Year 6 - Miss Hunter
Important things to remember:
- You can come into school any time from 8.40 to 9.00 am. Remember not to crowd outside the classroom door, just come straight in.
Our P.E. Day is a Friday (afternoon). It is dance so you need indoor P.E kit. Remember to remove earrings and have a bobble for long hair.
- Please remember to bring a water bottle to school with you each day, especially when the weather gets warmer.
- We will go to the library on a Tuesday afternoon so remember to return your book.
- If you have a music lesson, you will need your instrument on a Tuesday or a Friday.
The Dot - Make a mark and see where it takes you.
Now that everyone has returned to school after quite a long time away, we wanted to welcome the children back with a lovely whole school project. We read a fantastic picture book called The Dot by Peter Reynolds. The story is about a young girl called Vashti who is very upset and angry because she feels like she can't draw. Her teacher asks her to just make a mark on a page. Once she does this, and after the teacher gives her some encouragement, Vashti realises she can do an awful lot with just one dot. The children used this to inspire their writing. They wrote a prequel, describing what they think may have happened in the art class that day. The children also looked at pointilism art work and created their own versions which they then used to inspire a poem. I think you will agree that all of the work the children created looks wonderful!
World Book Day 2021
We couldn't have a World Book Day without all of the boys and girls in school so we celebrated a little bit later this year. We also changed the way that we celebrate World Book Day this year. Instead of children coming to school dressed as their favourite book characters, we gave all of the children a plain white t-shirt. Children spent the morning talking about their favourite books and characters, then designed and made their own t-shirts to wear. It was lovely to see all of the children in the school wearing their own designs, and the children had an absolutely fantastic day!
