how to bookmark the Internet Safety website we have been looking at for Safeguarding week.


Week 4 2017-18

admin on: Maples

In Literacy we have been looking at African creation tales to go with our Topic of Africa this half term. We have read lots of interesting tales including ‘Why the Fish lives in Water’. We have used these tales to inspire our own writing and have created some excellent tales about ‘Why the Giraffe has a long neck’.

In Numeracy we have been working hard to secure our understanding of place value, including negative numbers, and have been completing some very tricky problems, such as this Negative Number Pyramid:

Piece Hall Workshop at Copley

admin on: Maples

On Monday morning, Year Six went to Copley School to learn all about The Piece Hall. While they were there they discovered what happened at the Piece Hall in the 17th century and from then to now. Three women, who worked at the Piece Hall (called Jo, Megan and Ellen), came in to talk and do activities with them. The first activity was about where the fabric that was sold at the Piece Hall came from and where it was shipped to. Next they moved onto the table where they pretended to be an archaeologist by digging up ancient artefacts. Once that activity had finished they were weaving wool to make cloth and then they moved on to a table where they learnt what happened at the Piece Hall when they weren’t selling cloth. It was a really enjoyable day and they learnt lots of interesting information about the history of the Piece Hall as well as make some new friends from our federation school.

We have also produced some fantastic pieces of artwork based on animals in the Savannah. Here are some examples:
