P6 Update

A super week in P6 comes to a close once again.

The week started off on a very positive note with the news that the previous Friday’s fund raising efforts had really paid off!  The final total of money raised to help support those caught up in the Australian bush fires came to the amazing total of £500!  A great big thank you goes out to everyone who contributed and helped make the day such a success. A special well done also goes out to Luke, McKenzie, Cameron and Josh from the class who came up with the idea and lead the project.

During the week, the class have participated in auditions for roles in our performance of Joseph.  There were so many positive and keen pupils who had put themselves forward for the roles. Making a decision was a very, very hard thing to do. The cast list was shared with pupils from both classes this afternoon, and whilst there were a few tears of disappointment, we know that everyone will come back on Monday keen to get started once again.

Now that everyone has their role, can we please put out a plea to parents, who may be starting to do a touch of early spring-cleaning, for any material that they might be throwing out? Plain and striped material, such as bed sheets or curtains can be converted into fantastic costumes. If you do have anything that you think may be helpful, please send it in next week. Thank you in advance.

In Literacy, we have used the context of Joseph to work on our writing skills by continuing to develop and enhance our script writing skills.  I think that the children were surprised just how much thought and problem-solving has to go into developing a script along with all of the stage instructions that are required too.

In Digital Literacy, we are starting to use our word-processing skills to layout a script in the correct format. The class are also nearing the end of their coding course and are now very clearly able to demonstrate clearer and more logical thinking skills. It is also lovely to see pupils supporting each other so much when they get stuck.

We had two visits from the NSPCC this week. On Tuesday, we had an upper-school assembly where they shared with the children how they can keep themselves safe and share their worries. This visit was followed up on Wednesday by a more detailed workshop in class. Lots of fantastic discussions were had.

Well done to Freya and Sofia who presented a Road Safety message at both the upper and infant assemblies today. They worked very hard to make a presentation about a very important message.

And finally, the class won ‘Class of the Week’ again! The class enjoyed their last reward of an extra break on Tuesday and it looks like we will be doing it all over again next week too!  Well done P6!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Mr. Morgan
