To start the week off, we had a whole school assembly where we had the opportunity to learn and understand more about the impact of bullying on others. Following that, we joined our house teams throughout the school and used the colour of our house to make a slogan, poster and design which represented everything that we believed in.
In English this week, we are focusing on a story which is called 'Freddie and the Fairy'. It is about a fairy who is deaf and the difficulties that she faces in understanding what Freddie wants. Once we had read the book, we spoke about our likes, dislikes, confusions and thoughts.
After lunch, we took part in two different PSHE lessons. The first was to look at different scenarios and decide if and why they were bullying. The second was to plan a very exciting session that we will be teaching to the younger years.
Stay tuned for more throughout the week!
During our Art sessions, we made Blitz pictures. We did this by blending colours to create a colour wash using water paints. Please see
pictures of our finish product below.
This week, we have introduced 'The Oscars'. A scheme of work all about Biographies. The children have been told that they are to research, during lessons, someone who they think is influential. They have to be either the following:
By Monday 16th, all children must tell me who they want to research and why.
On the 29th November, we would love to invite all parents to come into school at 2:45 to hear presentations from the children about their particular person. We hope that you can join us.
Please ensure that every child brings an appropriate book to school for reading sessions. These books should be labelled with the child's name and the children will be responsible for these.
Thank you for yor your continued support,
Before the children began, our Head boy and Head girl led us in a t'fillah and once our assembly had concluded the children sung a school song.
We are now at the RAF museum... stay tuned for updates!
We have had another fantastic week in Year 6.
In English, we have been focusing on our figurative language and applying what we have been taught to different openings. We have also learnt how to write cohesively. Next week, we will be looking at punctuation and how we can use these correctly in our writing.
In maths, we have extended our understanding of place value to decimals. Here, we have applied our understanding to different investigations and reasoning questions.
We also began our unit of work on Electricity and the World Wars.
The children must come into school with a book from home to read with on Monday.
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom and a very lovely weekend,
Welcome back to what's been a fantastic week in Year 6. The children have come back fully prepared to start what is going to be a wonderful year!
This week, the children have enjoyed finding their new lockers, new and exciting displays in the classroom to assist in their learning and our new timetable routine.
In English this week, we have been reading the book Matilda and looking at the openings to different stories. Through shared and independent writing, the children have developed their figurative writing describing both character and settings. Additionally, the children have begun their SPaG ( spelling, punctuation and grammar) sessions where they have investigated different types of nouns.
In Maths, we have begin to investigate place value which we will be continuing next week and furthering our understanding to decimals.
From next week, the children will be beginning their history topic on the World Wars, their science unit on Electricity and their daily Guided Reading sessions.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend,
