Christmas Craft with our Year 6 Reading Buddies. We were reading and following instructions. Reading buddies is a program in which two or more individuals read together. For example, older students can read with younger students, and volunteers from the community can read with students of all ages. A Reading Buddies program can help model good reading. As with any skill, reading needs to be practiced on a regular basis, and with this practice as well as modeling, students can improve their skills.

Celebrating Diwali in Holly Class

 

On Wednesday 21st November Holly Class celebrated Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights.

The name originally comes from the word dipavali, meaning a row of lights. Wherever Diwali is being celebrated you will see shops, houses and public places decorated with small, earthenware, oil lamps known as diyas. They are usually placed in rows on window sills and outside buildings as decorations. It is celebrated around the world by people who follow the Hindu religion.

The Festival of Lights, as with most ancient legends, helps us to know the truth of victory of good over evil.

CHECK US OUT!!!

We are twitter famous!!

 

These photographs is part of our display of our work from the book 'Where the poppies now grow', is our English working wall, in our classroom.

We have loved exploring this book and have produced some fantastic work.

I am a true advocate of sharing good practise and love to showcase and celebrate the children's learning. I put these photos on my personal twitter page. 

To my surprise, Hilary Robinson the author of 'Where the poppies now grow' and Martin Impey the illustrator both sent me lovely comments and have retweeted our photos on their own twitter pages, generating lots of likes and positive comments!

Well done to us!!!

Where The Poppies Now Grow

The carefree childhood for Ben and his best friend Ray becomes a distant memory when they join the army to serve their country. But, in the midst of battle can their friendship survive?

WW1

 

We are reading the book 'Where the poppies now grow' by Hilary Robinson.

 

Childhood friends, Ben and Ray, find their innocent war games become real as the Great War rages around them. Set during the First World War, in simple rhyme, Where the Poppies Now Grow takes readers on a journey of friendship set against a changing landscape of innocence, of war and then finally, of peace.

Learning Log Homework - Friday 12th October 2018

Naughty Bus. By Jan and Jerry Oke.

We are using this book in our Geography and English lessons to explore UK towns. In the story, a child receives a toy bus as a present and has great fun exploring the world with his new toy which turns out to be quite a naughty bus - or is it the child who is being naughty?!! This is a very unusual picture book with a story told through close up photography and mainly narrated by the toy bus. The book cleverly recreates children's imaginative play and is great to use as a springboard for learning ideas.

English
This have term we using our core texts to support the following writing opportunities this term:
• Thank you letter.
