Year 6 enjoying life back at school.

LO: To describe our feelings on returning to school.

Coming back to school makes me feel anxious yet relieved. Mixed-emotions discombobulate my mind. I am so happy I can see my class mates and my teachers again. I understand there will be changes with the Government guidelines. I woke up this morning, excited and joyful, yet when minutes passed by nerves got to me.  I trusted myself to listen to the rules and to respect the social distancing, as I always have. Here in my class I am so happy with what the teachers have done to keep us all safe, in the way we can see our friends safely.

 

Our Rules:

  • Keep your distance to keep everyone safe.
  • Trust and believe in yourself to keep the rules.
  • Always stay at your desk until the teacher asks you to move.
  • Smile to keep yourself believing.
  • Try not to use each other’s supplies to keep them and yourself safe.
  • Wash and sanitise your hands frequently so that bacteria stays away as much as possible.
  • Wash your uniform every evening so that it is clean.
  • STAY SAFE AND KEEP POSITIVE!

 

By Chloe.

Monday afternoon activities:

Get your parents to open a free account on Oxford Owl and choose an e-book to read during this week.

Make your own bird’s nest.

Today we wrote fantastic poems about Fear.

Here are some I have taken from Purple Mash:

Here's Willow's entry for the RSPB Art competition, another super entry. She has used a mixture of charcoal, white and black crayons on grey card to produce her snowy owl. What a superb picture!

Abraham has sent in his great picture for the RSPB Art competition. His inspiration was his love of sharks! He's sketched and then coloured in his sharks in their watery setting.

Here's the class biographies which you have researched and written up during your Home Learning. I'm looking forward to reading some more when you email them to me. Well done to Jack and Fraser who have sent these already.

Here's Jasmine's super art entry for the RSPB competition! Well done Jasmine, it's a brilliant likeness for a penguin. Jasmine's mum has said that she sketched it first and then sponged paint over the top, that was a great idea.

We're coming to the end of our class novel now! We hope that you have enjoyed it.

Our new class novel: The boy who made the world disappear!

 

Blurb: 

By Ben Miller

Read by Ben Miller

Harrison tries his best to be good. He doesn’t steal, he always shares with his sister and he never cheats at board games, but Harrison also has a BIG flaw … He can’t control his temper!

So when he’s given a black hole instead of a balloon at a party, Harrison jumps at the chance to get rid of everything that makes him cross. But when it’s not just things he hates that are disappearing into the black hole but things he loves, too, Harrison starts to realise that sometimes you should be careful what you wish for…

 

This looks like a great story and we can listen to a chapter or 2 of it being read to us every day.

 

https://www.worldbookday.com/stories/the-boy-who-made-the-world-disappear-by-ben-miller/

 

Today (Monday 20th) listen and enjoy the Prologue and Chapter 1

Good morning everybody! I know that we were going to live stream our first lessons today, but we're still working on getting it right for you. Here's details of the work which we were going to be doing.

 

English (9.30-10.30)

Log onto Purple Mash. We are going to read a chapter of the story 'A bridge on fire' every day this week and complete multiple choice questions about the text. After you have read and completed these, please complete the 'Activity Weekend' leaflet. The work is set in your 2Dos. Hand in and save your work so that I can mark it for you.

Remember to carefully check and edit your writing so that you are proud of your work and it is the best which you can do!

 

Spend some time practising your reading today on 'Read Theory' or enjoy a great book off your home library shelves. Try to do this outside, so you have as much fresh air as is possible. Imagine your self in St Mary's outdoor classroom with your friends around you.

Show a parent, guardian or helper your work and ask them to sign your exercise book to show that you have completed it as well as you can.

 

Feel free to try the other year groups work if you feel you are able. It's all good practise!
