Anti-Bullying and Parliament Week

naylorn on: Elm Class

This week the children have produced some excellent work based on both of our key themes. 

We have thought about the effects bullying can have and how we all have the power to make a change.

We have developed an understanding of Parliament and the children have been able to ask questions to a real MP!

We have also begun are own newspapers with the help of The Yorkshire Evening Post.

In class, we have had many discussion about being role models and behaving in the correct way - we will be continuing to run with this theme in class. 

Well done on some excellent work.

This week, Yorkshire Evening Post came to school and brought us a selection of newspapers to read - luckily for us, we will be getting a delivery for 6 weeks! Over these 6 weeks, children will be working on their own front covers for a newspaper, these stories can be fiction or non-fiction as long as they are written in the correct style. Yesterday, we had our pictures taken, so look out for that in today's newspaper. Maybe a new career in sight for some of them!

We have been writing about secret gardens in literacy - the ideas the children have come up with have been excellent. Many children have really been pushing themselves to evaluate what they have done as well, using a range of new writing techniques. 

In maths we have been applying our skills to BODMAS - ask your children what this means. 

Thank you for everyone who has returned the letter about the Christmas Concert, if you haven't or you have lost the letter please let me know. It will be great to have all the children there to celebrate together. 

Next week is anti-bullying week and Parliament week, this will the the focus for much of our work. 

Have a great weekend

Busy Week - Great fun, so much achieved!

naylorn on: Elm Class

What is busy and eventful week - i really hope our year 6s have had a great time completing a range of activities. 

On Monday we went out into the school grounds, pulled out lots of weeds and planted some bulbs for spring time - fingers crossed they will grow and look beautiful!

On Tuesday, we visited the memory garden, the wildlife area and sat in our amphitheatre. We have taken a range of pictures and are using them to create our own 'secret gardens' as part of our literacy work. 

On Wednesday, children completed research on War Time Vehicles - sent any recycling our way to help us create them!

On Thursday, we workied hard on our spelling and grammar - trying to find out what we know and what we need to work on. 

Today, we learnt all about Guy Fawkes and wrote recounts and poems! What a fantastic job they did!!! We also went to Nursery and helped bring the children outside to watch some firework, year 6 did a fantastic job and Mrs Williams invited us back!

Phew!!!! I hope you all sleep well this weekend ready for next week!!

Hooray!

naylorn on: Elm Class

Wow,  year 6 have been fantastic this week.

From being great roles models in assembly, to earning a playground star - we have 5 now.
Brag tags have been successful too - ask your child what they have earned. 

Maths has been tricky, dividing bigger numbers by 1 or 2 digits! However, we have learnt a new trick, hopefully the children can show you in their homework. Writing has been exciting, completing recounts as if we were children in The Blitz, the children have been enthusiastic throughout. 

Finally - Art! Check out our Blitz pictures, they are not all on the wall yet, but soon will be. 

Have a great weekend - see you at parent's evening next week!

Eden Camp

naylorn on: Elm Class

We have had a great week this week. 

Great maths, fantastic writing, not to mention a school trip and art/ DT projects. 

Eden Camp was fantastic - the children were a credit to the school and to their families. We found out loads about the war and what it was like in the 1940s. 

Next week is our class assembly, I don't want to give too much away but it will be exciting and great fun! Come and see us on Tuesday at 9.05 am. Hopefully see you there!
