As part of studying our new text 'Letters from the Lighthouse' we studied life in London during the Blitz. We looked at some photos of the effects of the German bombs and considered the thoughts and feelings of people at that time. We annotated the picture with examples of powerful and figurative language for a writing activity that would happen later in the week.
6W had lots of fun painting their remembrance poppies in art this week!
This week some Oakdale classes have been competing in the Redbridge Sumdog competition and 6D are delighted to have won: the first time an Oakdale class has been the overall winner! Well done to Tyler, Violet and Isabel who received certificates for being in the top 10!
6D enjoyed taking part in the Virgin Mini Marathon, running every day last week to ensure a total of 2.6 miles run.
6W maths had lots of fun trying to solve this pretty tricky puzzle! These dedicated mathematicians decided to stay in at breaktime to complete it. Well done to Tyler, who found the solution first.
Amazing work, Tyler!
This Thursday, 1st October was National Poetry Day. 6W read 'See Through My Eyes' by Karl Nova. It was definitely eye opening for us; we had some brilliant discussions about the importance of diversity in society!
