Week 2

Another fantastic week in Choral Class! This week, the children had their first trip to Failand for PE and it was lovely! The sun was shining and the sky was blue and most importantly, the children were excellent teammates! We delved into some hockey and rugby skills and had the best time up there! 

We have enjoyed reading our new book study - Holes - and exploring the vocabulary used to describe Camp Green Lake. We are going to be writing our very own setting descriptions next week! Perhaps you could ask your child about some of the words and phrases we have discussed:

barren   desolate   vast   water spigot   neglected   wasteland   convict 

We used the description in the book to identify information about the Yellow-Spotted Lizards and then drew some ourselves!

We enjoyed finding the 'odd one out' in science, using Linnaeus' classification key and even managed to identify some species of buttercup and wild cat! In computing, we started thinking about online safety and will be continuing this unit throughout the term. 

Week 1

Welcome back! What a wonderful week we have had; it has been amazing to see the children and welcome them back to school. This week, we have done lots of team building and settling back into school. We have warmed up our brains with some problem solving, enjoyed playtimes on our new playground, explored the different kingdoms in science and so much more! We are so proud of all of year 6 for being such a positive and amazing team who have made us so excited to be back. 

See you on Monday!
