Writing in the holidays!

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

One of our Year 6 students, Ava, has produced some wonderful writing during her half-term break!

She continued our story plot and wrote about how Grendel's mother came back for revenge after Beowulf defeated her son in battle.

Her use of vocabulary is outstanding and this piece of writing could come from the book itself!

Well done, Ava! 

 


Week commencing 9th October

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

Good morning Year 6,

I hope you have all had a lovely, restful weekend. 

Here is our timetable for this week: Week 6 timetable.docx

This week in Year 6 it is assessment week. Please do not worry about these assessments as they are there to ensure we can provide each and every one of you the support that you need - just try your best!

PE

PE will take place on Thursday afternoons with Mrs Coward. Please ensure you come dressed in the correct PE uniform on this day. 

Forest School

Our Forest School sessions will take place on Friday afternoons - please ensure you are dressed appropriately for this session. 

Attendance 

Well done to those of you who attended school every day last week - what a wonderful example you are setting for your younger peers! Don't forget about our attendance rewards in place - are you going to get £1 towards a Meadowhall voucher this week?

School gates open at 8:30 and children will be given a morning task to complete from this time - due to the amount of work we will have to get through in Year 6, this time in a morning is extremely valuable for your child and will benefit them hugely throughout the year.

Homework

Homework will be due on Friday 13th October. Children must complete 20 minutes of TT Rockstars, one Bedrock lesson and one spelling shed assignment. This will be checked weekly and any children who have not completed their homework will have to complete this during their break time. For any children who cannot access this from home, a homework club will run on a Tuesday lunch time 12:15 - 12:30 where children can complete this homework. Usernames and passwords are available for your child to get if they cannot remember theirs. 

As usual, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me on y6@olsj.org.uk

If there is anything you think requires urgent attention, please contact school and ask to speak to me as emails will only be looked at once a week. 

Let's have a great week!
