Mrs Newbery's Class - 6N 

 

Monday 11th May 2020 - SATs Week

"Ode to 6N"

As SATs week arrives, it's not quite the same,

The tests that were printed this year never came,

The displays all still up; window of words and spelling rules,

But Year 6 is very different, right now in the schools.

 

For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,

For other, a sigh of pure disbelief,

That you worked really hard in advance of this week,

Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.

 

Place value, fractions, times table drills,

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,

Past present, progressive... and all SPAG terms,

Across the subjects of many you've learned.

 

Fear not though, the SATs will not happen this term,

Remember tests don't measure everything you learn,

Primary subjects are varied; you've always tried your best,

And many of those skills you've gained can't be defined by a test.

 

So, here at LBJS, you've made us so proud,

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud...

"Year 6 you amaze us; you have come incredibly far...

And we don't need a test to see how amazing you are!"

 

Monday 23rd March 2020

Good morning 6N...Where ever you are, I hope you are keeping yourselves safe and busy.  It's very quiet here without you and I'm missing you all already!

I hope that you are enjoying your 'Learning Packs' and the on-line resources on this website for SATs Revision (they are still an excellent resource for you to use).

Over the next few days, when things here have calmed down a little, I will put some lessons on here for you, so keep checking in - I will get around to it - meanwhile your packs should keep you going.

Look out for emails from Mr Cox with new web links - there's even a sentence stacking one from Jane Considine - I know how much you love to sentence stack.

Keep in touch, you can email or write and hopefully this will all be over soon.

Stay safe, healthy and happy!

Best wishes to you and your families.

Mrs Newbery and Mrs Warren

 

 

Spring 2020

Welcome back and Happy New Year! 
Let's see what exciting things we have in store this term...

Wow...another term and another super stunning start to our new topic...
Stars and Stripes

This term we will be learning all about the good old US of A

The day began with The Great American Quiz.  In our groups, we answered questions in various rounds, such as general knowledge, music, film, logos, people … Team Texas won, but only just!  The tiebreaker was this...
"From when the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776 to today, how many presidents have there been?"

Tough question … But ask Year 6, now we know!

 

Who's for baking apple pie? Now that we know why people say "As American as apple pie..."

I think Angus was hoping for some crumbs...unlucky Angus!

Yum … Delicious apple pie enjoyed by all … certainly a tasty stunning start this term... and a huge thanks to Mrs Warren for all the preparation!

Landmark Quiz...

Using the power of our knowledge (and a little help from Google) we then raced to identify the famous London landmarks from the word clues:

Can you tell?
Which landmark is a memorial to the Great Fire of London?
or
Which London landmark has a thatched roof?

Just ask one of us if you're unsure!

We can't wait to fill this space with our new found knowledge of LONDON

Keep watching!!!

A Stunning Start

As we entered the dark and eerie classroom, blue and white twinkling lights glistened out from the corner of the room.  Sitting amongst the lights was a large, shiny silver box; filled with small packages wrapped in silver foil. A strange, yet calming tune filled our ears as sat and wondered what could all this possibly mean...

We opened the clues, one by one... until...

We got it ..our new topic is...

Space, Stars

and Aliens

Watch this 'space' for all the exciting things to come this term...

What could be in the silver box?

Astronaut food, strange bottle tops, wonky arrows, mechanic beings, bizarre landscapes, bright stars...

We discussed the clues and recorded our ideas...

Then our hidden displays were revealed...

We've been very busy Space Journalists.... Read all about it!
