Welcome to Year 6M (2021/22)
In Literacy we have been looking at the key features of play scripts. We completed storyboards about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. We then chose one part of our storyboards and turned it into a play script. We acted out our play scripts with our friends. We think that there may be some budding actors and actresses in P6M!
Some pupils from our class achieved their first Accelerated Reader target in P6. They each received a certificate and a homework pass. Look at those happy faces! Super reading everyone! Well done.
Today in school we celebrated Harvest. P6 & P7 worked together to present a special Harvest poem and we all sang It’s Harvest Time. Archdeacon West visited and spoke to us about God’s faithfulness. We were very happy to be able to be together again for assembly.
In Literacy we have been learning about persuasive writing techniques. This week a mystery box appeared in our classroom. We had to write a letter to persuade Miss Moorhead to open the box and share the treat with us. Our letters impressed Miss Moorhead and on Friday we got a letter from her to say that we had persuaded her to open the box! We found some delicious treats inside. We enjoyed some Cadbury’s hot chocolate with marshmallows and cookies!
We celebrated Space Week with lots of fun activities. The theme was Women in Space. We learnt about women who were astronauts. We also learnt about stars and constellations. We made edible constellations using spaghetti and marshmallows. The marshmallows had all disappeared by the end of the lesson!! Can you guess what happened to them?
This term our WAU topic is Space. We had a great day at Armagh Planetarium. We even impressed the staff with our knowledge of planets! We learnt a lot and enjoyed the practical activities. Have a look at the photos to see what we got up to.
In Literacy we have been learning to use speech marks correctly. Using macaroni for speech marks was a fun way to consolidate our learning.
We enjoyed our non uniform day. We all wore something yellow or gold and donated money to the Children’s Cancer Fund.
We looked at the different ways of opening an story. We then worked in pairs to write our own story openings. We had some great ideas!
After learning about quadrilaterals and their properties, we went outside on a quadrilateral hunt. We found lots of quadrilaterals and identified parallel and perpendicular lines. This was a fun Friday Maths lesson.
