School Council Representatives:
Elena and Morgan will be our School Council Representatives for Year 6!
Elena and Morgan will take any ideas from our class discussions and then put them forward in the School Council Meetings with Miss Dallison.
Children are able to come to school in their PE kits on a Thursday. Please ensure that appropriate footwear is worn and PE clothing is appropriate for the weather as our lessons will be outdoors on the playground.
Our Swimming lessons are now every Wednesday at Haden Hill Leisure Centre.
Please ensure that all children have their swimming kit ready for this lesson each week.
If there are any questions regarding our swimming lessons, please feel free to come and speak to one of the Year 6 team :).
Homework is given to children on a Friday in Year 6. To fully prepare the children for secondary school, we are now including transition style homework, as well as Maths and English work to consolidate any learning completed in school. Homework can now be brought into school on a Wednesday, where it will be quarantined for 48 hours. Miss Hackwood and Miss Johnson will then look over the homework and address any misconceptions in our lessons the following week.
Each term, we are holding a Reading Challenge in Luna Class.
Each time you read at home, either with an adult or by yourself, write it in your reading record and every time a comment has been written in, you get one raffle ticket in the pot!
Reading Records need to be in school every day if possible so that Miss Hackwood and Miss Hammond can check that you have got all of your raffle tickets and so that books can be changed on a weekly basis as well!
By the end of the term, one ticket will be pulled out of the pot and that child will win a very special prize for their hard work to improve their reading!
Good luck everyone!
Mathletics and Purple Mash:
Children can access these websites from home, each child has an individual username and password that will be sent home with them.
Mathletics is an excellent resource which allows children to practise their mathematics skills.

A lovely day Year 6, well done!
British Science Week!
During the week commencing 8th March, we participated in British Science Week where the theme was 'Innovating the Future'.
Our investigation was based around whether citrus fruits could create electricity!
After many investigations, we concluded that a lemon is not a reliable source of electricity as it is very unpredictable!
A brilliant week Year 6; well done!

To celebrate Mother's Day, we made beautiful cards to say thank you to our wonderful Moms!

To participate in Internet Safety Day, we have completed a range of activities this week to understand how to stay safe on the internet!
We discussed what Internet Safety Day is and completed a quiz about what we should do in different scenarios! We then produced a poster to remind ourselves how we can always stay safe and what we need to do if we feel worried about anything!
Well done Year 6; your posters are bright, colourful and include very important information !
Chinese New Year

My Identity Bag

Our Identity Bags highlighted how individual we all are :).
In RE, we learnt all about Diwali - the Festival of Light! We watched a brilliant video explaining the traditions and special activities that take place on the day. We created beautiful Diwali artwork on magical black paper! We drew Rangoli patterns, Diva lamps and traditional Hindu patterns.
Well done Luna class; they are absolutely beautiful!
Christmas Card Competition
For Christmas this year, James Morris set his annual competition of completing a Christmas card. We produced a range of Christmas cards, using different designs, ready to send off to James Morris to see if any of us can win the competition!
Good luck everyone; your designs are amazing!
As part of our British Values learning, we wrote a letter to James Morris regarding the different issues that we felt we needed to discuss at the moment. We wrote letters about the NHS, the environment and the housing around our area.
Ellie-Mai wrote a letter to James Morris about how hard the NHS has worked throughout the pandemic and how they deserve to be recognised for their amazing efforts! James Morris wrote back to Ellie-Mai stating that the NHS will be getting a pay rise next year!
Well done Ellie-Mai for making a difference!
Remembrance Day 2020
For Remembrance Day this year, James Morris asked schools in Sandwell to produce a special piece of Art work to remember the different Poppy Day we had this year.
We created a poppy collage as a class and sent it off to James Morris.
He was extremely impressed with our design and mentioned us on his social media!
Well done everyone!
We have also received a certificate from James Morris for our participation in the competition!
Fantastic work everyone!
On Wednesday 11th November, we looked at the poem 'In Flanders Fields' and created our own version of it. We then wrote it on tracing paper and stuck it to a Remembrance Day picture.
They look absolutely brilliant; amazing work Year 6!
To commemorate 75 years since VE Day, we had an amazing poppy wreath sent into us.
We spoke about what this meant and how important it is to World War II.
