I hope you all had a lovely holiday and you, and all your families are safe and well. Happy New Year as well!
This week (week beginning 4th January) will be a week of home learning. Please log on to Google Classroom where all your resources for your learning will be. Our Google Meets this week will be at 10:00am everyday. The children can join the meeting, and find out what work they have to do for the day. It is also a chance for them to see their friends which is an important part of looking after their well-being. The link will be shared on the Google Classroom stream just before 10:00am, and they just have to click on the link to join the meeting. Please make sure when they join the meeting they are dressed and ready to start the day, and that they are downstairs when the meeting takes place.
The Year 6 Home Learning Grid for this week is below.
Take care of yourselves and stay safe!
In 6G, we have been learning about the celebration of 'Thanksgiving'. We have been learning about the history of Thanksgiving, and how it is celebrated today. We have thought about what we are thankful for, and even created our own Thanksgiving poems. One thing we were thankful for was having enough food to eat. We decided that our chosen charity for Year 6 that we wanted to support was the Cardiff Food Bank. We asked other classes in the school to support us, and donate food for the food bank. We are very thankful for the support we received. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
As part of our STEM project, we learnt about Antarctica and whether it was possible to live there. The children looked at various aspects such as where Antarctica is, past expeditions (e.g. Shackleton's journey), science investigations on insulators and Art work inspired by the frozen planet. Below is a PowerPoint, which was completely written by the children of our class. They worked very hard, and showed a real enthusiasm to learn about our topic.
A huge welcome back to school! We're looking forward to having everyone back and enjoying what is going to be your last year of primary school. School is going to be a little different from March, but you have already shown how amazing, resilient and adaptable you are. Hopefully, we can make your final year an enjoyable memorable year.
