Slipper Project

The children have been busy creating a slipper design. We will be starting to make our slippers on Monday. The children have written a list of resources they would like for their slipper. St Albans Market and Fashion and Fabrics are good places to pick up the necessary items. In the past, some children have recycled materials from home e.g. an old dressing gown or blanket.

 

VE Day Party

In the last week of a busy half term, we will be having a VE Day party to celebrate the end of our WWII topic.

On Thursday 24/5/18, we would like the children to come dressed up for the occasion – 1945 children. Please provide bring an item of ‘wartime’ party food (not sweets) to share.

Lake Trip

16th May 2018

Dear Parents/Carers

 

We are very proud of our Year 6 children: they have all worked hard, tried their best and been a credit to you. As a well-deserved treat, we are all looking forward to our trip to the lake on Friday 18th May.

The children will need to wear comfortable shoes. They can wear non-uniform for this this visit; however, they must wear their red school jumper/ cardigan. All children will need a packed lunch - those children who normally have a school dinner can have a school packed lunch if they wish. Please provide plenty water and sun screen/ hat. Children may want to bring items to play with - football, cricket set, Frisbee or other small portable toys - but they must be responsible for them. Children may also bring up to £5 in a wallet or purse to purchase a drink or an ice cream.

Children will be back for the end of the school day.

Mr Brown, Mrs Nicholas and Mrs Baker

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Please reply by Thursday 17th May.

HALF TERM HOMEWORK

History Home Learning.

Due Wednesday 1st November, 2017.

You are going to represent one of the countries at a European Union meeting next week.

At the meeting you should be able to say hello in the language of your country.

Find out how your adopted country was involved in WWII, which side they were on and if they are still in the EU.

Draw the flag of your chosen country on an A4 sheet of paper and bring it to the meeting.

 

Y6 English Homework

Due Wednesday 1st November 2017

 

After half term Year 6 will be studying Biographies in English. Over the following few weeks, the children will write the biography of a person known personally to them. Each child must choose someone from family or friends to write about. Half term homework is to begin to gather information about the chosen person and to organise (not write) the information into the following sections.

 

FAMILY/ EARLY LIFE

  • Where born, when, family, mother & father

 

SCHOOL/ EDUCATION

 

ADULTHOOD/ CAREER

 

KEY MOMENTS/ ACHIEVEMENTS

 

These facts should be in note form only as the actual writing will be done in school.

 

In addition, children need to gather extra anecdotal information about the chosen person. The children need to try to show the personality of their chosen character and what makes them tick! The aim is to give a flavour of the person and their life- we are looking for more than simple facts.

 

Photographs, pictures or documents will enhance the biography. These can be photocopied in school and returned home safely.

 

Parents and grandparents have been very successful subjects for biographies in the past. The person chosen needs to be someone children can contact while this project is ongoing as additional information is sometimes required at short notice!

Thank you for your support with this project.
