Year 6 - Miss Hackwood

 

In Luna Class we have lots of fun and laughter! On this page you will find our class news and lots of interesting pictures showing you what we have done.

 

 

Important information about us!

School Council Representatives:

Chaya and Abubakr will be our School Council Representatives for Year 6!

Chaya and Abubakr will take any ideas from our class discussions and then put them forward in the School Council Meetings with Miss Dallison.

 

PE Day:

Every Tuesday

Please ensure that the correct PE kit is in school on this day and that your jewellery is also removed.  

 

Swimming:

Wednesdays

Children will need to make sure they have their swimming kit in school on this day.

 

Homework:

Homework is given to children on a Friday and should be back in school by the following Wednesday.

 

Reading Challenge:

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 Dosanjh 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.

 

New for this year, Year 6 children also have access to a website called Reading Plus. Reading Plus is a brilliant website to help children with their reading skills! Every child has their own username and password and can access this from home!  

 

  Every week, we celebrate our successes by having a Writer of the Week, Maths Mind, Sports Player and a VIP!

Luna Class 2019-2020

Rock Steady Assembly!

On Thursday 12th September, Ben came in from Rock Steady to teach all us about different electric instruments!

He showed us the electric guitar, the electric drum kit and the electric keyboard and we all sang different songs and joined in with the different rhythms! 

On Wednesday 18th September, Rock Steady came back to visit our school where different children had the opportunity to go up on to the stage to play the different instruments!

We had Lola on the drums, Mason on the electric guitar, Shadane and James on the keyboard and then Luke and Isabelle on the vocals!

A letter has now gone out with extra information about children who would like to participate in Rock Steady lessons! Make sure you enrol online if you would like to!

 

Healthy Schools Week!

For Healthy Schools Week, all of our English work was based around instructions and how to keep ourselves healthy!

On Friday, we decided to make sure we ate our five a day and the whole class prepared their own fruit salad! Miss Dosanjh started off by cutting the skin off the pineapple and the melon and then everyone had a go at preparing fresh fruit which included banana, strawberries, grapes, apples, kiwi and oranges!

The whole class were super at cutting up the fruit so that there was enough for everyone!

Well done Luna Class!

Languages Day!

On Thursday 26th October, we celebrated Languages Day! We spent the afternoon looking at ways to say hello in different languages!

We then looked at the different flags for the different countries and drew them onto our poster!

A brilliant way to celebrate Languages Day Luna Class, well done!

Mental Health Day

On Thursday 10th October, we had a discussion about our mental health. 

We started off by talking about our worries and about how they could weigh us down. 

We then wrote all of our worries anonymously on a piece of paper and then we threw them around the classroom to get rid of them!

We then put all of our worries into our worry bag which we are going to have in our classroom from now on. We have got paper by the side of it to add any extra worries that we have. 

We then looked at two apples which represented two hearts. We spoke really kindly to one of them and shouted really unkind words to the other one. 

We then spoke about how words affect us and how it makes us feel on the inside. 

We then cut the apples in half to reveal what these different words would make us feel like. 

Maths INSPIRE!

On Friday 25th October, we had our Maths Inspire session!

We started off with a times table challenge and then went through the different methods that we needed for the SATs Arithmetic Test!

It was lovely to see so many parents in our lesson!

Well done everyone!

 

Diwali Celebrations!

On Friday 25th October, we looked at the celebration of Diwali!

We watched a video about why this festival is celebrated and we even saw Miss Dosanjh celebrating Diwali with her family!

We then did some Bollywood dancing! Everyone was fantastic! Well done!

Anti-Bullying Week

Throughout the week commencing 11th November, we looked at anti bullying and how we can ensure to help people who we think may be being bullied. 

We talked about respecting others, treating people how we would like to be treated and always trying to put a smile on people's faces; as Jasdeep said that this makes the world a brighter place :). 

We had a really sensible and mature class discussion about bullying and hopefully we can show lots of kindness to all people from now on :). 

 

Children in Need!

On Friday 15th November, we came to school in our pyjamas and brought in a donation for Children in Need! We all looked wonderful in our comfies for the day!

Well done everyone for supporting the charity!

Luna Class 2018 - 2019

During the week of 25th March, Year 6 participated in a mosaic making competition. Four children won the designing competition and their designs have been turned into brilliant mosaics. All of the children added a part to the mosaics. 

What a fantastic experience.

 

We had a brilliant week celebrating Science Week by completing lots and lots of experiments! We made light bend, watched a smiley face disappear in water and switch an arrow so it faced the opposite way! We finished the week by making our very own periscope.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Thursday 7th March, we celebrate World Book Day by coming to school dressed as out favourite book character. We had so much fun creating our own book tokens and designing a brand new front cover for our favourite book.

Well done Luna Class!

 

On Thursday 10th January, the Behaviour Champions celebrated their fantastic behaviour with extra playtime on the afternoon. The children had a variety of equipment to play with and had the opportunity to socialise with all of the different year groups and Mrs Bashir-Pugh too!

 

It was lovely to see the Year 6 girls take Key Stage 1 children under their wings and how comfortable the younger children were with our caring and playful children.

Well done everyone!

 

What a fantastic afternoon to celebrate our brilliant behaviour! 

 

It's Christmas!

We had lots of fun celebrating Christmas on the last few days of term! We created our Christmas cards, calendars and placemats ready for the party.

We practised Christmas songs and performed a carol concert on the playground! We had Breakfast with Santa, a film afternoon watching Elf and partied away the afternoon playing party games and eating food!

We really enjoyed our last Christmas at Reddal Hill!

Ration Cooking

On Tuesday 13th November, Year 6 were given a selection of rationed ingredients to make jam tarts. The children worked in groups to make the pastry and jam to fill the tarts.

The children use weighing scales to measure the ingredients. They then had to make as many jam tarts out of their pastry!

We had so much fun pretending to ration cook and the jam tarts tasted amazing! Even Mrs Potter loved them!

 

Pink Day

On Friday 19th October, we wore pink clothing to school to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Everyone donated to the charity. Luna Class raised a brilliant £29.00! Well done!

Mental Health Awareness Week

On Thursday 4th October, Year 6 participated in lessons about Mental Health. The children had to write a secret positive paragraph about a member of the class and read it out. The other children had to guess who the positive comments were about.

We then completed mindful colouring and wrote positive rules for being the perfect Year 6 role model!

Well done Luna Class!

Healthy Schools Week

 

On Friday 21st September, we made a fruit salad and wrote detailed instructions of how to make one to link with Healthy Schools Week. We spoke about the different fruits and everyone had a go at chopping the fruits.

For our homework, we also had a t-shirt competition. Well done Hafsa, you were the winner! 

 

HSBC Bank

On Thursday 20th September, some children from Year 6 attended an interview for the school HSBC Bank. The children presented excellent interview skills and were chosen to run the school bank!

Well done HSBC Bank Workers, we are very proud of you!

Severn Valley Railway Trip

 

On Monday 10th September, Year 6 began their new topic of World War II by travelling back in time and experiencing an evacuation.

The children were evacuated from school and sent away to Highley with their pack lunch, ID card and their school uniform. The children had a fantastic time learning all about World War II, experiencing an Anderson Shelter, listening to a personal recount and boarding an old train.

What a super start to our new topic, Luna Class!
