Year 6 Challenge Accepted

YEAR 6 CHALLENGE - IF YOU WISH TO ACCEPT IT!

 

Hi guys, hope everyone is doing OK, enjoying the sunshine and not working too hard.  As a fun activity, the Year 6 teachers challenge you to build a den, the fancier the better. It can be anywhere in the house or garden (just ask permission first). It's the perfect place to get peace and quiet and have a good read. Then take a picture of yourself reading or working in it and either send it to the School Facebook page or email it to us Y6@woodlands.academy and we will put it on the website.  It's just a bit of fun and we'll be sending more fun challenges next week. 

Good luck....

From Mrs Radi, Mrs Pearson, Mrs Monaghan and Mrs Parkinson.

Class 12 visited the FS2 classes this afternoon to share their own Egyptian stories. The children had worked hard on producing a good quality narrative and wanted to have a purpose for their writing - and what better way than reading them to our youngest pupils. 

After they had read their own stories, the Reception children gave them feedback (what they liked, what they thought of the story etc) and then we spent some time sharing other books with each other. 

It was a great way to spend a Thursday afternoon, and we are all looking forward to our next visit... watch this space!

Week beginning 28th October 2019

Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term. This term we continue our topic all about Ancient Egypt.  The children will be learning about mummification; in English they will be writing explanation texts about how to mummify a body based on what they have learned, and through their project work they will be exploring the importance of the Afterlife to the Ancient Egyptians and why it was so important for them. 

 

Please continue to support your child in learning their spellings, completing their homework and reading at least three times each week. 

 

Thank you laugh
