This year the Lions will be working with Miss Johnston, Mrs Sieczkowski, Mrs Ward and Mrs Naeem.
The Lions' library day will be every other Monday and it is important children make the most of this opportunity and read a range of different texts and genres.
The Lions will be given a piece of maths and English homework each week. They may also be given topic, RE and science homework to complete. Every week they will receive 10 spellings to learn and are expected to get three signatures in their home reading book. It also very important that the Lions know all the times tables and can recall them easily.
Also this half term we will be looking at the evolution and inheritance in Science; the ancient Greeks in History and achieving our goals in PSHE. Our value this half term is Wisdom. This year we will be doing PE on Mondays and we will be doing gymnastics- please make sure your child has their PE kit in school every day.
Year 6 'Drop In'
This half term we are starting our SATs Booster Classes. These take place after school on Monday and Tuesday, 3:15pm-4:00pm. These sessions are a great opportunity for children to ask questions about areas of maths and grammar they are unsure of and also practice existing skills. We would encourage as many children as possible to make the most out of these sessions.
We have had a busy Autumn 2. The children have discovered how our bodies work and what things can harm our bodies. They have investigated where all our things come from and were shocked to find out that much of the fruit we enjoy travels thousands of air miles! They have also worked hard on their class collective worship and the Christmas Performance. To finish off a busy half term, we have attempted finger knitting and lots of children accomplished their very own scarf.
This week we have been exploring the book 'The Arrival' and the Lions have created their very own picture book.
We have had great fun designing our own characters and settings. To inspire us we took a trip to Blackburn Library to look for other fantastic characters and settings different authors had created.
We finished the week with a book character fancy dress!
Help your children win Lion Tokens!
This year we will be giving out Lion tokens. These tokens will be awarded to any children who have demonstrated an excellent example to others. Three tokens will be given out each day. Children can receive a maximum of one a day. For the token to become of value, the children must have it signed on the back by their parent/guardian to ensure that they are sharing the good news with you when they have done something well at school. Once they have been signed, children must bring them back to school to be counted at the end of the half term. At the end of the half term, the top three children, with the most tokens, will receive some fantastic prizes. Please help your child to gain as many tokens as possible and don’t forget to sign them and bring them back.
The Lions' Luscious Library!
This half term the class library has opened for business. Children are encouraged to check out books from the library to widen their reading. The library is self check out and children can check one book out at anytime and for any length. Our class librarians (to be announced soon) will check the books back in for the children and then they can take out another. There are a wide range of genres and we have been lucky enough to receive a selection of new books.
