Anti-bullying: change starts with us! (12-11-19)
6C had a thought-provoking anti-bullying workshop today. The session was run by Malachi and got us thinking about our words and actions. We're getting rid of any negative 'red' words (anger, distress, depression, mean etc) and being 'green'.
Conflict: A Child’s War (5-11-19)
It’s a new half term and our new ILP is ‘Conflict: A Child’s War’.
Children have already begun to bring in super homework (models of an Anderson Shelter) and the classroom display is looking fab, too.
We’ll be having our ‘wow’ starter tomorrow… Watch this space!
FAB FINISH: Beating Hearts Quiz, House Competition (22-10-19)
Year 6 got together to answer questions about the heart. We had rounds on Science, Music, TV and Film and worked in Houses.
It was lovely to see so many children take part with the right spirit and rewards were given to children who made good choices in terms of sportsmanship, co-operation and attentiveness. Take a look at the pics that we took...
Tuesday Guided Reading in Set 6C: why we're loving the library... (22-10-19)
We're all feeling so much more 'into' reading thanks to having a chilled out space in which to relax and immerse ourselves in what we're reading. The positive feeling about getting down to the library is definitely something to do with the wide choice of texts. We're also getting much better at exploring and choosing the books we read. Ace!
LO: To play and perform in an ensemble. (14-10-19)
We discussed what ‘pulse’ and ‘rhythm’ meant and watched a video of body percussion, using bars of 4 beats.
We considered the human heart beat and how to replicate the sounds using our bodies. After a quick brainstorm of ideas, we got into groups, rehearsed and performed our compositions.
Taking a Look at Next Week... (14-10-19)
In English, Set 6C will be looking at newspapers. In Maths, we're continuing to broaden our understanding of fractions.
Wednesday - remember to bring swimming kits!
Thursday - bring PE kits, thanks.
Tuesday 15th and Thursday 17th October - book an appointment slot for parents' evening with your set teacher!
Friday - homework deadline for 'Beating Hearts' topic.
Jigsaw: Being a Global Citizen (1-10-19)
We've been talking about children's needs and wants (understand that sometimes, these are different things).
What do you think a child is entitled to? Shelter, food and drink, safety, love, clothing...
6C Class Assembly (26-9-19)
Wow! What an assembly!
* you can't expect RESPECT unless you give RESPECT
* we all have the right to feel RESPECTED
Mrs Gaynor and other teachers - as well as a parent, I might add - have all been saying that 6C's class assembly about respect was great fun! I'm so proud of all the kids for their contributions and making it natural and enjoyable.
We had a powerful message to deliver, but we did it in style. :)
The Parts of Blood - wow! (9-9-19)
This week, 6C re-created the parts of blood using a variety of ingredients! I never thought I'd see cereal and marshmallows bobbing about in a jar of food colouring this week! It was fascinating to find out that blood is yellow (plasma) but all the platelets make it appear red.
And we're off to a great start! (5-9-19)
We're off to a fantastic start in Year 6 this week. Mr Barton and Miss Case have welcomed 6C to the new school year and our first new topic, Beating Hearts, has begun. Look out for the wow starter next week (teaser: human blood!!!). Yikes. Miss Case will be teaching the class on Mon - Thursday morning. Mr Barton takes over for the rest of the week on Thursday afternoons.
Swimming (this half term only): Please ensure children have swimming kits in school on this day of the week.
