We are finally back together again! It is absolutely wonderful to have the classroom bursting with enthusiasm, smiles and laughter. I am extremely proud of how seamlessly all the children have settled back into the classroom environment and they have returned eager and ready to learn and we are enjoying sharing experiences as a class again! 

 

We have started the remaining 3 weeks of this term off with a brilliant art project to help settle the children back in to the learning environment, provide opportunities for them to express their creative side and to produce a colourful masterpiece for our display boards. We will then be moving to our Art Topic work which is based on Leonardo Da Vinci. 

 

We have also started our English work, which is all planned around the story NEVERMOOR: THE TRIALS OF MORRIGAN CROW, and despite only reading a few pages so far, it has definitely generated some very thought provoking discussions within the classroom. Our reading and writing sessions will be based on this text and we will share our work with you as it is produced. 

 

Please continue to encourage your child to access their Google Classroom account as their spellings and homework will be assigned on there now as the children have become experts with this online learning platform, which we would like to continue using as an integral part of our communication between home and school.

Our balloon globes showing our geographical understanding of the Earth 🌎

Today, we kick started our new topic with a flight to South America. We carried out in-flight tasks to become familiar with the amazing continent we were travelling to and when we arrived, we were presented with an envelope of clues to try and guess our first destination.

Shading in our Mona Lisa sketches applying the skills we learned in the drawing style of Leonardo Da Vinci

Our finished art project. We are very proud of our work and I think you will agree that they look amazing!

The making of our backgrounds

There were mixed feelings about this next step of our art project as the children were asked to tear their work into strips! Yes, that’s right, the children ripped their work up! Don’t worry though, all the strips will be mixed together and shared back out for the children to create their backgrounds 😃😃

How amazing do the children’s animal eyes and noses look for their art project? They followed a blending technique using the various shades of the same colour oil pastels to create their desired effect and we are all very impressed with the finished results. We can’t wait to see them on the final piece.

What a fantastic reading session we had in class today to kick start our English work based on Nevermoor. The children supported and challenged each other’s predictions based on the character names, objects from the text and the front cover. We can’t wait to start reading this magical story😃

Today, we began a mini art project to settle us back in to class nicely. We are looking forward to showing you our finished pieces of work.

Christmas Spelling Challenge

HALF TERM HOMEWORK CHALLENGE

Our finished non-chronological reports all about a Swedish Christmas - we enjoyed finding out about Swedish traditions and comparing them to our own Christmas traditions.

A very festive lunch time 🎄🎄

We had a brilliant time at our mini fair this morning. Lots of fun was had and sweets were won. Congratulations to Aimee who guessed the exact number of sweets in the jar and Joseph who won the festive penguin by guessing its name correctly. 🎄🎄

Check out our absolutely awesome Year 6 Vikings display which is in the hall. As not many people get to walk through the hall at the moment, I thought I’d share the display here for everyone to see!

Our Viking long ships are finished and we are really pleased with them.

Santa Dash 2020

The children had a fantastic time doing their Santa Dash. The event began with a Christmas themed warm-up linked to the Twelve Days of Christmas. We did a variety of moves such as: turkeys flapping, penguins waddling, ice skating and reindeers galloping- very festive!

The rain managed to hold-off until we had finished the running.
