Y6 Topic information - Summer 1

Next term our topic question is Skellig: is it a bird or mythical creature?

Please see the attached topic overview with key dates and information on what will be covered in class. Also see the attached home learning grid- please use this if your child is self isolating or for extra homework which can be completed. Finally I have included some of the workbooks that support our maths learning next term.

Please remember to post any additional work completed on the Seesaw app.

Year 4's EGGceptional Creations!

Year 4's Egg Creations for the Easter Competition were just "EGGceptional"!  We were so impressed with their entries it was EGGstremely difficult to choose the winners!  Well done to everyone for their time and effort.  Mrs Blomeley

Egg-cellent Easter egg entries

Well done to everyone in Year 6 who joined in our Easter egg competition. 

I love how creative all of your ideas are.

Well done to our lucky winners- it was avery tough decision to choose winners!!

Times Table of the Week!

It's back!  By popular demand we are re-starting Times Table of the Week!  Every Monday we will choose two new times table facts (one for Key Stage 1 and one for Key Stage 2).  These facts will be displayed in every classroom and in key areas around the school.  Teachers and other staff will ask children about the initial fact, as well as all the other facts they can derive from it.  For example, if 2 x 19 = 18, what is 18 divided by 2?  We hope that parents can get involved too!  Thank you for your support!  Mrs Blomeley

Easter Week- a time for reflection

Last week, children and staff at Broadbent Fold took time to reflect on it being a year since the start of Covid and the first lockdown.

Easter for many is the most important time of year, a time to reflect on the Easter story and importance of hope.

Have a look at the muddychurch website, attached are some examples, the social media/website has a range of enjoyable activities to make children and adults reflect and think. Share your activities on Seesaw for class teachers to see.

World hunger presentations

To finish our topic about developing countries Year 6 have been researching ways to help reduce global hunger. The UN have 17 sustainable goals which they want to reach by 2030. Goal number 2 is to stop global hunger. The children produced posters which they presented to the class with ideas for how to help reduce world hunger.

Y6 Stars of the week 26-3-21

Well done to our Y6 star's of the week Maisie, Isabel and Poppy M. 

Maisie and Isabel worked together really well to research and then present information about how to reduce world hunger as part of our topic about developing countries.

Poppy has been learning her 3 X table and has already made great improvements.

Sam has been given the Headteachers Award for great biography writing about Sam Beaver King who was part of the Windrush generation.


Hockey in Y6

Year 6 have enjoyed working with our Sports Coach Aidan over the last few weeks practising their hockey skills.

I am really impressed with their posture, balance and co-ordination. 

Mathematics outdoors

Year 6 investigated if shapes could have the same area but different perimeters outside this week.

Great outdoor learning!
