Class 6 email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
WELCOME TO YEAR 6 2020-21!
We start this academic year in a situation like no other, with challenges facing us all. However, Class 6 this year is not only a Year Group, it is also a bubble and we are going to work as a team, following school procedures, to keep ourselves and each other safe, to ensure we can catch up with any lost learning as best as we can and that, despite some hurdles along the way, we have a fantastic, fun and memorable year together!
Alongside myself, Class 6 is lucky enough to have Mrs Lowings, a fabulous Teaching Assistant, working alongside us to support with our learning.
Mrs Doel is going to be teaching Art and Music to the class on a Monday afternoon and Selena will be coming into school on a Tuesday morning to deliver the DARE Programme to the class. These adults will all be included in our bubble and following safety guidelines to allow for this.
Rewards and Sanctions
The ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour system will continue as usual across the school with children starting each day on a green card. Gold cards can be earnt by going above and beyond what is expected in work, behaviour or attitude and in Class 6, when a Gold Card is given, a raffle ticket can be put into the purple (of course) box. Each Friday the raffle will be drawn for the chance to win a prize.
Platinum Cards are awarded for going way above and beyond and for really wowing! A prize can be chosen on receipt of a Platinum and a certificate and pencil will be presented in Thursday’s Platinum Assembly in front of the whole school. House points are also awarded for Platinum Cards.
I also award my famous ‘Smarty Pants of the Week’ that I have been doing every week since my first year of teaching. A Smarty Pants certificate and box of Smarties is given to whoever stands out to me over the course of the week for being great!
Yellow cards serve as a warning for not behaving as expected and red cards will be given if this warning is not heeded. If your child receives a red card, you will be informed by a phone call, a break time will be missed to reflect on the behaviour, the incident will be logged and house points will be deducted.
For information on homework, please go to the Homework link at the top of the page.
See below a timetable which outlines the structure and timings for the school day for Year 6. This is a guide and is subject to change but gives an idea of what a typical week looks like in Class 6.
We have lots of exciting themes to get our teeth into throughout the year. See the Year 6 Curriculum Map below for what we are going to be learning.

Miss Bewick's Foster Cats
And finally, you may have heard that I am a crazy cat lady! It's true! I volunteer for a cat charity called 'Gracies Cat Charity Nottingham' which is a small local recue charity. I have been fostering cats for just over a year now and take poorly, stray, abandoned or wild cats and kittens into my care, nurse them back to health and teach them to trust humans so that they can be adopted and go to a forever home. Although I told the charity that two at a time is my maximum, over the summer, I managed to end up with two cats and then a litter of five five-week old kittens who were abandoned by a stray mum in a shed. I'll leave you to do the maths!
I'm sure it may have been mentioned to you that I talk about my rescue cats and kittens quite frequently, so for those of you who are interested, below are some photos of the kitties I've fostered up until now...
Tia and Tiger Bramble and Crumble

I hope you're having a fabulous Summer holiday. I promised I'd check in with you all and give you a foster kitty update. So, here I am, doing just that...

