Welcome to Year 6!
The staff in year 6 are as follows:
Mrs Coates - Class teacher
Mrs Harrison - Class Teaching Assistant
Mrs Silcock (1:1 Teaching Assistant)
FORGIVENESS - DON'T RUB IT IN, RUB IT OUT!
This is the theme for this half-term and we will be covering a number of Bible stories on this in collective worship. It is, of course, the perfect theme for Easter, and so Year 6 will be focusing on this as they put together the service for church and create banners.
Year 6 helpers will help with the lunchtime sessions for KS2 children at our Book Fair from Tuesday 19th March to Friday 22nd March. We will be open after school in the Link Corridor from Monday 18th March for the week. Books purchased help to provide books for school; thank you in advance for your generosity, it is much appreciated.
Children from Year 2 to Year 6 will be taking part in the annual Bible Reading event run by Crosby and District Bible Society in school on Monday 25th and Tuesday 16th March.
We have been looking at the Jewish celebration of Passover and are going to be holding our own in class after half-term. We know about the symbolism of the festival and will be trying out the special food.
This is now well underway each Tuesday and Thursday after school until 4.15p.m. Well done to all who are taking part as thinking hard after a full day of lessons can be tricky! The sessions will finish the week before the SATs.
We really enjoyed our trip to the Liverpool Empire Theatre to see "Madagascar the Musical". We all joined in with "I like to move it, move it" at the end of the show.
Year 6 pupils are allowed to bring mobile phones into school if they are travelling without parents/guardians to and from school. There is a permission letter to be filled in and the phone must be switched off an left in a designated place in the Year 6 classroom.
Our Piggy Bank remains open each Friday and we are saving up £1 each week to pay for the theatre trip and a post-SATs meal which will be on the Friday of the test week.
We will soon be planning our re-telling of the first Easter for the school on Wednesday 3rd April. It is an afternoon we all look forward to as part of our drama and R.E. work in school. As is the tradition, Year 6 will be making banners to present to St.Luke's Church at our Easter service on Friday 5th March. We enjoy this activity very much and we know that they are well received by church.
FUN IN ART
We have been making "salty" pictures based on Japanese artist Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kanagawa" print, a version of which is
used on the front cover of the book we are reading, "Kensuke's Kingdom" by Michael Morpurgo. Using clay, we will be making patterned tiles inspired by the work of pottery company Troika.
Thanks to Rev. Amanda for coming in each week to help with our book clubs. The two current groups are reading the classic, "Goodnight Mr.Tom" and "Pax" a new story about a boy and a fox.
Soon we will be ending our visits to Sandalwood for this year but we hope to invite our friends there along to afternoon tea in school in the summer and to see our production in July. It has been great fun visiting them for a chat and taking them samples of our baking and we hope that our friendship will continue to grow from strength to strength.
DONATION TO SEFTON HELPING HANDS
We were pleased to give a cheque for £185 from collections made at our Christmas presentations in church to Sefton Helping Hands.They were delighted with our contribution and helped us out in collective worship by giving some "Be Attitude" badges to children from each class who had stood out in wanting to put others' first this half-term. The other £185 from our Christmas collection went to the Toybox Charity to sponsor a child in a home for street children in South America.
