This afternoon we had our first extended period of time on our Passion Projects. It is so exciting to see the motivation of these students - bringing resources from home, continuing their learning at home, asking for more time on this learning! We have such a variety of projects, check out some below.

This morning our Year 6s were pushed incredibly hard when learning about the patterns involved in Shakespeare's sonnets. We learnt that they had to have 14 lines, each line has 10 syllables and were also written in an Iambic Pentameter rhythm that has feet! We worked really hard bouncing ideas off each other to try to make sure each line of our shared poem had 10 syllables - this was the hardest - Simone and Rosa got particularly frustrated! But we didn't give up and we wrote this together! Aren't we amazing?
A seed of life is planted in a void
Fragile, innocent, not knowing dangers
Emerging from a cocoon of darkness
A shield is broken, letting the light in
Sprouting petals of colour and beauty
Spreading happiness and joy to the world.
But deep inside a longing grows for more
Joy replaced and greed is released throughout
Nothing stands in its way as it terminates
Emotions wither and fear consumes all
Rapidly increasing, everything wilts
Until all is lost and darkness takes over
A loud cacophony of emptiness
Is silenced by the conductor of death.

A huge thank you to all the parents, grandparents and friends who came to our celebration of learning yesterday. Your children loved sharing their planets, their writing, their poetry and their art with you. We appreciate your continued support of their learning this term, we know you are proud of them and they are proud of themselves.
Enjoy your holidays,
Tamara and Alice.
