Class Blog for Year 6B

Have a well deserved weekend! 

We would like to say a huge thank you, for all of the transporting of bikes during the last number of weeks - because of this we are able to say CONGRATULATIONS to all of the children, for completing their advance bike ability sessions!

Next week we are going to be completing our second set of SATs practice papers. We have discussed this with the children and reminded them; it is so that we can identify any gaps we may need to cover: not to worry about them!

We are beginning to put together a little Christmas performance for you all: please could 6K bring in woolly hats/scarves/gloves/ear muffs next Thursday (3rd) and could 6B bring in Christmas jumpers/flashing earrings/tinsel etc (for the same date).

Homework is uploaded below.
Have a great weekend - the festive break is in sight!

Well done to everyone on a very successful week.

We have been busy practising using long multiplication and it has been great to see your confidence grow with the method over the week.

In English, we have enjoyed watching Alma and thinking about different genres of writing. We are already excited to see the amazing writing you will produce at the end of the unit.


Bikeability:
The final session will take place on Monday. Please bring gloves and a waterproof coat.

PE: Please remember PE kits on Wednesday. 

Christmas Card Fundraiser: Thank you to everyone who has already returned their orders. A reminder that if you would like to order any of the items, the deadline is Monday.

Extra layers: As the weather gets a bit cooler, please ensure everyone has enough layers to keep them warm. We understand that the classrooms are also getting cold with the doors and windows open so you can also bring extra layers to wear in the classroom. Although we are now spending most of our break times on the playground, a change of shoes can still be brought into school incase of any wet shoes.

Homework:
Maths - complete the long multiplication questions 

Use the youtube links for a demonstration should you need it.
Log on to Prodigy and TTRS

SPaG - pgs 38-39 (sentence practice)

Reading comprehension - Cuchullan, which is also attached below (with the answers to check your work after)

You should also be reading every day at home and practising your spellings.

Have a fabulous week! Miss Kite, Mrs Birch, Mrs Tamblyn, Mrs Goldsmith x

This half term has already kicked off to a great start with more Bikeability training and Christmas card making this week (a very early start to the festive season!) In the next week or 2, the children will all receive a sample copy of their Christmas card designs and will be given the opportunity to order some cards, gift tags and much more, so please keep an eye out for further information on this.

Bikeability will continue over the coming weeks (2 sessions for 6K and 3 sessions for 6B) weather dependent.

We are very lucky to be given he opportunity to learn violins from this half term until February. This will begin on Monday.

HAPPY HALF TERM 

.....and just like that, a half term is over!!!

Huge well done to every single one of you - we have had a brilliant start to Year 6 and we are very much looking forward to the rest of the year together.

Apologies for the postponed bike ability for 6B this week - we will reschedule this for after half term and let you know the dates as soon as possible.

Homework:

Maths - complete the place value sheet, which is also attached below. Use the youtube links for a demonstration should you need it.

SPaG - pgs 24, 25, 26 (active and passive voice)

Reading comprehension - sheet about Joe White, which is also attached below (with the answers to check your work after)

History - Please research as much information about Boudicca as you can. We will be using this information to complete our biographies when we return after half term. Think about the information we will need; linked to the key features of a biography (attached below).

Please continue to learn your spellings and read as often as you can. Year 5/6 statutory spellings are attached below.

After half term Year 6 PE will only be on a Wednesday - please come to school on a Wednesday in your PE kits. 6B will be doing wildtribe in the Spring term, not after half term! We are also really lucky to be learning the violin in Year 6! These music lessons will begin after half term and continue for 11 weeks, after which we are hoping to offer a performance to you all. Whether this will be in the playground, the hall or online, we are unsure yet but will confirm nearer to that time.

Remember we have a staff training day on the Monday but look forward to seeing you all on the Tuesday.
Have a fabulous half term break and stay safe!

Week beginning 19/10/20

Wow! What a busy week we have had in Year 6 this week.

It was amazing to see the time and effort that went into producing excellent costumes for our Roman Day this week. Great fun was had learning how to eat like a Roman, dress like a Roman, build like a Roman, slay like a Roman and think like a Roman!

Bike Ability was a huge hit and all the children who took part were successful and can now move on to the next level.

6B will do complete their next session on Wednesday 21st October. 6K will complete their next session on Thursday 22nd October.

