I hope you are all well and have enjoyed your Christmas break. When the teachers were in school yesterday we were looking forward to an exciting new term but things have changed.
From tomorrow your home learning will be via Microsoft Teams. You will need to access the Year 6 Home Learning Team for any posts and all your work will be in the assignment tab.
Each of you will have an individual channel in which you can contact us if you have any questions or problems - this can be found in the 6B Communication Team.
Take care and good luck with your home learning.
I hope you're all enjoying a good rest and break this half term holiday.
Just to let you know, our PE days next term will be Thursdays (Premier Sport) and Fridays (class PE) so please come into school on those days already dressed for PE. Please also remember to bring a warm change of clothes in case the weather is against us. You can leave these in school on your peg if that makes life easier.
Don't forget to dress warmly in class as well as the windows will need to stay open. Light layers are best (and trousers not shorts) which trap the warm air better than one thick layer and are easier to balance your temperature with.
Have a lovely rest of the holidays and I'll see you next week!
Victorian School Afternoon
6B went back in time to find out what life would have been like in a Victorian school.
We started off by lining up on the playground boys separate to girls. The boys went in first of course and (after having their hands and shoes inspected for cleanliness) sat at the front of the class. The girls hands were also inspected (as was the neatness of their hair) before sitting at the back. The girls' hands were much cleaner!!
During the afternoon, we tried copperplate handwriting - though Ma'am was kind and didn't tie the lefthanded children's arms to their sides to make them use the correct hand! After that, we practised our weights and measures reciting them again and again. The Headmaster paid us a visit and we all stood up when he entered. He tested us on the measurements and - horror!! - some of us got it wrong and had to wear the dunce cap!!
After arithmetic, we had history - which meant reciting the kings and queens of England then the United Kingdom again and again and again. Some of us did not pronounce our words clearly enough and again got the Dunce cap!
At the end of the day we made Victorian school houses and playgrounds out of cardboard, which wasn't very Victorian but still fun to do and the closest we could get to typical Victorian crafts at the moment.
Everyone loved wearing the dunce cap so it is still in the classroom ready for use when needed!!
