First News!

As mentioned in last week's blog and as promised two class members have written their account of the week to add to the blog. Amber and Ameena have worked collaboratively and I shall post their edition after the few bits I have. 

I have spoken with the children and all should have a folder of two things that I will be putting as homework - mental arithmetic and 60 second reads with comprehension questions. We have spoken a great deal about how we need to get ourselves organised and that includes about how we share out tasks during the week. I have also explained and modelled the expectations to them as well.  The children are aiming to be more responsible for their activites and this will also help prepare them for moving on in the future. If any problems we can share these on Monday 10th when I shall be seeing you all for the Yr 6 parent appointment. As many of you know me I shall try to keep to the 10 min appointment slots as best as I can. 

Next week is of course wellbeing week, as you will have seen from the newsletter. An exciting week ahead and also a busy one for the members of Class 6 who are part of Wellbeing Crew but I know they will be very supportive to Miss Gale. From the nurses visit just last week a really good website was recommended to the children which was www.healthforkids.co.uk. 

Hope to see you all on Monday and do remember it is for both parent and child. Have a great week and now over to the girls for their section. 

On Monday this week, in Geography we were looking at a coastal disaster from a few years ago. The Holbeck Hotel disaster, where we found a garden was there and the following day was gone alongside the East Wing of the hotel. Coastal erosion can be a huge problem as we saw. We took the opportunity to write a news report or write a letter of complaint to the council to see who was to blame for such a terrible incident. 

On Tuesday we were looking at micro-organisms and have started preparing for a science investigation based on 'What does yeast like to eat?'

We did a variety of maths, comprehension and english today. In maths this took to a SATs style paper. This was not assessment week but should get us ready for it after half term. The more familiar we are the better the mindset for learning and if we have any gaps we can get some support. 

On Thursday this week in R.E we had to compare Good Friday and Easter Sunday hymns. We listened to a range of them; some we knew and others were new. From the lyrics we had to suggest why they were sung on certain days or times of the service. We also spoke about different denominations within Christianity and what we could identify from pictures. 

We watched a short film today entitled' Lighthouse'. This was appropriate since we have been working on coastal geography and also reading Kensuke's Kingdom. A lot of our written learning took place around a journalistic feel. Not only this but identifying informal and formal language, direct speech and report writing (headlines and orientations).

Reminder parents evening on Monday!