6K will also have their last session of Wild Tribe on Monday. Please refer to the information booklet sent out last week and ensure your child is appropriately dressed for the activities.

Homework has gone home today. Please remember to check the answers on the blog once the homework is complete. In addition to this, please continue to practise spellings, Times Tables and reading daily.

As we approach the half term, we look forward to a final week of excellent learning before a well-deserved rest.

Have a lovely weekend :) Miss Kite, Mrs Birch, Mrs Goldsmith and Mrs Tamblyn.

Week beginning 28/9 

Dear year 6,

As we enter another week, we would like to reflect on your great learning from last week! We have been really impressed with the mature attitudes and willingness of you all, to do your very best in class. You are definitely an excellent cohort to represent the school in your final year at St Cleer!

Last week we sent home quite a handful of homework - a reminder that it should be handed in by Wednesday please. The SPaG activities are topics we have covered in class during the week so you are being given the opportunity to consolidate your learning. Maths - read the questions carefully. Comprehension - remember your VIPERS skills.

Please continue to read and practise spellings as often as possible and to/with an adult when you can.

We began a new unit of Science last week - Light! You already have so much knowledge so we will continue to work together to ensure we  cover elements you are interested in, as well as new areas so that knowledge knowledge is broadened.

We are about to leap into our new learning adventure topic, which is the Romans - we staff are all very excited to be teaching this, as it comes with so much History that can be adapted into art, music, geography and PE!!

This week, we will be assessing you with some further 'tests'. While we realise you can find these quite daunting, it is our aim to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident, before you are faced with bigger exams; progress through your lives.

Coming up.......
* We will be having a 'Roman Day' (date to be confirmed but during the week commencing 5th October). Please think about what you may come dressed up as...... we already have our thinking caps on! We will enjoy a day of 'Roman themed' activities - more info to follow soon!!
* Please remember to come to school in PE kits on a Monday and Wednesday.
* Thank you so much for all of the cereal boxes - we now have enough! Could we please beg for large pieces of cardboard now?! As large as possible, so that we can make some 'good sized' Roman shields! Thank you!

Have a great week - we are looking forward to another constructive one; full of exciting learning opportunities.

Mrs Birch, Miss Kite, Mrs Tamblyn and Mrs Goldsmith :) 

 


WELCOME BACK...........and into Year 6!! 

Well, we can't actually believe we are going to be together again in the classroom after such a long time!! We are all very excited in Year 6 - excited to be back, excited to have you back and excited about all the fun and interesting plans we have throughout the term!

Mrs Birch, Miss Kite, Mrs Tamblyn and Mrs Goldsmith have been extremely busy during the last week preparing the classrooms, cloakroom areas and social distancing guidance! We hope you have managed to watch Mrs Spencer's youtube video which explains drop off and collection in more detail too.

https://youtu.be/rUDvYa7-nk4

We hope you have had a fantastic Summer break - it may have been a slightly 'different' one but we have had some good weather and a bit more freedom! I have continued to participate in open water swimming and was able to complete a 14km virtual open water event. I went to places like the beach (various different ones on both the South and North coasts), rivers and lakes and outdoor pools. It has been a great experience and a chance to visit different areas around Cornwall and Devon! 

On Monday we will have PE. I realise this is short notice so you may not read it before tomorrow, or your PE kit might not be ready yet, but to enable us to adhere to the Government guidelines, please come into school on a Monday and Wednesday (your other PE day) already changed into your kit. This includes the school uniform policy PE kit and leaving any earrings/other jewellery at home for the day. 

Please remember to bring:
* Your packed lunch
* A bottle of water that you will be able to keep on your desk
* Coats/Suncream - whichever is the most appropriate for the day!

The outside areas have been taped off for breaks and lunchtimes; we will discuss this during the first day, along with the daily routine and expectations.
On arrival, a member of staff will be at the door: the first thing you will need to do is wash your hands at the sink in 6B. After this, please hang your bags and coats up in the cloakroom then make your way back into your classroom. The floor is marked with tape showing you the direction you need to move in. In the classroom we will have set some morning work for you to complete, until everyone has arrived.

We really can't wait to see you all, it may feel a little daunting coming back but we can assure you, its the same place, with the same people.

                                                                                                                                                             See you in the morning - Mrs Birch,  Miss Kite, Mrs Goldsmith and Mrs Tamblyn
