Weekly Blog - 18th October 2021

This week 

 

This is the weekly blog.

 

Maths: This week we have been doing a lot of assessments which are seeing if we know some things that we have not learnt. We put folders between us so we couldn't copy. We couldn't talk so we didn't distract anyone but not everyone abided by the rules. 


 

English: In english we have been doing some assessments but not all the time. We also learnt about non chronological reports about a trip we went on Tuesday last week. We went to Mary Arden's farm to see where Shakespear’s mum (Mary Arden) grew up.we have been writing about the trip but in non chronological time order. Mary Arden lived in the time of the black death so there was a lot to talk about.


 

Science:  In science we have been learning about light and how light travels. We have been looking especially at light traveling in a straight line. We have done some experiments to see if light can bend and all we have seen is it only travels in a straight line. We have also been learning about the eye. We have learnt that the cornea is the protective layer on the outside, the iris is the colored part and surprisingly the purple is the blake part which is actually just a hole in your eye. Then the light goes through the lens which focuses it onto the bake of the eye which is called the retina. It then goes through the optic nerve to the brain. Did you know the pitcher the eye gives to the brain is upside down but the brain puts it the right way up. 

 

History: In history  we have been learning about the Tudors. We have mainly been looking at the kings and queens, wars and when things in the tudor happened. We also did tudor quizzes at the beginning and end of the topic to see how much we learned. We have learnt alot about Macbeth because it was set in the time of the Tudors. We also did some role play of the banqueting scene where Macbeth saw the ghost of his dead friend but know one else can see it. 


 

Art-DT: In DT we have been sowing tudor purses. We have to have an applique, we have to have a drawstring and it has to be sturdy to hold things.

 

A Normal Day: In the morning we would come in and we usually have a task to complete. If there is no task we would just carry on with tudor our purses or reading. After that we go on to reading to then english after that brake then maths then lunch then ether art, dt, science,pe or history then daily mile which is when we try and beat are score of laps round the playground which is 324 then home time.

 

Executive Committee and House Captain Elections

Dear Year 5 Children,

As we always do, in September we will elect our 16 House Captains and allocate 8 Executive Committee roles to children in Year 6.

You are free to put yourself forward for both roles if you wish but ultimately you will only be able to have one. The Executive Committee roles will be allocated prior to the House Captain roles.

Attached below are the job descriptions for all of the roles available. Please read these carefully before you consider applying.

There is no deadline yet for you to apply and it will not be done in the first week of the Autumn Term so please do not worry if you want to wait until September to decide.

 

Executive Committee

You need to apply for a specific executive committee role by writing a letter to Mrs Sheepy. You should refer to the job description for that role within your application as well as considering other reasons for why you would be suitable. We will then hold interviews in September with Mrs Sheepy and Mr Grana in the first few weeks of the Autumn Term. We will then elect House Captains after this.  

 

House Captains

You need to prepare a brief speech that you are happy to say in front of a selection of your peers as well as class teacher saying why you are suitable and referencing the job description. There will then be a vote to decide who will be the house captain representatives for each house. Each house will have four house captains (generally two boys and two girls).  

Welcome to our Year 6 blog.

Come here for weekly updates.
