Snowy Owls (Y6)

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 6th July

2020-07-05 20:39:56 kroberts

Hello, Snowies!

Thank you to everyone for sending photos and video clips for the Leavers’ DVD. What a great effort! I’m now busy making films and putting everything together. I’m hoping to get the DVD to you at some point next week. Watch this space!

I believe that Wales High, Aston Academy and Dinnington High have now all launched their transition activities.

If you haven’t yet heard from DHS, their transition site is here:

https://dhstransition.co.uk/

Each of the high schools has given you plenty to do, so I would definitely suggest that you prioritise getting to know as much as you can about your new school and having a go at the activities they have set.

I always love hearing from you, so please feel free to continue sending photos, work and messages.

Best wishes

Mrs Roberts

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 29th June

2020-06-29 18:08:35 kroberts

Good afternoon, Snowies

Thank you to everyone who sent photos for the leavers’ film. It is now complete and I can confirm that you were all very sweet when you were four years old!

I now have 21 fantastic films of your favourite memories from your time at Anston Greenlands. Keep them coming! Additionally, if any of you would like to send a film of a particular talent, I would love to see them and they will feature of the Leavers’ DVD. So far, I’ve had singing, drumming, rugby and guitar playing!

Make sure you get your ‘I’m Still Standing’ Lip Sync videos to me by 3rd July (this Friday). Either send the film to me directly or use www.wetransfer.com. I have only received one of these so far from the children not in school. Please don’t be late – it will take us quite some time to put it together!

I’ve allocated two lines to everyone who has said they would like to be involved and I’ve sent this out. Please let me know if you haven’t received this. Feel free to sing in your clip if you would like to, but you don’t have to.

Again, please prioritise transition work from your new high school. I know some of you have quite a lot to do and I believe this will increase over the next few weeks for the rest of you.

Otherwise, keep going with the Oak Academy work, TT Rockstars, Rising Stars and Active Learn – whatever works well for you. This week on Oak Academy (Week 10), there is a focus on data handling in maths – this should be a good recap before you start Y7. In English, the teachers are looking at sections of the Shakespeare play, Macbeth. After your work last year linked to ‘The Tempest’, you already have experience of working with Shakespearian language, so I am sure you will find this interesting. Please feel free to send emails or photos showing me what you have been doing.

Best wishes – I hope to hear from you soon

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 22nd June

2020-06-23 19:58:24 kroberts

Hello Snowies

The Leavers’ DVD is now shaping up nicely. I’ve had some fantastic films of memories and lots of brilliant photos of what you’ve been up to in lockdown. Keep them coming!

Make sure you get your ‘I’m Still Standing’ Lip Sync videos to me by 3rd July. Either email the film to me directly or use www.wetransfer.com.

I’ve allocated two lines to everyone who has said they would like to be involved and I’ve sent this out. Please let me know if you haven’t received it. Make sure you stick to the lines you’ve been allocated! We’ve finished all of the clips allocated to children in school and they’re looking good! Feel free to sing in your clip if you would like to, but you don’t have to.

A huge thank you to the PTA for the gorgeous hoodies and to our fantastic parents for organising this. Here are a couple of photos of the children in school wearing theirs.

Do feel free to prioritise transition work from your new high school. I know some of you have quite a lot to do!

Otherwise, keep going with the Oak Academy work, TT Rockstars, Rising Stars and Active Learn – whatever works well for you. I have received some really excellent pieces of writing. Please feel free to send emails or photos showing me what you have been doing.

Best wishes – I hope to hear from you soon

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 11th June

2020-06-11 10:39:19 kroberts

Good Morning, Snowies!

Thank you so much to those of you who have been sending your work from the Oak Academy. I’ve seen some fantastic pieces.

I’m currently phoning everyone’s parents/carers to find out how you are getting on. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you should do soon.

I have sent everyone two emails this week – one with some ideas about how you could contribute to the leavers’ DVD and another with the backing track and lyrics for ‘I’m Still Standing’. Please let me know if you have not received both of these.

Apart from the Oak Academy lessons, I’m not going to set any more work – I would like you all to concentrate on your contributions to the leavers’ DVD.

Best wishes – I hope to hear from you soon

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 3rd June

2020-06-03 09:35:30 kroberts

Good Morning, Snowies!

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

As you will know, some of the Y6 children returned to school on Monday; we’re all missing the rest of you!

We have started to talk about some ideas for putting a leavers’ assembly online. I really want you all to be involved – I’ll be in touch soon with some suggestions but if you have any ideas, please let me know.

You will all have seen the letter about using Oak Academy. I’m looking forward to seeing your writing. Some of the English lessons from previous weeks have been based around ‘Skellig’,  so you would be welcome to have a go at those if you would prefer. Also, there are lots of history lessons linked to World War I and World War II that you might find interesting.

There’s still plenty to do on Active Learn and Rising Stars if you would like some extra practice.

If you are feeling creative, there is a fantastic looking writing competition here:

For our designers, why not have a go at this:

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
