5.3.20 World Book Day. Year 6 had a fantastic day with our visiting author Jo Simmons. The children had a talk from her in the morning, then a writing worshop in the afternoon. It was inspirational. In addition to this, the children shared their amazing creative masterpieces. Potatoes of all shapes and sizes were decorated, representing such an array of characters. Well done year 6 for all your hard work!

3.3.20 Year 6 book club met today and shared their finding on the books they chose last week. There were many recommendations and book swappings. The children were able to have a preview of the books written by the two authors that will be visiting Leesland as part of World Book Day.

This Tuesday saw the launch of the Yr 6 Book Club. Children came along and shared their views and opinions on a wide range of texts. These children were able to borrow one of the many new books before they go into general release within the library.

Year 6 have spent time in 'Prayer Space' this week where they have had the opportunity to reflect on the Christian values here at Leesland.

12.2.20 Several children from Yr 6 had the opportunity to represent Leesland in an inter-school multi-skill tournament at Bay House. They rotated around a variety of tasks, which included standing long jump and indoor javelin. We are incredibly proud of the way the children conducted themselves. We should hear the results shortly.

11.2.20 Yr 6 worked on the Foundations of Learning strand of collaboration when they invited Year 3 to join them for a PE session. The Yr 6 children paired up with children from each of the Yr 3 classes and taught them a range of skills. It was lovely to see children of different ages working so well together.

10.2.20 As part of our PHSE lessons, Yr 6 had a visit from our PSCO's who spoke about living as part of a community and taking a responsible role within the area we live. Anti-social behaviours were discussed, however the focus was on making the right choices. It bacame apparant that one of Leesland's Christian Values was also at the heart of an inclusive and supportive community - Respect.

Optical Illusions

What is an Optical Illusion?

Optical Illusions can use colour, light and patterns to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. The information gathered by the eye is processed by the brain, creating a perception that in reality, does not match the true image.  Optical illusions simply trick our brains into seeing things which may or may not be real.
