Please feel free to come and visit the classroom to see what the 6D team are getting up to!
HOME LEARNING:Goes out on a Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday. You can bring it in earlier if you like but the deadline is Wednesday. Please put your home learning in the correct boxes in the corridor.
HOME LEARNING CLUBS: To encourage you to complete your home learning to the best of your ability we give up our time to put on 3 clubs each week. As soon as you have brought in both your maths and literacy home learning books then you can sign up on the windows. The earlier you return your books, the more chance that you have of choosing your preferred club.
HOME READERS (coming soon!): These also go out on a Friday and are due in by the following Friday. You need to read a minimum of 30 minutes and get this recorded and signed by an adult each week. Once you have returned your home reader in the correct box, Mrs Cousins will sign them off and add a sticker to your 'Sonic Game Chart' where you will gain rewards at the end of each half term. The more you read, the more reward you will gain!
EXCITING OPPORTUNITY! AFC Bournemouth invitation.
Please see the attached letter from one of the coaches who led our Primary Stars programme. In order to select our 10 students from year 6, we have decided to use a raffle ticket idea. Each green card will equal 1 raffle ticket. The more green cards you receive over the next two weeks, the more raffle tickets you could earn for the raffle box. On Friday 31st March, we will select 10 raffle tickets ( 10 children) to receive an invitation for the details on the letter attached. Please work on your behaviour and be a role model for all.

On Wednesday 13th July , a man from the RNLI came to tell us about what lifeguards do and sea safety.We learnt how to escape currents and he also told us about the different kinds of boats that they use .One could carry 185 survivors! He told us that they can't save everyone, but that they try to.Some of us got to dress up in lifeguards clothes which had been minimised to fit us.We had to get dressed in the quickest time possible.It was great fun!!

On Friday 24th June we had a competition in 5M. After three weeks of hard work within our groups , we finally finished our wonderful Greek temples, which would hopefully withstand a 1 KG weight . All of the groups worked amazingly hard but eventually we ended up with two groups winning first place . However , as well as this activity being fun , we also learnt new skills such as using a concertina and other methods to strengthen card.It was great.
On Friday 17th June KS2 went to the field to do our sports day. We warmed up for the main event by doing lots of different activities such as:
Javelin throwing , golf chipping , tennis relay and speed bounce.
Then we were ready and pumped up to do the main event.We competed in lots of races such as egg and spoon , relay, hurdles , sack race , skipping race and much more . It was great fun for all of us.

Today we had an amazing visitor , Lucy Shuker a paralympic wheel chair tennis player.She talked to us about her accident on her motorbike and how at first she felt that she couldn't do anything.Then she told us how she got inspired and knew that anything is possible.In her doubles tournament at the London 2012 paralympics she won bronze medal and we were able to hold it! She also showed us her tennis wheelchair.It was such an inspiring day!

In P.E we have been creating dances linked to the Greek myth Perseus and Medusa.
On Thursday 19th May year 5 went on a trip to the Lighthouse in Poole to watch the BSO perform live. There were about 15 other schools who went as well as us.They performed at least 6 songs.For one song called War and Peace we learnt different body percussion and different actions to perform along side it.We learnt the words to a song called The Four Elements and some actions too. The very last song that they played was The Fire Bird.It was amazing.

On Wednesday 27th April year 5 invited the parents for our Greek event. We all performed different Greek plays and came in with our costumes.The parents sure did enjoy our acting, it made them laugh.We made the props, the costumes and the backgrounds by ourselves with no help from the adults.Afterwards we welcomed them into our classes to eat our home made , delicious , Greek Easter butter biscuits and served some grape juice as a special treat.It was a lot of fun .
In P.E we have been creating clear shapes on the apparatus with a partner.
On Monday 1st February we all arrived in our amazing Greek outfits.We spent the whole morning in the hall with two great actors who taught us all about life in Ancient Greece.We did lots of activities including drama and freeze frame.All of us tried to bring in Greek lunches with food like cucumber, olives and feta cheese. In the afternoon we drew Greek vases with pictures that showed how the Greeks lived.They looked great and Greek day was brilliant too.

We created some amazing dioramas for our book, 'Dinosaurs And All That Rubbish'!
As part of the computing curriculum we visited Barclay's Bank teaching lab. We saw how information could be programmed in to a machine enabling it to cut out and etch a shape with a laser. We also learnt how to use a code bug programme.
We chose to compete in a scrap heap challenge. This linked in with our book, 'Dinosaurs And All That Rubbish'!
As part of book week , we wrote a sequel to ,'Pirates Love Underpants', we then performed our play to our prayer buddies in year 2.
