Yr 6 Term 1 2019

Owl & Swift Classes

Welcome to Year 6

The Owl teacher is Mr Taylor and the Swift teacher is Mr Boyle. Our fantastic teaching assistant is Mrs Hendy. On a Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Price and Mrs Bonner teach both classes for Art and Music. Mrs Wilson teaches French every Friday.

We expect hard work and smiling faces in our year group. Along with doing lots of learning, there will be plenty of fun squeezed into every day.

We will be swimming this term, on Tuesday mornings, starting on 10th September. Please make sure that children bring their swimming kit - we won't be phoning home so if they forget it they won't go.
An Ancient Greek challenge from Miss Wilson....
 
Can you:

1. Find the connection between Greek numbers and shapes?

2. Find the etymology of the word 'Polygon'?

 

 
Some very special visitors joined our discussion about our class text, 'Who Let the Gods Out'... the Mayor, Marvin Reese, Deputy Mayor, Councillor Asher Craig (who is also Cabinet Member with responsibility for libraries), and a group of Bristol Librarians.
 
Our mature, thoughtful and perceptive contributions made Miss Norman extremely proud. The visitors were clearly impressed by our in-depth discussion.

Here are our Rock Band Project song lyrics to learn...
 
 
The teaching staff decided Yr 6 had earned a Greek banquet for their hard work studying ancient Greece this term!