Email sent out from Miss Ireland to Year 6
Dear Y6 Parents and Carers
Thank you for completing the survey regarding Y6 return to school. As suspected there was a resounding majority that wanted to return which makes planning much easier. I have desperately wanted to have them back in school sooner and have tried everything in my power to get them in somehow so thank you for your support and understanding with it.
I thought it best that I contact you separately now to inform you of the details that you will need.
On Mon 13th July Y6 pupils will enter the school via the main gate on Vale Road at 8.40am and leave by the same gate at 3.20pm. The gate will close promptly and latecomers unfortunately will not be admitted for that day. The school crossing patrol has resumed so if you are thinking about allowing your child to arrive and leave on their own as they get ready for secondary school independence this fact may help set your mind at ease about them crossing the road at a busy time of the day.
Children will remain throughout the day in set bubbles of 15 children in each, being taught by either Miss Bewick or Mrs Lowings. Y6 keyworker children will also move to these bubbles. Miss Bewick will inform you via text early that morning which bubble your child will be in. We aim to mix abilities and try to accommodate friendship groups to some extent. Children will not be able to mix between these bubbles, even at lunchtime. Children should wear uniform or as close to uniform as you can get. I'm sure many will have grown and you do not want to be purchasing new uniform at this stage! Please wear trainers so that the children are able to take part in any PE sessions without needing to change clothes.
A set Mid-Day Supervisor will be with the same bubble everyday. Children may revert to their usual dinner preference. If school dinners are requested these should be payable on the usual school money system. FSM children will receive a meal and no longer receive the FSM voucher. This will resume during the summer holiday period. I have attached the interim menu for you to this email.
The children will be in Classroom 1 and Classroom 2 with Miss Bewick overseeing all of the learning for both bubbles but Mrs Lowings executing it for her bubble and Miss Bewick for hers. Therefore the children will access the same learning. Learning will be centred around wellbeing, transition to Y7, sex education that has been missed earlier in the term, and preparation for leavers assembly. Due to the nature and sensitivity of some of the content of these lessons, online learning for Y6 will stop from that date.
Children will not require bags, organisers or pencil cases. Only lunch boxes and a water bottle will be permitted in school. If your child does not have a water bottle we will not be able to provide cups like we previously have. Any equipment needed will be provided by the school and named for each individual child.
Children should attend for the full 2 weeks Mon-Thurs. Drop in days are not permitted at this stage as this would defeat the purpose of the bubble and we are no longer operating childcare provision but since 1st June back to educational provision. If your child is unwell in any way that is fine and children should not come to school if they have symptoms of Covid-19. They will not be admitted again until a negative test result has been achieved.
We aim to hold some kind of leavers assembly on Thurs 23rd July at 4pm. The reason for this time is so that we can hold the event outside with all of the Y6 class together and achieve social distancing when the rest of the school have left. At this point in time I am unable to invite parents to gatherings of more than 6 people so unless guidance changes we will record the service and provide you with access to it. I will update you nearer the time as to the most up-to-date situation.
I have attached the updated parental agreement for the current school situation for you to check over. By sending your child to school you are choosing to agree to these terms.
On a personal note I do feel disappointed for the Y6 children that their primary phase at St Johns has had to end in this way. However, the Y6 team and the rest of the school will do their best to make it a memorable time for them before they go on their journey to secondary.
If you have any questions please do contact the school for more help.
I am REALLY looking forward to seeing all of your children back on 13th July.
Well done, Isla for being chosen for the best 24/7 National Writing Day Story in Class 6 written at home!
Isla has been awarded a Platinum for making it to the finals where her story will be judged among the other finalists! Read her super short story below! Miss Bewick.
“One day, Earth will die!” They warned us; we didn't listen.
“Stop!” They told us; we didn't listen.
Now we're dying, we should've listened.

Mr Collins has sent me Kai's National Writing Day 24/7 story as the winner from his in-school group and it's soooooo good!
One day, looking out of my window, watching it swoop right to left, a dragon.
Midday I was above the clouds.
Best day ever!
Absolutely brilliant, Kai - well done! Definitely Platinum worthy! Everyone else at home - you have until Friday lunchtime to send me yours! You've got to be in it to win it!
Well done Isla, Ella and Olivia for communicating with me this week and getting their names on the spinner and congratulations to Olivia for winning the spin and earning herself a Platinum, which will be presented by Mrs Belton today!
I'm also going to mention Isla, who is on track for communicating with me EVERY DAY!
That's still only 10% of the class I'm hearing from, so the spinner has been re-set for a new week and let's see if we can up the number of names on the spinner for the week coming!
I'd love to hear from you!

Today's Key Stage 2 Assembly was based upon George Floyd, Anti-racism and the Black Lives Matter Assembly.
To find out more about this subject that has been all over the news, click on the image below:
A VERY ROYAL ASSEMBLY!
Today, The Duchess of Cambridge spoke to all children in an online assembly to share the importance of spreading a little kindness for our mental wellbeing.
This assembly was developed in collaboration with the children’s mental health charity Place2Be and encourages children to explore ways in which they can show kindness, and recognise the benefits of kindness to others.

