Welcome to Bentinck Primary & Nursery School. Together we make a difference.

Class 6

Welcome to Class 6

Monday 19th July

Good morning Class 6. Sorry you're having to isolate, AGAIN!

But don't worry, we should be able to cram in all of the fun things we've talked about on the Monday and Tuesday of next week when you're back at school.

In case you weren't here on Friday when I gave out the letters, our water fight and graduation are both happening on Monday 26th July. The water fight will take place during the school day, and you will need to bring a towel and a complete change of clothes (including underwear and shoes) in a bag. You can also bring any water squirting toys you have at home (but not water balloons please as they are really bad for the environment.)

The graduation will take place after school, at 4pm on the field. You can either go home to change, and then return with your family or, if you live further away from the school, you can stay behind and bring some clothes to change into, and your family can meet you at school at 4pm. Families are invited to bring their own chairs / picnic blankets to sit on, if possible. During the graduation we will give out the end of year awards, plus the leavers' hoodies, and we will hopefully have the chance to sing some of the songs that were going to be part of our End of Year Performance. We will then celebrate with some takeaway pizza.

On the Tuesday we will have a leaving celebration in class during the school day, with games and food. If you would like to bring in some food to share, please bring in packaged items like crisps or chocolate bars in multipacks.

While I'm at home I'll spend some time making a booklet with some photographs and messages in it for you to take home on your last day. I'll leave some space at the back so you can sign each other's. If any of those of you that weren't here on Friday would like to write a message to your friends to be included in the booklet, please email me at:

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

There are some work packs for you at school, and Mrs Nunez will contact families today about how and when these can be collected. Happy Eid for tomorrow for those of you who are celebrating! smiley

Monday 5th July

Class 6 I'm so sorry that you're having to miss some more school at this late stage in the term, and that we won't get to go on our Adventure Day trip.

Mrs Nunez will contact your families soon about when to collect the emergency work packs. In the meantime, you can always go on TT Rockstars or Spelling Shed, or find activities in the Additional Activities folder on our page.

Hopefully we can fit in as many fun things as possible when you come back, including a party and our water fight! We will also do everything that we can to make sure that our performance can go ahead in some form, so keep practising your words and the songs.

Email me at emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk if you have any questions, or just want to say hello.

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Burton smiley

Tuesday 6th April

Hi Class 6, I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend and didn't eat too many chocolate eggs!

Just a reminder that your English homework this holiday is to read as much as possible - this could be your reading book, a newspaper / magazine (in print or online) or any book you have at home. Then I'd love you to write me a book review on the template I've given you. I'm hoping to put the best ones in a special folder in the reading room at school, and you can earn a house point for your house if yours is chosen to go in there, so please try your best!

If you are in my Triangles maths group you have been given an arithemtic test to help you to complete an arithmetic skills audit. After you have completed as much of the test as you can independently, you can find the answers inside the Maths Online Learning folder at the top of our class page.

Remember that the first two days are INSET days, so your homework will be due on the first day you're back in school - Wednesday 21st April. I hope you all have a lovely break - see you all soon. Mrs Burton laugh

Friday 5th March

Good morning Class 6. I hope you’ve all had a good week – your last week of learning at home! On Monday we are all back in school, so you need to be lined up in our usual spot ready to come into class at 9.15am (we’re carrying on with the staggered start times of 9am for Early Years and KS1 and 9.15 for KS2). All of our routines are going to be the same as they were before Christmas, so if you have a younger sibling in Early Years or KS1 you can arrive with them at 9am and then wait under the shelter, like you did last term. All of our social distancing, ventilation and handwashing routines are also going to stay in place, because it’s still very important to do everything we can to keep each other safe from COVID19.

The key thing you need to remember on Monday is to bring all of your equipment back into school (your pen, pencil, pencil crayons, pencil sharpener, reading book and any other school equipment you have at home). You have a brand new equipment wallet (very smart and stripy) waiting for you in the classroom so please make sure you don’t leave it empty!

It’s also very important that you bring this week’s completed work in with you to be added to your lockdown folder. I’m going to give a double house point to everybody who brings both of these things in, so let’s see who can do really well for their house by being super organised.

These children have all earned a double house point this week by practising their number skills on TT Rockstars and Numbots:

Alaa, Mariya, DeFan, Leighton, Abdullah and Anaya - WELL DONE!

