Well done to Year 6 for completing your moods boards this week. It has been really nice to see all of your different interests and inspirations come together. Your boards stimulated super conversations between yourselves and your parents at the PYPX coffee morning. Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend, it was a great turn out and so valuable for the children to have you there and support.
Exhibition is well underway, the children have grouped themselves into similar interest areas and started to talk about ideas, thoughts, names and where they would like to go next with their thinking.
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed the action packed Gecko Maths competition on Tuesday! You all worked very hard in your teams, there was a great atmosphere of teamwork and determination in the hall. Well done to the top three teams, we look forward to entering a team or two at the Island School competition.
Our team of tree planters had a very successful and hard working day on Lantau. This action might have inspired some of our environment groups for exhibition? Thank you to Mr Hoskins, Mr Melsom and Ms Chand for your help on the day.
The children who didn’t go to Lantau enjoyed a morning of sketching. They looked at shading, the use of lines and shading when looking at scenic views from the classroom window.

Next week, the children will have their first exhibition meeting with their mentor. This is a chance to share your ideas and discuss a plan in your groups and with your mentor. Don’t forget to record your discussion points on your mentor log for future use. Year 6 will also meet up in their groups during next week to brainstorm action ideas and make connections to the key concepts. The children will continue to add to their exhibition journals, documenting their thinking and starting to formulate a clearer idea of their focus area.
Central Idea – Fractions, decimal fractions and percentages are ways of representing whole-part relationships
An inquiry into…

– sequences involving whole numbers, fractions and decimals.
Central Idea – Data Handling

We will continue to interpret the song lyrics of our chosen exhibition songs. The children made a fantastic start doing this last week, some wonderful connections were made. The children are encouraged to think about how these songs are relevant to our exhibition journey and how they relate to the wider world as well.
