Star of the Week Awards - 15th September
Star awards this week go to Ariana and Layton. Layton earned the 'Writer Award' for his contribution in class when writing our explanations of how to survive in the wild. Ariana has been award the 'Star Award' for being a superb class member and always helping out. Well done Ariana and Layton.
We have been learning about the Jewish New Year - Rosh Hashanah. In class, we made promises for the future and thought about anything we should be sorry for just like the Jewish community do during Rosh Hashanah. We enjoyed partaking in their custom of eating apples covered in honey for a sweet new year. Year 6 are looking forward to sharing their learning, as as part of their class assembly, with their parents on Thursday 21st September at 9.10am
Star of the Week Awards - 8th September
Everyone has settled in well so it made it difficult to chose who was to earn an award. Well done everyone, keep up the great work. Katelyn and Kian have both impressed Mrs Sahw and I this week. Katelyn has shown us her true potential within reading and was awarded the 'Reader Award'. The 'Star Award' went to Kian for persevering when he found things a little challenging - a great attitude to have.
Year 6 Survival Day
To help us understand how challenging surviving alone on a desert island, just like our main character from our class novel must do, we spent an afternoon with Sam and Sarah from Sc.out.ed. We learnt how to be resourceful by using our lovely wood to hunt for natural resources to build a lean-to shelter. Before going out to build our shelters, we shared our knowledge and thoughts about what we needed to survive. We agreed that water, shelter, heat and food and the most important. We learnt about the fire triangle and our mature behaviour meant we could light our own fires after we gathered our own tinder. We cannot wait to get back to class and use our day to stimulate some writing.
We are looking forward reading our novel written by Michael Morpurgo. We have already
made some brilliant predictions about the story and learnt some knew vocabulary from the blurb. We now all know what odyssey means.
Our Key Task
This term we will be learning all about volcanoes, both in the past and those which affect life today. We will be looking in detail at the disaster in Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius erupted and the devastation that it caused.
Each class has a key task for this term which will bring together our learning across the curriculum. Our key task is to design an evacuation plan to deal with the eruption of a volcano in order to save lives. It will take lots of thinking about potential problems, dangers and solutions in a dramatic and dangerous situation. We hope that we get the plan right: Lives depend upon us!
School Council Representatives
Congratulations go to both Anna and Logan for being chosen by the class to do this very important job. They both gave some fantastic reasons as to why they would be the perfect people for the job.
Well done to Katelyn and Lennon who were elected by the class to be our eco rangers.
Class Charter and Class Rights
To ensure we have a happy and successful classroom we formed our class charter together along with our class rights.
Settling into the Demands of Year 6
After a lovely summer break, the children have settled nicely into Year 6. It has been lovely to see how calm the children have been and how eager they are to make a success of Year 6.
We are beginning to establish good reading habits whereby the children should be reading at least 3 times at home each week. Please write a comment in your child's reading log to let us know how your child read. They are expected to bring their reading books and logs to school everyday and take them home each night.
Over the year, I am sure the children will really rise to the challenges of Year 6 and their added responsibilities. I am looking forward to getting to know the children as individuals and I am sure that we will have much fun learning together over the course of this year.
Please contact me if there is anything you wish to discuss.
Move Up Day
We had a lovely day getting to know each other during our 'Move Up Day'. We told each other a little bit about ourselves and created a silhouette of ourselves and filled it with what makes us, us. Alongside this, we thought about what we wish Year 6 brings and made a wish. It was lovely to hear what the children wish for and what they would like from a teacher.
