Wycoller 2021 - 2022
Wycoller is the year six class. We are taught by Mrs Macdonald. Mrs Blades and Mrs Kinsella. Mr Hussain helps in our classroom every week and Mrs Hales listens to us read.
PE: This takes place on Monday and is led by Mr Bowie. Please ensure you wear your PE kit on these days.
Reading: Every child will read to an adult on a regular basis. Children can change books as soon as they have read them; they just need to ask. If they have read at home and their reading record book is signed, they will receive a new book.
Library: Our library session takes place on Mondays. Please make sure your child brings their book on that day if they want to change it.
The children have been studying Shakespeare. They have loved the stories. We have read Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and Midsummer Night's Dream.
African drumming and dance
The children loved taking part in the African drumming and dance earlier in the term:
Young Leader's Award
This year, our year six children will be taking part in the Key Stage 2 Young Leaders Award. We’re really excited to be involved in this programme which has been designed and written by the Archbishop of York Youth Trust.
The Young Leaders Award aims to equip young people to ‘be the change they want to see’ in their local communities, and through a number of interactive lessons and practical challenges our pupils will be involved in serving their community and making a difference.
We will be starting the programme on 14.11.2021 and look forward to all that our pupils will learn and achieve. There may be opportunities for parents and family members to get involved in the community action projects that will take place later in the year, and we will be in touch with more details nearer the time. Pupils will also take part in small challenges at home to help their family or neighbours. We ask that you ensure that you provide any relevant supervision for these challenges. See the link below to find examples of the challenges:
At the end of the award each student will receive a certificate and we will host an awards ceremony. We will let you know more about this nearer the time. If you want to read a little more about this, select the ilink below:
What makes a good leader?
Our first task, for the Young Leaders Award was to work in groups to complete challanges and to decide what makes a good leader:
Autumn Term 2
Our English novel for this half term will be Mary Poppins. Ask the children if you want to know a little more about Mary Poppins.
The Islamic Civilisation
During the Autumn Term, we have been finding out more about the Islamic Civilisation. We have investigated why this is known as the Golden Age of Islam - considering the impact that Baghdad had on the World in AD 900. We spent time examining a range of artefacts - asking questions about them.
