Year 6

Learning Challenges Thursday 24th September:

 

English: Can I identify effective features of discussion texts?

English Reading: Can I provide a justified answer?

Maths: Can I solve multi-step addition and subtraction problems?

Music: Can I make music using unusual instruments?

Computing:  Can I begin to write my own podcast script?

Oranges in No Man's Land Chapter 5: Reading task

LC: Can I provide a justified answer?

Ayesha meets Samar and granny's condition becomes more serious.

Some questions for you to consider:

Warm up:

1) What makes Samar different from Ayesha?
2) What is the name of the game Samar likes to play?
3) Why do you believe Samar and Ayesha 'never noticed the people who hurried past to and from the upper floors of the building' as they play together?

Main reading activity for this chapter:

Our focus this week in English has been on discussions and giving justification for your views. When you justify, you give evidence and you don't just say 'I agree' or 'I disagree'. You showed a fantastic start with that in class earlier this week. My question for you is:

What would you do now, if you were Ayesha? What could you do?

Try to put yourself into the character's position: this is called empathising. Notice I used modal verbs there! Think about what could be done, given the fact that this story is not happening in a peaceful place but rather in the middle of the Lebanese Civil War and terrible things have already happened to Ayesha's family.

Dear parents and children,

 

I cannot thank you enough for all of your support and interest in education through your time at The Trinity but certainly over the past two years that I have known you all.  To take these children from Y5 to Y6 (after 5 years in the same classroom!) has been a privilege, despite the circumstances we find ourselves in at the end of this school year.  I will miss each and every pupil dearly.  Their names, faces and characters will be etched in my memory forever.  This might be farewell but I am sure that I will see them around our school community.  This is what The Trinity is about: community.  Our school sits in the heart of a community like no other- I can say that with certainty as I worked in so many different schools before finding my home here!

 

Parents, your children have written many wonderful things in cards to me about inspiration and encouragement.  This is wonderful to read and hear but it is they who are the truly inspiring ones in this classroom.  Their imagination and effort takes them into the most incredible places, their willingness to engage and respect learning has carried them through the many challenges that the end of primary schooling presents.  They did it all with a smile (mostly) and in the process did you proud and me as their teacher.

 

 Children, things will be different when you start your new schools in September, different than it ever was for your parents or myself.  Our world is going through a difficult time.  If the people of the world show anything approximate to the determination to succeed that you have this year, we will progress rapidly!  It is you who remind all of us why it is important to nurture the planet and all of those on it.  No other species is like us in that way so when I say that you are truly unique, I have the scientific proof to back it up!

 

Parents and children, I thank you all for the wonderful gifts and kind words.  I wish you and all of your family and friends the best of luck for now and the future.

Information

 

During this difficult time, as a staff (including many with their own children) we all understand that parents will be anxious to see that their children are continuing to learn.  With the small amount of time we had to do this before school 'closed' and with the advantages brought about by technology, we have been able to give children a range of resources to access.  We have provided work packs with plenty of tasks to complete.  These will work best when an evenly-paced and a sensible, realistic approach is taken to what children can do whilst working at home.  The work packs are only one element of learning during this time: Seesaw has regular activities posted, there will be appropriate resources posted on our school website and also shared via our Twitter page.  The children also have access to several online platforms that are regularly updated.  When children are not able to access these, we will do our best to accommodate this (as we would do under 'normal' circumstances).

 

First and foremost in our work, the wellbeing of our pupils -everything we would define as 'safeguarding'- is paramount and will never take second place to the numerous demands on their minds during school time.  Therefore, it is important that children are primarily kept safe and reassured, whilst not hidden from the fact that this is an extremely unusual time in our world history.  We must all do our best to ensure that they are cared for, comfortable and in the correct place emotionally for learning to take place.  This would be true no matter what we face as a society. 

 

I sincerely wish the very best to you, your family and everyone around you.

 

Thank you,

 

Mr Sinnott

 

Welcome to Year 6.

Miss Bedson, Mr Sinnott, Mrs Maher, Mrs Georgeson, Miss Connor

 

Year 6 is an extremely important year where we value every individual and work as a team. The children are encouraged to try their best and are given every opportunity to reach their full potential and create some memorable experiences.

This year we have a great deal of new learning to undertake, as well as revise all of our previous learning in preparation for our SATs. In Year 6 we ensure all our learning focuses on our school values to ensure our pupils become more determined, resilient, empowered, appreciative and motivated learners. Following the core values will enable them to flourish and give them the skills to be lifelong learners.

Our pupils mature so much during Year 6 and they thoroughly enjoy the added responsibility Year 6 brings. Younger pupils look up to us and we encourage Year 6 pupils to be excellent role models. I would like to thank all parent/carers for your valued support and I am sure this will yet again be another enjoyable and successful year.

Spring: We went out to our local area to see the how it is being damaged.