Here's our very talented dance teacher Ellie, with the third and final House Dance lesson.
What would be lovely would be for some of you to send to me a video of you having a go at her routine for me to forward it to her. I'm sure she'd love to see the results of her hard work!

From Monday 8th June, the home learning is going to change just slightly to fit in with more key worker children and teachers being in school in mixed year 'bubbles' or teaching groups. So that the teachers in school are able to deliver lessons to all ages in school, all classes are going to be set:
- BBC Bitesize English lessons each day for their year group
- White Rose Maths lessons (plus the resources uploaded to the class pages as we've paid a subscription fee for this) each day for their year group
- A new and exciting weekly Home Learning Theme Menu with lots of activities to choose from. This will change each week and will be set for each Key Stage.
- Plus any extra reading, spelling, times tables, PE, French work, as the teacher sees fit
Up until now, an easier differentiated option has been provided for each maths and English lesson. This will no longer be possible to provide, but if the work is a little tricky, please feel free to look at the lesson from the year groups below, which should be a step easier and more attainable.
As outlined in letters to parents/carers, the class email will still be up and running for communication between teachers and children for sharing of work but responses may not be instant. I would love this contact to continue and am here to help!

Hey my lovely class! I hope you all had a lovely half term, enjoying the sunshine. Can you believe it is June already? Summer is coming! Although it feels like it's been here for a while now, with all the glorious weather we've been having.
I hope you've been looking after yourselves and your family and have been keeping in touch with friends. Haw bored are you on a scale of 1-10, 1 being you're absolutely fine and you are happily finding new things to do everyday and never feel bored and 10 being you could die of utter boredom any second now? Email me and let me know how you're doing. I'd love to hear from you because I'm missing you more than ever!
Today, (Monday 1st June) is an INSET day - an In Service Training Day, NOT an Insect Day like we've discussed before! So, there is no work set specifically for today but there will be from tomorrow. I've uploaded the weekly timetable plan so you can see what's coming up.
If you'd like to, you could start having a look and get going at the '30 Days Wild 2020' I've uploaded below, along with a link to the website. There are loads of great activities on there to keep you busy, so no excuse for boredom now!
Don't forget, Miss Jackson is putting daily activities for you to do on the Sports Page, to keep you fit and active!
It's the post-SATs half term and I wouldn't have set you any homework! You only instruction would have been to have had fun!
So, have a break and enjoy this week and I'll be back setting work for you again from Monday next week!
If you are worried about getting bored, or you would like to get ahead, go to:
BBC bitesize are not setting any lessons this week with it being half term, but you could choose any of the lessons from the previous weeks that take your fancy!

Today is DT Day!
Below are the two options of activities to choose from to design, make and evaluate and WOW Mrs Bloom!
Click on the document below to see a larger version of the tasks!
To make a den!
For Purple Time this week, have a go at making a den!
This was one of my favourite things to do when I was your age. I used to make a den under my bed and arrange cushions and cuddly toys to make a snuggly place to read. In the summer, I made a den behind the trunk of a big, old tree near to where I lived.
Savannah has already done this by putting up a tent in her back garden, making it into a cosy sleeping space and sleeping in it under the stars with her sister!
You could go to Colwick park and build a den in the woods. Make a frame out of large branches and then waterproof the structure with leafy twigs and don't forget to make comfy seating areas inside!
Or you could stay at home and have a go at making one of the Ikea lockdown fort designs. Have a look at the different designs by clicking on the image below to go to the link.
If parents would prefer you not to create chaos in their home with rearranging furniture and cushions, you could draw the design of your dream den. It could be a tree house, an underground den or a secret kid's cave, only accessibly through the bookshelf in your room by pressing books in a certain order with your fingerprints!
There's definitely a DT link here for DT day! Clever, eh?
If you're really interested in the RE, as I am, and would like to find out more about how Muslims are adapting to Ramadan in lockdown, watch these documentaries made by British muslims in the last few weeks showing us what Ramadan during the Coronavirus outbreak has been like for them. I watched them all last night and they are really interesting!
These first programmes are a series of 5 minute snippets covering different aspects. Quick and easy to watch! Click on the image below to go to the webpage and get watching.
This next really cool documentary is called 'My mate's a muslim' and it is about two muslims who persuade a friend to fast (not eat in daylight hours) to learn what it's like to observe Ramadan and learn more about their religion. Again, I watched it last night and it's really interesting, thought provoking and funny! Click on the image and have a watch!
Ellie is completing her current Hip Hop series of personalised dance tutorials choreographed just for us at St.Johns with the third session of three in this style of dance!
I don't know about you, but I have managed all the moves just about so far (although they don't come naturally) but then last week, when the music was on and everything sped up, I looked like a crazy thing thrashing around and everything went to pot! That's okay though and I'm going to have another go as session 3 and keep practising! I hope you are too!