These children have earned a double house point and some honeypot rewards by practising their spellings on Spelling Shed:

Kunle, DeFan, Meerab, Mahira, Aleena, Abdullah and Anaya – WELL DONE!

Have a brilliant weekend, I’m looking forward to seeing you all back in the classroom on Monday. We have some lovely creative activities lined up to help us all to settle back in – I can’t wait!

Stay safe and keep smiling

​​​​​​UPDATE - Tuesday 2nd March 

Just a reminder that David Walliams's AMAAAAZING Assembly for World Book Day is TODAY (Tuesday) even though World Book Day is on Thursday!

It should be a lot of fun, so if you'd like to join in with the live stream then click the link below.

AMAAAAAZING ASSEMBLY FOR WORLD BOOK DAY

Join DAVID WALLIAMS for his AMAAAAAZING ASSEMBLY FOR WORLD BOOK DAY!

Monday 1st March

Good morning Class 6. It’s the first day of a new month, and it’s certainly felt like Spring is on the way this weekend hasn’t it? I hope you all managed to get out and enjoy the lovely sunshine.

It’s also the first day of our LAST WEEK of online learning, before we all get to be together in the classroom again next Monday laugh

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all again, and we have lots of lovely creative activities planned for the first week back which I’m sure are going to be lots of fun. Remember we’re also going to find some time when you come back to look through your lockdown work together, so make sure you keep on working hard at home this week to make sure we have lots to celebrate when you come back.

You need to come into school at the usual time of 9.30 to 10.30 this morning to collect your final pack, and drop off last week’s work. Remember you only need to send back the work sheets you have completed, not all of the instructions sheets and letters, timetables etc. – these can be recycled at home when you have finished with them.

Mrs Nunez has been busy marking last week’s work and completing your feedback sheets – I hope you have given her lots of positive things to say. I know she was so pleased with someone’s amazing effort that she rang them up to tell them – well done Ethan!

On Thursday this week it’s World Book Day. You will get your book voucher with your work pack on Monday and you can swap this for a book at your local supermarket or book shop. There are also lots of fun activities you can join in with by clicking the link on the main children’s page or in Thursday’s English folder on the class page of our website. You can earn house points for joining in, so try to do as many as you can!

Have a great week, remember to email me if you have any problems or aren’t sure what to do, or just to let me know how you’re getting on.

My email address is

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

Friday 26th February

Good morning Class 6. I hope everyone’s had a good week. Did you see on Monday that we are definitely coming back to school on March 8th, which means we only have one more week of learning at home to go! That means you have one more week to make sure that you have some lockdown work to be proud of when we come back, so make sure that you are trying your best.

WELL DONE to Kunle, Geo, Meerab, Anaya and Ithar, who have all been practising their spellings regularly on Spelling Shed. I have discovered this week how to give rewards online, so you have all earned some of those as well as house points – congratulations!laugh

And WELL DONE to Alaa, Kunle, DeFan, Mahira, Leighton, Geo, Ithar, Alan and Anaya, who have all earned a double house point for their house by playing on TTRockstars and Numbots this week. Keep up the good work!

I have to say a special WELL DONE and thank you to Raees, who took part in  the Into University creative work shop at half term and earned 5 house points for Farah. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the fun things you did when you come back to school. Well done also to Kyei, Abdullah and Mahira who have earned house points for emailing me this week to let me know how they are getting on. Mahira has also earned a double house point for being the first person in class to finish her Indigo dot card – wow!

All of that hard work means that King have moved up to second place in our class house point totals - only 4 points behind Farah. I wonder if we could have a different winner this term in our class - come on King!

It’s a lovely sunny day, so I hope you all get to spend some time outside – I’m looking forward to going out for a walk with our puppy on the park later. Have a lovely weekend, I’m looking forward to seeing you all soon.

This week's house points

Monday 22nd February

Good morning Class 6. I hope you all had a good half term and got to have some fun away from your screens. Let me know if you took part in the Into University Creative Workshop – I’d love to see any art work you made and I think you have definitely earned some house points for taking part.

The government are due to announce today when you’re coming back to school, and it’s looking like it’s going to be Monday March 8th, which just gives us two more weeks of remote learning. We’ll obviously let your parents know what’s happening once it’s been confirmed.

