STEM Glider Challenge
We recently took part in the 'Road to RIAT STEM Glider Challenge' – where we go to showcase our Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths skills.
Wow, what a treat we have had today! We were joined by musicians Josh and Ellie, who played us music through the ages on their keyboard and violin. They were amazing! We loved singing along to the songs we were familiar with, especially ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’.
We learnt some key musical words:
Major - happy sounds
Minor - sad sounds
Pitch means how high or low a sound is.
Dynamic means how loud or quiet a sound is.
Tempo means how slow or fast it is.
Legato means a smooth sound and means a staccato spiky.
We then made our own musical composition using these key features.
Thank you for all the wonderful donations towards this year's 'wear green' campaign for World Mental Health Day
On Friday 7th October Year 6 went to the Cheltenham Literature Festival. We had a great day. It all started with our session with the author Louie Stowell. She is the author of the book series all about Loki. During her session, she showed us how to draw the book characters like she does. We all used our imagination to give her ideas to create new gods with new powers and ideas. After our session, we went to the Wild Woods to explore and follow the trail to find the clues. Some of us solved puzzles and clues set by GCHQ in their den.
