Post-SATs life is upon us and it has been an extremely busy but enjoyable week here in Year 6. We began Spirituality Week by welcoming grandparents into our classroom, where the children found out what their grandparents’ childhoods were like compared to their own. It was interesting to hear that it was extremely uncommon for people to go abroad decades ago, and we discussed why this might have been the case.
Here are some of the impressive portraits that the children drew of their grandparents.
Also on Monday, Year 6 exchanged prayer cards with their Reception reading partners, ate some cake, then spent some time playing together. They all had great fun getting the parachute out!
As is traditional for Spirituality Week, the Year 6s led the rest of the school in the Spirituality Stations – a chance for each class to spend half an hour in the hall and be still an reflective whilst participating in various prayerful activities. There were comments from staff members about how well the Year 6s led the rest of the school – well done.
In English, we have moved onto a new unit based around a book called The Island. The children have enjoyed getting into the role of the different characters, and are being kept in suspense about how the story ends!
We are lucky enough to have Mr Dugan teaching PE between now and the end of term, with the focus being on cricket.
A huge well done to all those that participated in the Oakmere Mini Marathon this morning: you did yourselves proud. Congratulations in particular to Ellie (who came 1st out of the girls) and Ben (who came 8th out of the boys).
Once again, it was wonderful to see every single one of you auditioning for a part in the Y6 production. I will be blogging another post in the next couple of days to outline what you need to learn song-wise over half term, but you’ll need to make sure you know all your lines by the time we come back so that we can hit the ground running with rehearsals.
Well that’s another half term gone in a flash. Well done for all the hard work you’ve put into your learning. It’s been an extremely busy few weeks, so have a restful week off and I’ll see you all on the 4th June.
