Welcome Back Redwoods!

 

I hope that you all had a lovely summer break and are refreshed ready for the new school year.

 

Year 5 and 6 are very important school years for the children and I am very pleased to see their hard work and enthusiasm already shining through.

 

This term our class topic will be Space The Final Frontier. We are all super excited about this.

 

Please have a look at the topic plan attached to this page for an idea of what we will be covering throughout the term.

 

I will update this page with spelling lists and any "need to know" notes each week.

 

The children are all expected to learn their spellings each night, along with their times tables ready for their tests on Fridays.

 

The children all have a new Senior Class Homework Diary this year.

 

All Homework Diaries are kept in school Monday to Thursday and then sent home on Thursday night for signing and checking and returned to school Friday morning. 

 

Written homework will be sent home on Thursday nights also and is expected to be back in Monday morning

 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

 

Thank you for your continued support

Good Afternoon Parents of Redwoods Year 6 children,

 

As it is the last week in Primary School for the year 6 children, please find below the timetable of activities that we have planned for them.

We have done our best, in these trying times, to ensure that their transition from primary school and final few days are as exciting and organised as possible.

The children have worked incredibly hard this year and have all made tremendous progress, I am personally very proud of each and every one of them.

 

Thank you for your support throughout the year and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday afternoon.

Welcome back to the start of the Summer Term! I hope that you all had a fabulous Easter break? The weather is continuing to be absolutely splendid!

Gwynn has been enjoying the break and hot weather and found a good way to cool off on one of our walks (see photo!)

Unfortunately, we are still in Lockdown, so the online learning will continue for the next few weeks.

Please find attached the documents that you will need today for your online learning.

Please keep working hard, I am sure we will be back to normal soon.

 

Have a great day

Well done! You have completed the last 2 weeks of the term online! I hope that you have all managed the tasks OK?

Today is the last one. You then get 2 weeks rest - you will need it. There are activities on Twinkl that you can access if you want to stay up to date.

There is also the writing competition that you can do. You have your Maths work books and Home Learning packs to complete and Power Maths books.

You may also finish the Far from Home Book if you wish.

We still do not know when we will be back at school, but please keep your eye on the website and web pages as messages will be posted on there.

Have a superb Easter Break- Hope you get lots of Chocolate eggs.

Have a rest and relax and play out too.

Good morning Redwoods.

I hope that you are all OK? I am uploading all of the work for Thursday and Friday today because, as you can see from the "Digging For Gold" picture, we had a little incident in the garden at home with our internet cable. Gwynn didn't find gold in the end- she found my internet cable! OOPPSS!! 

This means I currently have no internet. Thank you Gwynn!

Should be back to normal next week though.

 

Have a great end of week and a good and relaxing weekend.

MIGHTY REDWOODS: FOREST SCHOOL

Lea Green

                                        ASPIRING ARTWORK

 

SELF BELIEF....I CAN AND I WILL.

ARTSMARK: BECOMING A DESIGNER

The Redwoods created their own design (mood) boards to follow as they produced their own designer bedrooms using their imagination and creative thinking.

They selected different materials and learnt how to critically evaluate the whole process through the stages of production.

They successfully took responsibility in organising themselves into teams if necessary, which required positive social skills, emotional intelligence and collaborative teamwork.

Buxworth Primary School selected four children to become ambassadors in promoting their own 'Change 4 Life' programme throughout the school. 

CHANGE 4 LIFE

                                                CHANGE 4 LIFE: AMBASSADORS COURSE

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

TRANSFERABLE SKILLED BASED SKILLS

 

As Storm Gareth descended on us, the Mighty Redwoods 'stood up' to the challenge and with the resilience that they have developed during their Forest School experiences, they used their transferable skills to further enhance their individual learning journeys and promote emotional intelligence.

This has produced firm evidence of some amazing practical life skills development.

 

The Mighty Redwoods used the reflective 'Log Circle' to identify which activities they enjoyed the most. 

World Book Day brought plenty of characters to the Redwoods class this year; but by far, the most popular was 'Gangsta Granny' by David Walliams - Who's your favourite? 

World Book Day 2019

Around the World in 80 Days 

 

Our new topic will be about the world we live in and takes it's inspiration from the classic novel 'Around the World in 80 Days' by Jules Verne. Click on the link below to see what we'll be learning in the run up to Easter 

Around the World in 80 Days - topic overview

FOREST SCHOOL THROUGH THE SEASONS

                                                  FOREST SCHOOL

 

The Mighty Redwoods have enjoyed their Forest School experiences. They have worked independently and in teams, learning new skills, such as, tying knots to secure shelters, whittling wood using sheath knives, sanding wooden discs to count growth rings, fire lighting skills and safety procedures.

 

All children are wrapped up warm and thoroughly enjoy learning in our 'outdoor classroom'. 

Chariot Building - Romans Themed STEM week.

Veni, Vedi Vici - Topic overview

Welcome back to the new  term - our new topic is 'Veni, Vedi, Vici!' and is all about the Romans and Italy. We have already created our own mosaics and have written about Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures with the Romans! 

A new term means a new topic: 'Off With Your Head!' (All about the Tudors) You should have all now received a letter about a fabulous school trip to Bramall Hall at the end of the month - please send reply slips and money back to school ASAP.  You can find a copy of the letter and an overview of the topic below.  

Off With Your Head! - A topic overview

Bramall Hall Letter

A Visit from the Royal British Legion

Two members of the Royal British Legion (and WWII veterans) visited the Redwoods today. They shared some of their daring stories of bravery and teamwork and answered as many questions as we could ask them. 

 

They gave us some some great advice too: 

 

" 99% of the time, if you are kind and respectful to others, they'll do the same back." 

"Always be kind to everyone; always listen to other people's views; always try to make sense of what other people are feeling - that's the way to make friends."  

DEN MAKING AND 'THE GREEN MAN' CARING FOR THE FOREST.

The Mighty Redwoods have enjoyed their forest school experiences. They have worked in teams to make shelters, often at speed, to keep dry from the heavy downpours of rain.

They have created and photographed their own transient artwork, inspired by 'Andy Goldsworthy' who is a British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist.

PLEASE ensure that your child has the appropriate clothing i.e. layers of clothing, waterproof jackets and trousers, hats and gloves. We now have a 'Welly Hut' with a secure lock, so that any boots or Wellington boots can be left on school grounds.