It's SATs week!!!
It's weird isn't it, to think that this week we would be doing our SATs tests! How things have changed!
Email me if you'd like and let me know how you feel about that. You may feel happy, relieved, sad, disappointed, overwhelmed, confused, a mixture of every feeling you have ever felt or you may not even know how you feel about it - that's a feeling!
Even though we're not in school, taking tests together this week, we're still all in this together and we will remember being together through this together! So keep smiling!
Monday 11th May

TODAY IS VE DAY!
For our history themed day, along with the rest of the country, we are going to be celebrating VE day. On the 8th May 1945 (75 years ago) the Nazis surrendered and 'Victory in Europe' was declared. Sadly millions had died, but the millions who had been saved were able to celebrate the end of a six year world war and the VE Day parties went on for quite some time!
Start by watching a Horrible Histories clip by clicking the image below!
Now, have a go at some of the fun activities planned for you by Mrs Haythorne.
Attached below is the document with all the links.
Imogen has written and recorded her parody for Mr Seaton's Music Day Challenge and it's BRILLIANT!

Don't forget you've got plenty of time to write and record your own (one week) to enter the competition.
Maybe Imogen has inspired you to give it a go. Be brave!

TODAY IS MUSIC DAY!
Have a read of Mr Seaton's letter, attached below, explaining the day!
Here are some examples of some brilliant parodies about lockdown and the coronavirus to inspire you to write and perform your own! Click on the images to have a watch and listen! Which one is your favourite?
This is the first one that went viral, performed by a very musical family, based on a song from a famous musical.
This next one was written and performed by a pupil at Mr Belton's new school, Jesse Gray and is based on a song from the musical, 'Grease'.
And this one is written and performed to the song Bohemian Rhapsody, by Queen.
I can't wait to see what brilliant versions you come up with! Get the whole family involved and have fun!

Purple Time Activity
Make Your Walk Magic!
I go for a walk every day around where I live and I love that people in my community have done little things to make my walk feel magic and like we are in this together and I am not alone.
On my walks, I have come across an art tree and a gratitude tree that some people have started and so many people have obviously enjoyed adding to. I certainly have! I now walk past these trees every day to see what people have added.
Have a look at the photos I’ve taken of these two trees. Do you have something similar near to you that you could make something special for, or could you be that special person that starts something so lovely?
The Art Tree
The Gratitude Tree
Perhaps have a go at making one of these 'God's eyes' or a pompom, like Nathan did.
Tomorrow (Thursday 30th April) is Wellbeing Day, organised by Mrs Belton. To find the video, activities and resources that you will need for the day, go to - Class Pages - Useful Links for Children - and you will find everything you need there. She would love to hear via the Wellbeing email what you have been up to, or you could email me and I will forward on to her. Let's look after our minds as well as our bodies during lockdown.
Some of the fabulous poetry written today...
If I were King
If I were King,
I’d get my soldiers to build me a swing.
If I were King of Fiji,
I’d get my family to come and see me.
If I were King of France,
I’d pull down my dad’s underpants.
If I were King of Greece,
I’d build a masterpiece.
If I were King of Thailand,
I’d build my mum an island.
If I were King of Congo,
I’d learn to play the bongo.
If I were King of Canada,
I’d adopt a baby Panda.
If I were King of Ghana,
I’d have my own piranha.
If I were King of the Universe,
I’d put World War 1 in reverse.