I won’t be there when you pick up your work packs this morning unfortunately, as I have to have a steroid injection in my arm (the one I injured before Christmas doing too much Joe Wicks!) Miss Hodgson and Mrs Nunez will be around though to answer any questions you have, and remember you can still contact me by email or by phone. I won’t be able to come in to school for two weeks after the injection, as the steroids supress your immune system which puts you at a higher risk of catching the coronavirus. Mrs Nunez has very kindly offered to mark your work packs and fill out your feedback forms for the next two weeks though, so I’m sure you’ll want to show her your very best work!

Don’t forget to let Miss Hodgson know if you’ve finished one of your dot card colours – we have lots of delicious chocolate treats waiting for you.laugh

Thanks again to everyone who’s doing their best to keep learning at home. Remember to always read the written instructions carefully before you complete your work, and if you’re still stuck, please get in touch so I can help you. My email address is:

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

Keep on trying hard – we’re nearly there!

Keep smiling and stay safe, Mrs Burton smiley

Friday 12th February

Good morning Class 6. Happy Chinese New Year! (Maybe you heard some fireworks last night? We did.) This year is the year of the Ox. Do any of you know your birth animal? You may not be surprised to hear that I’m a dragon! Today is also the last day of the half term, which means that next week you get the week off. laugh I know most things are closed, but I hope you still get to have some fun playing outside and going to your local parks.

If any of you are looking for something to do at half term, the team at Into University have been in touch to invite you to a virtual workshop they’re running every morning. The theme is cultural identity and there will be lots of creative activities for you to join in with at home. It’s free to attend, but you will need to have access to the internet as it’s happening online. I’ll put a link to the invitation at the bottom of this message. I’ve also emailed this to those of you I have an email address for. Try to get involved if you can, it sounds like fun!

I’d like to say a big THANK YOU and WELL DONE to everyone who tried hard with their work this week and completed the maths AND English lessons. Some of you have made big improvements to your work packs, which is great. I knew you could do it! I’ve attached lots of dots to your feedback forms to say well done, so please let me know on Monday 22nd (after half term) if you’ve finished a colour, and I’ll have a treat for you.

These children have all earned a house point for playing on TT Rockstars and Numbots this week – well done!

Mahira, Leighton, Abdullah, Geo, Alaa, Ithar, Mariya, Anaya, Raees, Ethan, Ayokunle, Sara and DeFan

These children have all earned a house point for practising their spellings on Spelling Shed this week (I’m sure they are going to ace their spelling tests when we get back – well done!)

Armando, Mariya, Leighton, Geo, Ayokunle, Ithar, Kyei, Meerab, Anaya and DeFan

Leighton and Geo have also been working hard at school this week to earn house points for Malala and King – well done boys. Geo and his family are moving back to Indonesia soon, and I know we will all miss him LOTS. If you would like to make a card or send a message to Geo and don’t have his contact details, then you are welcome to send them to me, or give them in on Monday 22nd after half term, and I’ll pass them on.

Have a lovely half term, stay safe and keep smiling

Into University Half Term Virtual Workshop Invite

This Week's House Points

Monday 8th February

Good morning Class 6. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today it’s that time again! Please come to collect your new work pack from the playground between 9.30 and 10.20am. Remember you also need to bring your completed work pack from last week. I’m looking forward to seeing you and your parents and having a chance to catch up and say hello laugh.

If you’ve read Friday’s update you will have seen that some of you are doing an amazing job – you’re having a go at every lesson to the best of your ability and handing in your completed work on time. I want to say a huge THANK YOU again to children and families who are working hard at home to make sure that you are carrying on with your education. This is really going to benefit you when we come back to school as it will mean you are not behind with your work. I’m also going to make sure that those of you who have tried your hardest have some kind of reward when we come back to school, because I have been so impressed with your work and you have definitely earned a treat!

Unfortunately, there are still some children in our class who are not completing their work packs to the best of their ability. I know it’s difficult being stuck at home BUT I really need you to make sure you are having a go at your lessons every day. Even though we can’t be physically together in the classroom at the moment, school hasn’t stopped! All of the teachers are working hard to create work packs for you that have online videos and activities to support those of you who have access to the internet, and extra instructions and worksheets for those of you who don’t.

All of the work you complete and hand in during this lockdown is being kept in a file at school, and when you come back we are going to go through your work together. I know some of you will be very proud when we look through what you have done, and currently, some of you won’t be.

