Class 6M’s review of the week,

By Emma and Nell G

Art

In art we enjoyed drawing pictures to represent our personalities. We used bright and colourful pens and crayons to make our images stand out. Furthermore, we used contouring and black pens to outline.

Science

In science we learnt about evaluation and inheritance by drawing pictures of the evolution of either an insect, bird or a reptile. We watched a video of how a fish turned into a human and amazingly it evolved through most animals!

D.A.R.E

This week we started DARE. D.A.R.E  stands for drugs,  abuse, resistance, education. There are four different children that need our help solving problems. Each week we will help a child make some difficult decisions.

Topic

Overall, our highlight of the week had to be the Topic day! We loved the dancing, dressing up and trying different food. We can’t wait to get started with the Ancient Greeks!

A message from Miss Massey:

After your brilliant start last week, you have continued to be exceptional and conduct yourselves as true role models. Keep it up Year 6!

Well 6M... WHAT A BRILLIANT 1ST DAY!

You have been the talk of the staff room! All the adults could talk about was the impeccable behaviour, enthusiastic attitude and polite and respectful manner of the new Year 6. Keep it up! If you continue as you started today, we are going to have an INCREDIBLE year :)

This week's homework:

Due Monday 11th Sept- On Monday, please bring to class your favourite poem or book, fiction or non-fiction (ensure the page that hosts your favourite paragraph is bookmarked).

Due Friday 15th Sept- This Friday you will be given your 'magpie book'. Please cover it and decorate it in anyway you like to make it truly yours and individual :)

Optional Student Council  speech, due Fri 8th Sept- If you would like to run for Student Council to represent 6M, please prepare your short speech to present to the class on Friday 8th September. 

Optional House Captain speech, due Mon 18th Sept- If you could like to run for House Captain (sorry, last years captains cannot apply), please prepare your short speech to present to the members of your house on Monday 18th September. 

Upcoming dates for your diary:

Monday 11th September- Meet the Teacher 2:45pm

Useful info:

PE:-

6M PE days are Monday and Tuesday (subject to change). Please ensure you have an indoor and outdoor PE kit (including a plastic bag for muddy shoes) in school, hair is tied up on PE days and jewellery is easily removable. 

Homework:-

Big Spell: Please learn your Big Spellings at home ready for the weekly Friday test. To move onto the next list you must achieve full marks or just 1 wrong. If you lose your spelling list, don’t worry! Just grab yourself another list from the spelling basket in our classroom.

Mathletics: Set on a Friday, due in the following Thursday. REMEMBER; Use good old fashioned pen and paper to do your workings out. Just because the homework is screen based doesn’t mean all the activities are mental maths  :)

Literacy: Set on a Friday, due in the following Thursday.

Reading: Please read a minimum of 3 times a week. This year instead of recording your individual reads in your planner, we'd like you to record when you have completed a whole book. Under the correct date write the author, book title and give it a rating out of 5. When you're back in the classroom, please transfer this info onto your individual reading journey page (I will be checking this.) If you absolutely LOVED the book, complete a book spine for 1 Super Star Point or a detailed book review for 2!

Stuck for what to read next? Take a look at www.lovereading4kids.co.uk . You can search by author, genre, age or recommendations, but that's not it! You can also read the first chapter of a book to see if it's your cup of tea. Brilliant!

Lost your homework? Has the dog eaten it? Did it spontaneously combust? Not to worry! In our classroom is the homework folder hosting plenty of spares. Just help yourself.

If you have any queries or questions about homework, please just grab me in the playground or drop me an email :)
