Good Friend Award

This week I have received the good friend award.By being a good friend, I was nominated by Ashleigh in my Y6 class. How that happened was during maths I helped her with her work because she was stuck on an percentage equation. Ashleigh,who nominated me, is also a good friend of mine too.


I won the good friend award this week because I was nominated by India. India said that I was a good friend because when she is feeling upset or angry I make her happy. I was very happy to receive this award because it was the second time! Katie has also nominated me.

James Nicol

James Nicol visited Oxford Grove on the 25th January. He did an assembly in the morning that was half an hour long. Then in the afternoon we had a wonderful workshop with him. It was very fun because we got to be authors for 45minutes. We also wrote our own magical story.  We were all influenced by the items that we picked from James Nicol’s box.

On 25th January James Nicol came in to our school and had an assembly with us. He was really funny and nice. After that, in the afternoon he told us about his books and his childhood. Then he got a box full of different objects and we had to pick three things out and look at them. When we had finished looking at them we had to make up a story about what they were. It was really fun to write a story.

Writing in Year 6

 This half term we are focusing on writing biographies and autobiographies in our English lessons. We have already started by looking at the key features of a biography in our guided reading lessons and we have written biographies about the star of our class novel – Alex Rider.

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be interviewing and writing biographies about each other for our ‘Meet the Stars’ display and researching our favourite celebrities and sports personalities to write biographies about too.

Can you remember the key features of a biography? Who are you hoping to research and find out about?
