Outside fun

We have had a great week! We have all learned so much about Islam, (with the help of Laaibah). The children have made beautiful prayer mats, symetrical stained glass which look amazing on our class window, wrote messages in Arabic and decorated clay hands in the style of Henna tatoos. 

Our week finished with a total soaking for all of us in a class water fight, everyone had great fun and the cold water was welcomed on such a baking hot day.

This week we have been Researching WW2, the children have learned about the leaders during WW2 and what happened during The Blitz. We have been challenged by Mathematical art and have begun our Climate Change Challenge. Outside, the children have adapted games they play to be able to play socially distanced 'Capture the flag', working as a team to win the games.

Week 2 - Return to school

Our Scarecrow Challenge has been completed, the amazing scarecrows have been judged by Mrs Bernto through Zoom. Although the connection was wobbly, it was very exciting for Mrs B to see all the children and admire their hard work. She found it very tricky to pick one winner, but the scarecrow chosen was created by Izaac and Julia, winning personalised scarecrow mugs. Well done all of you, you have worked really hard over the last two weeks!

Next Thursday 14th May is 'Uniform day' to raise money for the NHS. We usually have non-uniform days, however as everyday is non-uniform at the moment, we are having a 'Uniform day'. You just need to wear your uniform on Thursday 14th May and send me a picture of you in uniform, then if you can, ask your parents to go on the NHS fundraising website (link below) and donate to help our county's wonderful NHS carers.

This is Lizzie's herd of 'isolation elephants'. She's made them from recycled milk bottles, I thought you'd like to see them. If you have anything you'd like to share, let me know on Google Classroom.

Lizzie elephants

Dear God,

At this time in hardship, I thank you for being with me every step of the way. I pray that you guide me making decisions, whether small or big, so they can be the right choices. Give me wisdom to be a righteous person like Our Messiah and let me be true to myself. It  may be hard but I am certain that I can get through them with you by my side. This prayer goes through Christ, Our Lord.

Amen

By Marwa.

Spring Term 2

Sapphi has written a lovely prayer, during this difficult time, that I wanted to share with you. 

These are really unusual and challenging times. Google classroom is proving an effective way of keeping in contact with each other, please keep it up!

Every weekday there will be Maths, Literacy and Reading set as well as RE and other subjects during the week. Please try to work on these and turn them in, if you are having trouble you can message on Google classroom.

CAFOD World Gifts

As part of our class Lenten promises to Give, Fast and Pray, Year 6 have decided to raise money to buy a World Gift from CAFOD. At the moment, bees, bed nets and birth certificates are the top gifts the class would like to buy for those who are less fortunate than us. Your children might ask you for a few coins to donate during lent, we will make a decision on what to buy, based on how much we have raised. Thank you in advance for your support. If you would like to check out the possible World Gifts, here is the website address https://worldgifts.cafod.org.uk/

 

CAFOD World Gifts

Year Six have raised a total of £36.24 for CAFOD World Gifts, I will post on Google Classroom with ideas for what you would like to spend the money on.

This week we have begun our topic of Adventures in the Amazon. Our new class reader is The Explorer by Katherine Rundell, the children are enjoying hearing about four youngsters stranded in The Amazon jungle after their plane crashes. 

IMG_20200306_180135

The children spent part of this afternoon creating The Amazon River in our classroom, this included Amazon creatures and descriptive words and phrases for use in our descriptive river writing next week.

The Living Rainforest, Newbury

Year 6 had a great day at the Living Rain Forest. Seeing all the amazing plants and creatures that live in the Amazon was fantastic and we all learnt so much (adults included!). 

We are very proud of the class, several visitors to the centre and members of the staff commented on the brilliant behaviour, general conduct and lovely manners of our children. Well done Year 6, you should be very proud of yourselves!

One World Council

Our One World Council Leaders, Lizzie and Savvy, have reported back to class on up-coming events and ideas discussed at yesterday's OWC meeting. They have requested that we collect plastic bottle tops for a recycled art project, so if you have any shape or size plastic bottle tops, please send them into class with the children.

Thank you!