This is Kai and Jessamyn's friend, Laura. She is an army nurse helping out on the COVID-19 ward at James Cook Hospital in Middlesborough.
Laura took the pictures that were drawn and sent to her by Kai and Jess to work and put them up in The Red Zone, Ward 6.
The picture above Laura's head was drawn by Jessamyn; it represents Laura herself. The rainbow picture was also drawn by Jess and the picture below with the words "Thank you" was drawn by Kai.
For Thursday's Art Lesson you will need some feathers!
So, when you are out and about over the next couple of the days in your garden, on the way to the shop or on your daily exercise look out for feathers! There are lots around at the moment. See if you can find up to 5 different ones!
Look what I found over Easter nestled on one of my flower pots!
I think it's a Blackbird nest. They nest close to the ground in undergrowth or bushes. There is no sign of any eggs in the nest, but it is very open so they may have decided it is not the best place after all!
I am leaving it well alone so it is not disturbed just in case!
I live on a disused canal and am so lucky to have ducks, coots and moorhens right on my doorstep! Very soon there will be cute little babies as all of these birds are busy making their nests in preparation for egg laying. My favourites have to be the swans! Did you know that all swans belong to the Queen and they usually stay together for their lifetime - very romantic!
This is a picture of the Daddy swan having a rest on the riverbank from collecting nest material and a photo of Mummy swan who is sat on her nest of eggs a few metres away from my front door! AMAZING!
So, I'm going to be feather collecting for the next few days.
I'm going to see if I can find 5 different ones before Thursday! See if you can too!
I hope you all had a restful Easter. It might not feel like it, but the Summer Term has started and there is so much to look forward to! Miss Jackson has the Summer Show written and ready to go so we HAVE to be back for that! Fingers crossed! I'm busy planning lots of home learning for you to do, if you choose, and I'm communicating with Secondary Schools to tell them all about you and how fantastic you are. Despite what is going on in the world, rest assured that all of that is still happening!
We are going to be carrying on with our English and Maths learning as we were before Easter, with mostly revision of what we have already learnt together plus a few added new bits dropped in. In Science, we are continuing with our Adaptation and Evolution learning and Wildlife is going to be our Art and design focus. We are going to be starting a new Geography theme looking at Natural Disasters, which links very well with what we are going through right now! Very topical!
So, keep on being positive, make every day count and remember that we are a team! Just to remind you of that, I thought I'd share with you the photo you know I have as my screen saver and that I took on our first few days together. Look how young you all looked compared to now and look how far we've come TOGETHER!
HAPPY EASTER CLASS 6!
It's the Easter holidays. Yes, that means that you have 2 weeks off school to chill out at home, relax, slob in your PJs, do what you want when you want.....oh! That sounds weird now doesn't it?!
But nevertheless, it IS Easter time and therefore for the next couple of weeks, I am not going to be setting you daily English, Maths etc like I have been. Yay, I hear you cry! But I'll be bored, I hear you moan!
And for just that reason, I have created for you instead, an Easter Activity Menu with fun learning for you to choose from, to prevent boredom. Remember if you are bored, then YOU are being boring! ;-)
This is what the menu looks like:
You will find it attached below. Also attached are a few additional resources I've found that you may want to have a look at and use as you wish.
The usual daily home learning menu will resume from Monday 20th April.
I'd love you to keep emailing me to show me what activities you have chosen to do, along with anything else you have thought of to keep your brain and body busy, whilst staying safe.
I'm missing you all so much and thinking of you every day. The last few weeks haven't been easy and we've been separated from each other. BUT, we are going through this together, and that will always bond us and no one will ever be able to take that bond away.
You may have joined in with the clapping for the heroes that are playing their part in this Corona Virus crisis. But I think that EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE HEROES. You are certainly MY heroes.
You have dealt with this brilliantly and it hasn't been easy. You have carried on, you have been brave and you are playing a massive part in saving lives by being at home and keeping yourselves and others safe.
I just wanted to say that I am so proud and I think that each and every one of you is AMAZING:
Shaan, you are AMAZING! Gracie-Mai, you are AMAZING! Ella, you are AMAZING! Imogen, you are AMAZING! Max, you are AMAZING! Nathan, you are AMAZING! Jessica, you are AMAZING! Leo, you are AMAZING! Oliwia, you are AMAZING! Olivia, you are AMAZING! Savannah, you are AMAZING! Shelbie, you are AMAZING! Jack, you are AMAZING! Will, you are AMAZING! Nikita, you are AMAZING! Finley, you are AMAZING! Milly-Ann, you are AMAZING! Lewis, you are AMAZING! Ruby, you are AMAZING! Libby, you are AMAZING! Jesse, you are AMAZING! Kai, you are AMAZING! Miley, you are AMAZING! Harry, you are AMAZING! Roxie, you are AMAZING! Ava, you are AMAZING! Poppy, you are AMAZING! Guy, you are AMAZING! Isla, you are AMAZING! Josh, you are AMAZING!
Enjoy Easter and have fun, remember the meaning behind it all, be good, be polite, be kind and eat LOADS of chocolate!
Happy Easter! Lots of love,
Miss Bewick x

