Sherlock Holmes - Hound of the Baskervilles!
Our new writing journey is going to be inspired by this famous Sherlock story. Before the text was revealed to the children, they were given some objects and needed to use their prediction and inference skills to work out what the story would be about and what the clues were telling them!
We definitely have some future detectives in our class - they were amazing at identifying what the objects may be used for or where they came from!
Regional Lego League Competition
In January, our KS2 Lego Team went to Peterborough to take part in the Regional Lego League Competition, for Year 5 and 6 children!
The team have been working since September, every week after school, to build their project which was all around "sharing our hobbies and interests" in new innovative ways using Technology and the Arts.
The children also had to design, build and program a robot to complete tasks on a giant Lego board.
They then had to present their project to a panel of judges and wow! what a fantastic job they did!
The children created their own songs with sign language, pop up shops, VR creations and a Lego-themed cake!
This year, we won 2 trophies and 2 overall categories including Best designs for our Logo, t-shirt and group area and we won the "Core Values" category for their overall team work, respect, support and professionalism.
The team were incredible Polebrook Role Models and we cannot wait to attend next year!
Year 5&C OMEC Day at Oundle School
Some of our Year 5/6 Children attend the Oundle OMEC Day on Tuesday to take part in challenging maths activities with other schools in the local area. Our Polebrook pupils were incredible respectasauruses and we are incredibly proud of how well they worked with others and challenged one another. After a day of competing against other schools and teams, one of our Polebrook teams won the overall maths treasure hunt at the end of the event and won a special prize – you superstars!
Creating Soundscapes for our Artwork
MLK have been busy creating soundscapes to go with their artwork they made before half term. In groups, they needed to create a piece of music which described their artwork. We then played the pieces of music and the children had to decide which soundscape matched which artwork! It was an incredible fabulous finish to our WW2 topic!
