Wow! What a fabulous few days away! We really have had a fantastic time demonstrating the 3 DYM Rs (Responsibility, Respect and Resilience) whilst having a whole lot of fun along the way!
We think Year Six deserve a little extra beauty sleep to catch up from the last few days so we’re keeping registration open tomorrow until 10am. Please feel free to drop children to school anytime between 8.30-10am. If they have brothers and sisters in other year groups, teachers are aware that they may be late in too. Please do encourage children to come in – we can be tired and sniffly together!
Also, just to remind you that it is non school uniform tomorrow (feel free to wear pyjamas!) and so we ask that children bring in a chocolate item to donate towards the school bazaar!
Thank you 🙂
Day 3: Rock Scrambling and Kayaking
Day 2: Climbing a mountain and bush craft!
Day 1: Navigation and Beach Exploration
BBC Children in Need
Today we dressed in yellow and wore spots and donated £1 each to show our support for the charity, BBC Children in Need.
We spent time in the morning exactly how this charity helps those children most in need before writing thank you notes which we are going to post to them to show our appreciation.
Year 6 have been busy in maths today describing and plotting positions on a full co-ordinate grid!
Team Hartwell and Team Quinn got very competitive whilst demonstrating how to play the game before the children partnered up and battled it out to sink eachother’s ships!
Our classroom quickly became very noisy as the children triumphed with their victories and cried when they came under attack but it was great to hear so many co-ordinates being shouted across the tables!
We are absolutely loving our 15 minutes of class reading at the end of every day!
We have just finished our first text – Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman.
Ask the children some questions about it:
- What is the book about? (Don’t give too much away though!)
- Did you enjoy it and why?
- Who was your favourite character?
- What was your favourite part?
- Would you recommend this book? Who to? Why?
- What rating would you give it?
After counting up the class votes, we have started our new text – Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll.
Ask the children:
- Are you enjoying the book so far? Why?
- Are you looking forward to reading the rest of the book? Why?
- What do you predict is going to happen next?
