Star of the Week in Haughmond Class

We have had a ‘Fabulous’ week in Haughmond once again and it was such a hard decision having to choose our ‘Star of the Week. However, this week Miss Richards and I have chosen Ivelina. Her work is exemplary to all pupils in the class. She is always first in, settles down to her work straight away and produces outstanding work at all times. She has tried really hard this week, as have all the children in Haughmond, but Ivelina has shone brightly. 

She once again scored full marks in spelling along with Ethan, Luke, Brooke and Alex.

We would like to say a huge well done to all of the Year 6’s for some fantastic test scores.

We are extremely proud of all of you!

 

Star of the Week is back!

We have once again had an amazing week in Haughmond and it was so difficult to choose one child. However, the one child that kept catching Miss Richard’s and my eye was Ethan Browne. Wow! What an exceptional start to Year 6! We could not have asked for anything more. Keep up the good work Ethan! From your attitude to learning, good spelling results and Accelerated Reading Scores – you have just had the best week.

Who will it be next week?

We would also like to say a big well done to Tyler and Ivelina who were the only pupils to get full marks in their spelling test and also to Kyle and Libby who received their pen license from Mr Dickson.

We had a fabulous celebration assembly via zoom from Mr Dickson on Friday to celebrate all the fantastic learning that had taken place throughout the week.

Well done Haughmond – we are so proud of you!

Meet your new teacher!

As we are unable to have a normal transition into our new classes, the teachers have produced a short video to introduce themselves to their new pupils. We are all looking forward to meeting you properly in September.  Have a wonderful Summer and stay safe!

Den making

Can you build a den in your garden, or inside your house? Once you have built your den, can you write me a set of instructions, so I know how you’ve made such a good den!

Hello Monday.

Good morning team,

Today, marks the last week of the Summer Term. For you guys, this is the last week of being a primary school pupil. Although this year hasn’t finished the way we wanted it to, the Y6 team are working hard to make the best out of this situation. So keep your eyes peeled for things occurring this week.

Our home learning focus for this week, is continuing with the ‘outdoor’ theme. Hopefully the weather will be nicer this week, so we can spend more time outdoors.

Below is the timetable for todays activities:

Today’s session is about multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000. Watch the video tutorials and then complete the activities provided.

Friday Water Cycle

Good morning Haughmond,

We have made it to the end of another week. Next week is our last week of the Summer Term.

As we have had a lot of rain over the last few days, I thought today’s lesson could be based on the learning of the water cycle.

Start the day, by waking up with some exercise and learning about the water cycle.

Click on the link below, to access the video.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z8qtfg8

Using the clip as a stimulus, can you write your own explanation report about the water cycle with a detailed, labelled diagram. You could then, also complete your own experiments, demonstrating the key processes: evaporation and condensation. To demonstrate evaporation, leave a tray of water outside and watch it disappear and evaporate. To retrieve the water, create condensation by using a cold window or mirror and breathing onto it. This will create moisture.

For today’s session, why not try some practical maths? Watch the video for some ideas on how to test your fractions knowledge using things you already have at home!

We’re going on a bear hunt…

Good morning Haughmond,

We are going to continue our outdoor learning theme today.

English.

Can you write a newspaper report about a family going on a bear hunt?

Watch the video of Michael Rosen performing the story of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. Using the video as a stimulous, can you write a newspaper report about a family going on a bear hunt. Remember, a newspaper report needs to have the following features:

A bold, eye catching title

A short introduction

Images with captions

Reported speech

Events need to be written in chronological order

Watch the video below to help remind yourself of the features and the layout of a newspaper report.

Today’s session is about finding fractions of an amount that you can learn all about with Martin in our video tutorial. There are two activities to work on today.

Wednesday Riddles

Good morning Haughmond,

We are half way through the week. In our class we love a riddle. So today’s English lesson is going to involve writing our own riddles about nature.

Can you correctly answer these riddles first?

Using the template on the link below, you need to try to find something outside for each letter of the alphabet, for example an ant for A.

Y6 Transition Zoom

Wow! We had a very successful Y6 Zoom this morning. It was lovely to see so many children. Hopefully a lot of concerns and worries were addressed, with regards to starting secondary school in September.

If you have any questions you didn’t asked on the Zoom meeting, about transition, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Mrs Platt on our class Dojo pages.

See you all next week for our ‘Y6 Have Got Talent’.
