Hi Year 6,

Well done all of you for getting to this last week of primary school, your time at OLSA is almost complete and all of you are ready and prepared for your move to high school. It has been lovely for Miss Brown and I to see you over the last few weeks, and to spend some time with you before you leave, and begin the next exciting journey in your lives.

 

We have the girls joining us again for this final week, as well as the keyworker group, but we are hoping to see all the boys for the class picnic on Wednesday from 11.30-12.30. It will be great to have our class back together again, even for a short time.

 

We want to wish you all the best of luck as you leave us to start high school. We are proud of you all and we know you are all going to try hard to be the best you can be, and impress your new teachers with your effort, your knowledge, your kind and caring natures, and your positive attitudes. Thank you for being an amazing class, and thank you to your parents for being so supportive too. We have loved teaching you and we will miss you lots. Good luck everyone, and keep in touch so we can find out all about your successes in the future!

 

Keep smiling and see you all again soon,

Mrs Mills and Ms Brown smiley

RE/Art

You have been recently studying the importance of early Baghdad as a hub for education, philosophy and collaboration between people.

Take a look through the Islamic geometry powerpoint from the Additional Resources. See how different patterns are created using mainly circles and squares.

Complete Lesson 1 from the powerpoint to copy and create 'The Khatam'.

You will need to print out or copy the circle grid template in order to create your pattern.

Tuesday

PSHE - Transition

Think about the type of learner you are.

What helps you to learn best?

Reflect on your learning styles and complete the 'Learner' sheet from Additional Resources.

Think about what you could do to try and be a better learner next year, as you move into Y7.

Wednesday

PSHE - Money and budgets

I have kept this task on here this week to give the rota girls an opportunity to complete the activity.

1) Think about the following questions and the answers you would give.

If you had £5 to spend, what would you buy?

If you had £50 to spend, what would you buy?

If you had £100 to spend, what would you buy?

If you wanted to buy an expensive item, you might have to save up for a while.

2) Write a list to explain all the different ways that you could save your money (Eg. in a money box).

3) What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different ways of saving money that you have listed?

4) Explain why you think it is easy or hard to save money.

5) Why do you think items are valued at different prices? (Why are some things cheap, and others so expensive?)

Thursday

PSHE continued -

Imagine you were organising a school fete, and you were pricing up all the different objects on the stalls.

What stalls would you have? What would you charge in order to help raise funds for your school? Think about the value of real items.

You might include home baked cakes and goodies, old books, puzzles and toys. Competition stalls such as tombola and raffles. Can you think of anything else?

 

Present your ideas for your fete which you are organising and explain your own decisions. You can present your work however you like (poster, powerpoint, list...).

 

Friday

RE

During your time at OLSA, we have celebrated the 5 W's during Assembly every week, thinking about how our school community has shown welcome, witness, word, worship and welfare to others.

 

Reflect on all the different ways we can promote these 5 W's, and how we can be good role models for younger children through our actions.

Design a poster for the school, giving tips on how we can follow the 5 W's through how we act and behave. The younger children can learn from your ideas.

 

Enjoy your week 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.

World Book Day

 World Book Day

 

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.
