Good morning everyone - Happy Friday!

A message from Mr Horsley:

I was really impressed once again with the amazing work that has been submitted over the past few days. I am really looking forward to our PE lessons next year already after looking at the wonderful responses to Health and Fitness Week. I saw some interesting 'Horizontal Rock Climbing' pictures yesterday - I hope you all enjoyed it!

Today's task - 

What is your favourite book?  Do you have a book that you could recommend to another one of your friends in our new class?

Your task is to draw a picture of the cover of your favourite book and give it a bit of colour. Leave a short review to let me know why you enjoyed it so much. Have a look at this example:

“This is my favourite book and as a child, my Dad would read this to me, the words in it are a little tricky! I loved the story and plots about adventures and battles and beasts and heroes! I particularly love the way JRR Tolkien describes the landscapes and setting!”

Task 2:

I would also like you to think about 5 things that you are most looking forward to next year. You can record this however you like: pictures, a poster or just written notes. I think next year will be a fantastic one and I hope that you are looking forward to it as much as I am.

 

Health and Fitness Week:

Health and Fitness week is coming to an end so let's put in extra effort before the weekend. A survey will be sent out today for you to submit your final scores for the Home Olympics. Make sure you read the Health and Fitness blog post I will post later to see what challenges I have set you for the day.

 

Have a great day and weekend everyone.

Todays Tasks: 

Activity 1:

For the task today, I would like you all to, Using an outline of a face, draw the aspects of Year 6 that you are looking forward to e.g. clubs, lessons, trips etc.

I have attached to this blog a document of two head outlines which you can print or copy :)

Good Morning Eagles! 

 

Todays Tasks: 

Today's tasks focus on wellbeing, our Growth Mindset and goals for the future. 

Task 1

Throughout lockdown, you have all shown how motivated and determined you are to continue with your work, showing a consistent Growth Mindset. Today, I would like you to create a poster all about Growth Mindset. Think about how you can have a  growth mindset and what you can say to motivate yourself. Also, think about the flipside of this and what would be negative things that could be said in the same situation. Here is an example:

Task 2: 

  1. Think about your goals for next year – what would you like to achieve? Split a piece of paper into two columns and label them ‘goals’ and ‘actions’. Think about what your goals and what actions you will need to make to achieve them.

Here is an example:

Good morning future Eagles!

Well done to all of you who posted your 'All about me' posters yesterday. I knew quite a bit already about most of you, but there was definitely some new information and a few surprises in there!

Today's task: 

We are in the Eagles class. What can you find out about Eagles? Search on the Internet or look in a book and find out what you can about this wonderful bird. Then present your findings. You could draw a picture of an Eagle, write a paragraph or some sentences about them, brainstorm facts or make a fact file.

One interesting fact about Eagles is that there are over 60 different species of eagle. 

Remember to keep any work you complete, all of our work on Eagles will go on the front door of our classroom :)

Welcome class of 2021!

I'm very excited to welcome you to your new blog and your new class! 

 

Over the next two weeks, I will be setting you some taks to complete at home so I can learn lots more about you! Anything that you complete at home, please blog it - I would love to read and see them all. I would love for you to bring them in in September so that I can display them in class so make sure to keep them safe :)

Getting to know each other:

This week, I will be ringing home to say Hi! This will be a great chance for you to ask any questions which you may have. Next week, I wll also meet with you all over Zoom. If you haven't had an email with a date and time, please mention this when I call. 

 

Today's Task:

Today I would like you to create a poster all about you! You could put a picture in the middle and create sections about your family, your hobbies, your favourite things and anything else that you would like to share.

Here are some examples to help you out! 

Take a picture and blog your poster when you have finished. Remember, we need to keep safe online so we don’t want any personal details on the blog.

Here is a little bit about me: 

- I support Arsenal in football. 

- I used to play rugby union - until my hip didn't want to any more.

- My son has the same name as me - he's also called 'Mr Simpson'. 

- My favourite lesson to teach is .... well I think you should know by now. 

 

Health and Fitness Week:

This week is also Health and Fitness Week. Everyday we will set a separate task on the blog for you to complete at home. 

Make sure to have a look at the ideas that Mr Horsley has set on the Main School Blog Page and blog any activities that you have done. 

Have a great day!

Mr Simpson

Bubble 7a - Raft Building

Date: 25th Jun 2020 @ 1:52pm

If we can’t go to Robinwood, let’s bring them to us! (Sort of!)

Over the past two days in Bubble 7, we have been working hard to create our own rafts. We used a range of materials to ensure that our raft would float on water and we could save our little toy. 

Well done to Amy, Lucy and Alfie who successfully saved their toy!

 

Bubble 7a - I have a Dream!

Date: 25th Jun 2020 @ 10:14am

Over the past 2 weeks Bubble 7 have been working hard to write their own ‘I have a dream speech’ inspired by Martin Luther King. We discussed recent world events and the future world we would like to live in. I am so proud of the work created!

 

Here are our speeches attached below, make sure you have a read!
