Absence from School:

IMPORTANT - If you are off school due to illness or isolation, then our school learning will be available on Google Classroom. However, we have noticed that a few parents are not part of this system, so will be unable to access the work at the moment. To join Google Classroom, go to the webpage (www.classroom.google.com) and enter our Year 6 password w45gq7q.

 If you used this system during Year 5 lockdown, then you are already on the system smiley

 Week 5

We have now finished our Literacy whole class book by Neil Gaiman - 'Wolves in the Walls'. This was a fascinating and dark 'twisted tale' which made us think about our own scary dreams and nightmares. 

We finished the topic by writing our own nightmare story, which I am still getting scared of as I read them all in detail! Well done Year 6.

This week's assembly theme was 'connectedness' and we reflected on the idea that we are 'better together' and that teamwork is vital to our success in school and in wider society. We looked at the work of a famous graffiti artist - Keith Haring - who often worked with children to produce pieces of art in a collaborative and connective way. This amazing success now adorns the entrance hall of school, so check it out next time you are here.

 

 

Week 2 

This week our class assembly theme was HOPE, in which we were discussing why having hope in times of sadness or worry is really positive and helpful.
We thought about images that could symbolise 'hope' for us and then enjoyed making a whole class collage with our images.
We also made bird feeders this week, which were messy and smelly - but worth it!! They are adorable and I'm sure will encourage lots of birds into our playground over the winter months.
 
Finally, this week I introduced my weekly 'TOP BANANA' competition to the children.
Every week I choose a member of our Year 6 team who has stood out to me throughout the week for being amazing!
Our first TOP BANANA is a very well deserved,................BRANDON!!!
 

 

Week 1

It was so great to see everyone back to school this week - I have missed seeing everyone so much over the last few months.

This week we have all being getting used to the new rules and procedures for school life here in Buglawton. We are enjoying time in our Year 6 bubble, although it is hard to remember to keep our distance from our other friends throughout the school.

On Friday all the Year 6 children recieved a new reading book to enjoy in school and at home. It is important to remember that when the book is finished, we put it into 'quarantine' for a few days before it goes back into our class library.

 

After a very strange end to our school year, I'm very much looking forward to the next academic year and getting to know the new Year 6 children and their families. Unfortunately, we have not been able to provide our usual transition activities and meetings but I hope that the information on this page will be useful in order to feel confident about starting back at Buglawton in Year 6 .. You will find links to useful homework information, parent presentations and topic overviews.

When we return to school, I will also share what activities we have been enjoying together as a class and some of our key whole school events.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any external school trips in the Autumn term, but that certainly won't stop us providing exciting and engaging topics to keep us all inspired and enthusiastic about learning.

Our topics for the year will include 'Lest We Forget' - a historical learning experience covering World Wars 1 and 2, 'The World's Your Oyster' - learning more about the geography, food and cultures of our world and 'Music, Movies and Fashion' - a new topic looking at the exciting history of the film, music and fashion worlds....

When we arrive back in September, the whole school will embark on a specially designed Writing topic based on the Oliver Jeffer's book 'HERE WE ARE'.

This will be a fantastic chance to begin our new school year as a full Buglawton Team - albeit in our 'bubbles'. We will have the chance to explore some of the feelings and emotions that time away from school and what has been happening in our world may have left us with.
