Anti-Bullying Week

This week it is National Anti-Bullying Week 2017. It is so important that we all know what bullying is and how to stamp it out!
Our school has been taking part in lots of different activities this week including: odd sock day, designing anti-bullying posters (for the Sunderland City Competition) , re-writing our anti-bullying policy and of course learning all about different types of bullying and how to help prevent them.
In our school we have lots of techniques to help us prevent bullying: We have prefects supervising the toilets, buddies on the school yard looking for a friend in need, an anti-bullying team who meet regularly and worry boxes – to name just a few!

Our school took part in National odd sock day this week; on Tuesday we wore odd socks (of course) to show that everyone is different and everyone is equal. All of our socks were different but they all kept our feet warm and toasty just the same.

We think that it would be very boring if everyone looked the same and thought the same in our school.
Everyone in the world we share has different talents, beliefs, thoughts and abilities and you should never be rude to people about their ideas or force your beliefs upon someone else. It’s good to talk and learn from one another. Diversity makes the world a more interesting place.

In 6LG, we enjoy discussing diversity and equality – we have been learning just how diverse and amazing our world actually is.
On Thursday this week, we made an anti-bullying video based on diversity with Jane Adamson to show everything we have been discussing and learning. It will soon be posted on our website so we hope you check it out.

Our school is currently in the process of renewing our Anti-bullying Charter mark.

Nursery Rhyme Challengers

We love nursery rhymes! Do you? This week we have been taking part in the Nursery Rhyme Challenge. Each day we learnt a new Nursery Rhyme as well as singing lots of our favourites along the way. On Monday we explored floating and sinking when we learnt Bobby Shaftoe. We used the computer to march The Grand Old Duke of Yorks men up and down the hill. We explored colour mixing when we sang Lavenders Dilly on Tuesday. On Wednesday we made a clock for Hickory Dickory Dock and everyone loved playing What time is it Mr Wolf. On Thursday we were busy winding bobbins and on Friday we joined Old King Coles band playing instruments. After a busy week we drew pictures of our favourite nursery rhyme. Whats your favourite?

Marvellous Myths

We are writing our myths! After reading Ancient Greek myths such as Icarus, King Midas and the Golden Touch, Medusa and the Quest of Perseus and Orpheus and Eurydice, we’ve started to write our own myths including mythical creatures, magical objects, heroes and heroines and gods and goddesses. Mrs Wardle can’t wait to read them.

What is a biography?

6LG have been learning about biographies in Literacy. We read the biographies of many famous people including Roald Dahl and Usain Bolt. We then wrote the biography of Andy Warhol who we have been learning about in History and Art.

Remembrance Day

Thank you to everyone who supported the Royal British Legion this week by buying poppies, badges and wristbands. A big thanks also goes to the children who attended and took part in the remembrance service at St Michael’s church on Sunday; you represented our school so well.

Making a poppy wreath.

The children in nursery talked about why we wear a poppy at this time of year. We used our cutting skills to make a poppy wreath to hang on the nursery door for Remembrance day.
