Hi Year 6

Hope you and your families are all well. smiley

I have been checking your blog posts regularly, and also thank you for sending me your project work and stories so far.

Some of you still need to access Purple Mash and e-mail me any project work, so please just try to do a bit each day to keep your learning going.  You also have the packs we gave you in the final week which are full of tasks you can complete at home. I'm hoping you have been working on these too.

I will add a new timetable in a few days time, as well as a video message for you all to see. wink

In the meantime:

* Please keep adding to the reading blog;

* Send me more stories and project work.

I will soon upload your maths answers for you to check your work as well.

Take care and I hope to hear from you all soon,

Missing you all

Mrs Mills x

Welcome to Year 6 – Class Succeed!   

"Coming together is the beginning, keeping together is progress. Working together is success!"

 

There are thirty of us in Succeed Class this year, and we are working hard during our last year at OLSA! Mrs Mills and Miss Brown support us in our learning every day, with Miss Ward and Miss Milner working with us some afternoons.

 

Now we are in Year 6, we have lots of responsibilities around the school including being good role models for each other and the younger children; taking the lead in School Council, Gift Team, Internet Warriors and assisting in assemblies – and representing the school at a range of sporting events.

 

This year, we will be finding out all about World War 2; learning about the environment in our ‘Coasts’ topic; exploring the delights and dangers of the Amazon; designing and presenting our own inventions as entrepreneurs in our ‘Money Makers’ topic; discovering the Arabian nights tales and the history of Baghdad; and learning why the Pendle Witch trials were an important part of Lancashire history. All this, as well as preparing for SATS and our not-to-be-missed musical production in the Summer term!

 

There will be opportunities for our families to join us for assemblies and topic afternoons during the year.  We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.

 Gawthorpe Hall

 

We had a great time recently at Gawthorpe Hall learning all about Shakespearean times.

We joined in activities such as learning and saying Shakespearean phrases and performing a soliloquy, which was fun and gave our budding actors a chance to hone their skills! 

We also had a 'sword play' session, where we found out all about different moves and manoeuvres that people would have used in the 1500's and 1600's.

A guide helped us to learn about Shakespeare's timeline, and some of the important events in his life.

We created some artistic 'black work' embroidery, in the Tudor style brought to Britain by the Spanish princess Katherine of Aragon, first wife of King Henry VIII. 

We had a fun morning - Gawthorpe Hall is a beautiful building with lots of treasures, and the staff who led our day were brilliant.

We had a great time on World Book Day! We spent time in each KS2 class to participate in different activities.  In our class, we are just starting to study Macbeth so we studied the famous witch scene and wrote our own spell poems.
