Afternoon Message-Thursday 11th June 2020
I hope you've had a great day. At school, we decided to start the day by doing PE with Joe. Wow, well done to all of the class as they persevered and completed the workout- it was challenging! Ms Choudhry and I also joined in.
'The Ickabog' is turning out to be a interesting story. Were you shocked at how petrified King Fred had become in Chapter 12? This was in complete contrast to his jubilant image in chapter 11. I'm looking forwards to reading your writing today, which is linked to the topic above. Don't forget to post!
The PSHE discussion (see ppt) was also interesting as we were able to discuss that it is acceptable for you and your friends to have a different perspective on situations, events and still be respectful towards one another.
The children in Ar class, who attended school, scored quite highly on the spag test. What was your score?
I hope that you were able to follow the maths lesson- Algebra, the quiz was very helpful.
Don't forget to reflect on today's learning and think about the lessons you've excelled in and those which you you need to revise further.
Finally, I would just like to give Eseosa in Ar class, a huge round of applause. She spent a great deal of time on Yumu (music) yesterday and managed to complete the entire music topic for this half-term. Eseosa is deserving of her Gold certificate, for her great effort in music.
I hope you have a lovely evening.
Good Morning Y6,
I hope that you continue to be safe and well. I'm just getting ready to go to school as are some of the children who have returned this week. It has been and interesting week,in which the staff and children have been discussing the impact of the Coronavirus on our everyday lives. I certainly hope that you have been keeping up with PSHE activities this week. So far, we have discussed the worries that we've had and how we've coped with them. Additionally, we've discussed the skills and talents that we've discovered during this time.
I just wanted to say a big well done to Shrusti, in Ar Class for posting her learning on Seesaw everyday.
Remember to keep up with your daily, reading , writing and Maths activities so that you don't struggle when you return to school. Teachers are monitoring your use of seesaw, bug club. Should you need support with these, please don't hesitate to ask.
The sky looks really dark and gloomy, therefore make sure you complete the Jo Wicks PE activity. There's no reason why you can't start your day with that-9am.
Hope you have a good day.
I'll catch up with you later.
