Mini sports day fun!

On Wednesday, Mr Gill kindly arranged a mini sports day for the children who have been attending school. They had a great time competing against each other! They started with the javelin throw, then they moved on to a vertex throw, followed by a short distance sprint and a long distance run. The children had such a great time; they didn’t even care when they lost their shoes during the race!

Summer Home Learning

Hi Eagles!

I cannot believe that this is your very last week of primary school! It’s a little different to how it would usually be I know, but we are still trying to make it as special as we can for you.

I am looking forward to seeing more of your friendly faces this week as I know some of you have signed up to pop in for the day! As well as this I just want to remind you about the picnic and assembly. All of you in Year 6 are welcome to come into school on Thursday at 12:30pm for a picnic on the field (we will provide the food) and at 2:00pm on Friday for a special leavers assembly. You will need picking up on both days at 3:00pm.

I really do hope that we see you all on those two days! We would really love to!

Over the holidays you might like to do some work just to keep your brains working until September! Here I have attached an English and a maths booklet that you can work your way through.

We will miss you all terribly Year 6. We wish you the very best of luck in your new schools and as soon as we are able to we will definitely be throwing you the party that you all deserve!!

Global warming

Year 6 have been learning all about the environment; in particular – global warming. They have been studying how our planet is changing and what affects unbalanced gases are having on our climates. Today we carried out an experiment to simulate the ice caps melting. Our results were conclusive…we now know that if we don’t make some serious changes to the way we do things on our planet, it will be destroyed!

Writing Task
Your writing task this week is slightly different. At school we are going to be writing a letter to our new secondary schools, and I would like those of you at home to do the same.

The letter is going to be all about you! These are the things you should think about before writing it:
– What makes you happy? Can you list 10 things?
– Who are you? What is your name? What is your personality like?
– Your family and pets – who have you been living with during lockdown? Who do you get on with the best and why? Do you have any pets?
– Primary school – what school have you been to? What lessons do you like? Do you have any special or funny memories?
– Hobbies – what do you do for fun? What hobbies/activities did you do during lockdown? Is there anything you have missed doing?
– Your new school – what things are you looking forward to? Are you worried about anything? What would you like your new teachers to know about you?
– Ambitions – what hopes and dreams do you have for the future? Are there any jobs you think you would like to do? Are there any places you would like to visit?

Your task this week is to write the information that would be included in a leaflet for Willaby Castle. The purpose of the leaflet is to attract visitors and encourage families to spend the day at the castle.

When planning your information leaflet, you need to consider the following:
– What will your title be?
– What activities are there and who will they appeal to?
– Practicalities – times, costs, directions, etc.
– Why should people visit?
– What persuasive words and phrases could you use?

Please see the Year 6 Writing Criteria to remind yourselves of what devices you should be using in your writing.

‘School at 7:00am!?’ Writing Task

Tibet
Dear Governors,
We, the children, have heard about your plan of staring school at 7am and finishing at 5pm. We are writing to you to inform you that we cannot accept this rule being put into any school. This is because it will be difficult for children and teachers to cope with this change.

Teachers will be overworked due to long work hours and will not be able to get enough sleep. Children, on the other hand would not be able to spend enough quality time with their families. Out of school activities will have to be delayed. Breakfast and dinner schedules will be shifted or altered. Children will be tired in school which will stop them from learning enough knowledge. There will be a lot of incomplete homework coming to school since there will not be enough time to do it. Schools do not want that. We do not either. That is why we hope this letter will make the needed change.

Yours Sincerely,
The Children

Dear Governors,
I am writing to you to bring attention to your latest decision about the school days continuing longer than usual. First, our schedule at home will be changed, such as, our breakfast and to change in our required clothes. Secondly, we will not have enough sleep at 7 in the morning because then we will be tired so we can’t work harder at school. Me and the others can’t go to school for a long time.
This is not okay for us children to go to school at this time because it will probably tire us out. If this isn’t right, which it definitely isn’t, then I am asking you to decrease the time for all the children permitted to stay in school back to normal because we can’t handle too much time at school, it will be taking up too much of our spare time on the weekend when we will not be working as much and can at least relax for a while.
So I suggest you solve this problem, before it happens to every single child in the school, including me. I really think you should think about it and if your changes are good for the reputation of the school because then things such as the attendance or best class wouldn’t be so great. So, I am asking you to think back on your decisions about children staying in school longer because it could affect their after school clubs as well. So I want to ask you again, is this decision good for the school or do you need to think back on your actions? I hope you can make the right choice.

Yours Sincerely
R. Ryan

Dear Governors,
I am writing to you to convince you that the proposed idea of a longer school day is incredibly wrong and ridiculous. Think about it if we started at 7am we would have a bundled up sleep schedule and we wouldn’t be able to get ready in time for school (which means we wouldn’t preform good enough in school).

Also it won’t just be us having a bad day, it would also be the teachers because they will be in for an extra 5 hours on top of the 7am to 5pm rule – which is a complete madness. Do you think they will enjoy it?

As well as the 7am problems, ending at 5pm is even worse for reasons like: being late for your dinner, being later for a club outside of school and not being able to spend that long with your family and that’s not it I can name many more reasons why ending at 5pm is a very bad idea for schools. Thank you for hopefully reading this and please leave the time tables the same.

From M.Rashford

Dear Governors,
I was not happy when my mother told me that I was going to be in school at that time as my sleep schedule is incompatible. My work ethic won’t be as good as it should be my family and quality time will not be available. I won’t be able to do the stuff that I want to do like going to see my friends or going on my gaming pc. I will be hungry and I could miss my eating schedule with my family.
Please look at this letter.