If you are ever struggling to complete the work at home, the first thing to do is to make sure you have read the instructions carefully, and watched any online learning videos if possible. If you are still stuck, please email me at emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

If you are not able to email me, you can always ring the school (during school hours!) and if I can I will come and talk to you, otherwise I will ring you back.

I’m also going to have some extra copies of the easier work packs available today for anybody who is genuinely struggling to understand and access the work that they have.

Please try to make sure you have some work to be proud of in your lockdown folder. Also, please be aware that if you have lots of work missing when we come back to school you will need to spend some of your free time catching up and completing the work you have missed.

You have at least 3 weeks left of working at home, so please use the time wisely and make sure you have some work to be proud of when you come back to school!

Stay safe and keep smiling

Mrs Burton smiley

Safer Internet Day

This Tuesday is Safer Internet Day and the theme is Trust. In your pack you will find some activities that will help you to learn how to check whether information and content that you come across online is reliable.

Here are the links to the online assembly and videos that will help you to complete the activities in your pack.

Friday 5th February

Good morning Class 6. Wow, this week seemed to go really quickly. I can’t believe we’ve been working at home for 5 weeks now! Just one more week to go until half term, and then if it’s safe the government are hoping to get you all back into school at some point in March.

I’m glad January’s over, aren’t you? Now it’s February it’s going to start staying lighter for a little longer in the evenings, which will hopefully give everyone a chance to spend a bit more time out in the fresh air.

I’d like to say another huge WELL DONE and THANK YOU to those of you who are trying your hardest to carry on with your education at home. It’s really important that you do this - remember it’s YOUR education, and you want to be as ready as you can be for secondary school in September.

These children have all earned a double house point for playing on TT Rockstars or Numbots this week:

Kunle, Robert, Sara, Mahira, Leighton, Abdullah, Aleena, Ithar and Alan – well done!

These children have all earned a double house point for practising their spellings on Spelling Shed this week:

Mahira, Aleena, Ithar, Abeer, Kunle and Meerab – well done!

I have to give a special mention to Raees, Geo, Mahira, DeFan, Sara, Alan and Mariya, who made me smile with the amount of effort they put into their work packs this week (and every week!) You have each earned 5 extra house points for your house, as well as lots of dots for yourselves.

And an EXTRA SPECIAL mention has to go to Abeer, who is producing a phenomenal amount of work at home, and putting so much effort and enthusiasm into everything he does. Abeer you have really risen to the occasion, and I am so proud of you – I hope you’re feeling very proud of yourself too – well done!

If you are ever stuck or not sure what to do, read the instructions carefully first. If you’re still not sure, you can email me at:

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

or even call the school if you’re not sure how to do that, but you mustn’t just give up and not do any work. Just like going to school (in normal times) is not a choice, doing this work is not a choice, and you have to try your absolute best to complete as much as you can – I know you can do it!

This week's house points

Children's Mental Health Week

This week is children's mental health week. Being stuck at home can be really difficult - we all miss being able to see our friends and going out to do all of the things we usually enjoy.

If you're finding it all a bit stressful, it can help to talk to family and friends. (And remember, if you have a problem that is worrying you that you don't know how to deal with, you can always contact me or other teachers at school for help and advice.)

It's also great to take a break!

Click on the Magical Minds icon at the top of the page for some fun yoga activities and online mindfulness colouring.

Let me know if you have any other favourite ways to relax and maybe I can add them to our page.

Take care of yourselves

Monday 1st February

Good morning Class 6. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. This morning we are giving out your work packs in the playground as usual, so please make sure that you or someone in your family comes to collect it between 9.30 and 10.20 am. Because this is the pack that didn't get handed out last week, the dates on the worksheets will be last week's dates. Hopefully this won't be a problem, you will just need to do Monday's work on Monday, Tuesday's work on Tuesday etc., and ignore the dates on the sheets. I'll explain this to you again when I give you the pack, please ask me if you're not sure what to do.

You also need to bring the work pack you have at home back in for me to mark please.

You don’t need to bring back all of the instruction sheets, letters, timetables etc. – these can go in the recycling bin at home when you have finished with them. Please just clip together all of the work you have completed, plus the pupil feedback form that you and your parents have filled in, and make sure your name is on your work. It can then be easily dropped into the quarantine box.

