Welcome to Year 6
Wow! Week 4 already, the children have settled back into school well, learning new routines and adapting to a new way of learning.
This week we have been thinking about our safety while online, taking part in a whole school e-safety poster design competition. The winning class poster will be displayed in class and the overall winning poster will be displayed around school.
This week during our computing session the children recapped their basic skills. They opened a Word document inserted a picture and saved it.
We have worked together to create an Eagle for our whole school display on 'After the Fall' To make the Eagle we used feathers and paint for the wings, layered gold paper for the body and with pastel used our mark making skills for the legs.
Today (Thursday) our children were very lucky to be presented with a beautiful Dictionary by Norma Johnston President of The Rotary Club Weston and David Ray our Chair of Governors. The children will use their Dictionaries in class during the year and then take them on to secondary school.
Friday afternoon and it's our second PE session of the week. The children took part in a warm up session, then onto an activity where they had to focus and react as quickly as possible. A great game of throw tennis completed the session.
This week the children have had their first P.E session with Bex. Over the next term the children will be looking at their personal fitness and conditioning, focussing on their personal best.
Today we designed and tested paper planes, thinking about fair testing, remembering to only change one variable. This is linked to our class focus 'After The Fall'
Which paper plane flew the furthest?
In English this week the children have been creating poems inspired by 'After The Fall'
We have had a wonderful first day back to school, the children have been enthusiastic and ready to embrace Year 6.
As a class we thought carefully about our learning charter, discussing our rights, responsibilities, rewards and possible consequences as a team. We then generated our learning charter which is displayed in our class.
How will this charter help us to achieve our goals?
This afternoon the children took part in team games outside, we focused on moving in different ways while communicating efficiently to work as a team.
The children came into an activity based on building self esteem and self worth.
You are eggcellent!
Today the children have been following written instructions in Maths to play dice games. These games focused on our place value, times table and addition and subtraction knowledge.
The children took part in their first 'real PE' session, this is a new PE scheme that we are following as a school. In today's session the children's focus was ball skills.
- How to keep the ball moving.
- Keeping our heads up and looking forward.
- Concentrating on how to perform the movements smoothly to begin with and then increase our speed.
We were also trying to use different tactics and strategies to see what worked well, tried thinking ahead to see where space was and thought about how we know when we are successful.
What a fantastic start to Year 6 !
