Well done to all the children in years 5 and 6 for their tremendous hard work this term. They have been on a journey, exploring the development of the camera and how the world has changed as a result of iconic events, remarkable people and even several disasters!
Watch the video here to gain insight into their expedition and let them introduce you to the culmination of our journey: their rather impressive final product!
To begin our Christmas topic, 6CC started looking at characters from Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ and have explored the texts central character, Ebenezer Scrooge. Safe to say that Mrs Doy, Mrs Gyte and myself all had a few frights in Tuesday’s literacy lesson when the children got to reenact his character description; turns out we have some very convincing performers in our midst!
Here it is, the final product for our Autumn Expedition: ‘What does the human race owe to insects?’
The children have worked tirelessly on drafting and redrafting their written work and artwork which have yielded some quite superb outcomes.
Well done 4GC!
A huge thank you to all the staff, pupils and parents who have supported us throughout our expedition this term. The pupils have produced some absolutely amazing learning and they are extremely proud of their final product. Take a look at the video via the link below to find out more about their incredible learning journey.

Thank you to our families and staff who donated so generously with selection boxes, mince pies and biscuits. They will be a welcome addition to the Christmas food hampers which are being distributed across over 9,000 Doncaster families this Christmas period.
A quite superb effort everybody
This week, 6CC explored the process of mummification and even got to put to use their own mummy-making instructions on… a banana! The children cleansed, emptied, stuffed, cleansed (again) and wrapped their bananas before decorating them with protective jewels and amulets.
Above: 6CC’s banana mummies!
The class have also begun an scientific investigation into mummy preservation and are now studying the effects of a variety of preserving agents on a mummy (an apple). We will let you know our results next Wednesday!
Overall, another fantastic week in 6CC. Many pupils are now engaging in the homework tasks (posted bi-weekly) on Google Classroom and it is lovely to see writers putting their creative minds to the test using Google Docs and Slides to present their learning.
Week 11’s Superhero: Louis, for his spectacular peer mentorship and excellent attitude to learning, Louis constantly demonstrating a work hard, play hard attitude and continuously strives to get better and better! Well done!
