  • Mould

    Published 03/11/22

    In our science lessons we have been learning about how mould forms.  We left slices of white bread in plastic bags around our classrooms to see what would happen.  After the half term holiday, we observed our results.  Some of the slices had speckles of mould on them and others were completely covered in green.  Disgusting!

  • Making our Mark

    Published 14/09/22

    Year 6 have very quickly settled back into life at Sheen Mount.  In the first couple of weeks of the new academic year, we have been learning about the experience of the children who were evacuated during World War II as part of our history lessons.  We have also started to read our core text, “Letters from the Lighthouse”, in which two children are evacuated to Devon to keep them safe from the Blitz.  We are looking forward to writing our own letters in the style of an evacuee next week.

    This week we really enjoyed consolidating and extending our understanding of colour mixing and theory as part of our unit of work on Mark Rothko and Abstract Expressionism.

You delivered your lines with confidence, supported each other on and off the stage and sung your hearts out! A big thank you to the audience for participating fully, laughing at the bad gags, and getting a sweat on with Jane Fonda's workout.
