Dear Year 6
We are looking forward to seeing you for our final week next week! It has been so lovely to see more of you in school.
Please remember to bring your scrapbook if you took it home, as well as a large carrier bag because you will be taking your books home too!
Thank you and well done for all your hard work during this time of remote learning.
We hope to see you next week for a memorable end to primary school!
The Year 6 Team
Hello Year 6!
We hope that you have had a good week, enjoying the warm weather but also keeping yourself safe in the sun. In school it has been very warm, such a contrast from last week when the playground flooded!
We hope that you have started thinking about what to put into your happiness boxes. Don’t forget you can watch Miss McLoughlin’s wonderful video and explanation of her happiness box on the school website. Simply visit the Covid-19 tab on the school website, it is the video at the top. We can’t wait to see what you have chosen to put in yours.
This week Home Learning has changed a little. You have Lockdown Challenges to complete! They are activities that will help you to connect with others and yourselves. Your Go Big Be Awesome booklet is also included.
If you would like to continue with Maths and English these are also in the pack following your challenges. In maths we continue with algebra. English links to the Year 6 Talk for Writing Booklet.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful videos you sent us. We have started to compile them and look forward to sharing them with you soon.
Perhaps you can help your parents to choose a couple of photos for the Moment in Time project.
We hope you have a good week, from Mrs Minty and Mrs Warman
If you would like your picture to be added please send to the school email address.
After a good first night’s sleep, the children enjoyed a hearty breakfast before getting ready for the morning’s activities. Split into two groups, the children enjoyed ‘Buggy Building’ and The Challenge Course’. Already the instructors have commented on the children’s excellent team work and communication skills!
NATIONAL APPLE DAY!
Apples which have changed the world: Eve's, Newton's and Steve's!
Today we have celebrated 'Apples'- a very special fruit! We looked at the story of 'The Forbidden Fruit', Newton's law of gravity and how 'Apple' shapes today's technology. The children then made 'Toffee Apple Crumble Muffins' with Mrs Lynch!
22nd October 2019- Day of Colour!
Today we reflected on Missio 2019. What do all our continents offer us and what is our individual mission in our global community?
The children have also spent today baking with Mrs Lynch, they have made cookies which will be decorated like our planets- they are even in size order! We hope you enjoy these (if the children haven't eaten them before they get to the gate!!!)
We had a wonderful week celebrating all different kinds of music. Our focus across the school was to give children the opportunity to really listen and appreciate a range of music. We sang altogether, looked at songs which told stories, created our own musical instruments, had visitors just to name a few activities!
Each class focussed on a genre, ours was Rock and Roll! We loved listening to Rock through the decades, and were amazed at how much is has evolved! We even learnt and performed 'We will Rock You' using our bodies as instruments!
