A little message from me to my wonderful class on the 4th January 2021.
On Tuesday 1st December, Year 6 had a Victorian workshop. The children participated in a Victorian classroom, where the children followed a range of activities, including: using slates, chalk, slate pens, ink pens, abacus, charcoal drawings, explored with Victorian toys and games and more...
This week, the children in Year 6 have created their own Advent calendar with ideas about 'kindness' over the upcoming weeks. Each day has been designed by one of the children to represent how their actions can show 'kindness'. The children also reflected on their own behaviour and actions to create an Advent Promise, which has created our own class wreath.
WOW - Year 6 have truly progressed in their writing skills. This half term, Year 6 have been working on developing their diary entry writing as the character Jim from our book, 'Street Child'. The children are thoroughly enjoying our novel linked to our topic of Victorians. Overall, the children have written SIX diary entries each based on different parts of the story. Every single child has developed and shown improvements! Here are six examples of work. Diary 1 - Amber B, Diary 2 - Theo, Diary 3 - Isla K, Diary 4 - Michael, Diary 5 - Maeve, Diary 6 - Noah.
On Friday 27th November, Year 6 spent part of their 'Victorian Education' topic lesson experiencing a Victorian PE Drill. The children were brilliant and we really enjoyed this practical activity together.
On Thursday 22nd, those children who were able to be in school received their homework for the half term. Here is a copy of the Maths Booklet and 'The Baking Battle' reading challenge (Page 1-10) in case anyone requires an extra copy. All the work provided this half term includes only aspects of learning we have covered this half term. Good luck! Remember enjoy the half term and stay safe!
Congratulations to all those children who have shown their wonderful handwriting this half term and received a handwriting pen. This includes: Alex, Annabelle, Jennifer, Maeve, Maisie, Frankie, Orla and Olivia! I'm excited to see who will be next, could it be you?
For homework this week, Year 6 were asked to explore their understanding of Harvest through links with famine and CAFOD. I was overwhelmed by the effort many children put in towards creating posters, poems, songs and more. To include all their effort, I combined a range of work together - everything was from someone's homework (some phrases were swapped from different pieces to edit others). Today - 22nd October - Year 6 performed their piece to the whole school and parents at the Harvest Festival on zoom!
This week (w/c 19th October), Year 6 have worked extremely hard to develop their knowledge of 'Light'. The class are able to describe: How we see! Reflection! Refraction! Spectrum of Colour! They even managed to complete a science investigation, thinking about different variables!
Super proud of Year 6's work these past two days. They've worked tremendously hard to understand the importance of editing and up-levelling their work. Well done!
Year 6 really enjoyed demolishing their cakes today whilst raising awareness for the charity Macmillan. Thank you for all the donations!
09.10.2020 - This week the children have explored their understanding of Haworth and Leeds further through a range of activities.
Please find below our newsletter for this half term which tells you what we will be covering until October half term.
Today (2nd October 2020), Year 6 had a live stream mass with Father Peter. Frankie and Maeve had the opportunity to go to Church and read at the Mass.
Every half term, there will be new books in our favourite five section. Here we share our favourite five boxes with you. Take the opportunity to take a book from this section and have a read yourself.
In our second week back at work, our class focussed on the values of curiosity and faith. We used the book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to support our understanding of virtues and vices. As a class, we wrote a speech to share with the school.
This half term, our RE topic is Called to Serve. These pieces of creative work simply had to be shared!
These first few weeks, the children have been exploring their understanding of vocabulary and are now beginning to up-level their work to create effective sentences!
This half term children have discovered the rhymes: Never Eat Shredded Wheat or Naughty Elephants Squirt Water to help them remember their compass points. The children have also worked extremely hard this work using Ordnance Survey maps with four-figure AND six-figure grid references! Well done Year 6!
