I am saving up my dojo points, so I can go on an end of year school trip. I have 61 dojo points up to now and the school trip costs 1000 points. So I need to collect lots more dojo points! I am positive that I can get enough dojos. Wish me good luck.
Hello, everyone first of all i just want to say a massive thank-you to the year 6 team with in the subjects. Secondary school is going really well i really miss the teachers and all the people that used to be in my class also all of the boys and girls that i used to have jokes with. Secondary is reall good my school is really massive and there reward schemes are really good and also the subjects i really enjoy, especially Science i am in set 2 which is the second highest set because there are 4 sets. So far we are studdying Animal and Plant cells we als made our own slides so we can use a microscope to look through the eye piece use the fine focus knob to controll where you want the slide on the stage to be, and use the stage clips to grip on to the slide so it wont fall. The teachers have odered a book that we want and i will be getting the book Jinx. I really miss it and will hopefully visit maybe on Friday the 16th because it is teachers day at our school therefore we have a day off.
On the 2nd October yr 6 went to a phenomenal place called Kingswood. To look after us our caring teachers and staff (Mrs.Williams, Mrs Laurence, Mrs Raymond, Mrs Davis, Mrs Hackett and Mr Ganger) gave up their own time, their own weekend just so yr 6 could have this amazing time. At Kingswood we did a variety of different activities which, included Zip-Wire ,Go-Karts, Climbing, Abseiling, Team Challenge, Quad Bikes, Fencing, Low Ropes and Archery. Another thing we enjoyed was the food which was mouth watering. There was a big selection of food like veg sausages, lasagne (Mrs Davis’s favorite dinner) ,Fish burger, Spicy Meatballs, soup and many more. In nearly all of the activities we had to use a special skill called TEAMWORK! We were all in 4 groups, there was group d, e, f, g and all of the teams got along really well.We stayed there for 2 nights and came back on the 4th October. There were 4 rooms for the children and the boys floor was upstairs and girls was downstairs. In every room there were 14 children and you had to do your own beds and wake up at 7. We all hope that the rest of the school enjoy their visit to Kingswood(If you go) because we know that we did!!
For our Be the Best you can be day we learned about teamwork. We played some games and got dojo points, our new reward scheme, if we won. We learned that it is good to work together and you get much more done. I really like Be the Best you can be day because we get a break from the normal lessons we do at school and get to do something special and fun!
Today we are learning about Vikings. They used to build long ships, long and narrow so they could go fast. They also used to steal and invade. They also had invaded a part of England and their main city was called York.
This year we started a new reward scheme called Class Dojo. Class Dojo is when you collect points for teamwork, helping, on task, participating, persistence and working hard. Have fun on Class Dojo and earn lots of points for prizes!!
For example-art session with Mrs Lambert, P.E. session with Mr Lemmon, cooking lessons, missing homework for a week. The ultimate prize is a surprised end of year trip!!! I wonder where it will be…….
