Year 6

Week Beginning 6th July. 2nd Greatwood Week. 

 

As a result of having such a positive week doing Greatwood based activities I've decided to carry on with this theme next week. Therefore all children within Year 6 can wear outdoor clothes that are appropriate for these activities. There are some pictures below to show some of the activities we have been up to. I have updated some extra activities for home learning and we're still going through King Alfred transition activities. 

 

Take care,

 

Mr Franklin

Year 5 Transition to Year 6.

Transition letter to the Year 5 children.

RE: this activity is based looking at The Sacraments of Initiation are: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Please scroll from slide 13 to 16. For slide 16 consider how the image links to Baptism. Also think about how coming together in a ceremony as a community links to the church.

Welcome to Year 6

This week the children have been planning their own story; from science fiction to haunted house to secret agent. For their half-term homework they have a choice whether to publish what they've done. They might want to improve what they have or start all over again, it's their choice. This is not compulsory but is a great opportunity to show how much we enjoy writing at St Josephs and some have already registered! https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4n1HgL2GFCWDmCtq9Sx5kKB/500-words-2020

There's a drought at the River Nile. The Ancient Egyptians must come together from Vizier to craftsmen to farmers and everyone in the community. A plan must be formed to save their civilisation. Great role playing today with all members having their chance to put their respective needs across and come up with the right way forward.

Today we developed our understanding of how social media platforms such as: Tik Tok; Twitch and other gateways are being used to as a form of cyberbullying. We must remember that technology is a great thing but the discussions of how to use them responsibly must take place at school and at home.

Dear parents, here is the key information about our upcoming book fair.
