A Roman, a Bishop, a robot and no pens!


No it's not the start of a bad joke, just another busy week in the life of Class 6!

We started off by revising and learning Roman Numerals up to 10,000 and recreated a number on the playground - can you work out what it is?

We were delighted to be visited by the Rt Revd Paul Slater, Bishop of Kirkstall accompanied by Shadwell's own Revd David Young. After an informative assembly and tour of the school, they came to year 6 for a Q&A session. The children had prepared some fantastic questions to which Bishop Paul gave some very interesting answers about his life and duties.

On Tuesday we had our first visit to Allerton Grange school for our computing sessions involving programming and controlling robots. The children were absolute whizzes and are looking forward to our next session.

Wednesday was 'No Pens Day', and we started off by solving some maths puzzles involving rounding. We practised our spellings using British Sign Language. We then discussed and prepared our responses to the debate question 'Does technology help us to learn?'. The children made some excellent points using well-rounded arguments and evidence.

Finally we finished off with some art linked to topic, using different mediums to create logos in the 'Pop Art' style of Andy Warhol.

Enjoy the pictures!
