Welcome to 5/6K's webpage - over the year we will post regular updates on here about all the fantastic learning we have done. The theme for the Autumn term is Ancient Greece - Faster, Higher, Stronger. Our work will include Greek Myths, poetry, sculpture, map work, human life-cycles and computer programming. Take a look at the Autumn term curriculum cloud for more details.
PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon with Miss Starkie. PE is an important part of the school curriculum and all children are expected to take part. Everyone will need to have their full PE kit in school to make sure that they don't miss out on any of the fun.
Homework is sent home at the end of the week and is due back on the following Wednesday; homework will be linked to our work in class and will alternate between English, Maths & Topic work. We will also be using our new online tools - MyMaths and Spag.com. Spellings will also sent home each week and there will be a spelling test every Friday.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to me at the beginning of the school day and remember to keep checking our website for all the latest information and photographs.
We were joined in school last week by the Reverend Michael Prints from St Leonard's Church. He came in to talk to the children about the Church and where people can find guidance in their lives. He proved to be a very interesting guest and the children did a fantastic job acting as interviewers, camera operators and journalists.
Look at our fantastic Greek Vase designs. We spent some time studying vases from Ancient Greece. We looked at the pictures, colours and patterns they used and then tried to create our own unique designs.
Thank you to the Padiham Rotary Club who came in to school this week to give out dictionaries to all of our Year 6 pupils. I'm sure that they will come in very handy when we write our Greek Myths next week!
Well done to Alicia, Lillie, Bret, Lewis, Dalton, Harry and Josh who successfully completed their Bikeability course this week.
National Fitness Day
To celebrate National Fitness Day we all took part in an exhausting circuit training session with Paige from Burnley Football Club. The session included star jumps, press ups, lunges, planks and much more - needless to say we were all exhausted by the end!
Roald Dahl Day
It's that time of year again when our school is flooded by a sea of yellow clothing, Oompa Lumpas, Matildas and BFGs. We love celebrating the life and books of Roald Dahl. 5/6K spent the day reading and enjoying his stories, creating art work based on the twits and trying to draw like Quentin Blake. We also managed to raise over £200 for the fantastic Roald Dahl Children's Charity - Well done everyone!
Reading is the key to everything! As Dr Seuss said, 'The more that you read, the more that you'll know - the more that you know, the more places you'll go!' We have a cosy reading corner in class full of exciting things to read including books, graphic novels, magazines, encyclopaedias, newspapers and much more. We also get to visit our wonderful library, choose from our selection of new reading books and enjoy our class novel together. We are currently enjoying, 'The Edge Chronicles: Beyond the Deepwoods'
