Hello and welcome to the class page of 6 Holly. Please keep checking our page often to see what we are doing in class throughout our final year at Berkeley.
Our PE days will be Monday and Tuesday this term. This may change due to such things as the weather so we would be very grateful if you could bring your PE kit on a Monday and leave it until Friday. Thanks in advance.
Homework will be handed out to the children every Thursday and this will need to be completed and handed back no later than the following Tuesday. Children will now be following the menu system for their homework. As we are in Year 6, and SATs are fast approaching, we shall also be including maths and English revision as part of our homework. Spelling tests will happen every Friday. Reading records will also be checked each Friday by myself and/or the TA within the classroom. Reading records must be signed to be counted. Thanks again for your support with your child's homework throughout such an important year.
A Rather Royal Party
To celebrate the end of our SATs, we had a lovely time celebrating the royal wedding. We enjoyed lots of royal themed wedding activities: icing biscuits in red, white and blue; pinning the tail on the corgi and the crown on the princess; learning about the royals through a quiz; trying to find the culprit in a 'Who stole the wedding ring?' mystery maths game; taking selfies with the wedding party props; designing our very own wonderful wedding cakes and there was even a little bit of role play. A great time was had by all!
SATs are over!!
6 Holly, and the other year 6 classes, have had such a hard working year so far and they couldn't have made us teachers prouder this week. They all took their tests very seriously and we hope all their hard work will soon pay off! You can see by the first photograph how relieved we all were on Thursday, after our last test! We then got a lovely, delicious ice cream as a treat! Very nice.
Our Lovely Reading Buddies
Our lovely reading buddies have been working really hard over the past few months. They are asking great questions and really supporting each other with their reading and understanding.
WE HAVE A NEW (VERY WELL DESERVED) BUDDY!!
Whilst Mia has been working hard to support her peers all year, it is now official! We have another buddy in our class and what a perfect example of one she is too! Excellent work, Mia! Very well done!
She is joining this lovely lot below who have done an excellent job this year!
The snow today made the school look beautiful! We all had a great time playing in the snow this afternoon!
6 Holly had a lovely time today (27.2.18) taking part in the West End Dance Workshop. Our workshop was based around the story from Alice in Wonderland. We spent time creating dance moves to tell the story and worked independently, in pairs and in large groups. Take a look at the images above to see what we got up to. It was an excellent way to spend the afternoon.
As we are being 'active learners' in year 6, we all played a very exciting memory game to help us understand the phenomenon of the greenhouse gas effect. We were running around the classroom all lesson and having lots of fun, all whilst learning lots.
Recently, 6 Holly (along with 5 Holly) had a wonderful day at Sherwood Forest. We spent the day orienteering, shelter building and walking to find the Major Oak! We met a lovely man named Bob and he told us all about the forest, as well as how to keep safe during the day. Have a look below and see what we got up to!
We have been being very successful in 6 Holly recently. Emily and Jayden have both received a Celebration Assembly award for their hard work and kindness to other children!
Jacob showed he was a whizz at iPad Scrabble on his visit to a potential secondary school and bagged himself a book voucher in the process! Well done Jacob!
Mehrab, Aimee, Lexie and Samika have been working hard earning Dojos to gain the Silver Award - they are all very well on the way to earning their Gold Award! Keep up the hard work!
Jayden was also very surprised when he received a trophy for winning the Year 5/6 boys cross-country race! Well done, Jayden!
Kacper has also been working hard on his Lexia and has gained his next certificate!
A big well done goes to Matias, who has worked his socks off this week on Lexia to achieve his next certificate - plus he is already well on with the next level! Great work Matias.
