Together at Waterside

During our Together at Waterside project we have been learning about the artist - Bridget Riley. She is famous for her black and white paintings as well as producing a lot of Op Art. We used different methods to create our own black and white images. If you look closely you can see different shapes and patterns in our work.

We also explored the 5Rs and showed how they can be applied to multiple aspects of our learning. There has been a lot of reflection over the last two days to help us become more independent learners.

Hello and welcome to Year Six.

Our first topic is about being  Fit for Life which is a very important aspect of making healthy life choices.  Over the summer, we would like you to research staying healthy.

You may present your findings in any way you would like.  For example, you could take photographs of you exercising, create a food or exercise diary, a poster or powerpoint presentation about healthy life style choices or something more creative like a game e.g. Operation style - learning the body parts. 

As part of our responsibilities in year six, you will have the opportunity to become a house captain, vice house captain, sports ambassadors, Eco Team and School Council members. We will be presenting our speeches as part of Community Friday so that the children within the houses can have a democratic vote for their captain. Please write your speech in preparation to be recorded upon your return so these can be shared electronically with the other class bubbles. 

We look forward to sharing your ideas when we come back to school in September.


Enjoy your summer holidays.