Thank you, I'm looking forward to seeing you in the playground tomorrow!

Mrs Burton laugh

 

Friday 29th January

Good morning Class 6. Sorry this message is a little late, but our dog just jumped onto my laptop and somehow cancelled everything I had written earlier! (Lesson - puppies and computers don't mix)

Can I say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has been working hard at home this week. I know it's been a funny old week with you not being able to collect your new paper packs so well done to those of you who showed lots of determination and resilience and kept on trying your absolute best - I'm very proud of you.

You've now had two whole weeks to complete the activities in your paper packs, so please make sure that you have tried your hardest with them and have had a go at as much of the work as possible. I'm looking forward to seeing them (and some of you!) on Monday morning.

I'm hoping some more of you are going to enter the Mini Police competition set by Lucy (Miss Hodgson has posted details further down our page, and you should have had the same information in your paper pack last week). Abeer has earned a whopping 5 house points for Farah with his fabulous entry, which I'll post below - well done Abeer.

There's also the Big Garden Birdwatch event happening this weekend (you can find the details below). It would be great if some of you could count, or draw, the birds in your garden or an outdoor space and put any work in your pack to be handed in on Monday.

Well done to Raees, Mariya, Abeer and Ithar who have all earned a double house point by playing on Spelling Shed this week, and to Mariya, Arooj, Raees, Abeer, Kunle, Robert, Sara, DeFan, Mahira, Leighton, Aleena and Ithar who have earned a double house point for playing on TT Rockstars and Numbots. These games will really help to improve your spelling skills and number fluency, so try to play them as often as you can.

Please try to email me at least once a week to let me know how you are getting on. Abeer, DeFan and Raees are really good at doing this and have earned lots of house points for their houses - well done boys!

Did you see I've added an Additional Learning Activities folder to our class page? (It has a sunflower icon.) There are lots of suggested activities in there that you can complete to earn dots and house points (you can give in anything you do with your pack on Monday). There are also lots of links to learning games you can play online.

Thanks for everything you are doing, try to keep as busy, and as active as you can. The government are hoping we will be back at school by 8th March (if the infection rate is down and it's safe) so hopefully it won't be too long before we can all be back together in the classroom again.

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Burton smiley

Abeer's fabulous Mini Police competition entry

The Big Garden Birdwatch is a national bird survey happening this weekend.

The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) is asking participants to spend one hour, between 29th – 31st January, watching the birds which land in their garden or outdoor space. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the world’s largest wildlife project, aimed at better protecting the future of our beautiful British birds!

 

The PDF below explains how to get involved. Follow the RSPB link for more information and lots of great bird-related activities, such as how to make a simple birdfeeder, how to take great wildlife photos and you can even take a quiz to find out which garden bird you are most like!

UPDATE - Wednesday 27th January

Good morning Class 6. I hope you've had lots of fun in the snow over the last few days. A decision has been made to keep this week's work packs for next week, to be collected at the usual time on Monday 1st February.

I'd like to say a HUGE well done and thank you to those of you who have been accessing the digital versions of the worksheets on the website - I'm very impressed at how hard you are working and if you have emailed me to let me know how you are getting on you have earned lots of dots and house points - great work!

I'm not going to put the digital versions of the worksheets on the site today, as they are now being saved for next week. I will pop something extra in your work pack to keep you busy on Monday and Tuesday next week if you are one of the children who have already completed and sent me that work.

For your home learning for the rest of this week, I'd like you to have a go at some of the Oak Academy online lessons. These can be watched on any device that can access the internet - a smart phone, tablet, games console, laptop or PC. No worksheets are required as the questions appear on the screen, so you will just need a pen or pencil and some paper to answer them, and you should hopefully have that equipment at home. (Tip - try writing on the back of one of the sheets in last week's work pack if you have run out of paper.)

I'll put links to the lessons in the English and Maths online learning folders on our class page (like the links to our usual work).

If you are not able to access the Oak Academy lessons, remember it's always useful to spend some time on TT Rockstars, Numbots and Spelling Shed. There are lots of great learning videos and games on BBC Bitesize and there are lessons for primary age children being broadcast every day during school time on CBBC.

Please email me if you have any questions or are not sure what to do. My email address is:

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

PS: I'm looking forward to seeing the work packs you have at home handed in on Monday - you will have had these at home for TWO weeks by then so you should have had lots of time to do your most amazing work!

