Yr 6 - Giraffe

Welcome to Giraffe Class!

Hello!

It is my great pleasure to be the teacher of Giraffe Class again this year and I am very much looking forward to the year ahead! Unbelievably, this is going to be my 8th year at Barley Close and I think it's about my 20th year of teaching. I've taught in every year group during my time as a teacher, but recently, most of my experience has been in Year 5 and 6. 

   It's really important to me that everyone who is in my class enjoys coming to school and thinks that class time is fun. Yes we have lots of learning to do - but when you think about how many hours of our lives we spend at school, it's as important to laugh, smile and have a good time!

  We are lucky enough to have Mrs Selway in class with us as well.  Mrs G will also be teaching you on Monday afternoons. 

 

  I will post regular updates here, so please check back to see what has been happening in class. I will also post spellings here on a weekly basis. If you need to contact me, please email me on karen.beard@barleyclose.org.uk.

PE

In Term 6, PE will be on  a Tuesday and Thursday. Long hair should be tied back, earrings should be removed and no branded sportswear should be worn. 

 

Reading

Children will be bringing home a school reading book. The reading books will need to be sent into school every Friday, so that they can be changed. 

 Children will also need to bring in their reading records on the same day, as we will be checking that they have read 5 times at home. This expectation is in line with local primary schools and is also good preparation for Year 7 when they will be expected to read regularly. Parents/carers need to sign the reading record 5 times - either to say the child has read to them, or that they have seen the child reading independently. Although children often protest that 'they are too old to read to an adult', they certainly always enjoy it in school and it's a nice calming activity to do together in a busy world!

 

 

Maths Homework

All children will be given a TTRS log in, which they can access from either the app or the TTRS website.  The expectation is that children will complete at least 25 minutes a week on TTRS. 

Children will also be given a MyMaths log in and will be expected to complete at least two activities a week. Both of these things will be monitored by me. 

 

 

Friday 24th May 

Giraffe Class have thoroughly embraced Sports Week and they have tried out archery, karate, tennis, rounders and skipping challenges. They also enjoyed making fruit kebabs! 

  We have also learnt about Nelson Mandela and the animals of South Africa in Geography and created artwork based on the work of Tony Cragg.

 

Have a lovely holiday and see you all on Monday 3rd June!

I know everything always feels better when the sun is shining - but Giraffe Class have been even more amazing than normal this week!! In English and Maths, they have all worked REALLY hard on their revision and I know that they are going to smash their KS2 tests next week. 

 In Geography, we learnt about the impact of Apartheid in South Africa and in Science, we researched why animals camouflage themselves. Our PE lessons involved the first game of rounders of the year and also sports day practise. Yesterday, we hosted a group of staff from UWE, who showed the children how to create a Lego-inspired print - everyone had a great time and the finished artwork was incredible!

Well Giraffe Class have been amazing this week - even by their standards!! In English, they wrote FABULOUS formal letters, in character as Winston Churchill and many have mastered the art of using semi-colons and colons accurately. Our Maths lessons centred around ratio and proportion and again, they aced that. In History, they wrote INCREDIBLE diary entries as Anne Frank and in PE, they played great games of benchball and today they wowed the dance coaches with the ease with which they picked up a street-dancing routine that they are working on. I was a very proud teacher!!
