PE Kit: Tuesday and Thursday

Home Learning

English: Have a go at a 10 minute test and remember to keep practising your personal Spelling List - it has grown this week!

Maths: Have a go at any pages on fractions not yet completed; we have now covered all of the skills lessons and will be spending next week embedding this by applying our understanding to solve a range of mixed problems.

Technology: Thinking about our fairground rides unit, start to collect any packaging which may be of use. Next week we will begin to design your model so why not start thinking about what you might like to try and do - research different rides online which use rotating mechanisms.

A Taste of our Learning

Maths Buddies

One Kind Word

Having thought about the different roles we might play in bullying scenarios and how our actions and words can make a positive difference, Year 6 had a go at creating some poetry on the theme of ‘One Kind Word’. Many of our discussions this week were about celebrating difference and deepening our understanding of how people may be different. We thought about positive changes we can make to create a more inclusive society, for example the evolution of fashion towards gender neutral styles and whether the secondary school EARA group’s push for same sex toilets would be positive for everyone. Year 6 were particularly interested in learning about the range of learning differences faced by their peers .

Children in Need

Dressed in their best onesies and pjs, Year 6 took part in the Children in Need workout by Joe Wicks on Friday.

 

 

 

 

 

Remembrance

Year 6 led our Remembrance Service this week, sharing some history of the event before reading out a selection of their own poetry on the theme of 'Remembrance'. It was a lovely, moving reflection for the occasion, which the children handed with a mature attitude. We then joined the BBC coverage at 11am to respect the 2 minutes silence. Earlier in the week we had thought about the symbolism behind the different coloured poppies on sale and where the money raised goes for each one. Can you remember the meaning of the different poppies?

Reading Buddies

Fab Falconry

Thank you to FoLS for funding a great session with Fab Falconry today. We loved meeting the birds and learning about their differences. Getting to hold a barn owl ourselves was a real highlight!

Art Gallery

This half term we have used birds as a stimulus for close observational drawing and a study in texture. Above is a small selection of the work created; we started with monochrome feather sketches, moved to pencil sketches of different birds and finally making clay tiles (coasters) which reflected the patterns and textures studied.

Street Dance

We have started our unit on Street Dance and this week the children worked in groups to put together a short series of dance moves. There was some great team work and serious attitude on show!

House Captains

 

Wow! What an incredible range of videos we were treated to by our 18 House Captain candidates this morning; I just wish I could share them all with you! Congratulations to all those who ran, you did yourselves proud, and a special congratulations to our newly elected Captains (pictured).

Maths Around the World

Meet the teacher

We discussed the home learning expectations for the year (see curriculum newsletter at the bottom of the page), our focus on independence and responsibility, underpinned by the Prefect status (see inside Reading records), and shared an Internet Safety presentation (click here and scroll down), which led into our new class e-safety charter (see bottom of page).

Successful learners

Year 6 have designed their new 'Successful Learners' display for the year ahead. They thought about the qualities that would be most beneficial in preparing them for success in Year 6 and their secondary transition. They are already demonstrating many of these qualities!


Welcome to Year 6!

I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and are ready and raring to start your final year at Langrish! We are looking forward to having you back and hearing all about what you have been up to. Remember to check your passport (copy attached below) to see that you have packed what you need and can start the year prepared to succeed. See you on Monday!
