6BM 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 6BM's class page!
Hello! I'm Miss Moulton; I have been teaching at Offley for the last 12 months in Year 4 and will be starting in Year 6 from September. My hobbies include: dance, drama, singing and reading. This year I will also be taking on the role of joint PE co-ordinator with Mrs Rae. I am very excited for the new school year and can’t wait to see what it brings!
Spring Term Information
This term, our big question is 'Where in the world has 6BM got the best chance of survival?'. The children will be exploring the various biomes through their Geography lessons and learning about the key features of each. Through Science, they will study how animals have evolved and adapted to their environments, also looking at animals that have become extinct and why. They will also study the architecture of different landmarks around the world through Art and Design. At the end of the topic, the children will create their own documentary about living in different biomes. Our text this half term is 'A Story Like the Wind' by Gill Lewis, which explores the issue of asylum seeking.
Each week I will update the website with information about what is currently being covered. I will also upload any homework or spellings given out that week. If you have any questions or queries feel free to see me at the end of the school day or contact me through the school office. Admin will then forward on any messages or arrange meetings at a mutually convenient time.
PE- This will take place on a Tuesday afternoon, the children will need indoor and outdoor kit. This half term we will be focusing on skills in Dance and Athletics.
PPA Cover - This year Mrs Mclauglin and Mrs Edwards will be covering me on a Friday afternoon. They will be delivering French, Music and Computing to the children during this term.
Support Staff- This year we are very lucky to have Mrs Badger and Mrs Cartlidge working within our class!
Accelerated Reader - The children have been retested, and all have their new ZPD's. They have asked if they can bring books in from home to read, so I have copied below the link for AR book finder. This means children will be able to check to see if books from home are within their reading range.
Free Friday- Every friday during guided reading the children will be invited to bring in a book, magazine or comic of their choice to read in school. The children will be recommending reads to each other as well as teacher led recommendations. This will hopefully inspire the children and help develop their love of reading.
Weekly Update – 08.03.2019
We have had another fantastic week in 6BM. The children had a great time during Science Week and have learnt so much. They have also created some amazing Rube Goldberg machines, with one group even managing to open a packet of crisps without touching the packet! Pictures will be coming soon...
Thank you to all parents and scientists who came in and gave up their time during the week. The children have learnt about crytology, forensic science, drones, exotic illnesses and food groups.
Reminder – Next Tuesday we have a workshop linked to the text, 'The Arrival'. If your permission has not been sent in, please ensure it is returned by Tuesday.
Following our discussions with the children and the letter that parents will have received last week, please see the videos below and discuss how you can support your child to be safe online. If you havent already!
Homework: Pages 66-69 (position and direction) Due in 22.03.19
In Maths, this week we have been learning about position and direction in a coordinate grid. We have been describing the position of shapes using coordinates, translating shapes across four quadrants and also reflecting shapes across the y and x-axis. As well as using coordinates throughout the week, we have also consolidated our knowledge of shape, and been reminded of the properties of some more complex shapes, such as trapezium and rhombus.
In English, we have completed out hot-write. The children have wrote their own flashback narratives and the writing they produced was fantastic. There was a wonderful amount of emotive language used, and the children thought carefully about their word choices and use of punctuation. They were also able to transfer their knowledge of colons and semi-colons independently into their writing. At the end of the week, we started to study a short film called, 'Adrift'. We have spent time exploring the events in the story and orally retelling it.
Homework: Pages 62-63 Due in 19.03.19
