In response to the hope and kindness activities completed by year 6 pupils, and then distributed to our local care homes, Barrington Lodge have replied with much appreciation! They thanked us for the work and also included work from the residents for us to look at. How lovely is that! What an act of kindness!
This week, Y6 children have been busy and have enjoyed working on numerous activities linked to Hope. The children carefully coloured in hearts, creating different patterns, wrote a piece of creative writing linked to Hope and they created their own pictures that represented what Hope means to them. One child, drew a tree of Hope and wrote a recipe of Hope and the idea was that the tree sprinkled the recipe of Hope down on people that were near and touched the tree. We have sent some of our amazing work to our local care homes for the residents to enjoy and to make them smile!
Y6 have been learning about notation this week and looking at a stave by playing some practical games. Through different activities this week, we have found out that where notes on a stave sit show which note that equals . We have been creating our own mnemonic phrases to remember note names and had fun being very creative with this. To really test our knowledge, we used giant staves to spell out different words and had to stand correctly on the stave to represent the notes. We have also investigated rhythms and beats and played a game of bingo.
As part of Maths Week England, Y3 demonstrated reasoning and problem solving skills through the logic games they played. They worked well as part of a team to solve a range of problems.
On Friday, 6C watched a video about DIWALI which is the five-day Hindu Festival of Lights and the children took notes. As a class, we talked about respect and celebrating differences.
The whole school enjoyed Maths Week England last week (WB 09.11.20) to celebrate Maths in a variety of different ways. Each class completed Maths Mission tasks using their Maths skills, lots of which showed us how valuable Maths is to everyday life. Some wonderful examples include work which focused on the children creating posters about themselves using number facts, playing a game focusing on factors of a number and completing a jigsaw puzzle using numbers in a different language. Resilience, determination and focus were needed throughout the week. It has been great to see all children working on puzzles and questions with such positive attitudes.
All we had to do was wear odd socks! It was a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week! It was held on Monday 16th November, the first day of Anti-Bullying Week. Some great socks were worn to support this, well done 6H.
Feeding Families is a local charity that we, CHJS, support. This promotes the wellbeing and mental health for those who give and receive aid. Hampers are provided to families in our community. Families and staff are donating food items in order for these hampers to be distributed. Please support us in order to support Feeding Families. All donations need to be in school by 30th November.
Today, we learned about people who died in the wars. We found out that brothers from the same family were stopped from serving together. Why poppies? They were the first flower to grow in the fields after WWI ended so this is the flower to represent all those who died. Lest we forget. Each one of us designed a medal to show bravery.
