Y6 learning Thursday 9th July

Date: 8th Jul 2020 @ 7:42pm

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have had a a chance to pop into school to collect your own copy of "The kid who came from Space."

If not, why not call in today and read along with the rest of us. It will be one of the first texts you use in High School in September. I am already half way through and am really enjoying it. It is really exciting but funny too! I think that you will love it!

Today's learning include some activities for chapter 1 and a music lesson on how and why singing can make us feel good. Or if you fancy some science there is a flim clip about Charles Darwin -find out why he was so important in our topic of Inheritance and Evolution.

Let battle commence!

Good morning everyone, 

remember to call into school for your own copy of

"The Kid who came from Space".

The children in school have started reading it already! Check out padlet for Chapter 1 if you would like to read along with them. I love trying to recognise who is reading each part. Can you recognise the different voices you hear and match them to your classmates?

Also, it was lovely to hear from Maddison this week. She has sent in her version of this week's art challenge- making a portrait out of familiar objects. She chose her grandma and food from the fridge! A fantastic piece of art- I love it! Why not have a go at Mrs McCaffer's art challenge this week- remember to send us a pic at:

Hello Ravensbury wildlife lovers,

The end of another week and it’s going to be a little cooler today. It was so hot yesterday again! I think the ducks will be happy with the rain later.

Today’s challenge is to use your ears as the sun sets tonight. Listen for the wildlife concert that is played in your back garden every evening. You could record it and email the concert to me.

Have a wonderful, sunny and safe Thursday.

Date: 25th Jun 2020 @ 7:13am

Hello everybody,

It’s Thursday already! It was so hot yesterday and it looks like it’s going to be another scorcher today so make sure you wear a hat and put your sun cream on when you’re out in the wild today.

Today’s challenge is to make an accessory out of flowers. I used to love to make daisy chains when I was a little girl. Can you make something to add to your outfit or to give to someone you love?

Have a wonderful, sunny and safe Thursday.
