Welcome to 6CL! We are looking forward to working really hard in our final year at Arnot St Mary!
Our teacher is Miss Leech and our teaching assistant is Mrs Lea. We also have Mrs Rankin and Miss Jones helping us too.
We have P.E. every Thursday so kits need to be remembered.
Maths and English homework is given every Monday and is expected back in by Friday when we have our weekly spelling test. There will also be extra arithmetic homework on a Friday which is expected in by Monday.
Reading is just as important in Year 6 and it is expected that reading records are filled in every night.
This half term, we are really lucky to have gymnastics every week with our specialist coach Miss Dennis. So far, we have lucked at balances, ways of travel and jumps.
All of the school got to watch M&M production of Robin Hood. It was absolutely hilarious. ALL FOR ONE .... ONE FOR ALL!
Year 6 did an absolutely wonderful job of leading our Remembrance Day collective worship. The children behaved and performed beautifully and were an absolute credit to you and the school. Check our school twitter page for a video clip of the assembly and also comments from some of visitors.
We have done lots of different activities for the Victorians this half term and it has been amazing to see how interested the children really are. We have been on a hunt around the building for Victorian features, baked some Victorian biscuits, sang some Parlour music with Miss Haugh's harp and completed some artwork in the style of William Morris. The children have loved it.
We have been very lucky this half term to have Avril from Mitchy Titch Yoga. She has taught us lots already including different poses, muscle strengthening, stretching and relaxation techniques. The children have been fantastic and is working wonders on their flexibility!
Miss Leech and Miss Peverall delivered a P.E. lesson in the style of a Victorian Drill. We marched, did arm lifts and had to obey all of the commands from the teachers. If we didn't obey the commands, we were punished by being sent to the 'Dunce's Corner'. Luckily, no one received the cane!
This half term we are going to find all about super-strict Victorian classrooms - we need to make sure we're on our best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!
We will also discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the flushing toilet!
