Tree Planting (19.11.19)

After being rained off last week, today 6H finally got chance to plant our trees on the field. Although the soil was a little wetter than we would have liked, we still managed to get the last of our saplings safely planted. Now we wait with bated breath for the Broadmeadow Forest to grow!

Anti-Bullying Week (15.11.19)

Anti-Bullying Week (15.11.19) 1

This week has been Anti-Bullying Week and we have shown our support for this on Tuesday by wearing odd socks to show that being different is not a bad thing - in fact, it's exactly what makes us unique and individual! We also took part in a workshop led by the ladies from Malachi, where we thought about what we could do to stop bullying in school. We talked about red actions and words (those things that are hurtful and unkind) and how we should replace them with green actions and words (positive, helpful things that make our school such a fantastic place to be). Year 6 were incredibly mature and sensible throughout our workshop, and I think there was a lot that we have learnt that we can take forward to really make this year our best year at Broadmeadow!

 

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Inspire Workshop on Thursday - the children loved getting a chance to show off what they can do, and I know lots of parents found it really useful to get a glimpse of exactly what is expected of our children in their SATs. You are still able to order the bundles of revision books on our School Money website; if you aren't sure which bundle to go for, please come and catch one of us.

 

I have had lots of requests for copies of our homework grid and I will get some more printed out, I promise! In the meantime, I have put a digital copy on here. We have already had some amazing model Anderson shelters, and fantastic letters from evacuees. Please keep bringing it in!

 

Have a great weekend!
See you all on Monday.

A Fab Start To Our New Topic! (08.11.19)

Year 6 started our 'Conflict Part 1: A Child's War' topic by watching the moving, sometimes heart-wrenching, story of Goodnight Mr Tom. The film, set during World War II, follows young William as he is evacuated from London. It gave us a glimpse into what life as an evacuee was like during the war, and got us thinking about the impact of war on the home-front.

 

Our English lessons have been focussed around our new key text - Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Although we are only just getting into the book, we have already used it as a stimulus for creating some incredibly high-level writing, thinking carefully about word choice and sentence structure. We know Bruno is not exactly a fan of the new house at 'Out-With' but I wonder where his adventures will lead him...

 

Have a great weekend!
See you on Monday.

Beating Hearts Fab Finish Quiz 22.10.19

 

This afternoon, we held a Year 6 house quiz where children worked together to answer in three challenging rounds: multiple choice subject knowledge, TV & Film and Music. Teams were also able to earn bonus points for great team-work and cooperation, and for making great behaviour choices. The winning team got a dip in the prize box, along with a number of individuals who stood out as being fantastic team players and role models.

 

Well done Year 6, it was a great way to finish our current topic. 

I can't wait to see what fun our next topic brings!

WOW WOW WOW! 18.10.19

 

Oh my goodness me, 6H you were absolutely incredible this morning - what a brilliant Harvest Festival assembly! Incredible prop-makers; phenomenal song-writers; children willing to stand in at the very last minute and take on pretty big roles with half an hour’s notice - you should all be so proud of yourselves. 

And it was all in aid of a very worthwhile charity food-bank, so a massive ‘thank you’ to everybody who managed to bring in a food donation. I know when B30 Food bank come to collect it on Monday, they will be as thrilled as I am. You are helping to support members of our local community who are finding things a little difficult and I’ve no doubt they are incredibly grateful for your generosity. 

 

Have a great weekend, see you all on Monday for the last week of this half term. 
 

Miss Harris 😊

What a week! 10.10.19

 

I can’t wait to see all of the fantastic photos from Kingswood. I caught up briefly with Mrs Hankinson and Mr Barton, who sang the praises of everybody that went!

 

The children who stayed at school have been busy creating art inspired by the Pop Art movement, and have certainly brightened up our cloak room with their incredible self-portraits. Can you work out who’s who?

National Poetry Day 2019 - 03.10.19

 

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Day, we watched poets performing pieces all with the theme of Truth. Although, 'truth be told', we did get a little side-tracked and ended up watching some hilarious poetry by Michael Rosen and some incredibly moving poetry by a man who I think might be my new favourite poet - Tony Walsh.

We really felt the difference when listening to poetry being performed, compared to just reading it from a book. The words came alive and more than a few children talked about feeling goosebumps, being really touched by the words of the poems.

I overhead one child say it was, and I quote, "The best English lesson ever!" and I think I might have to agree!

We have had a busy week in Year 6 (nothing new there!)

In Maths, we have been looking at division, recapping bus stop division and moving on to long and short division by two-digit numbers. I was so impressed with how everybody persevered and tried their best! Well done!

Our hard work has also paid off in English this week. After planning and drafting, today was the day that we wrote our diary entries from the perspective of a character from our book, Pig Heart Boy. Everybody has shown a fantastic understanding of the character they have written as - it's like the character themselves was sat in my classroom telling me about their day!

 

A quick reminder that we do ask, even in Year 6, that children read at home to a parent or responsible adult a few times each week. Children can record this is their reading records, and we ask that you just sign to confirm. It's really important for their own writing, and to develop their vocabulary, but also just so they understand the value and enjoyment in a good book!

 

Have a great weekend,

See you all on Monday!

Another great week in 6H!

We have continued learning about our hearts this week, and have spent time researching the ways in which smoking and drinking alcohol can effect our health. Working in groups, we put together short presentations and made leaflets and posters to accompany them.

 

Our morning group have been looking at a news article about Count Scarpa, a rich Brazillian man, who decided to bury his very expensive car so that he could enjoy it in the afterlife. But all was not as it seemed, as Count Scarpa was actually making a point about the importance of organ donation. Our Guided Reading session became slightly more philosophical as we considered the impact of his stunt, and also the value of the message he was trying to convey.

 

Have a great weekend!

This week, we have continued our learning about the human heart by thinking about what our blood is actually made from. To help us with this, we made a model of human blood using water, food colouring, cheerios, marshmallows, salt and pom poms. I wonder if anybody can explain to their family what each thing represented?🤔

Welcome to Year 6!

 

We have had a fantastic start to Year 6, I have been so impressed with everybody's mature, hard-working attitudes this week. 

 

As you may already know, children work in three groups for English and Maths, and they are doing a great job of getting used to where they need to be and when. My morning group have brought home spellings, looking at different rules for changing singular nouns into plurals. Please make sure you learn these rules because you will be tested on the 5 spellings you have taken home AND 5 unseen spellings that follow the same rules.

 

We are continuing with our Homework Grids this year, and I am excited to see all the wonderful activities you choose to complete from them at home. Remember, you need to earn a minimum of 10 stars by completing different tasks on the grid. Children did bring home a copy of the grid today, but if anybody has misplaced theirs, they are available on the school website or I have spare copies!

 

A quick reminder that PE is on a Wednesday. Whilst the weather is still reasonable (touch wood!) we will be going outside if we possibly can, so please make sure you have suitable footwear for outdoor and indoor PE.

 

Although it has been a busy week of testing and getting used to new routines, we have found time for a bit of fun! Check out the photographs below of my morning group getting up and active as we practiced our times tables with Super Movers! 

 

Have a great weekend, guys!
See you all on Monday.

Miss Harris :)
