This week the children in year 6 took part in anti-bullying week along with the rest of the school.  Our class focus was ‘online/cyber bullying’, during which the children focused on the different kinds of online bullying and how to manage and prevent them.

They created their own ‘Online Commandments’:

The children also created their own year 6 Anti-Bullying Charter, which we now have displayed in the classroom and which all the children will sign up to.  Please click the link below to see the children’s hard work:

Year 6 AB Charter

Well done to our hand writer of the week, Ava.

This week Jake received the ‘dip in the box’ for his much improved behaviour.

Gabriel was added to the Golden Book for his excellent spooky story writing.

Rhys was also added to the Golden Book for his outstanding fractions, decimals and percentages work in maths this week.

All the children have received their weekly homework today.  Please ensure that your child completes all their homework and returns it to school by Wednesday morning.  We now have a maths homework club every Monday and Tuesday lunchtime for any child who needs support or simply wants to complete their homework in their lunchtime.

After school study groups continue to run.  Please encourage your child to take part if they have been invited to attend.

Attendance: 95.6%

Lateness: 66 minutes

This week began with a visit to Beamish where the children spent time in the pit village and town, exploring what life was like before and during World War 1.  During the visit the children were employed by the Home Office to investigate why a 14 year old boy had lied about his age to join the army.  They interviewed ‘witnesses’ around the pit village to better understand the motivations for young boys to lie about the age to join up and fight in the war.

Of course we made time to visit the sweet shop, where the adults were just as excited as the children!

Well done to Charlie for his outstanding investigative skills at Beamish – you’ve really earned your ‘dip’ in the treat box!

A huge pat on the back for Kieran for being added to the Golden Book for his excellent recount.

Well done Jaydon for being added to the Golden book for making a huge effort in maths lessons.

All year 6 children brought a letter home tonight with information about a proposed visit to London in May of next year.  If you would like your child to join the visit, please complete the slip at the bottom of the letter and return to school with a £20 non-refundable deposit by Friday of next week (16th November).  In the case of the trip not going ahead all deposits will be returned.

Next week is national anti-bullying week which are taking part in.  Throughout the week year 6 will be writing their own anti-bullying charter and further developing their understanding of what cyber bullying is and how to deal with it.  As part of the week and as it’s Children in Need on Friday, children will be having a non-uniform day.
