Week commencing 11th June 2018

This week has been super busy in Year 6. It may be barbeque season but we are in full panto season at the moment rehearsing for our end of year performance of 'Aladdin Trouble.' 

This week on Monday, some of our class went on a 5 mile bike ride with the South Ribble coaches. They had a great time and were able to put into practice all the skills they have learnt through the training they have received. 

We celebrated collective worship on Tuesday along with some parents; it was a lovely celebration and the children worked hard on planning the worship.  We also had a visit from Dorothy Gale and performed our Dance form the Heart dance with the rest of the school. Well done to all the dance leaders who worked incredibly hard to teach the routine to the rest of the school. 

Our topic in English is Percy Jackson and it is proving popular. Next week we will continue to read the book in our English sessions.  On Thursday afternoon some children were taking part in a Cricket competition, so those of us who were left decided to create some art. Below are some pictures of the fabulous creations.

       This week we have been improving our cycle safety skills by completing the road element of Bikeability training with the South Ribble cycling team. All the children listened really carefully, and remained safe throughout this important training. 

Today we celebrated our Royal Afternoon tea - the children did a fantastic buffet and made a real effort. What a fantastic end to a busy half term. Well done 6G; have a fabulous half-term break!

This week we have been learning about:

 

In English, we have been exploring the work of J.K.Rowling through the book 'Fantastic Beasts'. We have identified different features of beasts, from habitat to food preferences and gathered some exciting vocabulary to add to our own pieces of work. Next week, we will use our own creations to write a Non Chronological report.

 

The children have been working really hard this week and getting stuck into all the challenges they have been given.  I have been so proud of their efforts towards their SAT tests. Well done everyone; I hope you have a relaxing weekend celebrating the Royal Wedding.

 

Next week we will celebrate the event with our Royal Wedding Lunch on Friday 25th May.
