10th September 2021 Welcome to Year 6!

We have had a great start to the year in Year 6. We began by reminding ourselves about the Zones of Regulation and the importance of having a Growth Mindset to help motivate ourselves to be the best we can be and to make good progress in our learning. To support this “can do” message, we have been learning the song “Happy”, by Pharrell Williams in music and have practised moving to the beat (see photos).

We have really enjoyed reading our first book in Literacy, which is part of a whole-school project based on “And Tango Makes Three”, which invites us to think about how “all kinds of love can make a family”. We have begun our learning about the Vikings and have started the exciting book “Viking Boy” as our class reader.

The start of our Science learning involved finding out about how we discovered what makes a healthy diet and how James Lind found a cure for scurvy.

Today was a very special day because Year 6 met their Reception buddies for the first time, got to play with them and have lunch together.

A super start to the year!
