READ ME...

A little message from me to my wonderful class on the 4th January 2021.

Victorian Day

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...

Advent 2020

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.

Harvest Festival

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!

Science - Light!

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!

15.10.2020 
This evening, I have been blown away by a magical piece of reflective writing by Amber B, a quote from her piece to inspire you all...
"I show courage by being determined to succeed in my goals. I shoot for the stars but if I miss, I land on God's world and he gives me the courage to start again!" Simply beautiful!
Literacy Team Effort by Year 6!

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!

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!

We love to independently read!

VIPERS book reviews are a great way Year 6 are showing their knowledge about the text they've read. Here is a fantastic example from Jennifer!
