Class Blog for Year 6K

Another a-mazing week! 

We have had a super week in 6K this week and the work produced has been excellent. Miss Kite and Mrs Goldsmith have been blown away with the contributions of you all in class and there were lots of raffle tickets given out!
A HUGE congratulations to our TTRS hall of fame this week. It is great to see you all spending so much time practising your times tables- it is a very important skill to have.
In Maths this week, we continued to look at place value including negative numbers and rounding numbers. Can you teach an adult at home our rounding rap? Mrs Spencer was really pleased with all of your reasoning and the excellent work in your books so far. Keep it up :)
In English, we have been developing our own stories based around 'The Hero's Journey' structure. We have developed our own plots and characters and Miss Kite is very much looking forward to reading your finished stories next week.
In our learning adventure, we have continued to look at the Mayflower and considered some reasons why people might have wanted to travel to America. What do you think the journey was like for those people 400 years ago?
General reminders:
Monday- Wild Tribe (Forest school)
Monday- Spellings (look at the spellings you set yourself to learn this week)
Wednesday-PE
TTRS- Please try to log on each day play on Garage to track your progress and Studio to improve your rock status. Next week, we will be focusing on the 4 times tables in class.
Homework/reading diary- Please bring homework diary, reading diary and reading book to school each day. These should also go home with you each day so you can read and complete any homework tasks.
Science- Please continue to bring in cereal boxes for our Science lesson.

Upcoming dates:
Roman Day- week beginning 5th October 
There will be more information to follow, but we will be having a Roman dress up day in Year 6 on the week beginning 5th October. Have a think about what you might like to dress up as. We are also looking for some large pieces of cardboard for this day, so if you have anything suitable, please bring it in to school.

Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
Miss Kite, Miss Birch, Mrs Goldsmith and Mrs Tamblyn


 


A fan-tas-tic start! 

What a superb start to our first week back to school! 
Miss Kite, Mrs Goldsmith, Mrs Birch and Mrs Tamblyn have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming you all back, and it has been great to see you reconnecting with your friends and peers. 
It has been a busy week getting used to our new classrooms and the changes in the working environment, but we have been incredibly proud of how well you have settled back in.
In Maths this week, we began to revise Place Value and will continue with this over the next few weeks. During our English lessons, we wrote a story about a boat on a journey (you can watch the story again here if you like https://www.literacyshed.com/little-boat.html) and, after a class vote, began reading our new class novel- The boy at the back of the class. 
Over the next few weeks, our Learning Adventure will focus on the Mayflower. Can you research any facts and share them with the class?

Some general reminders:
*Please remember to bring a water bottle each day to bring into class.
*Reading Records and books have been handed out this week. Please bring them to school each day, and record any home reading.
*Times Tables Rock Stars is already proving very popular. Try to log in for at least 3 minutes each day and play on 'Garage' or 'Studio'. Congratulations to everyone who made it onto our TTRS Hall of Fame this week!
*From Monday, Homework Diaries and Homework books will be going out. Please remember to check your homework diaries for your spellings and Times Tables each week. 
*On Mondays, there will be Forest School. Please come to school in outdoor clothes, a long sleeved top, a waterproof coat and bring a change of shoes. 
*PE will be on Wednesday, so please come to school in full PE kit.
*We will be using cereal boxes in Science next week. If you have any empty cereal boxes, please bring them into school before Thursday.

Have a wonderful, restful weekend and we look forward to seeing you all again on Monday.


 


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.

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! 

On Monday we will have PE. we 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.
