As I am sure you’ve heard on the news by now. Schools will be closed for some pupils from Monday. The Government have put this measure in place to help prevent the spread of the covid-19 virus and to keep you all safe – whether in school or at home.
From Monday, your learning will be uploaded to our class page on the website for you to complete each day. I will also be adding extra activities you might choose to do as I know you’ll want to stay busy. Physical exercise, fresh air and helping whoever is looking after you is a top priority too.
You will also have heard that any testing has been cancelled – no SATs! However, I want you to remember that, while SATs have been cancelled and school is closed, your future is still very much ahead of you. You have a right to a fantastic education and to be able to achieve your dreams. High school is still waiting for you so keep up the amazing work you have been doing and set being as prepared as you can for secondary school firmly in your sights. Yes, this does mean Maths, Reading and Writing as well as Geography, History, Arts and P.E.!
Remember, your main objective is to stay happy and healthy and I very much look forward to seeing you all when schools are re-opened.
Welcome to Class 6
Your class teacher is Miss Wood. Mrs Shaw and Mrs Leese are our teaching assistants.
We are looking forward to having lots of fun this year with great topics for learning, exciting trips and lots of responsibilities to prepare us for high school.
We are looking forward to being buddies and our end of year residential visit to Standon Bowers.
Charlie and Emily are our Head pupils
Millie and George are our deputies
The topics this year are Water, World War I and II, Ancient Greece and Production.
In science we will be learning about living things and their habitats; materials and their properties; evolution and inheritance; and the human body.
as part of British Science Week we've helped build hedgehog habitats at Keele cemetery and have built bird boxes for the school grounds.
Today we had an Ancient Greek day to start our new topic with a WOW.
We all dressed up and enjoyed drama, learning about how the Greek Empire formed and puzzling with Archimedes Stomachion. In the afternoon we tasted Greek foods and learned about the Greek Gods and goddesses.
Thank you to Cossie's mum who provided us with some authentic Greek foods to try.
thanks to all the parents who came today to see what the children have been learning as part of their topic. We hope you enjoyed it, class 6
we have been learning about the poem Dulce et decorum est. Today we had a first go at performing it.
Afer our visit to the farm, we used rationing recipes to cook with. We enjoyed our trench stew, bread and carrot cake.
We even got to use beef and eggs from the farm
This week, we started our World Wars topic with a visit to Park Hill Farm. Thank you to Farmer John and Farmer Pat for giving us a fantastic experience as evacuees.
We learned all about life on the farm and the roles children would have played on a working farm. Farmer Pat took us on a tour of the farm and we imagined how evacuee children would have passed the time.
We had a session on rationing. It was surprising to see how little meat people were given and portion sizes were a lot smaller than the lunches we went on to eat.
Back at school, we will be completing some farmer's maths using imperial measures and writing home in the role of evacuees.
Thank you to all the children for learning souch and doing us proud with exemplary behaviour
Today we've been to Keele lakes as part of our water topic, we also linked to living things and their habitats in science. We had a great time: seeing carp, ducks and the evidence of treecreepers. The terrapin didn't make an appearance though. Thank you to Sarah Taylor from the university for arranging a great day.
