Last week, year 5 and 6 had a fantastic Greek Art day where a specialist art expert came into school to help upper KS2 create a fab piece of artwork that links into Year 6’s Topic – Ancient Greeks.
In year six, we spent all day sewing onto a textile using different techniques and the progress we made in sewing was amazing! Members of 6J were creating patterns that included cross stitching, loop stitching and creating their own patterns to make their design unique!
Take a look at some of our class taking part in the workshop:

At Oxford Grove, we pride ourselves on being a kind, loving, friendly school, where our children and staff are happy and nice to one another!
In Year 6, we have been discussing why it is so important to make sure your actions are always kind. This might been making sure you’re saying positive comments to each other in the classroom, on the playground and being polite to members of staff and your peers around school!
We currently have a new reward in school called the ‘good friend’ where members of staff are looking to see which children deserve to have the special ‘good friend’ prize at the end of the school day! Already in 6J we have had two worthy winners.
What can we do to be kind to each other? Why is so important to be a good friend?

I want to say a huge WELL DONE to my English class for creating some fantastic work for my reading display! Great research about Michael Morpurgo 🙂
Take a look:
Take a look at Mohammed – Zain’s amazing research project! As part of homework, Year 6 were asked to research about our new class author – Michael Morpurgo! This was a fantastic effort by Mohammed, well done I’m super impressed!!
As well as writing in our literacy lessons, it’s super important that we keep the same standards up in our topic/R.E lessons. Therefore, we spend some time creating cross curricular writing!
Take a look at some of our R.E cross curricular writing on our trip to the Hindu Temple – we wrote a recount to describe our trip using our senses! 🙂
In our literacy lessons we have been doing lots of writing! We’ve written diary entries, recounts, detective stories, biographies, formal letters and so much more!
In 6J our writing target is to be more COHESIVE in our writing which means making our writing flow 🙂
We’ve also been looking at the difference between formal and informal writing and when to use the correct tone.
Our next step is to try and include a range of punctuation which will help our writing to flow better!

For our smiley award, we had the amazing opportunity to take part in the farm!
Here we got the chance to feed some goats, chickens, sheep and even an alpaca! We took the alpaca for a walk then had the chance to pet some of the animals. The farmer was super friendly and gave us lots of interesting facts about the animals.
What did you enjoy? What did you learn?

In 6J, we have spent a lot of time outside for our P.E lessons so far this year. We’ve played rounders, basketball and throwing and catching. We’ve discussed why P.E is so important to keep healthy and fit and keep exercising as much as we can.
I’m sure Mr. Neil is looking forward to continuing to teach you P.E this term as we move onto dance and gymnastics!
What’s your favourite part of P.E? What do you like doing the best?

For Remembrance Day this year, Oxford Grove took part in a Poppy Workshop. We discussed why we wear poppies – to remember the brave soldiers that fought in WW1 and WW2. We also found out that this year is really special as it marks 100 years since the end of WW1.
As part of the workshop, we listened to some poems which were written by soliders of the war, we performed these poems by using actions and a range of different voices. We also discovered some new terminology which links to History especially WW1.
I really enjoyed this workshop and I can tell 6J did too!
Can you remember any of the key words?
