Still staying safe

Hello everyone

I hope you and your families are well. This week seems like it is going to be a very mixed weather week. We have been lucky so far that we have had such nice weather to get outside in but now we'll need to think of ways to occupy our minds indoors a little bit more. On Seesaw you will see a couple of extra activities called 'Optional extras' or 'I'm bored!' and there are plenty of opportunities on there if you find yourself stuck inside this week.

School closures

Hello,

Firstly, a huge well done to everyone and thank you for your continued positivity and flexibility during a challenging time.

If your child will be working at home for the forseeable future, they will be leaving school with a home learning pack tomorrow (Friday). The pack has been designed to offer opportunities for your child to continue learning the knowledge and skills expected of them in the National Curriculum. We would encourage you to explore this pack with your child as they may require some support from you with this. We have included a model timetable of how to provide some structure for their day. You may wish to use this or devise your own.

Continuing to learn

Firstly, a huge well done to everyone and thank you for your continued positivity and flexibility during a challenging time.

If your child will be working at home for the forseeable future, they will be leaving school with a home learning pack tomorrow (Friday). The pack has been designed to offer opportunities for your child to continue learning the knowledge and skills expected of them in the National Curriculum. We would encourage you to explore this pack with your child as they may require some support from you with this. We have included a model timetable / timings of how to provide some structure for their day. You may wish to use this or devise your own and we would really like to hear or see how you are getting on through using Twitter. Look out for information on how to do this in the pack.

If your child is continuing to attend school after this week, you are not required to take any action in relation to their learning. School will continue to organise this.

Spring in Year 6

Thank you to all of those who attended our Right Royal Show – the children really enjoyed performing for you and gained a lot of confidence from doing so.

Writing

After returning from February half term, we have continued developing characters and story settings using the circus as our inspiration. At the moment the children are busy writing up their dramatic quest stories and soon we will be moving back to non-fiction to write balanced arguments. In preparation for SATS we are regularly recapping grammar terminology and usage – children will be bringing home regular grammar homework from this week.

Autumn in Benz

Well Autumn term has been a very busy one for the children in Class Benz.

 

Our learning has taken us on a journey to the other side of the world – South America. Class Benz have learnt that South America is a fascinating, huge continent where there are many different people with many different ways of life. Of course, we investigated the Amazon Rainforest and understood why it is such an important resource to our planet and why it is under threat but we also delved deeper into South America. We discovered the vast range of landscapes: salt deserts, mountains, homes on lakes, volcanoes, glaciers and ancient temples to name a few! It is fair to say the children have been enraptured and awe-struck at the beauty of the continent. We have also embedded some geographical concepts such as how populations can be dense or sparse. Class Benz also have developed a good understanding of why geography is so important to them in the 21st century – ask them to explain. 

The writing we have been doing has focussed on making sure we are secure with our punctuation and grammar as well as crafting some exciting texts. So far we have written diaries from South American adventurers and used our experiences at East Barnby to write further diaries. We wrote formal letters to many important people about the issue of recycling and are eagerly waiting for replies. As we moved into November and dark nights drew in we began creating creepy ghost stories and are now trying hard to work on editing our work to check it makes sense and has a strong impact on the reader.

How did the First World War affect lives on the home front?

As our theme is Overcoming Challenge this half term, we have been inspired by the challenges faced by millions of people across the world during World War One. In class we have been particularly focussed on the questions of ‘How did the First World War change peoples’ lives?’ and ‘What was life like during the war for families and children on the Home Front?’ 

 

Amazingly, we have discovered that many women until 1914, were not in employment. However, due to the numbers of men that had to go and fight, there was no option but to ask the women to do the traditionally men’s jobs. These were roles such as factory workers, bus drivers and nurses both at home and on the front. We also used our researching skills to discover more about the women the world remembers and what they did during this time that was so important – ask us about Eva Haverfield, Elsie Inglis and Edith Cavell. There’s still more learning to do however and we’re looking forward to investigating the roles children had during this time and how their lives were affected by the war. We have also produced some lovely silhouette artwork as part of our creative Remembrance and are looking forward to sharing this with you during our landing on 7th December.
