LQ: Can I understand what extremism is and learn about where extremism has occurred?

Barley class worked in pairs to explain what extreme means. We then used these meanings to understand what extremism is and discussed where this had occurred in the past.

Pupils were also able to give other examples that linked to books they had read, films they had watched. Barley class discussed why people may hold these views and held a class discussion about these.

Can I solve problems with fractions?

Children in year 6 have been completing lots of work on calculations involving fractions. They have been working hard to compare and simplify fractions, moving on to using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. On Wednesday morning, the children worked in pairs to solve a range of fractions problems (both arithmetic and reasoning) and were able to explain the process required for the different types of problems. Lots of great work and good progress made.

Can I create a war poem using powerful and emotive language and Imagery?
Can I create Remembrance art using silhouettes and shading, using different mediums?

Barley Class work this week linked with remembrance Day. We analysed a range of different poems, written by different writers, on the war. We then used these as inspiration to write our own war poems using powerful language and imagery.

We also used a range of art mediums to create silhouette artwork linked to Remembrance Day. To create the background we used the shading technique to create a sunset effect.

Some of these were also shared on our Remembrance Service on Friday.

7 Billion Ideas!

This morning, Barley class were treated to a special visitor from the '7 Billion Ideas' project. We watched some videos and heard some inspirational stories of young people who had come up with world changing ideas and inventions (sometimes leading them to become multi-millionaires!) We will be taking part in #ROAR2018, where the children will be working in small groups to work on enterprising projects, inventing products of their own and making models and marketing materials.

The Caistor Lions have generously funded the project and a representative from them may be helping with our judging in a few months time. Over the next few weeks we will be building on the children's initial ideas and we will keep our blog updated with our progress.

Can I re-tell a myth story using drama?

In Barley class we have been having lots of fun this week, learning about different Ancient Greek myths. In small groups we read the stories (Hercules, Perseus and Medusa, Theseus and the Minotaur) and the performed them for the rest of the class. We are also reading about the Adventures of Odysseus. We will explore the structure and language of myths in even more detail before we begin planning and writing our own stories!

Can I write a report about a creature using a range of sentence skills?

In Barley class, we have been learning about magical creatures through the wonderful book 'Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide'. We explored different beasts and worked on particular sentence skills to enhance our writing. After looking at examples, we then created our own creature and planned and wrote a report about them, including interesting facts about their appearance, behaviour and other feature.

Barley Hook Day

The children in Barley class had lots of fun and a fantastic start to the term with our Ancient Greek Hook Day. Many of the class wore exciting costumes; dressed as soldiers, emperors, or even Gods and Goddesses. We designed and painted some terracotta pots in the style of Ancient Greek pottery as well as designing and crafting theatre masks and tasting some Greek salad! We look forward to sharing some of our work, as well as lots of writing and other art projects, in our class learning share that will take place before Christmas.
