Hello everyone,

If you couldn't make it to our open evening earlier this month, here's the information we went through relating to what is happening this term. If there's anything you want to discuss, please don't hesitate to pop in at the end of the school day or send a message on Class Dojo.

Chemistry with Cabbage

Today we have enjoyed a full day of Science, Chemistry with Cabbage! We have spent the day conducting a range of Science experiments (not all involving cabbage!). It's been a fun filled day, just what we needed and we have been looking forward to this experience since September!

Our Finished Masterpieces

We're so proud of our art work this week. We have created collages using oil pastels, watercolours and monochrome patterns for our contrasting backgrounds, and then added features of our chosen animal. We've really enjoyed the process of this art and hope you are impressed!

Art progress!

This week we have been working on art, linked with both our Science topic and Pathways to Write book 'Island' by Jason Chin. We are proud of our work so far and are excited to show you our progress! Photos of the finished pieces will be shared shortly!

Monday 8th March - Back into the swing of things with Art

Today we returned to school, and had a great time spending time with our peers and teachers! The first day back was a great success and felt like we had never been away. We have started to create some artistic masterpieces and will be sharing the journey and process with you. We hope that you enjoy seeing our journey as much as we are enjoying creating it!

Today we enjoyed out final Fun Friday to celebrate the end of home learning! The children watched their favourite film based on a book, clocked some miles for our school fundraising effort, made junk modelling masterpieces and baked some Easter themed treats (we're very eager in Year 6)! We are now looking forward to being back together on Monday.

Fun Friday - 5th March 2021

Our final World Book Day at LSJ!

We celebrated World Book Day today, albeit differently to previous years! Every class in school read the same book, 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse' by Charlie Mackesy. We then completed activities based on that book, as well as making time to enjoy our own personal favourite books! 

Fun Friday - 12th February

We celebrated Chinese New Year, with the children having the opportunity to practise a range of skills, including cooking, baking, making Chinese lanterns and much more! The children clearly enjoyed the day. Check out Isobelle's impressive skills in the video!


5th February - Fun Friday!

As part of Children's Mental Health Week, and for a change of routine due to the children coping so well and working extremely hard during lockdown, we had our first Fun Friday, involving no Maths or English! The children were encouraged to express themselves through yoga, art and baking, as well as taking some time for themselves by enjoying hot chocolates, stories and films. This was much deserved and well enjoyed by the children - please see the photos below!

The Selfish Giant

We have just finished our writing based on Oscar Wilde's famous 'The Selfish Giant.' The children have produced some absolutely fantastic writing over the past few weeks, while also getting used to working online via Google Classroom. They have adapted extremely well to our current daily routine and should be proud of themselves. 

Our writing unit included focusing on the use of personification, the passive voice and semi-colons to mark boundaries between clauses while studying different parts of the story. Our final piece of the unit was rewriting the story from a different perspective, while incorporating the skills we'd practised. The children really enjoyed this challenge and added their own flairs and writing styles to the traditional story. They all look and sound professional - well done Year 6!
