Welcome Back to our Lovely Year 6 Children
On the 15th June we welcomed back some of our wonderful Year 6 children - we were so excited to have children in our classrooms again - and what a wonderful couple of weeks it has been so far! The children complete Maths and English learning during the first part of the day, have a 30 minute PE session and then a focus on the foundation subjects for the remainder of the session. The classrooms have been a buzz of activity and full of smiles and laughter, which has been so lovely to see. We have been busy with algebra in Maths, working on our VIPERS in reading, writing descriptions in English and creating our own artwork in the style of Kadinsky that show the emotional journeys our children have been on during this strange time.
May I just take this opportunity to say how incredibly proud of the Year 6's I am - they have taken all the new routines and expectations on board and have made coming back to school an absolute pleasure! I will work my hardest to ensure Year 6 have the best few weeks and finish their time at Priestsic on a high! Lots to look forward to with surprises and treats along the way.

This week we have been practising our writing skills and working on expanded noun phrases by using adjectives, determiners, verbs, adverbs and prepositional phrases. We looked at some WAGOLLs and spent some time sharing ideas and uplevelling our phrases and sentences before writing our own settings descriptions independently. Take a look at some examples below.
When the children first returned to school we spent a long time simply talking about what they'd experienced and discussed the feelings and thoughts that they had had during this strange and difficult time. This led us onto an art project inspired by an artist who used colours and paint to portray his emotions. We talked about which colours represented which emotions and the children went on to create their own piece inspired by Kadinsky. Enjoy looking through some of the amazing artwork below.
