Welcome Year 6!

Firstly, I’d like to say a huge well done to everyone this year for sticking with it through a crazy year! You have been amazing and you’ve done everyone proud! 

I would also like to welcome my new class! Hello! A massive warm welcome to 6J! Year 6 is such an exciting year at Primary School and you will have the BEST time! Keep working hard and making sure you’re making the right choices and you’ll be fab! In Year 6 we have some amazing topics to learn such as WW2, the Rainforests, Lowry and adaptations in science 🙂

Year 5 2019-20

This week, we are celebrating our time in Year 5. Although it has been a strange year and we have missed a chunk of time together, we have made so many exciting memories that we can take with us into Year 6. You have all worked so hard this year making amazing progress in school and working online at home.

I’d like you all to tell me what you have enjoyed the most this year? We’ve taken part in Greek workshops, a Science trip to study Space, Medical Mavericks came to visit, we read Goodnight Mr Tom, had fun with the T-Rex smiley reward and so many more amazing activities. What was your favourite thing about Year 5?

This week we have sent you a task on TEAMS to help me to create a new welcome book for the new Year 5’s.  So please make sure you send me any work over this week so I can choose the best one to be printed and displayed on my door! Let’s have a brilliant last week before we can enjoy the summer.

Online Safety

Throughout the year, we have learnt a lot about staying safe online and now is when we need to be remembering everything we have learnt so that when we access the internet to do our work or play games, we are SAFE!

Here is a great Newsround clip to watch all about staying safe online – https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/44074704 .

I have listed 10 top tips for staying safe online: 

1)      Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.

2)      Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you’ve put  a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

3)      Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

4)      Never give out your passwords

5)      Don’t befriend people you don’t know

6)      Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do

7)      Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

8)      Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

9)      Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

10)   If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.

Can you create an online safety poster? Do you have any more tips?

Children’s Art Week 2020

Children’s Art Week is a UK-wide programme run by Engage. Usually, this would take place in school but this year, it will mostly take place online and at home. This programme has three weeks of fun filled art related themes: 

Week 1 – The Natural World

Week 2 – Connecting across generations

Week 3 – Literacy and creative writing

This week, I would like you to spend some time on your own or with a family member creating a piece of Art work. This could be a drawing, painting or even a sculpture. The theme this week is The Natural World. I would love to see lots of your work being posted on the blog or sent to us via Teams. 

Children’s Art Week is a fantastic opportunity to encourage families, children and young people and schools to take part in fun, creative activities that they might not have tried before.

National School Sport Week at Home 2020

The annual National School Sport Week campaign takes place in the last week of June every year to celebrate the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people’s wellbeing.

This year, the Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which will aim to unite the country – families, schools, sport and businesses – in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation.

The UK-wide campaign will challenge people to take on their families, friends and neighbours in virtual sporting challenges – helping them to connect in an unprecedented period of school closures and social distancing.

ACTIVE CHALLENGES – these will all have an emphasis on togetherness, inclusivity and wellbeing. They will be things you can do within the home, and where you can engage in straightforward virtual competition with friends, neighbours and family outside your home.

Please watch the You tube video introduction and then select an activity each day to carry out at home – challenge your brother, sister, mum or dad to carry out the activities too! Can you challenge the neighbours to do these activities too?
