The black Hat

 

‚Äč"There was once a boy, quite ordinary like any other, he lived in an old forest cabin with his mute grandmother.  There weren't many things a lonely, young boy like him could do so he went for long forest walks hoping he would find something new" 
Extract from 'The Black Hat'

One day on one of his long walks the boy finds an old black hat and he places it on his head.  When he takes it off and lays it by his bed, this is when the magic begins.

SATs WEEK!

Today is the first day of what would have been your SATs week. You should have been arriving at school from 8AM to enjoy a delicious breakfast in the school hall with all of your classmates, ready to take on the tests that you had been working towards all year.

Instead, you are at home, staying safe, doing the right thing. 

But... don't worry, I will be uploading a SATs test each day this week, in accordance with the SATs timetable. 

However, these are no ordinary SATs papers, these are St. Rose's alternative tests: Silly SATs!

They are not to be taken seriously. Have fun with them, and post your responses on the class blog.

As I said on Friday: We are all very proud of you and we know that you all would have fulfilled your potential.

As we start SATs week, here is a poem for you to reflect on and remember how extremely proud of you myself, Mr Lahert, Mr Carroll and all the other teachers are. 

You are all stars!

Just remember – a poem for Year 6

 

Just remember your times tables, we said, you need to know them all,

Breakfast is a must for you to grow big, strong and tall,

Adjective, adverbs, and use the correct tense, you’ll need it when you write,

As each and every one of you tried with all your might,

And learn those spellings too, we groaned, each and every rule,

They won’t treat you like this, we moaned, or be as understanding at high school,

“Where’s your homework again?” we screamed. “You won’t get away with this!”

“You’ve given us too much already and now I’m stressed out, Miss!”

“We’ve made mistakes and learned so much and ready to try our best,

But Miss, it’s unfair, we’ve worked or socks off, and now they’ve cancelled our test!”

 

Just remember my little ones, you’ve made us very proud,

But forget the learning, your personalities will stand out from the crowd,

Just remember you never gave up when it seemed so far from the start,

You learned as much as you possibly could and really did play your part,

Just remember what you’ve achieved and who you’ve become now,

Stand in front of your family, proud, and tell them to clap as you bow,

Just remember my Year 6s, what matters is you’re safe and well,

And one day, this insane story, you’ll be able to share and tell,

And one last thing, we miss you so, but sure we’ll see you before school’s end,

Just remember: look after each other, love, and be kind to all family and each and every friend.

Nobody visits Eerie-on-Sea in the winter. Especially not when darkness falls and the wind howls around Maw Rocks and the wreck of the battleship Leviathan, where even now some swear they have seen the unctuous malamander creep…

Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, knows that returning lost things to their rightful owners is not easy – especially when the lost thing is not a thing at all, but a girl. No one knows what happened to Violet Parma’s parents twelve years ago, and when she engages Herbie to help her find them, the pair discover that their disappearance might have something to do with the legendary sea-monster, the Malamander. Eerie-on-Sea has always been a mysteriously chilling place, where strange stories seem to wash up. And it just got stranger..

A Riddle!

It belongs to you, but other people use it more than you do. What is it?

Recommended Read!

Can you see me?

A fantastic book that will help to instill a deeper level of empathy, awareness and kindness. It is centered around a character's transition to Year 7, so it is perfect for you all!

A coming-of-age story about learning to celebrate yourself - and teaching the world to recognize you, too - perfect for fans of R. J. Palacio's Wonder!
"This glimpse into the world of a young autistic girl is astonishingly insightful and honest. Tally's struggles to 'fit in' are heart-wrenching, and her victories are glorious." - Ann M. Martin

 

Things Tally is dreading about moving to secondary school:

-- Being in classes without her best friends
-- New (scratchy) uniforms
-- Hiding her autism

Tally isn't ashamed of being autistic -- even if it complicates life sometimes, it's part of who she is. But this is her first year at Kingswood Academy, and her best friend, Layla, is the only one who knows. And while a lot of other people are uncomfortable around Tally, Layla has never been one of them . . . until now.

