J Francis: January 2017
We have had another busy week in Year 6 and this week our news is brought to you by Melissa and Jasmine! From now on, two children from the class will be chosen each week to be 'roving reporters'; they will gather the news and views and take photographs for this web page — a great opportunity that I know they will take on with gusto....
Year 6 have had an eventful and exciting week!
On Tuesday, in PE with Mr Ellis, we developed our ball skills and tried out a 'friendly' match, which everyone enjoyed.
On Thursday, we had a wonderful time at The New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, where we watched an amazing performance of The Snow Queen. The actors were able to multi-task (sing, dance, play different parts and deliver their lines) and the costumes were out of this world! We used the story in our literacy lesson to stimulate our imaginations and create a piece of descriptive writing about Bluewater Lake.
On Friday, afternoon we had fun tie-dyeing. We used string to create white circles in cotton cloth. After making up the dye, we immersed the cloth in it. We hope to have 'new' blue and green material, which we will use for a patchwork quilt that we are starting next week!
Thank you Melissa and Jasmine.
A Spring Term Newsletter will be coming home on Monday with lots more information about our plans for the next few weeks.
Finally, I apologise that the SPaG homework did not go out on Friday — an oversight — I will hand it out on Monday and provide time in class for those who will not get chance to complete it before Wednesday when we will mark it together.
Have a good weekend!
