Ongoing fun 6T Projects; a prize for the best one!
a) Make the most interesting Christmas silhouette scene using the overhead projector. You will need to ask Sonny and Millie to help you! Level 3 prize!
b) Keep trying to find a riddle to outwit Mr. Timson! Points to you, and a prize for the best one!
Five children have not outwitted me but one has!
Ryley: A white box without hinges, key or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.
Dylan: What is black when you buy it, red when you use it and grey when you bin it? Took a while!
Dylan: What is owned by you but used more by everyone else?
Ryley: Bob and James go the restaurant on Friday. Neither one pays and they leave safely. Who paid?
Liam: What has an 'e' at the beginning, an 'e' at the end, but only one letter?
Sofia: What is always in front of you but you can't see, hear, touch, taste or smell it?
c) Mr Timson has a "magic 5p".
Not that magic, really, to be honest. I'll show you a trick that you will probably figure out very quickly, as you are so clever.
But... can you create a better trick than I did?
d) A well-known riddle

Nativities for KS1 have started. Thank you to Dylan, Ruby, Braydon and Amelia for your help, and for giving up your own time.
We all had a fantastic time at PGL. Everybody was well behaved and the staff at PGL wanted us to know that Norbreck was one of the politest and most helpful/ enthusiastic groups that they had worked with for a long time. Well done, Year Six.
