The Summer term is certainly a memorable one for Y6!
You have done your SATs and bikeability course! You have done some really admirable writing and applied yourself well in our science topic about evolution.
Your final half term at Tirlebrook will be filled with many more enjoyable activities from the Isle of Wight, to the KS2 production, to Sports Day, to many leavers activities/events too!
Have a relaxing break and come back ready to go!
There is more about e-safety for families on our school's website: click here.
An interesting lesson on human evolution today - we learned about the differences between
Well done for all that you have achieved this week - bikeability will have been a real highlight for many of you. But remember, we have also done a lot of work for our topic on evolution; attempted a few different writing styles in independent sessions; played tennis; experimented with fidget spinners; accomplished many miles on Old Spot's run.
Have a lovely weekend; relax and be ready for the last week before half term (Green Week)!
We did a bit of 'data gathering' with fidget spinners this morning...
They spun and spun!
We worked out the average time a spinner spun for; then we tried to put this data in a bar chart...unfortunately time got the better of us and we didn't quite finish, but we might find the time next week to have another go at the bar charts.
This summer Y6 will be taking the lead roles in a production of Robin Hood.
It was great to see such enthusiasm and dynamism from the children as they tried playing out different roles (from our play) to show off their acting skills.
Mrs. Perry joined me and was very impressed by the efforts too.
We will let you know your roles as soon as possible and give you lines to learn over half term.
It was our final Tewkesbury School Library visit today; the children presented work on their favourite author. (I learnt some new things about some authors too!).
Many thanks must go to the great library team, especially to Mrs. Baird and Mrs. Pinfield, who have been brilliant at setting activities and helping us understand their school's system.
In order to meet the Y6 writing standard we are doing some independent writing at the moment... today we wrote about an information text about a fictional lizard...there were some very pleasing results.
Some good skills on display today...we are going to work on the serve technique a little more next time.
This morning we looked at adaptation and inheritance...the children seemed to take a lot from the science focus introduction to the topic.
Firstly we had a quick look at adaptation by thinking about a birds beak.
We really focussed in on inheritance today though, and used Mr and Mrs. Potato Head to look at all the combinations for its potential offspring, based on the characteristics of its parent's.
What did you find most interesting?
We have five words for the prompt this week. They must ALL be in your 100 words but you can change the order. The words are:
WIDE ORANGE CROCODILE WITHIN COLLAPSED
Things to think about:
Make sure all entries are in by Friday.
What a week Elder Class - well done!
How do you feel?
Those tests are all over now; well done for all your efforts and maturity - now we can look forward to a fun and busy few weeks in Elder Class.
Do something to celebrate and relax! - Maybe enjoy a bar model party!
