Weekly Update – 15.11.2019

The children have greatly enjoyed our ‘Fit Friday’ today: this morning we participated in a range of fitness exercises, including a ‘Joe Wicks’ workout. Thank you for all your donations, we raised £366!

 

Thank you to those of you who have attended parent consultations meetings; it has been great to be able to discuss with you how well your children have been getting on so far in Year 6.

 

On Monday, the children created their own Blackout Poetry on the theme of remembrance. This involved taking a page from the novel ‘War Horse’, identifying words from that page which could be used to create a poem, then colouring in the rest of the page, leaving only those words visible. The tricky part was not being able to change the order of the words, but they worked hard and we were very impressed by the final poems!

 

In Computing this week, the children were given an imitation social media profile page and had to identify safe online practices as well as any potentially unsafe behaviour. The will be further using their knowledge of E-Safety over the coming weeks to create an informative video with a specific audience in mind.

 

Maths this week has largely remained focussed on long multiplication, culminating in a collaborative Kahoot quiz this morning.

 

In English, the children have begun writing their newspaper reports about the ‘Battle of Marathon’. They will continue with these next week and we look forward to reading the finished products.

 

Thank you for sending in cereal boxes over the last few weeks. This afternoon, the children utilised these to create their own periscopes in order to investigate how light travels and what happens when it is reflected.

 

We have now received the majority of reply slips for our residential trip to Eaton Vale. We would, however, ask that any remaining forms are returned as soon as possible. If your child is not planning to attend the residential, please still return the form to confirm this is the case. 

Looking ahead, our SATs Information evening will be held on Thursday 28th November 6.00pm – 6.45pm. This is a really good opportunity to understand more about the statutory requirements and how we will prepare the children in this regard.

Our Christmas Hamper this year is “Red and Gold”. We would be very grateful for any contributions towards this which would need to be in by the 29th November. Thank you!

Have a great weekend,

The Year 6 team
