It’s no joke – a play about knife crime

On Thursday 4th July Year 6 went on a trip to Livingstone Primary School to watch a play with 2 other schools. It was about knife crime. We learnt about why you should never carry a knife, in case you murder or injure a person or an animal. If you see anyone holding a knife in public, you should tell an adult or the police.  Also, remember not to be a sheep.  That means don’t do something just because someone else tells you it’s cool.  If you know it’s wrong, make your own decisions because if you do something you then have to take responsibility for your own actions – you can’t get out of it by saying that someone else told you to do it.

Fiver Challenge Update

On Tuesday the 25th of June the Year 6 completed their Fiver Challenge between 3:00 to 3:30 selling to parents/carers and children. There were several different items being sold. We had to get into groups of 1 to 4. If you were working on your own you could only have £5 that you could spend but if you were in a group of 4 you could spend £20 if you wanted to. For every £5 we borrowed we had to pay £5 back and an extra 50p. Whatever we had left would be our profit. Here are our profits.

Sean’s Sundaes = £10.91

Slime pick em mix = £22.92

Crumbles = £13.70

Frozen Fun = £14.38

Silly Slime shop = £1.13

Desserties = 9p

Smoothie shake = £4.37

Yummy yoghurts = – £6.50

Treatful Treat Shakes = £3.94

As you can see, there was a lot of variation! After that, we were wondering what to do with the remaining stock so we were brainstorming ideas to find ways to make a maximum profit as a whole class.

Fiver Challenge Continued…

So far, I have decided on a name for my business and thought of what I could sell. I have completed the logo and it has been submitted to the people who run the Fiver Challenge. I have filmed a video to advertise the products that I am selling. As a class, we have decided to set up our stalls and sell our products on Tuesday 25th of June at 3:00pm in the school hall. As a class we will be selling slime, cakes, brownies, cookies, yoghurts, ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies and much more. Please come and support us.    By Halima

So far, we have made posters and leaflets. Everyone has decided what they are going to be selling. We have also decided what our logos are going to look like and what our company is going to be called. Some of us have also made some adverts about what we are going to sell. We are selling milkshakes, lemonade, popcorn, smoothies and more. Please come to support us and buy some yummy food.     By Yasmin

Fiver Challenge

Year 5 and 6 are competing in a challenge called ‘The Fiver Challenge’. The Fiver Challenge is a business challenge with a group maximum of 4 people. You first pick a product you would like to sell and come up with a product name and a logo. You have to buy what you need. You start with a budget of five pounds per person or per group so a maximum of 20 pounds. If you choose 10 pounds then at the end you will have to repay the 10 pounds plus an extra 1 pound to help other children next year in the competition. The children will only be able to sell things that they have bought, so they can’t use any school or home materials.     By Rayhan U

Punch and Judy

Punch and Judy is a puppet show full of humour and was one of the main entertainments in the seaside history of Britain.  Now the Year 6 class are making their own Punch and Judy show but to make it interesting they are making it in the modern time because the Punch and Judy show was in the olden days. The shows will start on Friday the 7th of June 2019. The year 6 pupils used different kinds of materials and made the heads out of paper mache and sewed the clothes and the legs, hands and head on. They made their own funny scripts and made their background for their scene and made a tent just like the ones  they performed in originally.
