Welcome to Classes 13 and 14
Christmas is coming!
Year 6 have been busy making decorations for our Christmas branches which have been hung in the school hall.
Dragon Claws with Mrs Taylor
Year Six enjoyed constructing authentic – looking dragon claws from Chicken wire plastered with Mod Roc. They were improving their mastery of art and design techniques using unfamiliar materials.
Dragon Eyes with Mrs Taylor
Class 14 made Dragon Eyes out of clay. The class enjoyed having the opportunity to refine their ability to work with a malleable material. They carefully formed coils of clay and flattened small slabs of clay. They then added texture by making impressions with wooden tools.
Clifton High Masterclass
Year 6 had a brilliant afternoon investigating chemicals. They carried out a practical and discovered that chemicals can combine to produce some really interesting colours.
Year 6 Life Skills Trip
Year 6 visited Bristol Lifeskills Centre in October. Volunteer Guides took small groups of children around their realistic "village" to experience a number of difficult or dangerous situations. Children worked together to decide how to overcome each problem and had the opportunity to learn from their mistakes in a safe environment. It made them think carefully about how they assess risks to their own safety.
Year 6 Maths Challenge
Mr Beard took four Year 6 children to a Maths Challenge at Redmaids' School. There were 50 teams entered from 25 state and independent schools across Bristol. Our two teams consisting of Pete & Marshall and Mya & Albert achieved an amazing joint 15th place. Mr Beard was very proud of them all.
Our learning metaphor for 2019/2020 is Exploration so very soon you will be able to see our new Class Charters.
