Year Six

Year 6 is taught by Miss Clements.

Year 6

Housekeeping information about Year 6:

Please label all items of uniform and school equipment, including water bottles and lunch boxes, with your child’s name.

PE: Swimming will continue this term while the weather is nice every Thursday afternoon. Our second P.E slot is Wednesday so please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times and that your child has a refillable water bottle.

Home Learning:

Please click on the link for the home-learning-grid. The children need to complete a minimum of 4 pieces of home learning to be shared in the week beginning 12th December. I have attached resources to support some of the activities and will provide the children with a pack to take home.

Spelling and Maths homework will be sent home every Tuesday and needs to be returned by the following Monday. Spelling work will involve a rule and the children will be provided with a number of strategies to learn the rule. They will not be tested in school, but the children are expected to apply the learnt spelling rules to their writing. Maths homework will be set from MyMaths and log in details will be sent home with your child.

Reading: Please encourage and listen to your child read at home. Reading is important as it broadens vocabulary, cultivates imagination and also provides information. We recommend that your child reads every day but a minimum of 3 times a week. As the children do not have reading records, I will be keeping a record of how many books they read in school and rewarding them for reading lots!

Trip: we are visiting Kidzania on Tuesday 20th September. If you are interesting in helping with this trip, please let me know.

PPA: The children will be learning P.E and French on a Thursday afternoon during my PPA time.

If possible, please ensure that your child has wellies and an art shirt in school. Thank-you.

Residential: To Follow

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.

Kind regards,

Miss Clements

Community Spirit

July 8th, 2017

BERKELEY PRIMARY loved waving off the amazing cyclists last week for #BSQ2BSQ!  It made it all so real for them after their week of sponsored cycling, where they collectively cycled 340 miles to help raise money and awareness for 3 charities close to the hearts of many in our community, Meningitis Now, CJD and Sue Ryder.

Many of the cyclists and the organisers of #BSQ2BSQ  are coming to school this Monday for a special assembly to share their success story and help our children to further understand the impact they have had on this phenomenal community event.

Thank you all for your support and participation in our part towards this event with Nightrider and On ‘ya Bike week. You have all helped to raise a huge amount for these charities and the children have loved being a part of this incredible community venture! What a wonderful town Berkeley is! These children are the future of Berkeley and they will never forget how much they’ve achieved over the last few weeks!

Well done to everyone involved! 😀

Day 4

June 26th, 2017

Today we have been on the giant swing, zip wire, abseiling and street surfing. The children have had so much fun and are now partying at the disco!!! I have only uploaded these because there are soooo many photos from today and I don’t have time to upload them but will put them on as soon as we are back. The children are all tired but happy and are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow :-)

Day 3

June 25th, 2017

20170625_150404

Today we have been kayaking, on a beach coastal walk and played archery. The children really enjoyed their choice of macaroni cheese or roast dinner for tea. They are just playing capture the flag and coming back for a room inspection! I’m sorry about the photos as some are the wrong way and there were lots more I wanted to upload but the WI-FI is ridiculously slow and keeps breaking!!

Day 2

June 24th, 2017

Today started with an early morning wake up call for breakfast. We then climbed Jacobs ladder which was far more terrifying than it looked!! All of the children gave it their all. We then had a go at a Tunnel Trail which involved crawling around underground tunnels playing games like cat and mouse.

After a delicious lunch of pasta and garlic bread, we set off for raft building. This was by far the most popular activity so far. Sonny had jumped  with 3 seconds of sitting on the raft and Harry can officially  tie every knot known to man! The children worked so well in their teams and thoroughly enjoyed pushing me in.

For dinner, we enjoyed chicken nuggets or enchiladas and lemon drizzle cake. The children are now playing ambush ( a game of group hide and seek around the camp).

They have all been amazing and given everything their all. They have done you all proud and I know that they will continue to do so. Hope you are enjoying a peaceful weekend!! We are off to get ready for bed before kayaking in the Olympic sports venue in the morning.

Day 1

June 23rd, 2017

We have had a great day on the beach, playing volleyball having a tour of site and singing around a campfire. The children have been an absolute pleasure as always. The WIFI is very slow so I have only been able to upload a few photos.

WALT carry out a fair test.

June 21st, 2017

Our investigation into how excercise affects heart rate went slightly adrift when 2 baby birds fell from the tree and died. We found out the the mother had probably kicked them out of the nest as they were too weak but spent some time digging a grave for them. We also found out that they were baby pigeons through some internet research and that they were probably around 5 days old.

We then went back to our science investigation and spent time carrying out a range of excercises and recording our heart rate. Next week we will be analysing the results!

We used a range of techniques to create different textures with a biro. Some included hatching , cross hatching, stippling and back and forth.
