Your child has brought home an invitation for you to join our Fab Finish celebrations this Friday, 14th December @ 1:45pm.
We will be showcasing some of the fabulous work children have been doing as part of our 'A Child's War' imaginative learning project, as well as getting adults involved in some make-do-and-mend Christmas crafts.
We will also be making our annual trip to St Nicolas Church on Kings Norton Green for our carol service next Tuesday, 18th December, starting at 10am. If any parents wish to attend, please meet us at the Church by 9:45am.
There will be no spelling test until after half term when the spelling race track will start again. Please can you encourage children to read their home reading journals and fill in their journal for the chance to win a prize and reading certificate.
Care home visit
I am so proud of the wonderful group of Year 6 children who sang at the local care home Elliot House. The singing was outstanding and your behaviour, manners and kindness even more so. The smiles on the residents faces as we left due to each and everyone of you will stay with me for a long time. I have left school an extremely proud teacher- thank you! Unfortunately, I also left school without the camera to upload the pictures of our visit, so I’ll do that for you on Monday! Have a lovely weekend! X
A visit from Auntie Edna
A massive thank you to Stuart's Auntie Edna (and Mum), who visited school today, to talk to Year 6 about life in WW2. She told us all about life as an evacuee and the children gained so much knowledge.
Here we are asking lots of questions and making notes- we also had time for a little sing song.
Heads together and solving riddles- can you work out the answers???
A fantastic week! (16.11.18)
Well done 6D another busy week and sooo many sugary cakes consumed yesterday. I’m sure you’re all having a lovely rest- you definitely deserve it!
Thank you to all the parents who came to
our Inspire workshop on Thursday and all the wonderful comments we received.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I cannot wait to read another chapter of Boy in Striped Pyjamas with you on Monday :)
WOW STARTER (9.11.18)
A fantastic start to our topic- A Child's War!
We watched the film 'Goodnight Mr Tom' in the hall with all of Year 6 and ate some yummy hotdogs!
We then made our own evacuee labels and baked cookies following a recipe from a rationing book.
Such a fun Friday- see you all on Monday!
JUST TO LET YOU KNOW....
A reminder for parents.
YEAR 6 ENGLISH INSPIRE: THURSDAY 15TH NOVEMBER.
We would love to see you all there.
A letter will be sent out in the first week back after half term regarding times.
IT'S NOT FAIR!!!
The poem we read today was so odd! It only has three words- IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!
We played snowball and wrote down all the reasons different characters in our class book 'Pig Heart Boy' would say those three words. We then had to choose a snowball and write back to the character.
I'm soooo impressed!!! (22.10.18)
I just want to say a massive well done to all of 6D for your class assembly on Friday. We didn't have long to put it together due to illness and the topic lessons we needed to finish. However, you did an amazing job! Fantastic acting and singing AND the information was so clear. I know our audience were also very, very impressed!!! A fantastic finish to a wonderful half term.
'Just go with the flowwwww...'
Life saving afternoon
Today 6D worked really hard to research a chosen animal.
We have been reading the book 'Pig Heart Boy' and we are all fascinated by the fact that a pig heart is used to save a young boy's life.
This got us thinking about animal testing and what animals are used. This will lead into a piece of non-narrative writing on our chosen animal.
Here are some pictures of us working very hard in our English research lesson.
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE... We love a Thursday!!! (6.9.18)
