Good Morning Year Six, 

 

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend!

 

I'm very much looking forward to seeing Group A and know Miss Price is looking forward to seeing Group B on Wednesday and Thursday.

 

The plan for the week is up, so please take a look.

 

I know a couple of you have asked about leavers events, there's a lot going on behind scenes to make it as special as we can, and I will let you know plans soon.

 

I hope you all have a lovely daysmiley

Good Morning Year Six, 

 

It was lovely seeing half of you yesterday and I was so impressed with how sensible you all were throughout the day. I'm so sad I can't see all of you at the moment, but hopefully at some point I will.

 

I have attached a picture of our new class rules which Group A came up with. Group B will also be following these. These are just to keep us all safe while at school.

 

It was so lovely to hear of all the positive experiences Group A has had during lockdown, like: a cousin being born, spending more family time, learning to create a mosaic, running amazing distances, reading lots! I'd love to hear of some of the positives that the rest of you have had during lockdown.

 

I have been inspired by Alex's mosaic creation and have attached some mosaic templates for you to create your own (not quite the same standard as Alex's!)

 

I hope you all have a lovely day smiley

Good Morning Year Six,

 

I hope you all have had a lovely half term and have taken advantage of this wonderful weather!! 

 

I am very much looking forward to seeing half of you today smiley and I know Miss Price is excited to see her group on Wednesday!

 

I've attached below a video to give you a little bit of information of what school will be like and to show you what the classroom looks like.

 

On the 'Home Learning' page is this weeks suggested learning at home.

 

To further support the current changes within school, all children and adults in Year Six will compile an updated list of "Rules and Expectations" today. These rules will be discussed and agreed and then displayed in the classroom and a copy will also  be sent home.

 

I hope if you are not in school today that you have a lovely day and I will see you soon I am sure smiley

Good Morning Year Six, 

 

I hope you are all doing okay today! I thought I'd share one thing I'm really enjoying at the moment and that's reading! Now that I've a bit more time, I've been getting through quite a few books and I've been loving it. I really hope you are all still reading and enjoying it. Would be lovely to hear about any of the books you are enjoying and would recommend to others!

 

I have attached a mosaic that you can complete today, there are three options so you can choose how hard you want to make it!

 

I hope you all have a lovely day smiley

Good Morning Year Six, 

 

Another sunny start to the day! I'm late doing my exercise today, so about to go out and do a quick run! Are any of you planning to do any exercise today? If so, would be great if you could send in a funny picture of you doing it!smiley

 

If any of you are looking for an activity to do, you could research who Florence Nightingale is and why she is important (it would have been her 200th birthday on Tuesday).

 

Hope you all have a lovely day and weekend smiley

Good morning Year Six, 

 

Another lovely and bright start to the day. I've just been on a walk with Millie (my dog) where she decided she preferred another dog and owner to me, and ran off with them! But I've got her back with me so all is good!!

 

I've attached some mindfulness colouring that you could do if you fancied. I find it sometimes helps if I'm a bit unsettled or agitated!

Good morning Year Six,

 

Looks a sunnier start to the day!

 

I can't believe that we should have been sitting our SATs this week, definitely brings me mixed emotions! I am so proud of you all, every single one of you worked incredibly hard throughout the year and it's a shame that you can't see for yourselves how far you have all come!

 

I found this poem that I really liked, so thought I'd share with you:

 

To all our Year 6’s,

As SATs week arrives it’s not quite the same,

The tests that were printed never came,

The displays all still; walls full of Maths ‘rules’,

But Year 6 very different, at present, in schools.

 

For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,

For others a sigh of pure disbelief,

That you worked really hard in advance of this week,

To get those top marks you did seek.

 

Algebra, fractions, the times table drills,

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,

Past, present, progressive…and all the SPAG terms,

You’ve practised and mastered them over the years.

 

Fear not though, the SATs, yes, won’t happen this term

But remember tests don’t measure everything you learn,

Primary subjects are varied; you’ve always tried your bet,

And many of those skills that you’ve gained can’t de defined by a test.

 

So here at Chalgrove, you’ve made us so proud

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud…

“Year 6 you amaze us, you’ve come incredibly far…

And we don’t need a test to see how amazing you are!”

 

 

I hope you all have a lovely day smiley
