Year 6 Science – Light

If you can collect your data at home for the above table for next Monday I’d really appreciate it Year 6. The current situation has made it impossible to collect within the school environment. Don’t forget that you’ve chosen three surfaces of your own too. Any questions, please ask. Thank you. Mr Trevor

European Day of Languages

September 26th is European Day of Languages. Many different languages (not just European) are spoken amongst the Woodthorpe community and we would like to recognise this. We invite children to design a speech bubble (no bigger than a5) and fill it with a greeting in a language they know, then bring it into school where we hope to display them.

Please bring any bubbles in by Friday 2nd October, ensuring they are labelled with the child’s name and the language used.

Bike to School Week

Dear parents/carers,

As pupils return to school following lockdown, active travel is more important than ever to help children get to school safely and healthily.

Bike to School Week starts on Monday 28th September. In order to make this a safe initiative in school and ensure we can store children’s bikes each day, we have allocated specific days to classes throughout the week. If your child would prefer to scooter, that’s absolutely fine. Any active travel which does not include bringing the car to school makes a big difference to air pollution and pupils’ safety. Don’t forget your helmet!

  • Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th September
  • Year 3 and Year 4 – Wednesday 30th September and Thursday 1st October
  • Year 5 and Year 6 – Friday 2nd October

The health and wellbeing benefits of children travelling actively to school are well-known, from improved behaviour and concentration, to a stronger sense of independence. In school, children will be completing activities as they learn about positive, safe travel habits and healthy lifestyles.

Get ready for Bike to School Week: 28 Sept – 2 Oct 2020

There is also a photo competition during the Bike To School Week which you can get involved in at home – visit join in with the fun.

Yours sincerely,

Ms L. McGrath

Head Teacher

Bike to School Week is delivered by Sustrans, with support from our partners the Bikeability Trust.

Hello from Miss Ali 😁🇶🇦

Hello year 6! It does feel weird saying year 6 as you’ve always been year 5 to me. How are you all? I hope you’re all good and settling well into school 👍🏼. I really miss you all and I miss everyone at Woodthorpe!

I know you will have a fantastic year ahead of you because you’re an amazing class!

I’ve started work over here in Doha. Schools here are working differently. I have 2 classes of upto 15 children and they come in 2 days each and do the rest online. We start school at 6.45am here 😯 (very early as I have to wake up at 5am) but I’m getting used to it now. The kids finish school at 12.30 and the teachers finish at 2. 30. It definitely is a busy day! Also, we work from Sunday to Thursday, it seems very strange but I’ll get used to it eventually.

It is incredibly hot here!!

Here is a picture of my classroom

Here are a few pictures of places I’ve visited…

I hope you all have a fantastic week! Continue working hard and continue smiling 😁.

Take care 😊

Full Week Complete!

We have had another good week in year 6 and seem to be back into the swing of learning. Our unit of work on Here We Are is now complete, having shared many thoughts on how the world has changed over the past 6 months, and how we can continue to help ourselves, each other and our planet.

Homework books have also come home today, with spellings for the half term (one column to be tested each week) as well as this half term’s homework challenges stuck in. I really look forward to seeing the responses to the tasks!

I shall endeavor to upload some photos next week as I get to grips with this site, and will also add information to the termly outline, timetable and homework tabs.

Have a great weekend.

Miss E
