Welcome Back Year 6

 

It has been so lovely seeing everyone back in school over the last week. We have really missed you all!

And what a week it has been!

Year 6, joined the rest of the school, as we immersed ourselves in the text 'Here We Are' written by Oliver Jeffers.

They really got their teeth stuck into written work and creative pieces. We were so proud of how well they have adjusted back into school life and routines.

We are so proud of you Year 6 - Keep up the great work.

Here is a snippet of some of the week...

Reminders 

 

PE Kit

Please make sure you wear your PE kit on Mondays and Thursday so you are ready for our lessons. 

Your kit should include dark bottoms and a plain white t-shirt (or one with the school logo if you prefer).

 

Homework

While we will not be setting homework for the rest of this term, we do expect everyone to be learning their weekly spellings, times tables and reading for 40 minutes at least 5 times during the week. A list of spellings for each week can be found below. They will also be assigned to your account on Spelling Shed.

 

Snacks

We would encourage you to bring a healthy snack for break times. Our mornings sessions are long and you need to keep your energy levels up!

 

 

 

 

Cherry Blossom Artwork

 

One of our talented Year 6 pupils took their 'Cherry Blossom' learning further and created this excel tool to build new trees. Open the document, press ctrl + A and you will formulate a tree. If you continue to press the buttons a different tree will be drawn.

Welcome to Year 6

 

So far this term Year 6 have been:

  • Enjoying about the wonders of nature; creating wonderful sketches, writing poetry and building bird boxes.
  • Immersing themselves in PE lessons, enjoying dance, gymnastics and outdoor sports such as hockey and football.
  • Dissecting hearts and learning about the circulatory system in response to the text 'Pigheart Boy' by Malorie Blackman.
  • Engaging brilliantly with learning about the Ancient Greek civilisation: creating a story-telling dance, writing mythology and loving the story 'Who Let the Gods Out' by Maz Evans.

  • Learning about light and shadow and creating some stunning art to reflect their learning.

 

It has been wonderful to see the children becoming more independent in their learning and absorbed as learners! Keep up the great work Year 6!

 

 

Please find a reminder of the homework below - check your homework diary for when each piece needs to be handed in.

Don't forget to have your homework diary ready to hand in on Monday morning.

Year 6 have choreographed this dance based on the ancient Greek myth 'Theseus and The Minotaur' during their dance lessons this half term. They have enjoyed working in such a collaborative and emotive way and were really proud to perform their dance for their Reception Buddies.
