After reading The Island this week in English, the children completed a conscience alley. A child walked down the alley and the other children on either side had to give reasons for and against letting the man stay on the island. Once they had walked through the alley, the children then had to share their final decision after hearing lots of different opinions.
The children have all settled in really well to their new class. In writing we have started our new book – The Day War Came. We spent our first lesson reading and discussing the book before starting to think about a setting description.
This week was an emotional week for the staff and children in Year 6.
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their party and you can find pictures of this below – I tried to make it extra special for them so that they could have an amazing night. We had a brand-new set up and new decorations, along with donut walls, wall of lights and cupcakes donated by one of our lovely parents.
The assembly was absolutely AMAZING. The children smashed their performance and did everybody proud! I was super proud of how they did. We certainly have a few professional actors brewing in that mix! I’m sure all of you parents were super proud of your children too.
My final message is to say that I will miss you all very much Year 6 and I know that everybody else at Bells Farm will too. You have been such a pleasure to teach this year and we have had some real laughs and made some good memories to treasure. I know that you will all be amazing at your new secondary schools and will achieve great things. So be happy and be yourselves! You are all wonderful!!
Thank you for my lovely gifts too. I will treasure them forever and will enjoy the sweet treats very soon!
Art week has started and in Year 6 we are focusing on canal art as this follows on nicely from our history topic. The children have been focusing and working really hard on perfecting their canal style floral paintings of roses.