UPDATE - Monday 25th January

School will be CLOSED to all pupils today due to the hazardous conditions on the roads. 

We will let you know by text message and via the website when school can be safely open for work packs to be collected.

I will put digital versions of today's worksheets on the online learning pages for those who can access them. If you can't access the worksheets, remember there are learning programmes being broadcast throughout the school day on CBBC. 

If you haven't built a snowman yet, now is a good time to have a go! I'd love to see some drawings or photographs of your snowmen to put on the webpage. I'll try to post some photos of our puppy, Luna, having fun in the snow later too.

Or why not see how many activities you can complete on the Snowy Day Bingo sheet below?

Thank you, I hope everyone is enjoying the snow while it's here!

Snowy Day Bingo

Snowy Dog

Monday 25th January

Good morning Class 6! Jack and Lily (and my husband) were VERY excited by the snow this weekend - I hope you all got the chance to get out and have some fun in it too. 

I've totalled up the house points for this half term so far, and it's all very close, but well done to King for being that little bit out in the lead. I'll post a picture of the table below.

As well as earning house points for handing your work pack in, remember you can earn some for emailing me. It's been great to hear from Abeer, DeFan and Geo (thanks boys!) but I'd love to hear from some more of you. I'll give 5 house points to anyone who emails me this week to let me know how they're doing with their work, ask me a question or just say hello.

It was great to see that lots of you have been improving your maths skills on TT Rockstars and Numbots - Ithar, Alan, Kyei, Geo, Aleena, Leighton, Mahira, Michael, Logan, DeFan, Robert, Sara, Kunle, Abeer, Raees, Arooj, Mariya and Alaa have each earned a double housepoint for playing some games in the last fortnight.

Arooj, Kunle, Meerab, Leighton, Mahira, Aleena and Ithar have also each earned a double house point for playing on Spelling Shed this week - well done! I'm going to see if I can figure out how to set it up so you can take your weekly spelling test online (I think I might need to ask Miss Chambers!) I'll let you know if it's working, and then that will be another way to earn dots and house points for great scores.

Don't forget to come and drop off last week's work pack and collect your new one between 10 and 10.20 am on the playground this morning - let's hope we can all make it in through the snow! 

I'm looking forward to seeing you then - take care and stay safe.

This Week's House Points

Friday 22nd January

Good morning Class 6, I hope everyone is having a good week. I want to say a big THANK YOU and WELL DONE to everyone who completed and returned their work packs on Monday - it was great to see most of you bring something back and I have given out lots of dots and positive feedback for you to collect next Monday. Everyone who handed their pack in or emailed me can have a house point, and I'll total them up and then get them onto our page on Monday.

I'd like to say a special well done to DeFan, Abeer, Mahira and Aleena, who completed every activity every day. They've earned lots of dots and they can also have a double house point.

I would really love it if some of you could complete the poetry challenge that we set in this week's English work pack too - you just need to film yourself reciting some (or all) of a poem like Miss Hodgson and I did for the website. 

Remember to email me if you have any questions or anything you would like to share. My email address is:

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

Have a lovely weekend, try and get out in the fresh air if you can.

Mrs Burton smiley

 

Monday 18th January

Good morning Class 6. I hope you all had a good weekend and are looking forward to week 2 of our online learning!

Did you see the information about the Mini Police competition on our page? Try to enter if you get a chance, because it would be really special to see one of YOUR drawings on an enormous billboard in Hyson Green. I've included your pencil crayons and a sharpener from school in your pack this week so you can complete an Islamic art activity, so everyone will have some colours to use for the competition too.

Please make sure that you look after your pencil crayons, because you will need to bring them back into school when we come back.

Also in your pack this week is your dot card and, if you handed in some great work last week, some dots. This is so you can carry on collecting dots at home. If you finish the next colour section then let me know, so I can send you a sweet treat with your next pack. You can do this by emailing me at:

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk

Don't forget you can also email me with any questions you have about your work, or just to say hello and tell me how you're getting on.

I was really impressed by lots of the work that was handed in last week, well done! It's great to see that so many of you have exactly the right attitude and are working hard to keep learning at home.

Also included in your pack this week is a suggested timetable. This is to show you how you can fit in your 4 hours of schooling a day, which is what you should be aiming for. Don't worry if you need to swap any of the activities around or do them at different times, but do try to make sure you complete as much as possible please.

