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:
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!
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
