Grammar homework due for Friday 19th January

This week, we will be focusing on the subject and object within a sentence. For SATS, the children will need to be able to identify the subject and object in a sentence and will also be asked to change one or the other for a word that might also work in the sentence. The children have a worksheet explaining this and this needs to be completed and brought in for the lesson on Friday 19th January.

Grammar Homework- due on 12th January 2018

Welcome back! We hope that you have all had a fantastic holiday and are relaxed and refreshed. From this term onward, we will be changing the way that we approach grammar homework. The children will no longer be required to post on the blog but will have a paper copy of the homework that they will bring home with them. They will need to bring this paper to the lesson which will take place on Friday afternoons for all campuses.

This week, we are revising passive and active sentences. This picture may help you to understand how passive sentences are formed.

Snow cinquain

Today we have been inspired by the weather to create our own snow poems.  We have used a poetry style called cinquain.  A cinquain is a poem that has 5 lines that do not rhyme, arranged in a sequence of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 2 syllables. It is similar to Japanese haiku poems but each line has a specific format.

We will post our poems on the blog once they are finished.

Snowy days in year 6

We have been very busy today in year 6. We have been investigating nets of cubes in maths as well as directional orientation. We combined this with Christmas and made cuboid decorations for our tree. At breaktime, those of us with wellingtons and warm coats went out onto our untouched field to make snowmen and giant snowballs. Some of us have written snow poetry whilst others have been cooking. Here is a snapshot of some of what we have been up to:
