Attention all Year 6 boys who will be attending Fulham College Boys School next year! There is an open evening at the school on Wednesday 6th March, that’s THIS WEEK. The evening starts at 5:30pm and will be a great opportunity for you to see the school again, meet some of the staff and ask any questions you may have. Hello 6F, I hope you are all enjoying your half term so far! When you come back, we are going to move on to changing the Harry Potter story. So, I would like you to think of some changes which we could make for our class version. Use the examples below to help you complete the grid. See you on Monday. Miss Dunstan Hello 6J, Well done for practising Harry Potter and the Forbidden Forest, you are learning the story incredibly quickly! Over the half term, finish drawing your storymap. Then you will be ready to write our own version of the story when you come back to school! Don’t forget to personalise the front cover of your writer’s journal with pictures, drawings and your name. Have a nice holiday! Miss Smith Year 6 were super busy last week! We have been getting stuck into our science based topic – ‘Discoveries that Changed the World.’ In 6J we have been exploring circuits, forces and magnetism. We also had a visitor from the Urban Studies Centre, who will be working with us on a mini project over the next few weeks. The project will be based on the history of the local area and the school. We have already found out lots of interesting facts! We also looked at old photographs of the local area. Some things have changed a lot but some bit at all. Can anyone from 6J remember one of the things that have changed? Stayed the same? We are looking forward to our local area walk on Thursday where we will be meeting one of the ‘friends of Brompton cemetery’ for a history talk! Hello year 6, As you will have seen school is closed tomorrow. Unfortunately 6F this means our trip will be cancelled. I’ll try to reschedule it for another time. Meanwhile, here is some more work to keep you busy! Maths: Complete the section called ‘Handling Data’ in the CGP book Science: Choose another section of the CGP book and write another 10 questions to go with your quiz Literacy: Imagine you are a journalist for the Hammersmith and Fulham chronicle and write a newspaper article about the closure of the school. Hopefully we will see you on Friday but keep checking the blog and website for information! On Tuesday, 6J went on a trip to the Science Museum in South Kensington. We explored the galleries and exhibitions and especially enjoyed the interactive activities in the LaunchPad! What was your favourite part of the day? Which exhibition did you enjoy the most? What new information did you learn? Last week in 6J, we designed and made our own umbrellas. We thought carefully about the design and pattern but also about the materials we used. As you can see, we used lots of masking tape to keep them together. We tested them out in the playground! What do you think? The view from Year 6 today! Look at our amazing Russian dolls! This afternoon year 6 took part in a workshop called ‘Wasted’ which taught us all about the effects of drugs. Here is the link to the website they suggested which has lots of more information and activities: http://www.talktofrank.com/ Here are the words to our song for you to practice: Our Children’s Leadership team would like us to find out about the history of our school. Here is a link to a wallwisher page where you can post your information or questions: http://wallwisher.com/wall/i1kt6r7gug Have look at the fantastic pictures we have been doing in Art! Hello Year 6, thanks to those who have poster on the Wallwisher wall about Medical Breakthroughs they have found out about. Please keep adding to the wall – 6J it would be great if you could comment too! Here is the link again: http://wallwisher.com/wall/d2izul6tfq Have a great weekend! Hello 6F, here is the url address for the wallwisher wall I created today where you can post information about any medical breakthroughs you know of: http://wallwisher.com/wall/d2izul6tfq This afternoon we logged onto mathletics.co.uk and played real-time maths games against children all over the world. We could choose to answers questions from Level 1- 5. Level 5 was the hardest but its where we could get the most points! The competition is open until 12 tonight so some of us will be logging in at home to try and get more coins. ; ; ;

hg ; This week we focused on making a book entitled ‘The Wonders of London.’ We will be sending our book to South City International School in India. They are also in the process of making a similar book to send to us all about where they live and go to school. We included lots of information about London; facts about important people, important places, the royal family, festivals and celebrations as well as pictures from out trip to Central London. Check out the South City International School website: http://www.southcityinternationalschool.com/inner.html On Friday Miss Jackson set us the task of making chocolate buttons from a bar of chocolate. We had to work together to think of ways to melt the chocolate and to make button shapes. We had great fun! Here is the half term homework. We hope you have a good break; see you in a week’s time! Despite the rain we still had a fantastic day exploring London! We had an amazing time on our treasure hunt around Westminster today! Here are a couple of photos to show you where we went! We made posters explaining the properties of a square based pyramid and a cuboid. We went to Years 1,2 and 3 to share our posters and information. They learned new words like vertices. Have a go at some of these. Can you believe that Mrs Thompson just solved the pyramid challenge. She won’t tell me how she did it and has left me to figure it out over the weekend. Don’t forget 6J, I need your help! Miss Jackson needs your help! Yesterday we had a maths challenge morning. Some of the challenges were quite tricky and some were a bit easier. Miss Jackson tried her best to complete the pyramid challenge using unifix cubes. Unfortunately, even after half an hour trying, she was unable to build the pyramid using the shapes. The cubes are now on her desk and in her spare time she is still trying. If you have any cubes or building blocks at home, have a go at building the shapes and making the pyramid. Miss Jackson will be very grateful for any advice or assistance that you can provide! Today we were learning how to say the names of our family members in French. Can you tell who is who?! Here are our videos about chunking.
I really hope you are all enjoying your holidays; I can’t believe that we have only a week and a bit left! I wouldn’t want you get bored in the last week of your summer so here is some homework to get your brains warmed up for September: 1. Practice all your times tables – we will be having a test in the first week back. 2. Write a story – this can be about anything you like. Perhaps you could base it on something you have done in the holidays? Or maybe a story with an Olympic theme? It can be any length you want but make sure it has all the features of a story including a clear beginning, build up, middle, resolution and ending. Try to include as much interesting and descriptive vocabulary as you can. 3. Find out some facts about the River Thames – as part of our topic next half term we will be talking about rivers and coasts. Any facts you find out you can write on the blog or on a fact sheet of your own. You don’t have to do it all but it would be a brilliant start to the year if you can do as much as possible. Enjoy the final part of your holidays and I look forward to seeing you all back on 5th September! Miss F ;

So far this term, I have awarded almost 1000 house points to members of 6C who have been on the MLE and answered brain teasers on the chat page…have you had a go yet?
Hello Year 6!
I feel like I haven’t written on the blog for such a long time. Hope you all had a great week, last week. As you will see on the home page of the blog I have updated the post regarding newsletters and a great new website.
6D I am back this week and as I said previously the hard work and concentration is now needed more than ever. Though I know you can do this. As I wasn’t in Friday, you haven’t had homework in a physical sesne, but I did talk to you about ensuring you practised things such as spellings and timestables, these are all things you can do on your own. I am now attaching the link to the sheet of spellings so you can have this online too! I will also provide a link to it on the MLE.
See you tomorrow.
Are you sad the snow has melted? To cheer you up, I have put some lovely new pictures (of you making Christmas decorations) on the MLE. They are in two separate places, so you will have to look around to find them!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, see you on Monday,
I hope you enjoyed your extra day off school and used it to do some fabulous homework for me
Don’t forget the homework is always on the MLE now, not here.
I am really looking forward to this week because we are going to be doing some fun activities!
See you on Monday,
Don’t forget to check the MLE for your homework and remember, there is a forum on the homework section of 6C’s room where you need to leave a comment! See you tomorrow, Mrs Couch
Olympics Day – Ancient Greece
Your homework is to have a good look around the MLE and try out some of the games on the maths page. There is a forum in the homework section where you can tell the rest of the class about your favourite websites for games.
Remember you should also be reading a news article in a paper or listening to one on TV or the radio which you will be able to talk about on Monday.
Just like 6D, you will have a random spelling test on Wednesday – the words could come from any of the tests you have had so far, so go back on Spelling City and practise!
Hello 6D – your homework this week is to complete as much of the measures sheet as you can. Also, practise ALL of your previous spellings, as you will have a random spelling test on Wednesday. Please also check the MLE to find some revision sheets for English, Maths & Science. Use the game below to help with your homework.
Happy Halloween 6C!
Just a quick reminder: don’t forget a warm coat for our trip tomorrow and REMEMBER YOUR PERMISSION SLIPS PLEASE!!
Have a look at T’Shane’s finished Prezi on Ancient Greece
Hello 6D, just to remind you that your homework is on the MLE (a link to this is available on the left hand side) Hope your have a great holiday. . .
Hello 6C – enjoy your week off school!
Here is your homework: A) Please learn these spellings for a test on Tuesday: Group 1 Group 2 B) Fill in the diary sheet every day with a short account of what you did during half term. Try to write events down in the order that they happen. C) Practise all your times tables every day, ready for a test next week. D) Complete the maths sheet – Please try your best, even if you find it difficult. The tips on the back of the sheet should help you! E) Design a shield for a soldier of Sparta or Athens – You may want to research the symbols and logos used by each city state before you start. Remember the kinds of colours the Ancient Greeks had available and remember there was no TV, internet, electricity or anything like a car or bus in 3000 BC!
PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO BRING BACK YOUR TRIP SLIPS ON MONDAY
Have a fun Halloween, see you on the 1st of November.
6C – Yipee! I have just found this spooky Halloween game. Type the spellings as fast as you can to kill the ghosts before they get you!
You’ll have to be fast – good luck!
Hello 6C – Happy weekend!
Here is your homework: 1. Your spellings are online – click the link to find them Group 1 Group 2 2. Think about the character you created during the week. Remember what you decided about their personality and what they liked doing. Write a description of what they would have done on a regular weekend. HINT: You will need to think about where they live, who they live with. Do they like weekends? Did the weather make them happy or sad? The possibilities are endless! 3. This week we have been learning how to add and subtract decimals on paper and using a calculator. Please answer the questions on your sheet.
4) Pick one of the Greek Gods we learnt about this week, find 3 facts about him or her and write them down. You can find information at your local library, you could ask to look through one of my books or you might want to try these websites for help:
Have a lovely weekend, see you Monday
Most of you have already asked your parents to sign up for parents’ evening next week – well done! Please make sure you all reserve a slot as it is very important that your parents have a chance to come and find out how you are doing in Year 6 : ) Mrs Couch
Hello 6C, here is your homework!
A) Click on the links below to go to your spelling list at SpellingCity Group 1 Group2 B) We have been thinking about Genres in Literacy. Write down the title and author of your favourite book at home. Tell me which genre you think it is…and why. What tells you it is one genre or another? Be specific – that means give me details! C) Copy out the separate sheet of maths questions. D) We have been learning about differences between Athens and Sparta. Pretend you live in Athens. Write a list of your daily routine from waking up until going to bed. For example: 6.00 – I get up and have to milk the cows 7.00 – I spend 2 hours shopping for food in the market. 9.00 – I have lessons in mathematics for 1.5hrs. This must be about the way people used to live in ancient Greek times so think about the rules of the city you choose! Have a lovely weekend. Mrs Couch

Hello 6C, I hope you have had a good weekend!
Here is a reminder of the little challenge I set for you a week ago. One person has already solved it and a few are very close – can you be one of the first 10 people to get the answer right and win 500 house points? A man said: “2 days ago I was 26. Next year I will be 29.” He cannot travel through time and he is telling the truth. What date is his birthday? Post your answers on the blog. Remember: always have confidence in your own answer, even if others write something else – you might be the only one who gets it right! See you tomorrow! Mrs Couch : )

Clue: Think about the difference between each number in the sequence and try to spot a pattern. It looks the rain is going to stay away for the weekend, so have fun! Mrs Couch : )
