Our Class Vision Statement

We want to be in a classroom where we all:

Listen to each other recognising the importance of the ideas of others.

Are responsible for ourselves and our belongings

Focus on learning so we are not distracting while others are trying to work

Help each other when we are stuck

Act as equals when in a group so that no one takes charge of the group, but instead everyone listens to everyone else‛s ideas

Work well together

We are friendly and welcoming.

Are respectful to everyone in the room

Include everyone and never ignore others

Allow others to finish their thoughts

Accept individual opinions, even when we don‛t agree with them

Remember that some people need quiet when they work

As part of our Literacy work, Year 6 have been studying the book Ice Trap! Shackleton's Incredible Expedition. So far we have written a diary from the perspective of a character on the Endeavour. It is obvious from the fantastic work produced that the children have enjoyed this book and can imagine themselves on that ship. Now, we are currently writing a narrative based on the expedition before we move on to a newspaper report. We are so impressed with the work produced and cannot wait to put it on our classroom wall! Each child has produced so many pieces so far, they just need to decide which piece they would like displayed on the wall!

Today, we continued our own adventure story based on the book 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman. Before we began our work, we played an alliteration game using the alphabet. This helped us as we used a lot of alliteration in our writing today. We are really enjoying writing these stories and have already thought of some fantastic ideas of where to take the stories.

Today, our class took part in the NSPCC Buddy's Big Workout which was taking place throughout school. In Year 6, we decided that we would choose our own one minute challenge to complete. We had lots of different challenges including; star jumps, sit ups, push ups, holding the plank, kick ups, skipping and many more. All of our children did extremely well and should be very proud of what they achieved. We completed our one minute challenges in support of the NSPCC Buddy's Big Workout. The children took part in a whole school assembly and learnt about the NSPCC and the incredible job they do. Each child has raised some sponsor money which will be used to continue the great job the NSPCC do.

WELL DONE YEAR 6!

This week, PC Whitehouse visited the class the speak about Drugs, Online Safety and Personal Safety. The children took part in many activities which looked at the facts and myths regarding these topics. The children asked many questions about these topics and have learnt a lot this week from PC Whitehouse. Here are just a few quotes from the class regarding PC Whitehouse's visit.

'PC Whitehouse has taught me many things that will change my future. I didn't know about saving passwords to computers and that it can cause a virus. Now, I've told my teacher that I've had saved passwords and we've sorted it.'  By Emily Y6

'I learnt about the number 101 and how it's for non emergency cases and what happens if you contact the emergency services when it is a non-emergency.' By Isaac Y6

'PC Whitehouse explained the dangers online in great detail and I am now much more aware about what could happen.' By Hari Y6

'I loved the sessions. I have learnt what the 'safe place' sticker means. I will learn where my nearest safe place is if I am outside and will use it if I feel like I am in danger.' By Ellianna Y6
