Miss Duke

Welcome to Sixth Class…

October was a super busy month for us, we wanted to share some of our super cool experiences with you.

We had the chance to take part in an interview with David Walliams!! He was super funny and witty. He gave us lots of top tips for our writing – we can’t wait to put them into practice.

We had a wonderful week for Maths Week – we enjoyed lots of ‘real life’ Maths and fun activities. We even got to help Miss Duke with her Christmas shopping! We love Maths trails and challenges, we decided to create our own ‘Solve me’ puzzles which had an ’emoji’ equation inside. We have placed them around the school and encouraged students to get involved!

We learned all about the Native Americans and we were fascinated by how important the buffalo was to them. We couldn’t believe that the buffalo tongue was used as a hair brush! We really enjoyed sharing these facts with our classmates!

We were thrilled to take part in the Garter Lane workshop, we studied the painting ‘Starry Night’ by Vincent Van Gogh and we used this painting to inspire our versions, the results were amazing. We loved all of our Halloween art too, especially our super spooky Tim Burton inspired selfies!

We worked so hard over the past few weeks, so hard in fact that we earned our S’more Party! They were the messiest, tastiest treats in all the land!


We are delighted to be back together in Room 18 with all of our lovely friends and our teacher Miss Duke, we welcomed our new friend Shi Lei to our class also! We can’t believe we are in our final year of primary school!

We have had a very busy few days! We have been focusing on working together as a team and we have been doing lots of interesting activities from STEM challenges to Communication tasks. We loved completing the Stacking Challenge – we were so happy with how well we worked together and couldn’t believe what we managed to achieve. It is really true what they say – team work makes dream work’.

We started our first research task this week also, our first task was based on our  ‘A typical scientist’ drawing activity.  16 out of the 20 girls in our class drew male scientists! We wanted to show that women could be scientists too and we wanted to acknowledge the wonderful work that women in science have accomplished.

Our first art piece of the year was a remembrance piece in honour of the 20th Anniversary of 9/11. We will be keeping the victims of 9/11 and their families in our thoughts and prayers this week.

We were thrilled going over to Walsh Park on Wednesday! We played lots of games and enjoyed some team races.

Stay tuned for more of our exciting adventures!
