Miss M Ferris
Welcome to Week 7 - your final week!
I cannot wait to see you all on Thursday for our Leavers' celebrations when we will be finally all be back together.
Well done for all of the fantastic home learning you have completed over the last few months.
As this is the last week before the holidays, we have suggested a range of activities that you could complete with your family.
The most important thing for this week is to have lots of fun!
You are amazing.
There are some different activities for you to complete this week linked with your transition from Year 6 to Year 7.
The maths and English are direct from Churchill Academy who want to have a look at what you are capable of so try your best and 'show off' everything you can do!
Remember to have a look on the website of the secondary school you have chosen for any useful virtual tours and information too!
There are still some longer projects further down the page that you may be interested in for a change. They involve plenty to keep you busy for several days if you use your initiative and imagination as you work.
Have a look and give one a go or come up with your own mini project.
Welcome to the class page of Falcon Class 2019-20.
Our teacher is Miss Ferris and our LSA is Miss Reynolds.
Attached at the bottom of this page are the slides from our Parent Meeting on Wednesday 25th September.
We hope you find these useful!
So, here we go again!
Another little setback in the form of a flood and what it's left behind has stopped us from being in school this week. So, here are some longer projects that you may be interested in for a change. They involve plenty to keep you busy for several days if you use your initiative and imagination as you work. Have a look and give one a go.
Or, come up with your own mini project - perhaps an outdoor-based one with the return of the sunshine this week!
Take care and keep being wonderful,
I hope that those of you who continue to learn from home have enjoyed your home learning this week. I'm still missing all of your faces and we are all thinking of you! Well done for continuing to show such resilience in what is a very strange situation.
If at any point you feel that the timetable isn't working for you then please do feel free to change it to suit you and your interests. As long as you keep your brain ticking over with a little bit of reading, writing and maths in some form then that is brilliant. Do whatever makes you happy in the time left over and remember that the timetable is only suggested.
For those who you who have been in school this week, it has been so lovely to see you after such a long time apart. For those of you who are returning to school for the first time on Monday, I am looking forward to welcoming you back!
Enjoy your weekend,
Miss Ferris 🌈
I hope that you have all had a good week.
As you now know, school is partially re-opening from Monday and I will be teaching the Year 6 Bubble of Bears from Wednesday 10th June. I am really looking forward to seeing those of you who are returning!
For those of you who are staying at home next week, you will be missed and I will be thinking of you! As of next week, your work will be set by Mr Wilson, Mrs Arney and Mrs Gartland. It will be very similar to what you have been getting each week from me.
Sadly, I will not be able to respond to emails as promptly or as frequently as I have been. However, I would still love to hear from you and see what you have been doing. So, if you do wish to keep in touch, please send me the piece of work you are most proud of each week and I will do my very best to respond.
I am currently unsure whether or not we will be able to continue with our weekly Zoom calls but I will let you know soon.
I know that this is a very strange time for everyone and I hope that you understand why these changes are necessary going forward.
Take care and stay safe,
Miss Ferris 🌈
You are now in the final week of a whole term learning from home - YOU'RE AMAZING!
Thank you to those of you who continue to join our class Zooms - they are a great way for us all to keep in touch.
As we know, this week would have been Camp... We have tried to adapt your timetable to make it as fun as possible to keep your spirits high.
I particularly like the suggestion of camping in the garden... if I had a garden I might consider it but I'm not sure camping in the communal grounds would go down too well!!
Anyway... I thought this may make you smile...
Today is the day that SATs would have started,
The classroom set up and the tables parted,
The rules on the board, the display walls all covered,
Your workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard,
Instead you are home, you’re doing your bit,
Protecting your families from getting sick,
It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see,
Being a part of world history,
You’ve all worked so hard, you should be so proud,
You’ve practised your SPAG and times tables out loud,
You’ve learnt algebra to the Nth degree,
And now the tests, they will no longer be,
Some may be sad that they can’t take the tests,
“Hip hip hooray,” I’ve no doubt said the rest,
Whilst the tests are on hold and you stay home this term,
Remember that tests can’t measure everything you learn,
And I don’t need SATs results to tell me,
How hard you have worked, it’s easy to see,
'Lockdown' Year 6, let me shout it out loud,
You’ve made all your teachers so very proud,
So please continue to learn, fill that brain up full,
And remember, we think you’re all wonderful! 💕
We are now in Week 4 of Term 5 - don't these weeks fly?!
Thank you again for sharing insights into your home learning with me - I really enjoy seeing what you are busy doing over the course of the week.
Hopefully see you on Zoom this Thursday at 2pm (invites to follow).
I am in school all of this week so may take a little longer to respond to your emails - I will be responding as best I can between the hours of 10:00 - 11:30 and 1:30 - 3:00
Have a super week and keep smiling!
It was so lovely to see lots of you on Zoom on Thursday - it really brightened my day. Thank you so much to all of your parents for helping to make this happen.
It's more important than ever right now to be kind to yourself and others so I've included a kindness calendar in this week's Home Learning links - how many acts of kindness can you record for the month of May?
It certainly is a strange time at the moment and doesn't always feel easy to adapt to, so I just wanted to take the time to remind you how proud I am of all of you.
Keep working hard and keep smiling!
I hope you have been enjoying the sunshine this week. It has been lovely to hear from so many of you by email - thank you. If you haven't set up your email yet, try and make this your mission for this week! I have sent information about an exciting Zoom meeting to all of your parents. I hope lots of you can make it.
Keep working hard and keep smiling!
Well done to those of you who have managed to set up your email addresses and have made contact with me to say hello! Please make sure you have set these up ready for the new term - they will be used regularly to make contact and to keep you updated with any news. If you are having trouble setting these up, please ask your parents to contact me.
Mr Squiffles (my Mum's house rabbit) and I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Easter! I hope you have enjoyed lots of chocolate and family time together.
Take care, Miss Ferris
Well done to everyone who has played TT Rock Stars this week!
Are you ready to compete?
The Battle of the Bands: Eagles versus Falcons starts Monday 30th March 09:00 through to Friday 3rd April 15:15. Who will win?
The winner is ...
Congratulations Falcons! from Miss Dace
On Thursday 27th February, we were lucky enough to take part in a bread workshop run by Chartwells (the company who provide our school dinners). This was our launch for our new project - 'What if changes couldn't be reversed?' - which is Science focused. We are looking forward to lots of practical experiments!
During our trip to Shepton Mallet Prison, the Year 6 crew got an insight into what life would have been like as a Victorian prisoner. Shepton Mallet is Britain's oldest working prison which opened its doors in 1610. We learnt that it is a Category C prison and that it is also famous for the holding of the Kray brothers! We had a wonderful day exploring the site.
Upon arriving at school this morning, the Year 6 Crew discovered an exciting delivery of hoodies on their desks. They were worn with pride all day and I'm sure they will continue to be enjoyed throughout the academic year - a very colourful Friday!
On Tuesday 7th January, the Year 6 Crew embarked on their new project, “When would have been the worst time to be a criminal?” by holding a gripping debate; hearing testimony from varying witnesses hypothesising about the Wolf’s involvement in Grandma’s decease in the fictional tale of Little Red Riding Hood. This was a very engaging way to kick start our chronological journey as historians, looking at similarities and differences between the criminal justice systems of various eras and the British Justice System today. Everybody played a meaningful role and demonstrated excellent acting skills throughout!
