“Endless opportunities to learn, laugh, aspire, thrive & fly”

Year 6

In science we had great fun creating and playing 'loop games'. We looked at and discussed why these worked. Ask the children to explain them to you. See pictures 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:

 

-politician

-musician

-actor 

-sportsperson

 

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.

For those parents who have asked for help with choosing a suitable reading book for their child, please see the attached reading list which has mild, medium and hot options.

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,

 Wow, what a fantastic start to the day! The children shared with the school aspects of what they've been learning about. Thank you to all those parents who came to watch this morning. It was great to share our learning with you. 

 

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!

A short but wonderful week in Year 6! The children have worked exceptionally hard in maths, where we have applied our learning of negative numbers. Each and every child has challenged themselves through investigations, application questions and reasoning. 

In English, we have begun a three week unit of work on 'Way Home', a rich descriptive picture book. Here, our focus is to identify structure of sentences, language and devices used and how to build cohesion successfully. The children are working towards writing the following chapter and will have ample opportunity to prepare themselves for this, both through working in groups, shared writing and independent writing. 

I have been so impressed with the presentation and care the children are taking of their books and the pride that they have in their work.

I have not set homework this week as I am aware that many families will be spending quality time together. Lastly, I would like to wish you and your families a very happy and healthy new year. I hope that 5778 is as successful as this year. 

Shana Tova,

Miss Fox
This afternoon we were privileged to meet a kindertransport survivor (Rafi Martin's great-grandmother).  Her daughter Judy spoke about her mother's experiences of the Kindertransport in 1939. She gave a brief account of her mother, Edith's life in Germany before the war, then a little about the restrictions imposed on Jews in Germany and then a brief mention of Kristalnacht leading up to Edith being sent away to England on the Kindertransport. The children had the opportunity to hear from Edith and ask her questions. Please see photos below and videos of Edith talking to the children

In science today the children investigated how to change the speed of a motor. They recorded their findings in diagrams using conventional symbols. Please see photos below.

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,

 

Miss Fox

Yesterday , we were lucky enough to be joined by Daniel Bernard. He was an old Clore Shalom student, who recently competed in the Basketball at the Special Olympics and won gold. These were held in Sheffield. He shared with the class his experiences and his next goals. We hope to see him when he's won another.

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, 

 

Miss Fox.
