ANTI BULLYING WEEK

 

This week is Anti Bullying week.   Throughout the week the children will be participating in activities to really understand what bullying is, what it is like to be bullied and to explore reasons why some children bully others.  

 

At Front Lawn we do not tolerate bullying under any circumstances and we encourage any child who feels that they have been a victim of bullying to speak up and tell an adult.

Children on the Edge

Children on the Edge 1
Children on the Edge 2

On Friday 13th September Year 6 were visited by Children on the Edge, a charity  that exists to help marginalised and forgotten children, who are living on the edge of their societies. These are children without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and missed by large overseas agencies.

 

We learned a great deal about the effects of war on Children. Did you know that there are now over 24.5 million refugees around the world seeking safety from current conflicts.   Astonishingly over 75% of these refugees are children.  

 

We learned about what it is like to have to leave your home and to live in a refugee camp, in very poor conditions and with many other families.

 

Our aim this term will be to raise awareness on the life of children affected by war and to raise money  to support this amazing charity.

 

To find out more visit:  https://www.childrenontheedge.org

​Working in partnership with local communities, we help create safe, child friendly environments. We support children to realise their rights, and restore the ingredients of a full childhood by generating hope, life, colour and fun. 

Today we were treated by Havant Academy who came to do some taster lessons for us.  First we heard the magical musical talents of Year 11 as they performed "Valerie" by Amy Winehouse.

 

This was followed by a lot of bangs and explosions as their Science Teacher set fire to helium and ethanol!

This term we will be asking the question: What is the true cost of war?

 

We will be learning about World Wars 1 and 2 as well as looking at current conflicts that are happening around the world.  In particular we will be focussing on the impact of conflict on society and what is it like to be a refugee.

Our essential question this term is: What is the true cost of war?

As part of our History topic, Year 6 had the opportunity to create their own timelines based on the battles of WW1. Here are some brilliant examples of timelines by Chris, Chloe and Phoebe. The children used a range of information to present this in any way they wished, ensuring it was clear, bright, colourful and eye catching. Well done!

Reading Workshop

Reading Workshop 1
This morning as part of the whole school reading workshop, Year 6 had the chance to analyse a text all about the Christmas Truce. The children annotated their work with tools and found out the definitions of tricky words.

Design Technology Skills Lesson- Which glue is the best?

This afternoon Sycamore class had the chance to explore all different types of glue. The children were able to evaluate which glue would be the best for making a shelter, by experimenting with super glue, PVA glue, glue sticks and even a hot glue gun! The children have made some brilliant fences ready for their shelters next week. 

Well done!

Home learning

 

It is imperative that our Year 6 children develop their independence and responsibility so they are ready for their next journey - Secondary school. With this in mind we expect the children to complete:

 

Daily times tables practise.

Daily reading 

Weekly spellings

Topic work when set. 

 

We want children to go above and beyond and be the best they can be, therefore if they wish to complete other home learning activities then this extra effort is praised and goes towards moving onto the next band.
