Hello and welcome to the home of 6 Holly.
We cannot wait to show you all that we get up to throughout what is a very important year here at Berkeley Primary School.
Our Awesome Autumn
Kimi has had a great time recreating Normanby Hall for her homework project. What a great piece of art!
The children have been working on their rounding in maths. Eloise and Ryley really enjoyed their maths lesson on the whiteboard. Great maths, you two!
Road Safety Drama Workshop
We had a great morning with Miss Jeanie learning all about how to stay safe on the roads and pavements around us. We had to think about all kinds of dangers that could face us, for example when we are on our phones and possibly not paying attention to the traffic around us.
The children have been working especially hard on their spelling recently. Here we are playing Hangman to help us learn the spellings for this week.
Well done, Bartosz!
A great start to the term and a very well deserved certificate in assembly.
Our House Captains
A huge well done to all of the children who were voted for by their peers to become a House Captain. I am sure they shall represent their houses brilliantly. Out of the nine chosen, four were from 6 Holly so we were very proud of ourselves for delivering such great, winning speeches. Well done to Jessie, Violet, Bartosz and Logan. Just look how proud they are!
Well done, Ryley!
A huge well done to Ryley for becoming the first proud owner of a certificate from the celebration assembly. As this was the first one, we did things a little differently. Ryley earned this for making an excellent start to the year! It was a tricky decision as all of 6 Holly have done so well this week! Keep it up, Ryley!
Well done to Ella, Afia and Logan for earning their Reading Bingo certificates for some excellent reading throughout the summer holidays.
6 Holly have taken very well to DEAR time in their new classroom. They really seem to gain enjoyment from the simple pleasure of reading and do so in a very well behaved manner. Here they are enjoying their reading time; especially the use of the reading area.
As always when we first come back to school, we have been revising our knowledge and understanding of place value. Here were are playing a game which helps us do just that. Well done to Oscar and Logan for matching the most pairs.
Science Electricity Lessons
We made a great start to our science topic this term - electricity. We had lots of fun experimenting with wires, cells (batteries), switches and bulbs. We had to solve lots of problems, including how we could make a circuit where we can turn one switch off whilst the other stays on. It wasn't easy but well done to Sam and Finley who worked out that it had to be a parallel circuit first! A great lesson. Well done 6 Holly.