Something is different about Year 7, and Tally now feels like she has to act "normal." But as Tally hides her true self, she starts to wonder what "normal" means after all and whether fitting in is really what matters most.

Inspired by young coauthor Libby Scott's own experiences with autism, this is an honest and moving transition to secondary school story of friends, family, and finding one's place.

Ade loves living at the top of a tower block. From his window, he feels like he can see the whole world stretching out beneath him.
His mum doesn't really like looking outside - but it's going outside that she hates.
She's happier sleeping all day inside their tower, where it's safe.
But one day, other tower blocks on the estate start falling down around them and strange, menacing plants begin to appear.
Now their tower isn't safe anymore. Ade and his mum are trapped and there's no way out . .

This is such a brillaint book!

Liam has always felt a bit like he’s stuck between two worlds. This is primarily because he’s a twelve-year-old kid who looks like he’s about thirty. Sometimes it’s not so bad, like when his new principal mistakes him for a teacher on the first day of school or when he convinces a car dealer to let him take a Porsche out on a test drive. But mostly it’s just frustrating, being a kid trapped in an adult world. And so he decides to flip things around. Liam cons his way onto the first spaceship to take civilians into space, a special flight for a group of kids and an adult chaperone, and he is going as the adult chaperone. It’s not long before Liam, along with his friends, is stuck between two worlds again only this time he’s 239,000 miles from home.

The writing task for today is.....

 

Design a character for a story.

 

This is what you need to do....

Think of three people in your life. Give your character the hair and laugh of person 1, the face and bedroom of person 2, and the wardrobe and mannerisms of person 3. This is your new main character. Feel free to give him or her any other characteristics you'd like. Give us an idea of who your character is by describing only the first 60 seconds of the character's day.

Hello Year 6!

I hope you are all keeping safe and well and following the social distancing advice. I know this is a very strange time for you all.  It is important that you keep in touch with each other as much as possible and the class blog is a great way of doing that!  I want to see pictures and posts of all the things you have been doing at home, not just school work but any other things you have been doing to have fun......although of course, I do hope you are working your way through the home learning packs slowly. :) 

I am going to set a daily challenge for you all and would love for you to post pictures of yourself completing this challenge....

Todays challenge is........

Tidy your bedroom!!

Off you go!!!

I miss you all.

World Book Day 2020

Year 6 had a nice relaxing day in their pajamas. They certainly made sure they were comfortable and cosy when it came to their story time in the library.  They enjoyed hot chocolate and marshmallows while listening to a few short stories.  They also put in a brilliant effort with their potatoes dressed up as book characters!  Well done to Denise for winning the prize for Year 6!

Lenten Retreat Day

The whole school enjoyed a wonderful day on Thursday as we welcomed the beginning of Lent with visitors Dan and Emily.  They led a beautiful retreat where we were reminded of the wonderful stories from the bible and how our God is a God who speaks to us.  Year 6 were engaged, respectful and thoughtful throughout the entire day. 

Lenten Retreat Day

ICT Workshop - Social Media & Cyber Bullying

Year 6 enjoyed a very important and serious workshop that dealt with issues regarding the use of social media and online bullying.  They responded really well to the activities and definitely showed an understanding of the dangers of having a presence online.  As a class, we will revisit these issues before the end of the year.  

Happy New Year!

Welcome to Year 6!

Our Class Wish is:

“Aspire not to have more, but to BE more”

 

We talked in Year 6 about all the amazing things we have in our lives and how lucky we are compared to many people in the UK and round the world.

 

One of the children reminded us that there are children in the world (and in the UK) that wake up each day to a very difficult life with little in the way of food, clothing, comfort or indeed - education.

 

We all agreed that we should be grateful for the many ways we have been blessed in our lives and generous in the way we share our possessions, our lives and our time…
