Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to our wonderful Year 6 Class

Hello everyone, my name is Miss Noon, and this will be my second year here at St Francis of Assisi and my first year in Year 6. I am delighted to be teaching Year 6 and can’t wait to start our learning journey together.

I spent my time at university studying education and learning theories to aid my passion for teaching. I love seeing children develop both academically and personally whilst exploring the world around them. My favourite hobby is reading, I love getting lost in new fictional worlds and hope to promote this love within the classroom.

My classroom will be a fun and safe learning space where everyone can strive to be the best versions of themselves.

 

Welcome to  Wonderful Y6 Class

Your Class Teacher is Miss Noon,

Supporting Miss Noon in class is Miss Phillips and Miss Craven.

I’ve just finished reading the book we were reading before the Coronavirus meant school closed, The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson. I enjoyed it and am sure some of you will love to complete it once we’re back in school.

Amazon have lots of audio books (FREE) you can listen to at home. https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

Please have a look at our suggested reading lists for children in Year 6. These books are a range of bestselling picture books and longer texts to encourage both shared reading, individual reading and reading for pleasure.

    What is Google Classroom?

    Google Classroom is a collaboration tool for teachers and pupils. Miss Appleyard and Miss O’Hara have created an online classroom and invited your child to the class. As well as using Google Classroom to complete tasks within school – we will create and assign homework tasks via Google Classroom too! Your child has their own username and password – they can access Google Classroom via the internet on any device.

    If you look near the top of your screen, you will have 3 subheadings: Stream, Classwork and People. If you click ‘Classwork’, it will you show all of the learning I have set for you.

     

     

     

     

     

    Click the assignment you want to get started on, to find this page….

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    On this screen, you will see a little message or some instructions from me to help guide you with the task and my expectations. Below that you can see I have added a PowerPoint to this assignment for you to have a look at to help with your learning. You might also see here some links to videos for you to watch or other activities that might be useful.

    On the right handside of the page, you can see there’s a word document there or a PDF. This is the worksheet that I want you to record your answers on. Click it and it should download into a word document. If it downloads as a PDF that you can’t write on, either click the ‘Open with Google Docs’.

     

     

     

     

    If your work opens in Google Docs…

    If it opens with Google Docs your page will now display like the image below. You can type into this document and draw diagrams etc just as you would do in a normal document. When you have finished your work, click file in the top left corner and then download. It will give you the option to download as a Microsoft Word or a PDF. Either of those are fine.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Once you have saved the document, go back to your Google Classroom into the assignment you have just completed and saved. To hand your work in you need to click ‘Add or Create’ on the right handside above where it says ‘Turn in’. Add the document you have just saved by clicking file and finding the file. It will then upload onto the right handside and you can click ‘Turn In’. Your learning will now be sent to me for me to mark and give you feedback. 🙂

    Day 2 – Good evening all. We have had another fun packed day. As you will see from the photos, we have got lots of snow (it’s about ankle high). We have took advantage and had lots of snowball fights as well as made snow angels. The snow didn’t dampen our activities though. We have still completed lots and had great fun: archery, treasure hunt, crate stacking, fire lighting (including warming hot chocolate) and hiking, We are now in for tea and then have an evening of team games booked in – it’s a bit too blizzardy out there for the night hike! With a 12:30am sleep time for some of the boys last night, and a 5:30am start from some of the boys this morning, the teachers are really hoping when we wake in the morning that the snow will have cleared so we’re not snowed here for longer than necessary! Haha!

    We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow and will send an update on our arrival time back at school so you can collect the children as soon as we’re back. For now… goodnight!

    Day 1 – Dear parents, We have arrived safely and have had a great first afternoon. We started off by getting settled into our bedrooms and then had some ice breaker activities. Welly throwing was a big hit! We then came in for a delicious tea including chocolate fudge cake – yum! Then for our biggest adventure yet… abseiling down a bridge… in the dark!! Everyone was super brave and we all made it back to the bus safely. They are now running around and letting off some more steam in the bedrooms. All of us teachers have got our fingers crossed that they’ll flake out soon!

    We will post again tomorrow! Goodnight! 🙂