Read Harry's fab story...
Today's story will begin in the great town of Nottingham, where an aggressive dragon has been spotted soaring through the counties of England. Scientists have a rough idea of what this dragon looks like.
People have seen this dragon ranging from places like Dover to Manchester to Nottingham. At night people have said to have witnessed load noises, which they said were like a predator's call.
In Leicester, two people have gone missing with no explanation; all that was left was a tooth on their bed - this is a true mystery.
Not only have people gone missing but farm animals have gone missing too. These include: sheep ; cows ; chickens ; pigs and more. The farmers who own these animals have said that when they went to let the animals into the field, all that was left was a pile of guts and scarlet-coloured blood. The farmers were in shock and called 999 immediately. When the police arrived at the scene, the guts had vanished and so had the farmer. WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED?
Private investigators were called. Instantly the investigators found three vermilion glowing scales with scratch marks on them. The investigators took it to a lab but they couldn’t identify the anonymous species. Weeks went past with more people going missing but no creature was found.
Until one day, when there was a cricket match, the fans were in the stands and the players were getting ready when … a prodigious dragon flew over everyone’s head. Whilst breathing atomic breath, it swiftly burned the cricket grounds to ashes and the same with the people.
This was a true tragedy and now the British nation is hunting this supposed monster. However some people believe this formidable beast can be tamed. Today’s story will back tomorrow with the latest news on this blood curdling creature.

He's starting tomorrow with 'The Terrible Triplets' the one I wanted to read, and started reading to you in school and was REALLY funny, but couldn't continue online due to technological restrictions! Who'd have thunk it?! Go to his page at 11am each day to listen!
First Technological Fail Alert!!!
The Shang Dynasty e-book needed for the theme menu activity wouldn't upload!
We're learning as we are going, day by day! Instead, do some extra reading or some of the colouring I gave you, in the sunshine, whilst topping up on your Vitamin D!
Email address for Class 6: email@example.com
(Emails will be answered ASAP. Please be patient as some staff are in school with key worker children)
Remember you can email any queries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Emails will be replied to ASAP, but please be patient as teachers are still required to be in school for some days to care for children of Key Workers)
WELCOME TO YEAR 6 2019-20!
Year 6 is not for the faint-hearted! We have a jam-packed term ahead, full of fascinating learning topics to get our teeth into as well as many fun filled events.
We are going to be getting to grips with drug education through DARE, celebrating the school bank's 4th birthday, and going on a week's residential to Rock UK, which will be shared in a family assembly. We are going to once again be inviting parents and carers into school for a repeat of the very popular 'Plan it, teach it' morning, celebrating Harvest and Christmas at church and we might even have time to squeeze in a trip based on our Crime and Punishment topic! Phew!
So tighten your seat belts, Year 6's of 2019/20 - it's going to be a thrilling ride!
