Welcome to 6TR,
The first half term passed in a blur, everything was new both to myself and the children being in Year 6. We have settled into our routine now and are looking forward to this next half term.
In September Year 6 were lucky enough to attend the first ever World's largest hair Education Day in Westminster. The day gained a World Record and we were part of it!!! Everyone enjoyed themselves and met many exciting people including a former Miss USA who as well as giving us a message that we should be proud of who we are and we are all individuals, was very funny.
On 27th September was National Fitness Day and we tried to combine doing some exercise with learning French by singing and acting out Head, Shoulders , Knees and Toes in French. We had a girls v boys sing off and I think that it was such a close competition we called it a tie!
Thursday 28th September was National Poetry Day and we celebrated this by listening to a Poem written by Roald Dahl and then creating our own Philosophical Poems connected to RE. We used questions to do this such as " Who put salt in the Sea?", Where do colours come from?", "Will the Earth cease to exist and who will be the last person living?"
We spent the night on HMS Belfast, a night with such a bright moon- London looked very beautiful. We had lots of fun and learnt lots , making our own signalling flags and lots more.
Year 6 took a local trip to Dagenham Park Church of England School and while there were treated to some drama and music from pupils, some of whom came to Henry Green. The children then took part in workshops including an exciting science one learning about chemicals and what happens when they react with other things.
We have had Marvelous Maths and Family Friday sessions but unfortunately have not seen many of our parents. We would love you to come to the next ones if you can . They will be Marvelous Maths, 20th November and Family Friday on November 24th. Hope to see you then.
In the mean time , the children are having to work very hard due to this being such an important year. Please remember to help them by listening to them read at least 3 times each week and signing thier reading records. Spellings are given every week and both English and maths homework, some to be completed on the computer and some on paper to be returned in their Homework books. Working as partners we will help the children to realise their true potentials and achieve the best results they can.
Many thanks Mrs T. Ribbons
