Adam Bushnell works with Year 6 inspiring them to write their own account as an evacuee during World War II. Through handling real life artefacts and listening to real life events, they were able to incorporate these ideas into their work.

Week Beginning 25th January

 

Hello my lovely Y6! 

 

I hope you all enjoyed the first chapter of our class novel: Letters from the Lighthouse. Please make sure you only read the chapters requested on the planning (only chapter 1, this week) as our weekly work will link to specific chapters. 

 

Thank you for all the fabulous pieces of art sent in- keep those coming. Some formats are trickier to convert than others, for a variety of reasons, so please bear with me as it may take a little time ( and possibly several attempts) to upload them here! There has been several issues with technology this week (and it is only Monday!!!...) so thank you your patience today.

 

Whilst on the subject.of technology, I have now loaded all your work onto Google Classrooms and sent out all your individual logins and passwords. If you get a chance this week, please have a go at logging on and seeing how it works ready to access ready for next week. From next week, you will be able to submit your work onto it. This week please send in the two pieces (highlighted on planning) on the usual email.

 

The answer to Q15 today was on the second line on page 8! If you found it, well done as this was a tricky question!! 

 

Please make sure you are looking after each other and being kind in these tricky times.

 

Missing you all enormously, 

 

Mrs. R ❤

Awesome Art From Home Learners.......Banksy Style!

We will be starting our new class novel on Monday (25th January) so please don't forget to pick up your packs from the office before next week! 😊

Well, what a term this has been, Y6! We have been presented with many challenges but, together, we have conquered them all and I couldn't be more proud of every single one of you !! You are an amazing bunch of children with the kindest hearts and unbelievably resilience and determination. Your fabulous pantomine performance, in Cinderella and Rockerfella, has been the cherry on the cake- even Simon Cowell would be impressed! It was absolutely AWESOME!

 

Thank you so much for all the beautiful cards and extremely thoughtful gifts- I feel very blessed. 

 

Have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones and be good for Santa! 

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Eye of the Storm (pilot) by Henry

This week our literacy was based around a film clip called Eye of the Storm.  The Y6 did some fabulous descriptive writing as a result which inspired some amazing artwork.

It was European Languages Day on Saturday 26th September so we celebrated this in school today (Monday 28th September). Although our focus language was French (which we designed posters and board games around), we also enjoyed celebrating and learning about other countries around the world where some of our peers are from. Henry created an awesome Powerpoint about Tremp, Tobi created a fabulous PowerPoint about Hungary and Aryam shared a super poster of Arabic numbers. 

We also shared some yummy French food and enjoyed a wonderful French and Spanish lesson with Mrs. Hamill where we sang and signed!  A brilliant day all round. 

Inspiration Quote

Hello Y6!

Yes, you are in Y6!!! Can you believe it?? Well let me tell you all now how impressed I am with every single one of you and the fabulous attitude to learning you have all shown since returning to school. I know many of you will have been very nervous about coming back (me included!!) but the determination and adaptability you have all shown has simply blown me away. I am so proud of you all already.  Let's keep this going!! 

 

Keep smiling,

 

Mrs. Richardson.
