Snape Class Shout-Outs!

Well done, Eleanor!

Eleanor has been drawing and sketching over the past few weeks! She has sketched some amazing characters and items! Here are Eleanor's favourite sketches!

Super work, Eleanor! They are absolutely brilliant! smiley

Can you guess the Disney characters?

 

 

Projects:

If you have nearly finished the packs which we sent home, maybe you could have a go at producing a 'Project on a Page!'

These look absolutely amazing and you could base them around any theme that you would like to! Adding pictures and lots of colour make them really interesting to look at too!

Here is an example:

Some themes you could write about are:

English: Your favourite author and their books with book reviews, find an image and write poems based on it or create your own character and create a whole life for them

Maths: As much as you can remember about fractions, time or each method

Science: The Circulatory System, Electricity or Light

History: WWII, The Battle of Hastings, Evacuation

Geography: Countries around the world, Recycling or Rivers around the world

Art: Choose your favourite artist and try and recreate some of their artwork

D.T: Find some recycling junk and create a masterpiece

 

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC Colouring Pages:

I have also found the best colouring pages in the world! Wolves have released their very own colouring pages and I thought I'd put them here just in case anyone would like to colour them in beautifully! If you do colour any in, they would look fantastic on our classroom notice board!

I Spy!

I've found a Harry Potter 'I Spy' for you! Can you find all of the items hidden in the picture?

 

 

Scavenger Hunt!

I've found some scavenger hunts you could do while you're at home! Once you have completed them, make sure you tidy up and put all of the items back away! smiley

 

 

English:

This week in English, we were going to be writing setting descriptions about a video from Literacy Shed. Here is a link to the video if you would like to watch it and have a go at a brilliant setting description! smiley

Guinness World Record Attempt!

Sport Relief

On Friday 13th March, we all took part in Sport Relief!

We started the day by writing up our report linked to our Sport Relief Quidditch that we played yesterday...

Then, we participated in a carousel of sporting activities around the playground where we took part in activities such as relay races, javelin throwing and penalty shootout...

We then completed a Maths activity where we had to place the footballs in the correct place on the football pitch... Finally, we ended the day with a 'Danceathon' where we all went onto the playground and danced for an hour! Even though the weather was not very kind to us, everyone was still absolutely brilliant! 

 

 

British Science Week

On Wednesday 11th March, we celebrated British Science Week by linking it to our electricity learning for the term!

Our question was:

Can we make objects move without using our hands?

We made a prediction...

We carried out different investigations using balloons, polystyrene plates, pieces of paper and cloths... We then wrote a conclusion from our investigation...

 

World Book Day

On Thursday 5th March, we celebrated World Book Day!

We visited four different classrooms where we took part in four different activities all linked to Harry Potter! 

We started off with a Maths activity linked to co-ordinates on the Marauder's Map...

Then, we completed an Art activity linked to the wonderful scenery of Hogwarts...

 

 

Christmas Week 2019!

For our last week of the Autumn Term, we had lots of fun to get us in the Christmas spirit!

We started off by making wonderful cards and calendars...

On Tuesday, we had a lovely Breakfast with Santa where we watched a Christmas film and ate lots of breakfast goodies...

On Wednesday, we had a trip to Merry Hill Cinema where we watched Elf! We had the comfortable, recliner seats and lots of snacks too! It was an amazing Christmas treat!

On Thursday, we decorated place mats and had our Christmas Party!

We played lots of party games and ate lots of delicious food!

We even had a special visit from Santa who bought us lovely presents!

We finished Christmas week with Toy Day and a Harry Potter film with popcorn! What a fantastic week! 

Well done Snape Class, a super first term in Year 6!! 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Children in Need

On Friday 15th November, we wore pyjamas to school to raise money for Children in Need. Snape class raised £25.50.

Well done everyone!

 

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.

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 :). 

 

 

Diwali Celebrations!

On Friday 25th October, we looked at the celebration of Diwali! We watched a video about why this festival is celebrated.

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

 

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!

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

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 Snape Class, well done!

 

 

 

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! Mrs Kirkham 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 Snape Class!

 

 

 

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!

Year 6 Maths Inspire Workshop

 

On Friday 26th October, we enjoyed our first Inspire Workshop.  Thank you to everyone for attending.

**********************************************************

 

On Monday, September 10th 2018, Year 6 started their new topic by travelling 

back in time and experiencing a journey many children would have made during 

the World War 2 era.

 

The children and staff of year 6 were 'evacuated' from school and sent away on the Severn Valley Railway to Highley Station! The children had nothing more than their packed lunches and the clothes on their back!! 

 

We had 4 fantastic guides during our trip and we were informed that Highley Station was actually a destination for children during the World War 2 evacuation. Upon arriving, children waited to be allocated to the villagers.

It really gave us all an appreciation of what life would have been like for the evacuees of World War II. 

 

Healthy Schools Week

 

On Friday 21st September, we made a Fruit Salad 

to link into Healthy Schools Week!

 

Firstly, we spoke about different types of fruit and then we made our Fruit Salads. We linked this neatly into our English lesson and based our Big Write on Making Instructions, using Imperative Verbs.  Well done Everyone !!