Have a great week, I'll post again on Friday and let you know if anyone has earned a double housepoint and 5 dots for completing the poetry challenge that you'll find in Wednesday's English lesson. Good luck!

Calling all Mini Police! A special assignment - with an epic prize!

Monday 11th January

Good morning Class 6, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Welcome to week one of our online learning. This week, I'll be adding links to learning videos and games on our class page every day. These will help you to complete the work in your paper pack that you need to collect from school every Monday morning between 10 and 10.20am. If you have a younger brother or sister in a KS1 or EYFS class, your parent is welcome to collect your work pack when they come to collect theirs, between 9.30 and 10am.

Don't forget to bring last week's work back when you come to collect your new pack, as I will be marking it and giving out dots and house points for good work. You can add your dots to your dot card at home (I'll include it in next week's pack) and when you have completed your next colour I'll send you a sweet treat. laugh

In your work pack this week you will find worksheets and instructions for an English and Maths lesson every day. If you click on the English or Maths Online Learning star above this message and then click on your group (in your work pack it will tell you if you are in group 1,2,3 or 4 for English and Maths) you will find links to the White Rose learning videos (for maths) and links to YouTube videos and BBC Bitesize videos and learning games that will help you with your English. 

Teachers are busy getting some topic work for you to do with your packs next week, but if you would like something extra to do this week then try following the links to the BBC Bitesize and Oak Academy topic lessons that I will post below.

I hope that all makes sense, please email me at

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk 

if you are not sure what to do or if you get stuck with any of the work.

I hope everybody has a good week and stays safe, don't forget to get outdoors for some exercise and fresh air if you can!

Good morning Class 6 - I hope you all had a good holiday and you and your families are keeping safe. Happy New Year! Let's hope 2021 starts to get better soon.

As you will have seen in the news, the country is now in another full lockdown, which means we won't be able to learn in the classroom this half term. BUT this doesn't mean we won't be learning at all!!

The teachers are busy in school today getting paper based work packs ready for you to collect tomorrow. We will also be telephoning as many of your parents as possible to check whether you are able to access the internet at home. 

Please ask your parents to answer this call if possible, it's important that we speak to them.

Some of you were brilliant at checking the web page and keeping in touch last year. If any of you read this today and then send me an email to 

emily.burton@bentinck.nottingham.sch.uk 

you can earn 5 house points for your house - so email me if you can please so I know how to get in touch with you.

We will be expecting work we set this lockdown to be returned to school each week so it can be marked, and you can earn lots of house points for trying your best at home. 

We will have a printed work pack ready for you or your parents to collect at 10 - 10.30am tomorrow morning. Please come to the MUGA via the usual gate to collect this.

Next week we will be moving to more structured online learning for children who are able to access the internet, but we will continue making the printed work packs for everyone that needs them. Hopefully we can all work together to have fun, learn and keep busy during lockdown. Take care, I'm looking forward to seeing lots of you tomorrow.

We thought of a set of class rules together that would help everyone to keep safe and achieve their best. We each signed a copy of the rules to show that we are serious about keeping them!

This half term, we have based a lot of our work around the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.

It celebrates how amazing our planet is and how lucky we are to be here, together, at this time.

Here are some poems we wrote to celebrate our favourite places.

A Message From Mrs Holt

October whole school newsletter

As the children are not in school and have not received the paper copy of our newsletter, please find it here on your class page. 

 

Into University

We have our Into University FOCUS week scheduled for the first week back after half term (beginning Monday 3rd November).

If there are any changes to this due to unforseen circumstances (a change in lockdown rules for example) I will let you know as soon as possible, but at the moment I am very much hoping it will go ahead as it is an amazing opportunity for the class.

Our themes this year are art and music, and we will be painting, puppet making and having an African drumming workshop. All of the activities will take place at The Vine Centre, and Covid 19 safety procedures will be followed at all times.

If your child hasn't returned a completed permission form yet (and we are still waiting for 8) please could they bring it with them on Monday 3rd. They will also need to bring a packed lunch to school with them on this day. 

Starting on Thursday 13th November, staff from The Great Project will be visiting Class 6 on a Thursday afternoon for four weeks. This is an opportunity for children to explore how to create healthy, happy and trusting relationships with others.
